"In DC, 5000 people rallied to Stop The Frack Attack, while in West Virginia protesters occupied a strip mine to demand an end to mountaintop removal mining. Meanwhile, in Texas and Montana, youth organizers are getting ready to once again take Keystone XL and Big Coal head on."
There is a deep need for the peace, environmental and political reform movements to come together. Single issue organizing is all well and good, but we are greater as a unified pro-democracy public. While strip mines and pipelines plunder along, the US government is fighting so many wars over resources that it is difficult to count. As long as the energy conservation budget is a fraction of the war budget, we are dead, be it one way or another.
