This analysis is a result of a collective discussion by TNI staff on the many dimensions of the COVID-19 pandemic drawing on the wisdom of many allies and friends. We hope it helps join some of the dots of this complex and still unfolding health emergency and supports the movements fighting to protect the most marginalised and to build a more just world.

Where We Live: #OccupyWallSt

A nearly hour-long radio discussion among various points of view ensues here. At the conclusion of the program  is information about the #OccupyHartford General Assembly scheduled to take place tomorrow, Wednesday morning at 8:30, October 5, 2011, in Hartford, CT at Bushnell Park (across from the Union Street Train Station). Chris Doucot of the Catholic Worker community in Hartford, proves to be an articulate, thoughtful, intelligent spokesperson for the #OccupyTogether movement. When asked what the message of the occupation is, Chris Doucot replied: “We want economic justice.” When pressed to articulate a message specific to Hartford, he replied further: “Hartford is the insurance capital of the world. How about we have healthcare for all — stop privitizing medical debt, making medical debt consumer debt. That’s something we can do.” ~ yours truly, df

Noam Chomsky Announces Solidarity for Occupy Wall Street / NYC Protest for American Revolution

Occupy Wall Street | NYC Protest for American Revolution.

Remember satyagraha, truthforce ~ not violence nor passivism, but the third alternative we all know and practice each day — being alive each moment, as we are, where we are, connected, as one, in the integrity of the wild.

For the first time, in decades, many Americans could not look away from the images of human and other life forms suffering in the Gulf of Mexico last year because of irresponsible, profit-driven, corporate decisions and refusal to own up. Since 2008 many have witnessed the collusion between government and the financial sector as they proceeded to wipe out the life savings of American workers while helping themselves to greater returns on their investments. Since the Great Japanese Earthquake of 2011 just this past March, we also see a similar refusal for nation state and corporate powers globally, to reverse course, to freeze nuclear energy uses altogether, for the sake of all life. Here in the U. S. more and people can not find  work and continue to lose their homes.

The web of life is breaking apart. This is not fear-mongering but fact telling. Our urgent and palpable need for changing how we live, for strengthening those tender threats that unite us, is coming alive. For this we need to hold hands together across the chasms in solidarity with one another as we work for life for all. For this we will always need the bread and prism that is poetry. ~ yours truly, df
