Fighting Butchery and Stupidity, Still

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.


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.
