On the 3rd Friday of every month...
"We are the people who run this country. We are the deciders. And every single day, every single one of us needs to step outside and take some action to help stop this war. Raise hell. Think of something to make the ridiculous look ridiculous. Make our troops know we're for them and trying to get them out of there. Hit the streets to protest Bush's proposed surge. If you can, go to the peace march in Washington on Jan. 27. We need people in the streets, banging pots and pans and demanding, "Stop it, now!"' - The Unconquerable Molly Ivins
There have been over 900 proven lies put out into mass reality to create the War in Iraq.
The War in Iraq is a War of Occupation.
Nonpartisan political change is needed to stop this War.
Hundreds of thousands of Molly's "Beloved Ones" exist throughout this nation.
Each "Beloved One" can share this resolution with ten more people i.e. Family, Friends, & Co-workers to copy and sign.
The "Heart" of Congress is the LOCAL OFFICES of our Congressional Representatives and Senators.
The contact information for your personal Congressional Representative and Senators exists on - www.raisehellformollyivins.org
I/We will either physically visit or telephone, fax, email, and write a hand-written personal letter, or all of the above to my Congr. Repres. & Senators on the THIRD FRIDAY of every month until the War in Iraq is over.
Raise Hell for Molly Ivins

"Measured in blood and treasure, the war in Iraq has achieved the status of a major war and a major debacle."
That's not from the peace movement - it's from the National Defense University, written by a senior Pentagon official who served under Donald Rumsfeld.
Yet despite the overwhelming opposition of the American people, Speaker Pelosi plans to rush a vote through Congress for another $178 billion blank check.
We must stop this madness. Tell Congress: No More Funds for Iraq
Activists around the country are organizing Iraq Town Halls so we can speak directly to our Representatives:
Unfortunately most Representatives are afraid to face us at our Town Halls, so we're organizing May Day Protests outside their District Offices on Thursday, May 1 at noon.
May 1 is the original Labor Day, and several unions are going on strike to protest the Iraq War. It's also "Mission Accomplished Day" (2003) and "Downing Street Minutes Day" (2005). Can you join us?
Thanks for all you do!
Social Business Enterprises are based on the benefit maximisation principle. They are operated as a business enterprise with the objective to pass on all the benefits to the customer. SBEs are non-loss-non-dividend companies that compete with profit maximising enterprises and other social business enterprises.
1. it needs to have social objectives: e.g. health, education, poverty, environment or climate urgency
2. it needs to be owned by the poor or disadvantaged, e.g. women, young people, or long-term unemployed
3. After having had their investments paid back, investors may not take profits out of the enterprise.
The idea of social entrepreneurism is not new, it has been around for centuries, you probably use several social businesses each day and just don't realize it. (examples: MFCU, YMCA, KPBS)
Creating a world without poverty - Muhammad Yunus
Mr. Yunus also emphasizes access to credit as a basic human right, placing it as No. 1 when compared to other human rights such as the right to food, shelter, work, and health. He argues that through microcredit self-employment is possible. Self-employment can generate income, which in turn can provide food, shelter, and health care.
"The whole thing is about making those opportunities available, so that they can change their lives." -Muhammad Yunus

Gulf War Illness
Depleted Uranium (DU)
Is the United States knowingly using a dangerous battlefield weapon banned by the United Nations because of its long-term effects on the local inhabitants and the environment? Explore the illegal worldwide sale and use of one of the deadliest weapons ever invented.
Beyond the disclosure of black-ops projects spanning the past 6 decades, Beyond Treason also addresses the complex subject of Gulf War Illness. It includes interviews with experts, both civilian and military, who say that the government is hiding the truth from the public and they can prove it.
One of the most shocking documentaries I've seen, it literally proves that the 'people' running the United States (and I use that term loosely) are guilty of war crimes beyond treason. Experimenting on U.S. Soldiers without their knowledge, selling weapons of mass destruction to Iraq, using known radioactive munitions that cause horrible mutations, birth defects and tumors indiscriminately against civilians and our own troops.
The have used the people middle-east, and our soldiers, as a large pool of experimental animals. What will they do now. If you care about the U.S. Military, if you were in the first Gulf-war, you need to see this film.
What you don't know about your government could kill you...
This is BEYOND TREASON.
