I'm a Muslim, too
What if millions of Americans who believe in peace, justice, and working to mitigate climate change registered as Muslim, if such a registry is set up? What better way to protect our Muslim brothers and sisters from persecution?

Close your account with banks that fund dapl
Money talks. DAPL is funded by major US banks- Wells Fargo, Chase, Citi, US Bank, JP Morgan. Take your money away from them. If enough of us do, they'll reconsider funding the pipeline.

Some victories at Standing Rock
Morton County investigated the dog attacks. The Army Corps of Engineers is delaying the pipeline. Obama wants it moved, which means more delays. And a major investor is threatening to pull out. Peace and prayer are working!

Did Bernie Win California?
Almost 1/3 of California ballots-2.4 million at least, have not yet been counted. There is reason to believe that once they are, Bernie Sanders will have won. And it will be a whole new ball game!
Should Clinton Withdraw her Candidacy?
"Those damn emails" are damning Hillary more and more. This article quotes several sources, including right-wing blogs,about the investigation and possible consequences, and suggests she withdraw from the presidential race.

Major Democrat Dirty Tricks in California
The California Democratic Party has stacked the odds against Bernie Sanders, by making it difficult for no party preference voters, a major source of his support, to vote for him. The media has cancelled exit polls.

Bernie and the New Generation Gap
Bernie emerged into adulthood during the 60's, when there was a marked generation gap. He's bringing the ideals of that time to the current generation of young people, and again, the older folks are not getting it. "The times they are a-changing."

Bernie's Obstacle Course
The powers-that be are very threatened by Bernie's "political revolution", and are throwing many obstacles in his path. this paper reviews them, and contains petitions to help remove them.
In Support of Bernie Sanders
I support the man, and I support his policies. He is who he says he is, without a hidden agenda. He's nobody's puppet. In pledging to reverse the trend of transferring wealth from the populace to the wealthy few, Bernie has won my appreciation, and that of millions of other voters.

Radioactivity, the greatest threat to life on earth, is easy to ignore. Recent activity by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission reinforces ignorance. This article seeks to raise awareness, educate about, and demystify the insidious threat of radioactive
Addressed to believers and nonbelievers alike! Those of us who are fighting to preserve life on the planet should stay open to divine creative energy, see through the cynical perversions of religion and scripture by predators, and thus empower ourselves.

Fukushima update 4-2-15- time for Japan to give up?

Fukushima Daiichi 2-27-15 Leaks, lies and dieoffs
As new leaks are discovered and/or disclosed at Fukushima Daiichi, the government continues to deny the problems, push for reactors to reopen, push for dumping more contaminated water into the Pacific, even asking that funds be diverted from the cleanup to preparations for the 2020 Olympics! Meanwhile, dead birds and dying sea mammals flood the West Coast. Please sign the petitions in the article!

Fukushima update 11-29-14 Secrecy and lies
Japan is dedicated to suppressing awareness about the mess at Fukushima Daiichi, and focusing on the 2020 Summer Olympics instead. The new Japanese Secrecy Act goes into effect the first week of December, and whistleblowers will be punished. It will take outside pressure to restore sanity to Japan. Please sign the two petitions in the text.

Fukushima update 11-24-14 and good overview article by John Bertucci

reflections on Fukushima Daiichi
Please sign petitions: " So, as a Japanese, I clearly oppose Japan's hosting of 2020 Olympic and say that Japan must resign it" " We have been researching this issue for several years now and are absolutely amazed that the Japanese government could even consider hosting the Olympics in Tokyo with so much radiation everywhere!" " Things have got much worse -- and at the same time you have an accelerated form of secrecy"

Fukushima update 11-8-14- Good news and bad news
World attention needs to focus on Fukushima Daiichi. It's more threatening to the biosphere than climate change, Ebola, or the Republicans. TEPCO is making progress on the spent fuel pools, and is addressing the groundwater contamination, but the radioactive site remains out of control. International intervention is needed. Please sign and disseminate the two petitions.

Fukushima and Japanese health
Japanese doctors are being prevented from reporting radiation-related illnesses. Despite the danger, Dr. Mita has written a second long article, partly quoted here, about the spread of radiation in Japan, and the illnesses he is seeing. There are two petitions in the article, to bring international pressure on Japan.

impact of recent typhoons on Fukushima Daiichi
Fukushima Daiichi keeps getting worse. Each year the typhoons are bigger and stronger, and the water dumped on the crippled reactor site mingles with the
groundwater, radioactive from contact with the molten cores. Earthquakes continue. Japan has no business spending money and energy on the 2020 Olympics

Japan should honorably resign as host of 2020 Summer Olympics
Why expose the world's finest young athletes and their fans to radiation? Tokyo is already contaminated from Fukushima Daiichi, and will only get worse. This is a propaganda ploy, to protect the nuclear industry and the Japanese economy. It continues the coverup and maintains denial. Moving the Olympics would be a wake-up call, to face the truth about nuclear pollution.

Why Japan should resign as host of 2020 Summer Olympics
There is a huge risk that the world's finest young athletes and their fans will be exposed to radiation from Fukushima Daiichi in 2020. The Japanese should face reality and honorably retreat from hosting the Games, so they can be resited in a timely manner.

Clean Up Time
Although we have trashed our beautiful planet, we have the capacity to clean it up. The miracle needed is humanity's willingness to face the mess we've made and our resolution to turn it back into a garden. We are approaching the winter solstice of 2012, the date fixed by the Mayans as a time of great change on the planet. Some of us look for a change of planetary consciousness for the better.

Recent large earthquake near Fukushima
The reactor complex at Fukushima Daiichi, where little progress has been made on cleaning up, continues to be at risk for another catastrophe, much greater than Chernobyl. A Dec. 7th earthquake, magnitude 7.3, should wake us up.
Monday, May 28, 2012
We have a choice. We can deny the imminent threat posed by the damaged Fukushima reactors, or we can unite and work together to demand that all possible measures be taken, as quickly as possible, to defuse the danger.

petition on Fukushima to Senators Boxer and Feinstein
Senator Wyden of Oregon toured the crippled Fukushima reactors recently, and was frightened by what he saw. This petition is an effort to raise consciousness to prevent a Chernobyl-like explosion, which could easily occur if Japan doesn't get more help with the cleanup, before another major earthquake sets off the spent fuel pools.

Street Spirit March 2012- A Review
This paper is largely devoted to how nonviolent strategy can make social change happen. It addresses the conflict within the Occupy movement between proponents of nonviolent resistance and people advocating violent rebellion, or "diversity of tactics", in a series of articles. I highly recommend the March 2012 issue of Street Spirit to anyone interested in social change.

NUKES, PROPHECY, AND THE WILL TO LIVE
Is it too late to turn things around? Where do we find the hope, the energy, the spirit, to keep fighting for life? A small group of peacemakers nationwide has been working for years to find the practical advice for our times inherent in sacred traditions.
