Letter in Wicked Local Dover, December 12, 2014 

With the haunting last words of Eric Garner, “I can’t breathe,” I pledge that so long as I draw breath, I will apply racism to the adage, “if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.”

UJP Statement on the campaign to prevent a U.S. attack on Syria

Today the U.S. is NOT bombing Syria. Yes, the U.S. is still training armed groups to send into Syria. It is maintaining severe sanctions. Its warships patrol the area. And CIA spooks of all kinds roam the whole region while commando attacks take place in nearby countries.
