Quaker Peace Vigil: Boston Common, Good Friday

Quaker Peace Vigil, Good Friday 2011, Boston CommonBoston, Mass.-April 22, 2011:

For the 50th year on Good Friday (it's never a good day when a person is executed), Boston Quakers held a silent peace vigil on Boston Common, from 11am-2pm. Vigilers held signs calling for an end to war, and anti-war leaflets were passed out to passersby who were curious about the vigil.

Reflections from Behind the Wall

Chuck TurnerI said in my April 14th reflection that as African-Americans, we have two roles to play in the liberation of this country from the control and oppression of the oligarchy. First, we have to work with those of all races who recognize our collective need for strategy and action if we are to establish a framework of economic democracy and equity in this country.

Remember Lebanon?

April 20, 2011 - Mondoweiss

Jeff KleinYou know, Lebanon – that small Middle East country wracked by a generation of bloody civil wars, the scene of periodic Israeli invasions and massacres, the battle ground for foreign armies. These days, when upheavals are rocking the Arab world in a crescent of unrest from Morocco to the Persian Gulf, you have to search hard for any news about Lebanon.

Here in Awarta

Ridgely FullerI just wanted to make sure everyone knows I am ok here.. part of why I sent the quick message yesterday is tht I really feel good knowing I have terrific people 'watching my back' in the U.S...it is certainly part of what sustains me here.. being able to reflect, share what I expereince here while knwing that if anything happened I would be well taken care of..many of you have been here or provided home support to those traveling here..it is very comforting!

Headed up north to Awarta!

For the past several days I have been immersed in daily life..and now have received an invitation to go to Awarta where a women's group is being organized to be a presence in this small farming village experiencing daily attacks by the Israeli army and/or nearby Itamar settlers. Even before, but certainly since an Itamar family was murdered about a month ago, the town has been under constant attack..arrests, army raids etc. You can read about this on the internet.
