"Exorcism of the Executive Branch" Video Online

Local religious leaders in Portland, Oregon hold a public ceremony called "the rite of social exorcism" to exorcise evil from the executive branch of the federal government. A creative and inspirational event contrasted with the stale rhetoric of fear and terror uttered by Bush II and events within the city. "War, greed, mass consumption, destruction of life and the excuse that 'I'm just doing my job' are all symptoms of a deeper deception influenced by these deadened spirits."

this particular indymedia video has always been one of my favorites, and i'm glad to see it's online now! i was at this event, and it was one of the most creative and inspiring anti-war events i've ever attended. there are many approaches to changing the world, and the radical spirituality of the folks who did this exorcism of the federal government points out how the focus of the left is usually too narrow (to say nothing about how pointlessly anti-religious the left often is).
