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.

OTHER GRIEVANCES AGAINST WALL STREET


Over 700 hundred Continental and United pilots, joined by additional pilots from other Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) carriers, demonstrated along Wall Street on Tuesday. Notice the cops didn't beat them up, pepper spray their faces, nor arrest them.

The grievances against corporate power across the nation, and around the world, are enormous. The door has been opened and we should now expect that every sector of society that is being trampled upon by corporate power will step up and air their stories about corporate greed and ruthlessness.

Every now and then in history a spark gets lit that swings the pendulum of real change in our direction. The hard work, courage, and sacrifices made by the predominately young activists occupying Wall Street have lit this spark.

Do what you can each day to get out onto the streets and give the people a reason to see that something is indeed happening across the country. Don't let the corporate forces of greed and domination slam the doors shut again.

Our job is to keep the candles lit.
