Chronicling community action, revolutionary and revealing thought

G W Bush is in Canada now.

and 10,000 people converged at the doors of Parliament Hill- 5,000 more than who just completed the snake march- and voiced their objection to His (insert insult here)s' presence where he should be indisted as a war criminal.

And then there's the two demonstrations today a the US Consulate, at 2 and 6 pm.


Anybody go to Ottawa? Who was at the demos today?

(know anyone who did...?)

Hello from South America


how are you all doing? What`s up in the neighbourhood?
I hope everyone is doing well.

Down here in elections yesterday in Venezuela and Uruguay there was a resounding victory for social politics in this continent.

Progressive politics swept through Venezuela where pro-Chavez governors won 20 of 22 seats, giving the Bolivarian Revolution full sway in the National Assembly. In Uruguay the progressive coalition party "Frente Amplio" won the national election after 30 years of losses.

Uruguay joins Brazil, Argentina, and Venezuela in a new economic and political path for South America even as North America struggles between keeping George W. Bush or the neo-con democrat, John Kerry.

"Another world is possible" the favourite slogan of South American progressives, is actually proving true for many countries on the continent that are struggling towards fundamental structural changes to change the course of their future.

Things are happening here slowly but surely, one step at a time, door-to-door, neighbourhood to neighbourhood.

And how are things in Canada? How are things in Toronto?

Take Care,
