Grandmothers Against The War, Veterans for Peace, and participants hold a vigil at Rockefeller Square on March 24, 2008. They gathered for peace, the 4000 military deaths and over 1 million war casualties.
Montage of baking gorp cookies, wearing fake facial hair, Pres. Bush dancing in Africa, Billy Idol going techno, & white cat in "Fists in Pocket". If you had time for this, it's much better to go to the current Move On campaigns page.
"We've heard it from the generals, they've heard from the politicians,...but they haven't heard from the veterans."
Winter Soldier was a panel from March 13-16, 2008 in Silver Springs, Maryland. Most of the mainstream corporate media have ignored the panel of Iraq War veterans testifying their accounts.
Most of the mainstream media is responsible to their shareholders to make money from their sponsors. Who would you, as a consumer, believe in? The generals, politicians, and veterans on the ground or what mainstream media is saying? It is much wiser to improve your knowledge by broadening your sources of information.
Since mainstream media has not covered these Winter Soldier testimonials, they are actively limiting their service on our public airwaves. We the people entrust our government to license to these broadcast companies for something that belongs to the people. Corporations like mainstream media have neglected the public good by not giving balanced coverage.
Please take a moment and watch these testimonials from Iraq Veterans.
I closed this blog & my iTunes music blog to the public for about a month.
New developments: I was sponsoring 2 kids through Save the Children USA for about 2 years. The charity has gone through its program and it has now deemed its mission complete at the particular village my sponsored children belong. Having completed its program on dealing with sustainable issues: health, hygiene, and early childhood education they are moving on. At this point I was given the choice to continue funding the charity for 2 more kids or stop. I think the tough part is going to be writing the last letters to the kids and saying goodbye. I think though it won't be tough to remind them to take care of their health, do their homework, help around the house & listen to their parents & teachers. If you would like to check out Save the Children USA, they are on the web and also at CharityNavigator.org
I'm working on part time work /school personal web presence at franciscodaum.com. I narrowed the visual arts to 3 catagories: Photography, Illustration, & Video. I'll probably make an audio photo show for each of the catagories. The blawg part may somehow be linked but for now the focus will for academic and part time work purposes. The links are not all live yet.
I have not filed formal City of New York, NY State and Federal complaints. The deadline for NY State is coming up in May. NY State has a 1 year limit on EEO incidents. FYI: For sexual harassments, the NY State limit is 6 months.
