Stanley W. Rogouski and a report by Jed Brandt | Jed Brandt writes: "Of the core crowd, 75% were high school and college students who had walked out from city-wide high schools and Manhattan campuses. The crowd was energetic, and noticably distinct from the "usual suspects" of the New York activist left who were totally missing in action as coherent groupings. Interestingly enough, this made the crowd distinctly more lively than ritual protests peopled by the activist scene, and more intimate and human-level than the largest mass mobilizations organized by UFPJ and ANSWER. There was a noticable drop in "grumbling at the margins." [Coverage at US IMC || More Photos]

Ludwig Watzal | Fundamentalism instrumentalizes religion to justify violence and revenge, distorts God's nature and replaces the option for the poor with the warrior cult. Faith, the leap over 70,000 fathoms of water (Hierkegaard), is more interruption than custom and more love and devotion than emotion. Faith is personal but not private. The gospel is the transvaluation of all values. The state must not become a trouph for special interests; the state must be a social state that provides an infrastructure for children of tomorrow. more... 0 Comments

A bill of impeachment should be introduced right away more... 4 CommentsPage 23 | Page 21
