I'm sharing a link to this video about global poverty, which also includes the "Dream Act" and dreamers taking action. Thought, creative, humorous, provocative, it asks "Will Hope end poverty?" It's an animation of wonderful drawings. One of my photos of the Mayday civil disobedience action by the dreamers was used in this video---towards the end, you can see it in a nanosecond. I believe Dulce and Leon were 2 of the 4 in my photo who were arrested that day.

· Taken at St John's Bridge....Cathedral Park
What an awe-inspiring, daring and utterly breath-taking direct action by Greenpeace activists at the St. John's bridge in Portland, OR. 13 courageous and determined GP activists rappelled from the bridge, and were suspended for over 40 hours in their attempt to stop or delay the Fennica, an ice-breaker owned by Shell Corp., bound for the Artic to be used for oil-drilling. They were supported by the "kayaktivists" who bravely tried to block the Fennica from sailing past the bridge, but were overwhelmed by the coast guard in their motorboats. We will always remember the beautiful image of this remarkable direct action of these activists hanging from the bridge, with their colored flags flying in the wind.

As long as we continue without police accountability in Portland,http://www.ThePortlandAlliance.org/policeaccountability
avoidable killings of innocent people will continue.
For all we can know
in each of us,
in the reach of our own hands.
