We want a "peace economy" that creates jobs, invests in our communities, restores and improves public services, saves the environment, and builds the infrastucture.

This is an interesting article about a growing willingness among progressive actvists to "speak truth to power" and to confront the 1% in their meetings and their places of business. The story about George Lakey and his colleagues breaking up a PNC bank shareholders meeting is a high point. That sort of action takes awareness, planning, and courage, but it can have a real impact on the corporation and the real people who are on the board.
