ordered and payed for the assasination of Ghandi. The British Government and it's commercial partners in India could tolerate a independent India but not with Ghandi in it.
Ghandi would have worked to prevent continued British exploitation of India's labor and resources and would have succeeded considering his immense power at the time as the father of an independent India.
What is going to happen when the movement grows to twice the size it is today? Do you believe that the right wing military government in the US will allow it to go on. They will send their thugs into our ranks and destablize and in many cases murder or set up our leadership as they have always done in the past.
It is time for everyone to show up regardless of the out come or how violent things get. It is time to come to grips with the fact that the ruling class will not give up power to true democracy with out a fight.
If we truly believe in equity for all life on this planet it is time to put aside concern for our personal well being in context to this struggle.
Some of us are going to be hurt, jailed and killed.
It is also important to note that there has been absolutely no reporting of European polling data or of the large street protests throughout Europe over US actions in Afghanistan in the corporate media here in the US. If these facts were reported it would contrast to greatly against the cowed support of European leaders. So if you think having a peaceful show of indignation in the streets matters to these fanatics in the multi national corporations, your wrong.
The only thing that matters to them is numbers. The more people that join us in the streets regardless of the content of the protest is the only thing that will move the ruling class. And of course they will always move to violence first.
