Righteousness Someday Prevail

Righteousness Someday Prevail

Tuesday marks the late great Bob Marley's birthday; he would have been (only) 73, a mournful reminder of just how young he was when he died - 36 - and just how long he's been gone. A ghetto-dweller born wailing, with a savvy, wary view of "politricks" and "the shitstem," what sweet solace he might have tendered - "Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery/ None but ourselves can free our minds" - in these dark days.  Still, his music and legacy live on. If you haven't, see the great documentary about him, and "Come we go chant down Babylon one more time."

 

THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES

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.
