The Other Side of The Story

"...the U.S. government has no clue what to do over there, and peace for the Palestinians and Israel is going to take the support of entire world, and ignoring it, neglecting it, punishing one side or the other, which has been the policy of many countries, has failed, and that’s why we have this conflict. So, we want to see people stop fighting. We want people to sit down and talk and recognize each other’s right to exist, each other’s right to live where they want to live in peace. Who needs the borders, frankly? Who needs the borders?"--Adam Eidinger a wheat paster for peace.

On Sunday, July 16, 2006 the Washington Post magazine printed a five page article call: A Beautiful Friendship? In search of the truth about the Israel lobby's influence on Washington By Glenn Frankel

Of course the Post like most main stream media focused only on what is happening with the fools on The Hill, once again turning a blind eye on the public and the grassroots activist groups.

On Tuesday July 18, 2006, at right outside the White House in Washington DC there was a rally of a few hundred people from various groups and organizations who gathered to protest the Israeli actions against Lebanon.

This is not a complete post as of yet, but I thought I might just get these images out for now

Patriots, Peaceniks, Pagans and Potheads: July 4th 2006

This July 4th 2006 was a very wild time here in DC for grassroots activists. And as I extend my apologies for taking so long to get this post up, you will see that this time I am trying a new style for my blog that involved much more tech than I am used to. Also, this time I have a few interviews with Kristinn Taylor of Free Republic, Malachy Kilbride from D.A.W.N., and a very special and informative interview with the Rev. Barry Lynn from Americans United.

The 4 events I covered for the 4th were all very passionate and high energy events.

It all started on July 3rd with Free Republic protesting the New York Times.

And then later that evening it was a beautiful bread breaking for a last meal before the big "Fast for Peace" with Code Pink and the Dc Anti War Network aka D.A.W.N.

You will find the Code Pink story CLICK HERE

And on the day of July 4th, the Pagans rallied for the rights of the pentagram with the Rev Barry Lynn just a few blocks from the White House. To see this article please CLICK HERE.

And last but not least, July 4th tradition for the past 37 yrs, the legalize marijauna "Smoke-in". To see some interesting photos and for information on the history of marijauna laws and some resources on what the laws are like today, CLICK HERE.

I hope at some point in the future, I can get all of this done quicker and without some of the tech challenges I have faced this past week.

Please enjoy, and have a wonderful and safe rest of the summer.

Peace OUT
