We spoke about focused recruitment/hiring drives aimed at the veterans….FROM THE NAVY, FOR EXAMPLE. How we turn militarized skill sets into viable post deployment activism, and the need for vets to heal themselves through environmental/social stewardship after having witnessed firsthand the destruction of land, and the cost of human suffering long after “the battle is over”.
I would like to remind the reader that 30 Greenpeace activists are currently being held in PRISON, in RUSSIA, on charges of …get this: “hooliganism”. You read that right, the same charges that got our sisters PUSSY RIOT sent to Siberia. Making ol’ Uncle Joe proud…
The tour for the public is highly recommended, it is informative and inspiring. We at OVSF and our affiliates are committed to forging stronger, closer ties with all groups and individuals fighting for Global Justice….from the streets of Oakland to the rainforests of Indonesia, you can count on Independent Citizen Media and hard core Change Agents to bring you entertaining and informative material.
What GP has been able to show the world is that after 40 years of dedicated effort to protect our planet and her inhabitants, the VOICE and the WILL of the people cannot be undermined by the Establishment, and that we will continue our efforts until the whole world is educated, liberated, and set free from the chains of oppression that “bind” us to a system that is CLEARLY out of order.
