Still Waiting

Lt. Dan Choi and Capt. Jim Pietrangelo
are scheduled to appear in a Washington court today after handcuffing themselves to the White House gates to protest
the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. The action followed a
Human Rights Campaign rally to repeal DADT where Choi sent a message to
President Obama: "Enough talk."

"I am still standing, I am still fighting, I am still speaking out, and I am still gay." - Choi

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

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
