  • Austerity or Grexit: A False Dichotomy

    Greece has shown the world that there is an alternative to austerity: wresting power from the hands of elites, corporations and banks through the reassertion of democratic control.

  • Rehumanizing Gaza

    Reducing Palestinians to heroes capable of resisting Israel's military and failing to see their home as a community seeking connections with the outside world, we contribute to Gaza's dehumanization.

You Are Not One but Many

Monday, 20 January 2014 14:36 By David Krieger, SpeakOut | Poem
Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr.
 
Your deep voice still hangs in the air,
Melting the cowardly silence.
You are the one standing solidly there
Looking straight in the face of violence.
 
You are the one who dreams
That this nation will honor its creed.
You are the one who steps forward.
You are the one to bleed.
 
You are not one but many
Unwilling to cower or crawl.
You are the one who will take no less
Than a world that is just for all.
