With many organizations now putting out lengthy lists of “good news stories” I have the impression of a rapidly mobilizing, empowered citizenry.

It’s like spring has arrived; there is new life shooting up everywhere around us!   I selected just a few examples.

Can’t celebrate if we don’t know about them!


1.     2014-04-17   Monsanto and Big Food Losing the GMO and ‘Natural’ Food Fight

2.     Pulitzer Vindicates:  Snowden Journalists Win Top Honor

Guardian and Washington Post each honored with Pulitzer for Public Service

Note:   I added a “sub-category” for Snowden and Greenwald under the category (right-hand sidebar) Solidarity with the Warriors.   A click on the sub-category will generate a list of the various postings related to Snowden and Greenwald.

Including this:  2014-03-24     He likes Snowden, but he doesn’t like Assange?  Input and response.

  1. it doesn’t matter what the citizens of Kitimat voted for; the pipeline will go through. This is what you got when you voted in a Conservative majority and coupled them a Conservative (calling themselves Liberals in BC.

    Its already game over folks; these are nothing more than PR exercises.
