Moral witnesses taken by border patrol!

And We are not afraid!
We will fight for liberation cause We know
why We were made!

Today, the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, the Kairos Center and Repairers of the Breach answer the call from the California Poor People's Campaign and the American Friends Service Committee to join faith leaders at the U.S.-Mexico border. Together, we demand a clear and just immigration system that prioritizes family reunification and the demilitarization of our communities on the border and the interior.

Watch the livestream of the interfaith service here**(fb)

The startling heartlessness with which our immigration system treats migrants is a rejection of human dignity. As we watch these families walking everyday closer, we see the same faces as those in our domestic refugee crisis from homeless encampments in Chico to the wildfires throughout Northern California. The haze of tear gas choking migrant children goes hand in hand with the armored cars deployed in Ferguson, Missouri.

We have a moral obligation to uphold our nation’s promise to welcome the tired, the poor, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free. We cannot succumb to hateful rhetoric and conspiracy theories. Now, more than ever, we must stand for all those with whom we share a common suffering and hope.

We’re here today at the San Diego border to demand the demilitarization of our border communities and an immigration system that recognizes the shared humanity of migrants seeking safety and refuge.

But we can’t do this without you: Share our petition now to support the movement, wherever you are, and demand Congress take action.

Somebody has been hurting our people and it’s gone on far too long. And we won’t be silent anymore.

Forward together, not one step back,

                 A Fusion Films Tribute To Rosanell Eaton**(Vimeo)

Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II's statement on the passing of Rosa Nell Eaton

Ms. Rosa Nell Eaton was the 97-year-old Matriarch in our four-year successful court fight against voter suppression, from 2013 to 2016. While alive she stayed focused on the prize of justice for all.

She once told me, "They think I'm gonna die before this case is over, but I'm not gonna die. I'm fed up and fired up!"

In her 90s Mother Eaton was arrested and taken to jail. She marched in the streets and testified in the courts, and she even told Gen Eric Holder to tell his lawyers not to play with our case but to fight back.

I think it's ironic that near the same week Mother goes home fro her eternal reward, Thom Farr, who led the case that threatened to take her voting rights, is denied entry onto the Federal Court.

She reminded us always that the only reason for the NC NAACP to exist is to



Green New Deal Protests in D.C.

Sunrise is a movement to stop climate change and create millions of good [green] jobs in the process.

It’s working. Our generation is turning the tide of history. Let me explain.

A month ago, no one was talking about the Green New Deal. Nancy Pelosi was preparing to resurrect a failed climate committee from a decade ago. We marched into her office and joined with Rep.-elect Ocasio-Cortez to demand a Select Committee for a Green New Deal. In only three weeks, 22 Congressional Democrats signed on.

Then, just this morning, 1,000 of us went back to offices of the Democratic leadership. 143 were arrested. The New York Times, NBC, CBS, the Washington Post, the AP, and dozens of other outlets covered our challenge to Democratic leaders.

And we saw our pressure working. One of the most powerful Democrats in the House, Rep. Jim McGovern, stepped out of his office to declare his commitment to forming the Select Committee for the Green New Deal. As news of our protest spread, four more Representatives - Barbara Lee, Peter Welch, and Eleanor Holmes Norton, and Steve Cohen - also committed to supporting the Select Committee.

These are huge wins. But nothing is certain until the rest of Democratic leadership - especially Nancy Pelosi - approves the Select Committee.

We’re going to mobilize every resource and every volunteer we can to get this done before Congress breaks for winter recess this Thursday. We’ve got 3 more days to win this and guarantee the Green New Deal makes it onto the 2019 Congressional agenda.

In the next three days, Democrats will finalize their 2019 agenda and leave D.C for the holidays. What they do between now and then will determine whether we get a Select Committee for a Green New Deal with mandate to draft the most ambitious climate legislation ever.

Today’s action - and the new allies we’ve won in the Democratic caucus - have brought us closer to victory than ever before. But too many people in the Democratic establishment are still too comfortable delaying action, accepting money from fossil fuel executives, and condemning our generation to catastrophe.

But we have a growing movement of young people from across the country, and that could make all the difference. We need to train new leaders, expand our phonebanking and digital tools, and ramp up our lobbying efforts as fast as possible.

It gives me so much to see our leaders and our country discuss a plan that actually matches the scale and urgency of the crisis. It’s hard to believe how quickly our campaign for a Green New Deal got into the national spotlight. And if the headlines from today tell us anything, the Green New Deal is going to be a big priority for Democrats in the upcoming Presidential primary.

We’re going to make sure this plan develops into the legislation we need. Thank you for everything you do in this movement.

Self-organized Yellow Vest Movement Threatens
Macron Regime in France
~ The Indypendent

Ignored by the president, distorted by the media, snubbed by the left, courted
by the right, the
self-organized mass  movement known as the Yellow Vests
is seriously challenging  the political
and economic order in France.

Ingredients to the current uprising underway in France:

An autocratic president without a party or a mandate.
A desperate lower-class population angry over growing economic inequality in a rich country and government indifference to their plight calling for Macron to resign.
A class of organized civil servants and unionized workers still licking their wounds and paying their bills after failing to block the president’s counter-reforms last spring.
Traditional parties — left (socialists, etc.) and right (Gaullists etc.) — that have alternated in power since the end of World War II diminished and eclipsed.
The parties of the far left (Jean-Luc Mélenchon supporters, various Trotskyists, etc.) and the far Right (the former-National Front) are too preoccupied with internal fights to play any significant role.
Powerful mass media dominated by the interests of big business but viewed with suspicion by more and more of the population.
A brand-new “leaderless” mass movement connected by social media, “finding its way by walking,” more or less consciously embedded in a long history of French rebellions and struggle, discovering its natural leaders (“good thinkers, good talkers” like old Guillaume Carle), putting forth its own ideas for the reorganization of society.
2018 Yellow Vest grievance list:

No one left homeless.
End the austerity policies.
Cancel the interest on illegitimate debt.
Don’t tax the poor to pay it back, find the 85 billion Euros of fiscal fraud uncollected.

