Shut Them Down: The Democrats Will Wine and Dine. Maybe We Can Show Some Spine?

CLASH Collective | The Democratic Party has managed to successfully ride the wave of opposition to the policies of the Bush administration. And yet, all they can offer us is a non-binding resolution to express their disapproval for an EXPANSION of this inhuman, deadly, unprovoked conflict.

Sharon Swerdlow | Thousands passed by it, by few people stopped to hear the names of the war dead.The Granny Peace Brigade's Endless War Memorial paid honor to the memories of thousands of war dead, from March 11 through March 16, 2007.
