Fighting Butchery and Stupidity, Still

Abby Zimet



We salute Veterans for Peace, who just celebrated their
25th anniversary here. Founded in Maine by a handful of Vietnam vets
"bound by our experience and a real disdain for war," they now boast
5,000 men and women in 100 chapters
across the
country, and are still fighting against senseless wars, new ones now. We
love that one night they showed "The Good Fight," a terrific film about
the Abraham Lincoln Brigade and its tireless righteous warriors still going
strong, decades on. Hope lives.

"Persevering. It's not easy." - teacher, writer, VFP founder Doug Rawlings.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
