Interview with Naomi Klein: The Struggles Against Climate Change and Racism Are Inseparable
By Natalie Hanman, The Guardian, Published September 15, 2019 in Truthout

Naomi Klein, author of the new book, On Fire: The Burning Case for a Green New Deal, talks about solutions to the climate crisis, Greta Thunberg, birth strikes and how she finds hope. “In a North American context, it’s the greatest taboo of all to actually admit that there are going to be limits… But we are going to have to contract on the endless, disposable consumption side.” more

No war with Iran!

We will not be forced into another war. On Thursday, January 9, at 5 p.m. local time, the anti-war majority in this country will get visible to oppose Trump's war and say #NoWarWithIran.

Here a message from Phyllis Bennis, sent from Jewish Voice for Peace:

I remember the night President George W. Bush launched an illegal assault on Iraq in 2003. It marked the beginning of a drawn-out and endless war that continues to this day, with hundreds of thousands of people killed and millions made homeless, continuing over almost two decades. It ushered in a new level of anti-Muslim, anti-Arab hate in the U.S. which also continues to this day. 

We need to act now and act fast… and do more than we’ve done before to fill the streets in broad anti-war protests and pressure our members of Congress.

Trump’s assassination of Qassem Soleimani, a senior Iranian military leader, was an act of war, and it launched without Congressional authorization. We need our members of Congress to stand up to Trump, defend their Constitutional power, and put an end to this. Now.

Tell Congress: Stop Trump from going to war in Iran.

This cannot wait.

In solidarity and peace,

head shot
