Den Mark, in Vancouver

I'll be at that rally, too. I'm a teacher (Science) & am always happy at protests to see high school brothers & sisters who know what's going on better than most adults do. Peace to all of you. Onward!

Mother Earth

We need to urge our leaders to leave the poor country of Iraq alone. Saddam has done nothing to hurts us and no evidence has shown any direct link to recent ills.

This war talk is all a charade to get unfettered access to Iraq's oil fields.

It is time the American people take back their voice, stand up, and be heard.

Currently the only voice the US person has is though some corporate sponsorship. As we have, all witnessed corporations' goals and aims are not humanitarian but rather worship wealth for the few and screw the rest.

Do not let this country take any more aggressions and lives in it wake of terror on the people of the earth.
