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.

Just a Modest Request

  • Photo comes from Gangjeong village where they held vigil opposing drones and translated our Keep Space for Peace Week poster into Korean.  The folks in the village have been leaders in connecting the dots and helping to show others what true solidarity means.  The Jeju Island campaign against the Navy base that the US will use in its "pivot" to surround China has been doing great outreach to other campaigns throughout the Asia-Pacific and even with activists from Afghanistan to Italy.

  • Long time Washington DC Catholic Worker activist Art Laffin wrote yesterday about their early morning rush hour vigil at an entrance at the Pentagon.  "We proudly held Keep Space for Peace and No Weapons in Space signs at the Pentagon vigil this a.m. Several Generals walked by amidst the masses entering the building. I did make a modest request to them," Art said.  Art and others from the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker house have been holding weekly vigils at the Pentagon for many, many moons.

  • Activity is picking up for me as we near the start of the October 11-20 Maine Walk for Peace & A Sustainable Future.  Saw yesterday that a weekly newspaper along the route has done a good advance story about the walk including full color photo on the front page.  You can see it here
