World Week for the Abolition of Meat: 23-30 Sept 2011 (tags)
The idea is to claim loud and clear that it is not only the duty of each individual to stop supporting the murderous exploitation required by the consumption of animal flesh and "by-products", but that it is also, therefore, the duty of societies as a whole to declare themselves for the banning of farming, fishing and hunting.
World Week for the Abolition of Meat - May 2011 Campaign (tags)
Our societies have to pronounce on the unjustifiable character of meat consumption from an ethical viewpoint: it involves sacrificing the basic interests of innumerable sentient beings whereas eating meat is unnecessary. Let's abolish meat!

Digos Massacre Remembered (tags)
25 June 2009 It is quite common these days to read from the newspapers violence being perpetrated by the communist New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) that most Filipinos no longer care as long they are not the poor victims. People have become so passive that when rebels committed atrocities to civilians, none would make a fuss about it or chastise the perpetrators -- except for the families of the victims and the authorities. None would take the initiative to launch a crusade to seek justice. This is also what happened 20 years ago today.

The Anti-War Movement, the Troops, & Some Lessons from Vietnam (tags)
Life inside the U.S. military reflects the conflicting class interests in this country, often in its deadliest forms. While technically a “volunteer” military, the great bulk of its recruits come from working class families and are largely joining because of a lack of job and educational opportunities. For them, signing up is a chance to acquire the skills they need to get a decent job once they become civilians, though, in reality, military service has little to offer in this regard. On the other hand, the majority of the military’s professional officers and policy makers come from more privileged layers of the population. For them, the military is a career where they can take their “rightful place” lording over the grunts and climb the ladder as they would if they were working for a corporation or financial institution. Because of this divide in opportunity and expectations, which is rooted in class inequality, the great majority of soldiers are subject to the arrogance, lies, and disregard for their personal well-being at the hands of their superiors, as are workers are to the capitalists in civilian life.
Supporting the Troops for "Preposterous" reasons? (tags)
To suggest that its alright for the US Military Troops to continue wreaking havoc and carnage on the Iraqi people because these totally "uninformed" troops think it's their moral and patriotic duty to do so is hypocrisy and a delusional form of insanity!

STOP THE ATTACK ON STUDENTS SKIPPING SCHOOL (tags)
The attack on students skipping school to engage in political activism, needs to Stop. Democratic principals have never occurred with youth behind desks. From the Popular movement to the Civil Rights movement, youth have always maintained an active role in standing against injustices. And our duty as responsible adults in their lives, is to stand beside them, or at least get out of the way, before casting another stone.
