Abby Zimet

Maine's upcoming referendum on its recently-passed marriage equality
law has brought sleazy right-wingers out of the woodwork -
specifically, the same folks who engineered California's Prop.8
campaign. Now they're airing false ads
featuring a supposed public school teacher, Charla Bansley, who in fact
is a Christian activist who opposes stem cell research, diversity
training, anti-bullying programs and, needless to say, marriage
equality, whose supporters she has called "forces of evil."
Out-of-staters wanting to take a Volunteer Vacation to help the No on
One campaign, go here. The leaves are turning!

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
