New Version: On Legitimate and Illegitimate Protest

Ok all you babblers,

I have heard from many people who read the original version of this piece. In response to all your thoughts, I significantly reworked it to include new ideas that people shared with me and to clarify the most important ways we need to build solidarity right now.

Given the ongoing need for unity as we continue to work to get our friends out of jail, get all the charges dropped, and build the movement from within, seems like a good time to post this new and updated version.

water rights & other activism: Canadians have to reach out to teach US citizens

There is a huge push to force Canada to sell water as a commodity... its probably best for Canadian activists to be doing some gentle education for US activists if we want to educate the US about water issues & the impacts to regional ecology,

before the US media & divisive politicians begin to accuse *Canadians* of hoarding (aka, 'how dare you reserve the right to not trade or commodify!') a human right... which should be an essential commodity of trade for 'American Interests'... obviously, the US has corporate interests best suited to managing the resources for those backward, dumb & selfish Canadians...

On Legitimate and Illegitimate Protest


Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightening. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.
Frederick Douglass, 1857


This page grows out of dialogue with many community members between the Vancouver Olympics in February and the Toronto G8/G20 in June. It needs saying.

A novel solution to that leaking BP oil well

Nuke it.  I kid you not.

[url=http://www.michaelmoore.com/words/latest-news/special-report-should-bp-n... (via Michael Moore)[/url]

His face wracked by age and his voice rasping after decades of chain-smoking coarse tobacco, the former long-time Russian Minister of nuclear energy and veteran Soviet physicist Viktor Mikhailov knows just how to fix BP's (BP.L) oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico.

"A nuclear explosion over the leak," he says nonchalantly puffing a cigarette as he sits in a conference room at the Institute of Strategic Stability, where he is a director. "I don't know what BP is waiting for, they are wasting their time. Only about 10 kilotons of nuclear explosion capacity and the problem is solved."
