Spirit of Resistance

Spirit of Resistance

Abby Zimet

Much bad news; much protest planned to combat it. A round-up: In Colorado, progressive groups will protest another secret gathering of the Koch Bros. and their well-funded cohorts to show the right, "We mean business too." In Pennsylvania, a teacher and his supporters are running 100 miles to protest education cuts totalling over $1 billion, representing a 50% in state funding and the biggest single-year cuts ever. In Toronto, protesters will mark the anniversary of the G20 summit that saw mass arrests and police misconduct. And if you want to protest anything Obama's done lately, sign up for Dinner With Barack. Like the best things in life, it's free.


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.
