Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! I am on my mobile version of the door-to-door, going town-to-town holding readings/gatherings/discussions of my book "But What Can I Do?" This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels since 9/11 as I engage in dialogue and actions. It is steaming with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society we want ALL to thrive in

that which made/kes amerikkka great

For those of us who went to bed last night knowing where our children were, or where our mothers were, grannies respond were out in front of a cruel, inhumane, and just plain WRONG prison benignly named "residential" center protesting the fucked up incarceration of Black & brown children & mothers who r fleeing u.s.ofamerikkka inflicted & sponsored violence in their countries of origin.

THIS is what has made amerikkka great in the past, & continues to make us great today: the exploitation & occupation of the lands & resources & life of other peoples around the world. 

After we bring another country's life and resources under our control, after we flood that country with knowledge & weapons to kill their own people, after we bomb the infrastructure & contaminate everything from the water to the humans, we then commit more unthinkable violence against those attempting to escape, to survive, to protect their children by rounding them up & throwing them into jails we sooooooo kindly calll 'residential' & 'centers'.

And then several thousand CHILDREN have been snatched from their mother's arms and thrown into their own jail.

I joined the grannies last nite at such a cruel place called Berks in Reading PA. Come here, where children r imprisoned, children whose parents r trying desperately 2 protect them. SHUT DOWN BERKS!
