1st Annual Activist Ball a Success in Community Building !

The 1st Annual Activist was a success beyond expectations in many ways. The most dynamic impact of the Activist Ball was the excitement around community building. The Activist Ball was participated in by civic groups, social justice groups, elected officials, local business, even a marching band. The end result was not only wonderful memories, but sustaining the ability of encuentro 5 and CAMP/OBR.fm to continue their efforts to bring together and build a better community for all!

wars can wear.
We’re organizing an educational action that reaches the 100,000s of people who will be in Boston

But we also want everyone to be fully conscious of the many wars:

Wall Street and Government’s War on Us!

The wars on women.

The wars on people of color and immigrants.

The wars on working people.

The wars in Africa and Middle East.

The war on the environment.
These are all connected!
Help make this happen!

Dialogue on Newtown

Hand grenade for Hello Kitty.
Niche market for ammunition
Assault weapons swept in on tide of fortune.

Truth rubbing a lie,
“Guns don’t kill, people do.”
The gun turns and addresses its owner,

“A gun is a product.
A gun embodies the labor of the people who produced it.
The sale of a gun creates profit.”

In my minds eye I see the ancient Greeks battling it out.
Bare skinned under an honest sun.
It’s when they started talking that things got bad.
