ON THE ROAD TO VINEYARD

* I am on the bus from Portland heading south on my way to Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts for a talk tonight at the library in that community. The title of my talk is the one in the photo above. I change buses in Boston and take another one to Woods Hole, Ma. where I then take a ferry boat to the Vineyard. Hope to get a swim in the ocean while there and return home on Thursday afternoon.

* We had a conference call last night of our Maine Campaign to Bring Our War $$ Home and about a dozen people were on the call. Included in the group were four people representing national groups as interest around the country continues to grow in our efforts here in Maine. We reviewed the entire campaign and did a bit of brainstorming about future steps. We are now in the process of setting up meetings with our Congressional delegation. A series of events in the coming months will be held across the state that will incorporate our message. I'll write more about some of them soon. This coming Saturday we will be having a group of us with our banner in the Hallowell parade, gathering at 9:30 am.

* It's raining outside and my mood is reflective after seeing the video below about Israel ripping up the Palestinian apricot trees. This kind of thing has been going on for years. It's a form of genocide, the slow variety, but it still has the same results. Destroy a people's ability to sustain themselves, force them into refugee camps, limit their intake of essential food groups and medical care and you reduce the life span of the people. The Jews know how this works quite well because this is what Hitler did to them inside the Warsaw ghetto in Poland. Hitler's team created the "Caloric Reduction Intake Schedule" where they systematically created a plan to reduce food intake over a period of time knowing that it would cause the Jews to die. Genocide of another variety. It was evil then and it is evil now.
