THE SUPREME COURT HAS ISSUED IT’S 5-4 RULING THAT INDIVIDUALS CAN POUR AS MUCH MONEY INTO ELECTIONS AS THEY CHOOSE (AND HAVE). This does for individuals what Citizens United did for corporations. If we are going to get money out of elections we must act NOW.
Today at 5-7 many people will gather at the Bellingham Federal Building, Magnolia and Cornwall. We must have a huge turnout to show that we have had enough, more than enough!

A short video shows what Citizen’s United v. FEC was/is about.
This video can be found on the WAMEND web site.
Or you can find the link to WAMEND on the left side of the main page. It is one of many great videos to better understand this cause so you can be more affective as a signature gatherer.
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR WORK.

Here we go again. Imperialism on the march!
This time we’ve got our eyes on the European Continent, Ukraine and the Crimea.
Can we stop this when our military is part of the corporate industrial complex. Maybe even the biggest?
This video is old – but so relevant and tells a story of U.S.A. Imperialistic ways so well.

We missed out on creating any action for “The Day We Fight Back” that occurred around the nation on February 11, 2014. The fight is not over and here is some motivation to think about how we can create some action.
For now we can write, phone and email our legislators about whatever legislation is in the mill. Many in Occupy Bellingham have been providing us with articles and web sites related to this issue. Stay tuned and involved.
Popular Resistance is a great web site for staying in tune with current issues. It’s linked on our front page (to the left)
