WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Join the ranks of people who are saying "No Iran War!" -- before it happens!
Take action to turn "Torture-Free Chicago" into a "Torture-Free World."
Do something -- every week! -- to bring about the end of U.S. war in Afghanistan.
Continue the struggle to close Guantanamo Bay Detention Center, end indefinite detention, and fight "Guantanamo for EVERYONE!" under the NDAA.
. . . AND ESPECIALLY . . .
Oppose the anti-liberty ordinance that Mayor Rahm Emanuel is trying to foist on Chicagoans!
The key line in the essay is: “Before anyone else thinks to worry, you
are worrying; only after everyone else is enjoying joy, do you
experience joy." I thought of it yesterday when people who have been working hard as part
of the resistance to U.S. wars and aggression met up in Chicago's
Federal Plaza to address the winding down of the war in Iraq.

Faced with chorus of voices saying, "Isn't it time for you to tone it
down? Can't you be more reasonable? What is it you want, anyway?" Jesus
kept right on doing what he was doing. And that was a sign to us about
how to live our lives . . . .
