Wouldn’t it be grand if they could enjoy the coffee in the peace and comfort of home?
I just learned about an important issue and signed a petition about it. The federal government is on the verge of turning over a huge portion of our public airwaves to companies like AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast, who will use them for private enrichment instead of the public good.
These newly available airwaves are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to revolutionize Internet access, beaming high-speed signals to every park bench, coffee shop, workplace, and home in America. Phone and cable companies don’t want this competition to their Internet services; they’d rather purchase the airwaves at auction and sit on them.
You can sign the petition I signed here—urging the government to make sure the public airwaves are used for the public good:

The largest gathering of progressives and radicals in years is about to happen, and you’re invited. Like the World Social Forums, thousands will gather under the banner, “Another World is Possible.” But this time, it will happen here in the United States.
Come be a part of history
Who will be there? Grassroots organizers, union members, people of faith, community members, educators, youth, peace activists, immigrants, workers, environmental justice activists, indigenous people, displaced Gulf Coast residents, cultural workers, etc…
What will it be like? Hundreds of workshops, strategy sessions, plenaries, direct action, soccer tournament, film festival, concerts, exhibitions, mass mobilization…
Why come? To make history, to connect with others, to share your story, to heal, to learn leadership skills, to get inspired, to build new strategies, to link up with a global social movement that is changing the world, to march, sing, speak your truth, to take a stand at the birthplace of the Black Freedom Movement, to intersect our issues and struggles, to advance the struggle for justice…
Come be a part of history
um…there’s probably more…
