actions & protests

Global resistance is rising. In response, the global corporate media have done everything in their power to downplay the size, scale, number, and importance of protests, marches, actions, organizing, and other forms of resistance. In the United States, the peace and social justice movements in other countries are rarely mentioned. You only have to look at the coverage of peace marches in European countries, the U.S. backed coup in Venezuela, the growing movements in Latin America and South America, and countless others to begin to see the pattern. Likewise, news about organizing, tactics, and actions occurring within the U.S. are often concealed from the global community

These pages represent a testament to the variety of ways that people are learning to come together to resist the various forces of oppression they face in their daily lives. These pages will not be silent to the large numbers of people from every conceivable background who are waking up from the long nightmare that is our civilization and starting to act to bring about change. Another world is possible and it is worth fighting for.
