I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine. She's running as a Maine Green Independent Party member and needs to gather 2,000 petition signatures of registered Greens during that period. I'll be back to GN after March 15.

VILLAGERS DEFEND THEMSELVES FROM RIGHT-WING

Before they arrived local villagers paraded and got ready to hold their ground as they continue to protect all that is sacred to them - the farming land, the rocky coastline, the coral reefs offshore, the fish, plant life and water.

The people of Gangjeong are defending their way of life - more than 300 years of living in this small farming and fishing village.
