In a 1950s civics textbook of mine, I can remember a Martian landing on Main Street, U.S.A., to be instructed in the glories of our political system.  You know, our tripartite government, checks and balances, miraculous set of rights, and vibrant democracy.  There was, Americans then thought, much to be proud of, and so for that generation of children, many Martians were instructed in the American way of life.  These days, I suspect, not so many.

BY Joan Russow Global Compliance Research Project.

The Nobel Peace Prize 2007 was awarded jointly to Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Albert Arnold (Al) Gore Jr. ""for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change. Can each of the thousands of IPCC members refer to himself or herself as  a "Nobel Laureate" or as a member of the IPCC that was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Eulogy for PEJ News Editor Gerry Deiter

PEJ News - Hi. My name is Doug Koch and I?m one of the boys of Table 18 [at Swans Pub in Victoria, Canada]. I?ve been asked to help contribute to Gerry?s eulogy.

Gerry once said, if he had the money, he?d have a boat here, one in the Caribbean, and another in the Mediterranean, with a jet to get around to each sea cruise. He may not have travelled to the four corners of the globe but he was indeed a man of the world ? idealistic, an activist for peace and a healthy environment, one enthusiastic socializer.

BC War Resisters Fundraising Target

Sarah Bjorknas - I just want to let you know that we now have a concrete fundraising target since we are getting underway with Kyle's refugee claim. We need to pay his lawyer, Bob Geimer and provide Kyle with pocket money (he'll be staying here at the Vancouver Catholic Worker for the time being). Specifically, Jeff House will be sending Bob a large amount of information to assist him in the case and the cost for it will be around $600.

Senator Bob Brown is known worldwide for giving a voice to millions when he booed George Bush in the Australian Parliament, prior to the invasion of Iraq. Senator Brown is visiting BC in early April, to support Green Party candidates at these public events...
