The Power of Nonviolence

Dr. Martin Luther King had a dream that was supported by a movement of nonviolence. I would humbly like to propose that if women promote a movement of nonviolence, you will set in motion a movement that will capture the world’s attention.

To End Sexual Violence, End War

by James Carroll - Boston Globe, January 11, 2011

SOME YEARS ago I was reunited with a boyhood friend who told me he had served in Vietnam — not one tour, but three. When he described some of the horrendous combat experiences he had, I asked why he repeatedly volunteered to go back? He replied cautiously, “Do you want the real answer?’’ Sure, I said, even as his tone put me on alert. “I went back for the sex,’’ he said. “All the sex I could want. Best sex I ever had.’’

Rally: Support Working Women Under Attack!

When: Wednesday, December 1, 2010, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
Where: Harvard Square • 1350 Massachusetts Ave • Holyoke Center • Cambridge

Harvard laid off hundreds of workers in June '09. Since that time union representatives have heard more & more reports of massively-increased workloads, unfair statistical pressure, rapidly escalating, arbitrary discipline, and wrongful, at times discriminatory firings. Even in a mainly female clerical workforce, the number of women over 40 facing unfair treatment or the loss of their jobs seems glaringly disproportionate. Three of our union sisters need your help December 1:

Backwards March

Boston Herald -March 20, 2011
By Margery Eagan

The St. Patrick’s Day parade has become a wincing embarrassment to this city.

Its organizer, South Boston’s Allied War Veterans Council, has again denied participation to gay groups and veterans who oppose our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Both rejected groups will nonetheless march anyway, in exile, about a mile behind the parade and behind city street sweepers as well.
