Subject: Getting to a clean-energy future

Friend,

This is a moment we can't afford to miss.

The House has passed landmark energy legislation. And now, the Senate is ready to take up the issue.

That's why it's so important that you stood with President Obama today. Let's show that Americans are ready to pave the way to a clean-energy future for our children and grandchildren.

Ask five friends today to join you in standing with the President. Just pass along the email below.

Thanks,

Mitch

=============

Hi,

The oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico is a tragedy -- one we can only hope never happens again.

But the solution is about more than just addressing this crisis. As President Obama said, "An America run solely on fossil fuels should not be the vision we have for our children and our grandchildren."

The House has already passed comprehensive energy legislation -- and the Senate is ready to take up the issue.

That's why I added my name today to show I stand with President Obama for a clean-energy future.

Will you join me?

Thank you.

Free the Prisoners! Trial against Michael Walli on Monday, June 14

I know Micheal and Louis to be two of the finest Souls in Earth. 
If you won't support them, WHO WILL YOU SUPPORT????  SL

SOA Watch News & Updates
Four SOA Watch Activists Incarcerated:
You can jail the resister, but you can't jail the resistance!

While our friends Nancy, Ken, Louis and Michael - the 'SOAW 4' - are spending their days in prison for speaking out against the SOA, those responsible for the training of human rights abusers and for the use of torture manuals at the SOA have never even been investigated.

Letters of support written to Nancy, Ken, Louis and Michael would be much appreciated and can be sent to the following addresses:

The 'SOAW 4' were arrested by the military during the 2009 November Vigil, when they crossed onto Fort Benning to carry our message that the School of the Americas must be closed onto the base.

Ken, Louis and Nancy were sentenced to six months in prison - the maximum allowed for the charge of tresspass. The extremely harsh sentences are intended to deter others from following the example of the 'SOAW 4.' Michael, who resisted the judges orders to voluntarily return to Columbus for the court date in January, was arrested by federal marshals and is awaiting his June 14, 2010 trial (9am, at the federal courthouse in Columbus, Georgia) while in jail in Georgia.

They are in there for us, we are out here for them! Write to the Prisoners of Conscience!

Consider engaging in nonviolent direct action:
Keep the pressure on! People who put their bodies on the line to speak in solidarity with the people of Latin America are crucial in the struggle to close the SOA/ WHINSEC.

Stand up for justice at the gates of Fort Benning, Georgia in November:

Monday, June 14:
Federal trial against SOA Watch activist Michael Walli in Columbus, Georgia

Catholic Worker Michael Walli of the "SOAW 4," crossed onto Fort Benning in November 2009 to speak out against the School of the Americas. He was arrested together with Nancy, Ken and Louis. During his November arraignment, Michael told the judge that he would not pay any bail and that he would not voluntarily return for the trial. Michael Walli made good on his promise and Faircloth issued a warrant for Michael's arrest. Federal marshals arrested Michael in March 2010 at the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker House in Washington, DC.

Michael is currently being held at the Irwin county jail and will stand trial before judge Mallon Faircloth in the federal courthouse at 120 12th Street in Columbus, Georgia on Monday morning (June 14, 9:00am).

Support Michael Walli and all political prisoners.




Rest in Peace


The former SOA Watch Prisoners of Conscience Art Landis and Sister Sheila recently passed away. Sister Sheila was part of the 'SOAW 16' in 2006 and Art served a 30-day sentence in 2008 as a result of his nonviolent witness against the SOA/WHINSEC during the November Vigil in Fort Benning, GA. Sister Sheila and Art will be missed.

DN! Protester Confronts Sen Murkowski on Big Oil Protection

Diane Wilson, Shrimperwoman - Arrested at Senate Hearing





Shrimper Shows Outrage to Oil Shill Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Diane  Wilson).wmv

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20007240-503544.html Diane Wilson http://www.youtube.com/user/DianeWilsonsFan , a Texas shrimper and activist, has been arrested for pouring oil on herself during a senate energy hearing. Wilson was voicing her anger over the issue of BP's liability in the catastrophic spill that has devastated the shrimping industry along the Gulf coast. She was specifically protesting Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski's blocking of a bill that would have lifted the oil giant's liability cap. Wilson was promptly removed from the hearing and arrested and charged with unlawful conduct disruption of Congress, according to Sgt. Kimberly Schneider of the Capitol Hill Police. Wilson is a co-founder of Codepink for Peace, a women's movement dedicated to "redirecting resources into healthcare, education, green jobs and other life-affirming activities," according to their website. "I am seeing the destruction of my community and I am outraged," Wilson said in a statement released by Codepink following her arrest. "I am also seeing elected representatives like Senator Lisa Murkowski blocking BP from being legally responsible to pay for this catastrophe.... This is outrageous. How dare she side with big oil over the American people who have been so devastated by this manmade disaster?" Wilson, who claims to be a fourth-generation shrimper, has been protesting and writing about pollution in the Gulf for years. "We want people to call Senator Murkowski's office and tell her to stop supporting big oil and support a healthy environment and American livelihoods instead," said Codepink co-founder Medea Benjamin, who was with Wilson at the hearing. "BP CEO Tony Hayward should be in jail, not a distraught shrimper!"

Now that I've switched focus to Justice for Palestine I've been just this minute threatened by one ot the 3 Secret Service thugs that has it in for us here, with Vigil Termination - "One of the reasons you are allowed here is that you are peaceful." He obviously didn't like me yelling at a pro Israeli activist, who was yelling back at me. NO VIOLATION OF THE LAW was in any way mentioned.

Fw: [GazaFriends] Jewish boat to Gaza is sailing soon

The Jewish boat to Gaza is sailing soon

In an undisclosed harbor in the Mediterranean, a small vessel is waiting
for a special mission. She will be sailing to Gaza. In order to avoid
sabotage, the exact date and name of the port of departure will be
announced only shortly before her launch.

"Our purpose is to call an end to the siege of Gaza, to this illegal
collective punishment of the whole civilian population. Our boat is small,
so our donations can only be symbolic: we are taking school bags, filled
with donations from German school children, musical instruments and art
materials. For the medical services we are taking essential medicines and
small medical equipment, and for the fishermen we are taking nets and
tackle. We are liaising with the medical, educational and mental health
services in Gaza..

''In attacking the Freedom Flotilla, Israel has once again demonstrated to
the world a heinous brutality. But I know that there are very many
Israelis who compassionately and bravely campaign for a just peace. As
broadcasting journalists from mainstream television programs are
accompanying our boat, Israel will have a great chance to show the world
that there is another way, a way of courage not fear, a way of hope not
hate'', says Edith Lutz, one of the organizers and passenger on the
''Jewish boat''.

The ''Jüdische Stimme'' (Jewish Voice for a Just Peace in the Near East),
along with her friends of EJJP (European Jews for a Just Peace in the Near
East) and Jews for Justice For Palestinians (UK) are sending a call to the
leaders of the world to help Israel find her way back to reason, a sense
of humanity and a life without fear. ''Jewish Voices'' expects the
political leaders of Israel and the world to guarantee a safe passage for
the small vessel to Gaza, thus helping to form a bridge towards peace.
