Good Night, Pete Seeger

Pete SeegerDoesn’t everyone have at least a song with special significance… a telltale from some event or happening in the past?  The song “Goodnight, Irene” has that significance for me; more specifically the version sang by The Weavers in the 50’s, my unannounced introduction to Pete Seeger, the folk singer, as a Weaver.  It would be a decade later, however, that I would learn about this later-to-be iconic singer-songwriter and, more importantly for me, his sociopolitical activist persona.

US PovertyWidth and Breadth of Today’s Poverty

Year of Solidarity with Palestinians

BDSBoycott Apartheid Israel

Last year the UN General Assembly (UNGA) overwhelmingly voted to proclaim “2014 the International Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People”. The people around the world must urge and apply Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) not just against Apartheid Israel but also against all those people, politicians, parties, companies, corporations and countries that support this grossly human rights-abusers, genocidal racist, Apartheid state.
