Homeless in America:
Two Poems by Walidah
Living in America,
sometimes makes me think
I live in a luxurious concentration camp.
I can have anything I want as long as I
obey certain rules.

Republicans brag about supporting wars for profit and Democrats lie about supporting wars for profit. So we spend trillions, killing millions for billionaires. This will bankrupt America by 2030.
S Brian Willson Portal
at The Alliance:
"I stand in front of the MY LAI MASSACRE MEMORIAL in Viet Nam, April 5, 2016. In case you didn't know, that U.S. soldiers would commit acts of casual terror against helpless civilians was a disturbing discovery for many Americans. That they would be responsible for the annihilation of whole villages was incomprehensible."
The life and death struggle continues. Black lives matter, but Thursday night Malcolm Chaddock risked his life to prevent a blood-bath. A right-wing Trump supporter came to the Black Lives Matter march with a semi-automatic pistol and six clips of ammunition, enough to kill a hundred people in the time it takes to draw a few breaths.

Vigil for Keaton Otis
September 12, 2017
6:00pm - 7:00pm
at 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Keaton Otis was a young Black man murdered by the Portland police more than seven years ago, May 12, 2010.
Location NE 6th and Halsey Portland, Oregon
Keaton Otis was a young Black man murdered by the Portland police six years ago. The police admitted they stopped him for “looking like a gangster.” His father, Fred Bryant, held a monthly vigil every month on the 12th since his son’s murder. The vigil took place in a struggle for justice for three years, on the spot where Keaton’s life was needlessly taken. And we continue the struggle. There has been no justice.
Please join us with that struggle this month and help to spread the word: blacklivesmatter
