US / NATO OUT OF AFGHANISTAN NOW! How Many More Will Die for a Lie?

October 12th, 2012

From Mike Prysner and Gerry Condon - www.ourlivesourrights.org

Veterans For Peace opposed the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in October 2001. We did not believe it was justified. As military veterans, we did not think that war and occupation were what the world needed.

The American Spring: A Time for Occupy To Blossom

March 18th, 2012

By Kevin Zeese

National Occupation of Washington, DC Will Bring Occupiers Together to Share Experiences, Educate Each Other and Build an Independent Movement to Shift Power from Concentrated Wealth

Many in the corporate media like to think the Occupy is over, but those of us involved know better. We do not rely on the corporate media to validate the work of Occupy, we see it in our communities. And, we know to look to our own media for accurate information. The Occupied Wall Street Journal reports on the actions of the Occupy, it’s weekly “Reports from the Front Lines” is something many of us look forward to so we can see the movement taking action across the country.