Create a true integration policy, with French language, history and civics courses for immigrants.
Minimum salary €1500 per month
Privilege city and village centers.
Stop building huge shopping centers.

More progressive income tax rates.
Big companies like McDonald’s, Google, Amazon and Carrefour should pay big taxes and little artisans low taxes.

Ten Ways to Honor Indigenous Peoples Day
  1. Craft a Sunday service around Indigenous Peoples Day. As you plan your service, invite those within your congregation who are Native people to participate in the planning and the service itself. Work to find out the pre- and postcolonial history of the land you are worshiping on and the Native peoples who have lived there.
  2. Build and strengthen connections to nearby Native communities. Make plans to attend an event hosted by a Native group, organization, or cultural center. Find out how your congregation can be of assistance regarding the issues nearby groups are working on or struggling with.
  3. Study the Doctrine of Discovery and work to eliminate its effects. At the 2012 General Assembly, Unitarian Universalists passed a resolution repudiating the Doctrine of Discovery and calling for study of the doctrine and elimination of its presence from the current-day policies, programs, theologies, and structures of Unitarian Universalism. Study and discuss the Doctrine of Discovery  in your congregation and take action on the 2012 resolution.
  4. Take action to rename Columbus Day “Indigenous Peoples Day”. South Dakota, Alabama, and Hawaii have renamed Columbus Day. Other states (New Mexico, for one) have come close. Use the web to discover if anyone has tried to change the holiday in your city or state, and form a congregational task force to start or join the movement. Check out Denver’s Transform Columbus Day Alliance for more info and resources.
  5. Provide age-appropriate education on Native lives and cultures as part of your congregation’s religious education programming. Take active steps to counter the dominant message that Native peoples are history by offering examples of present-day American Indian life, art, etc. Check out the books Through Indian Eyes and A Broken Flute. Go further by creating a task force to find out what your children learn about Columbus in school. You can use Lies My Teacher Told Me and Rethinking Columbus to evaluate textbooks and offer suggestions.
  6. Hold a movie screening with a discussion afterward. There are a plethora of films that can generate rich discussion. Check out VisionMaker Video, a video catalog by Native American Public Telecommunications of films by and about Native folks (see, for example, the film Columbus Day Legacy).
  7. Host a congregation-wide common read and book discussion. Possible titles include An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, A Little Matter of Genocide by Ward Churchill, Off the Reservation by Paula Gunn Allen, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Brown, Reinventing the Enemy's Language edited by Joy Harjo and Gloria Bird, The Woman Who Watches Over the World by Linda Hogan, and Soul Work edited by Marjorie Bowens-Wheatley and Nancy Palmer Jones. Support Native booksellers such as the North American Native Authors Catalog. You can also find books on the particular tribes in your area—check out this listing of books by tribe from Native Languages of the Americas. For more reading suggestions, visit Bringing the Doctrine of Discovery Back Home.
  8. Engage withImmigration as a Moral Issue. Indigenous peoples of Central America are a big part of today’s desperate wave of migration to the United States. Find out how the United States has continued Columbus’s violent legacy of colonialism against Central American peoples. Check out the study guide from Multicultural Growth & Witness.
  9. Begin Building the World We Dream About, a transformational Tapestry of Faith curriculum on race and ethnicity. This program allows participants to take concrete steps to heal, individually and as a congregation, the ways in which racism separates us from one another and spiritually stifles each of us.
  10. Take action for the rights and needs of Native peoples!

Nationally, one large fire was reported. The Walker Fire in Oklahoma has burned a total of 800 acres.

Weather: More valley rain and mountain snow is expected across the northwestern quarter of the country Friday as another weakening cold front moves east along the Canadian Border. To the south, across the Southwest, warm and dry conditions Friday will give way to a cooler and breezy southwesterly flow over the weekend. In the Southeast a strong, wet system will move northeast into the Mid-Atlantic region by Sunday spreading moderate to heavy rainfall. Windy conditions are expected across the northern Great Plains Saturday followed by a warm up that will allow for unseasonably warm conditions to develop as far north as the Dakotas. Cooler and windy conditions will return by Mid-week as an Alberta Clipper moves southeast from Canada toward the Great Lakes. While this is occurring, high pressure will redevelop over the west producing warm and dry conditions in the mountains and strong inversions in the lower elevations.

"Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of
Changing the World" by
Anand Giridharadas

Billionaires Are the Lethal Monkey on the Back of the
American Public
- Audio Interview* (30 mins) ~ Bob Scheer's Truthdig

"Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World"–to my mind, this is an inside view of a new ruling class. I don’t think I’m exaggerating. It’s a world that–you have all the watering holes, the TED conferences, the Aspen, everywhere else; you’ve been there, you’ve been there as a journalist for The New York Times for about 12, 15 years. You studied at some elite institutions, you worked at the Aspen Institute. And what we meet in this book are people who are into a great exercise of delusion, that they can make out like bandits and still be Robin Hood. Is that not the deal?
