This week long mobilization will involve progressives from every region of Oregon as we walk from Salem to Portland (June 12-18) declaring a People's Sate of Emergency and the need for a Department of Peace and other innovative strategies.

Oregonians from all corners of the state will stand up, come together, and unite in a shared vision. We will march in response to the attacks to the democratic values we hold dear: Truth, Justice & Community .

Are we ready to challenge our present thinking and reshape our future? We are talking about nothing less than shifting the basis of our culture from fear to love, from aggression to nonviolence, from war to peace. Department of Peace legislation proposed by Congressman Dennis Kucinich will be reintroduced on September 12, 2005, and offers the opportunity to fundamentally transform our culture, reshape the essence of our democracy, and find innovative solutions to the critical issues and concerns we face in our local, state, national, and global communities.

"Peace is not just the absence of war; it is the active presence of a capacity for love and compassion, and reciprocity. It is an awareness that our lives are not to be lived simply for ourselves through expressing our individuality, but we confirm the purpose of our lives through the work of expressing our shared sense of community in a purposeful and practical way; to sustain our own lives we sustain the lives of others - in family, in a community of neighborhoods called a city, and in a community of nations called the world." ~ Dennis Kucinich

to dennise the menace 02.Jun.2005 17:18

dennise where were you?

Its odd that dennise comes from a state that can't count votes of democrats.

I would reccomend that this guy spend some time on that.

Department of peace is a great idea ut in this owellian world it is questionable if it would not be a department of perpetual war.
