US Social Forum, You Comin'?

In a little over 2 hours, I'll be getting on the bus to Atlanta.

You comin'?


"Don’t drink the bottled water,
it’s stolen. It came from the mountain
and flowed through the town,
where people drank and swam,
where they pissed under the sun, where
they let their sewage collect downstream
where it quaked and stank
until the rains flooded
and swept the banks clean. Who
can deny it? Man is a beast.
He thirsts and goes mad without water."

Green Party Fundraising Concert, Thursday June 21

Award-winning folk artist, Tom Neilson, will be appearing in concert this coming Thursday, June 21, at 8:00 PM, at the Innate Center, located at 18700 Woodward Ave, in Detroit, across Woodward from Palmer Park. (The NE corner of Goldengate and Woodward, which is three blocks So. of
Seven Mile.)

Born on a farm, but a world citizen and traveler, Tom is somebody who has opened for Amy Goodman, Cindy Sheehan, and Ralph Nader, is a veteran of stage and street theater, and is apt to be found with his often politically charged songs at the gates of military bases and of nuclear plants, and on union picket lines. He has also been found at various venues, singing for the freedom of political prisoners like Leonard Peltier and Mumia Abu-Jamal.

There is a flyer at <>, if you would like to share it with your friends and neighbors or pass it
out at events. Also, you will find a couple of MP3 samples at the bottom of the page at <>

Beyond Pro-Choice

If you haven’t been to the Clinic lately, I wanted to update on some things that are going on.

First, we have a new group. They are from iHope Detroit and that’s red tape over their mouths. Over the last couple of weeks, there have been more and more people coming.

As for the exisiting group, they have been getting more aggressive. I have met with the leader, Dan, to hammer out a flyer that we can use to stop the violations. But without escorts, it is hard to keep everyone in line.

Now that there are more people, we need YOU more than ever to support the women that come to the clinic. In addition, I am expecting a vigil (with 200 or so people) on a Saturday this month. I try my best, but I don’t always know in advance, so having escorts there every Saturday is very important.

We have three more Saturdays this month…can you help?

Green Party thanks "Peace Mom" Cindy Sheehan for her courage and sacrifice

Green Party leaders offered their thanks to antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan for dedicating three years of her life to ending the Iraq War, in the wake of Ms. Sheehan's announcement that she is retiring from the movement to end the war.

Ms. Sheehan joined the antiwar movement and emerged as a representative of those who suffered the loss of family members after her son Casey, a Specialist in the US Army, was killed in Iraq in April 2004. The Green Party has consistently supported Ms. Sheehan's call for a quick end to the occupation.

Bill Holloway, Chairperson of the Travis County (Austin, Texas) Green Party and participant in Camp Casey in August 2006: 'Cindy Sheehan gave a human face to the peace and justice movement that neither the media, the White House, or Congress could ignore. Ms. Sheehan exposed the Bush Administration's lies and made it impossible for President Bush to hide the fact that the war has cost the lives of thousands of young American service members, as well as hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians.'
