Location: Brunswick, Maine, United States

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.

STOP TRIDENT REPLACEMENT IN UK



Scotland votes on independence in 2014 and may tell UK to remove Trident nuclear missiles.  The majority of Scots oppose the existence of nuclear weapons in their country.  But decisions on "defense" remain with London.  The UK government has made clear their plan to renew the Trident program.

Peace groups throughout the UK are now organizing to block the Trident replacement program that would cost $157 billion over the next 30 years.  Better those funds be used for health care, education, and dealing with climate change.
