Kathy Kelly: Sing Another Song

Recognizing our need to support one another, to overcome the scourges of our time, to pick up a pace commensurate to the needs of those surrounding us, focused on our sick society with the same determination to heal that we would bring to a very sick child, we all have the task of going beyond our places of comfort, of escaping the stable and trotting if we can’t manage to gallop, of building new affinities in which to imagine and then co-create a better world.

February 2nd, 2015: Would love to visit Kathy in jail

▶ Global Day of Action Against Torture and Drone Assassination, Minneapolis & Columbus, OH | So I Was Waterboarded

Published on Feb 1, 2015

Many passers-by agreed with our messages yesterday! We began by protesting U.S. torture and ended by protesting the drone assassination program, mirroring the evolution in US foreign policy from Bush’s “capture and torture” to Obama’s “kill list.” An ongoing false debate among war architects has thus emerged as to whether it’s better to “capture or kill” but clearly the answer is none of the above. 1,758 more words
