Staying Cool, Disciplined and Informed When the Struggle is Down and the Issues+

by Paul Hays PSC-SE Friday, Apr. 27, 2001 at 6:48 PM

Opening ourselves to trust in those whom we disagree is no easy rider.

Just yesterday, I posted to Indy D.C. The issue is what happens we organization A. or person B. or religion Z disagree on their understanding of history, events or leaders?

This is coming up time and time again--with me and my quest for a genralized people's strike--sort of like only critical workers go to work for 5 days and then liberationists move to restore services to parts of the economy that are not 1. Bombarding Vieques, 2.Blockading Cuba, Iraq, Iran and Libya 3. Killing large #'s of poor people--often people of colors. 4. Destroying and/or intimidating urban areas and Appalachian and Native American homelands.

Still, some people operate unedr the assumption that violence is needed to protect ourselves,

So, where do we go from here-- 1st-I state people have the right to free association and speech.

2nd-I state we wont harm others by repression.

3rd-We will try to provide answers even if they appear to be rather flimsy or half-baked.

4th-No new government is going to be one sided--we want multi-party.

5th-We have got a lot to learn from others--even though we can be stubborn.

If you think the above applies to your group--call the supporters you have in the next admin. region
