In the face of recent roaring onslaught of reactionary social, political, and economic changes and the exasperatingly tepid response of oppostion leadership (when they're not actively colluding, that is), it's hard not to throw up our hands in resignation. Now's not the time to give up, though. Get informed, sign petitions, speak up, give money when you can, and VOTEVOTEVOTE! Here are a couple of opportunities:
1. The case of Bradley Manning is horrifying and I urge you to read every word of this very long and informative post. At the end are some links to petitions that you can sign and organizations that you can donate money to.
2. If you subscribe to the New York Times, read this and then sign this and if they don't print a convincing apology, consider cancelling your subscription.
Opportunities for activism abound and I suspect they are going to soon become a lot more prevalent. Jump in!
