The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

In Maine we are making plans for a 30-day Bring Our War $$ Home caravan through the state during September 11 - October 10. We are asking local groups to organize events during that period so that we can capture the public's imagination and build consciousness about the cost of war spending (now $2 billion per week in Afghanistan). While we have been successful in getting Reps. Pingree and Michaud to vote against war spending, our two senators from Maine are not with us. By concentrating on the public, and moving them from neutral into gear, we might be able to change that. We must at least do our best to try.

We are asking every peace group in Maine, and our allies in the social justice world, to send a representative to our next meeting that will be held on Saturday, June 25 from 9:30 am - 12:30 pm at the Railroad Square Cinema (17 Railroad Sq) in Waterville. Following the meeting Lisa Savage will be showing the film (Cultures of Resistance: a film by Lara Lee) at 12:45 pm. Bring your own lunch or there are lunch places just next door.

Let's make sure that Maine is moving in sync with the rest of the nation in October.
