A call to action!
solidarity
madman101 wrote in crisis_911


There remain a LOT of events and topics for us to post about - city, state, nation - WORLD. It's all the same FIGHT. As usual, I have been overwhelmed by illness and the rapidly unfolding, ghastly events of the day. I urge you all to do what you can to continue to confront injustice and unreason. But, by far, the most pressing issue tonight is this impending attack on Syria, with all the irrationality and hypocrisy whirling around it. It pertains to every person on the planet, and every community on LiveJournal. If you can post your thoughts, or links, or suggestions, etc., about this issue, perhaps in the context or bigger pictures - or perhaps just cursory links in passing - please do so, in most any of my communities, including madison_fights, indie_lifestyle, wiki_truth, liberal_plus, etc. And - if any of you can start any, "SIGNAL BOOSTS," going across LJ, that would be superb!

I have tried to help paint a picture of how our political world is spinning off course, seriously, at o_c_c_u_p_y. Please show solidarity by joining, posting there, commenting ANYWHERE, etc. This is a major crisis.

I have also tried to paint a broader philosophical picture over at my journal, which you are invited to view, via #tags, and via this link, especially tailored to o_c_c_u_p_y members. http://madman101.livejournal.com/tag/-posted%20to%20o_c_c_u_p_y .

I would post so much more, but life is hard. Thank you so much. Please contact your Representatives on Syria, privacy issues, militancy, wealth inequality, Kochs, and you all know the rest. Thank you for all of your separate activism and daily efforts. We don't have to see what you do to know that you want to do what you can. Take care. PS - Love this moment while it lasts, for life is short, and our planet is small.

Yet again, I'm proud to be a Canadian right now, as our leaders have stated that we will not be taking any action against Syria.

oh to be young and Canadian, sipping fraps at the cafe, discussing world politics with the likes of Anais Nin, devising new art and cultural trends, as easilly as shedding body ash!

i think all me best friends are Canadian - pretty much now - ha ha. you are the next great empire.

I'm so lucky to be in this country, for dozens of reasons. I'm bisexual and transgender, and have laws to protect me; I'm disabled and get my medical care--even transition costs--paid for; I feel safe where I live, and the nature around me is beautiful.

Wow - you should totally be my LJ friend. I am adding you.
