Racism A Vital Tool

Racism A Vital Tool

Abby Zimet

A great speech by Iraq veteran Mike Prysner, who helped found March Forward!
to fight the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and urge members of
the military to refuse deployment there. A brave and eloquent soul.

"Our real enemy is not the ones living in a distant land whose
names or policies we don't understand. The real enemy is a system that
wages war when it's profitable, the CEOs who lay us off our jobs when
it's profitable, the insurance companies who deny us health care when
it's profitable, the banks who take away our homes when it's
profitable. Our enemies are not several hundred thousand miles away. They
are right here in front of us."



Independent media 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 our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
