Beyond Righteous Anger (1/14)

Dear Friends,

We would enjoy your participation in the workshop we are leading on Nonviolent Communication and Social Change: Beyond Righteous Anger Saturday, Jan 14th 10 am – 1 pm (Friends Meeting House 225 Rooney St. Hwy 1 at Morrissey) (In Honor of Martin Luther King’s Birthday: sponsored by NVCSantaCruz)
Our plan for this workshop is to explore how the communication tools of Nonviolent Communication can apply to political dialogue. We are particularly interested in experimenting with:

· The ways understanding can bridge divisions across ideological lines

· How to let go of moral indignation in order to find common ground

· Language that clarifies needs rather than polarizes

If you would like more information about the Nonviolent Communication model, see www.cnvc.org and www.nvcsantacruz.org

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or comments.

Best Regards,
Aviva and Rick Longinotti longinotti (at) baymoon.com

They Are Committing Mass Murder For Capitalist Profit

Hold onto your moral indignation and righteous anger!

The people's politics are polarized between the solutions that can only come from the people, and the problems that come from those with all of the power and all of the wealth.

In our struggles for justice the polarization is already there. To deny it is to deny reality. To gloss over it in politics for an illusion of an attempt harmony creates confusion amongst the people, especially when it comes to dealing with the pro-war, racist, sexist, homophobic, and anti-worker Democrat Party.

Of course that party demands you not to ask and not to tell their real policies.

Without exposing the extremes between the lies the politicians tell us and the reality of what they are really doing there will never be any solutions. From unions to the human rights struggles and anti-war movements, significant political gains for the people have only come through massive social struggle against this system.
