The policies of my government, the actions taken, and many of its foreign relations (if you can call them that) make me sick.
If you live in the United States and feel any disgust about the Bush administration, this Saturday, take a sign and join a few thousand others who feel the "war on Iraq" and occupation of it needs to end. I personally think the famous quote about how the greatest evil there is occurs when good people do nothing is quite true.
This blog is not really about my political viewpoints at all, but I was involved and would like to be again, when I get out of confinement, in activism against the war on Iraq and other issues, so I just wanted to let the readers know that United for Peace and Justice - a coalition of some wonderful organizations - will be holding, this week in Washington D.C., a large protest. Meanwhile other local groups in areas around the U.S. are, as usual, joining in by showing their affinity through local actions taken at the same time.
If I wasn't in the situation I'm in, I'd be involved in this a bit so I'd just wanted to let you know that there are ways to be involved. I also feel that this hurricane Katrina disaster relief has been a bit of a disaster itself because of the fact that 70% of the people in New Orleans have black skin, and there are some racists running this country who don't much care to really help them.
