Dear Friends,

Reports are coming out about the enormous profits reaped by Exxon-Mobil this past year, due in some part to the Iraqi invasion and occupation. We the people are paying for this imperial advendture, and having basic services cut, while Exxon-Mobil rakes it in.

At our Martin Luther King Day event, one speaker pointed out that King was a master strategist, and his main non-violent weapon was the boycott- as in Montgomery buses. Gandhi also used the boycott very effectively. The speaker (whose name I forget) said that if King were alive today, he would tell us to boycott Exxon Mobil, the company that is closest to the Bushes, is profiting from the Iraq war and also pushing drilling in the Arctic.

I don't know how to get a boycott started, so am putting out the idea, to see who picks it up. If we all did this together, it might force the Bushies to leave Iraq.

Buy Citgo instead. This is the Venezuelan company which has been helping the poor people of our country, the victims of Katrina and of high heating oil costs. Let by Venezuela, the countries of South America are banding together to create a new economy that works for the people, They are escaping from the corporate monster that is gobbling up the world. Let's help them, and ourselves. Together, we CAN turn this planet around.


Psalm 119: 21 God (acting through we the people) rebukes the arrogant, who are cursed, and who stray from His/Her command.
