Fracking In Our Backyard : One Percent for the Planet Through our current campaign, Our Common Waters, and with exposure to increased oil and gas development near our homes and communities, we have grown concerned about hydraulic fracturing (commonly called “fracking”) and its impact on water, air, soil, wildlife habitat, and human health. Over 90% of oil and gas wells in the U.S. use fracking to aid in extraction, and many fracking fluids and chemicals are known toxins for humans and wildlife. For decades, natural gas (methane) deposits were tapped by single wells drilled vertically over large, free-flowing pockets of gas. Rules for Radicals In 1971, Saul Alinsky wrote an entertaining classic on grassroots organizing titled Rules for Radicals. Those who prefer cooperative tactics describe the book as out-of-date. Nevertheless, it provides some of the best advice on confrontational tactics. Alinsky begins this way: What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be.

Quotes About Revolution (603 quotes) “I was going to die, sooner or later, whether or not I had even spoken myself. My silences had not protected me. Your silences will not protect you.... What are the words you do not yet have? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still in silence? We have been socialized to respect fear more than our own need for language." Playbook for Progressives Introduction “Down South I’ve been beaten three times since I joined SNCC. I’ve been thrown in jail for no good reason and beaten again once I was in there.

Corbin Harney Read and listen to “The Water Song” story Biography: The Bear Goes Hungry When Corbin Harney was a boy, he would run away from the missionary school where he was forced to sit and listen to a language he did not speak or understand. The children were punished for talking to each other in their own native tongue. Having lost his parents when he was a baby, he came to live with his uncle who gave him the choice of staying in school or going off into the mountains to learn to survive on his own. Corbin took two horses and went into the hills of Idaho to live off the land his people had called home for centuries.

Making the University a Police State This weekend The Chronicle of Higher Education published an opinion piece by Michael Morris arguing that in the name of campus security campuses should start data mining all student internet traffic. Or as the not so subtle, fear mongering, almost fit for Fox News title says, “Mining Student Data Could Save Lives.” Morris’s article to put the matter bluntly is a phenomenally bad idea. Indeed his argument so ill conceived that it is difficult to know where to begin in exposing the problems.

Land Grabs It's not necessarily a problem when wealthy companies invest in agricultural land in poor countries for commercial use. But when families are kicked off the land or less food is grown as a result, that's a very big problem indeed.

MESSAGE FROM CORBIN HARNEY My people, the Western Shoshone, have been affected by nuclear weapons testing and waste dumping since 1951 when they opened the Nevada Test Site within the boundaries of my country Newe Segobia. I have seen what has happened to my people with increased leukemia and cancer rates throughout my country. I have seen how this nuclear contamination has affected the water that we drink and the air that we breathe. It has effected the plant life, the animal life and the bird life. I have seen this through out the world as I travel. No one can escape from this mess that the governments have created.
