Looking For Leadership



In G8 protests on both sides of the Atlantic, Greenpeace activists
occupied four coal-fired power plants in Italy and climbed South
Dakota's Mount Rushmore to unfurl a huge banner along Lincoln's face
that read, "America Honors Leaders, Not Politicians. Stop Global
Warming." The American climbers were arrested; last night, the
protesters in Italy were still there.
Twitter: "Goodnight from the top of Italy's worst coal power plant,
Brindisi, occupied for 20 hours so far."


FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
