Some activists are beginning to complain that all these protests are stupid and inconsequential. These activists have the wrong perspective of what is happening on the planet. There is not a series of protests going on...there is an on-going resistance to a planned takeover of all people, all cultures, all natural resources, destruction of the natural world, and an implantation of fear.

Kitzhaber criticizes forest-thinning plan
SALEM - Gov. John Kitzhaber said President Bush's proposal to sidestep environmental laws to speed up thinning in national forests violates the spirit of a bipartisan plan to reduce wildfires put together by western governors.
``The 10-year plan makes it clear that the forest health treatments are to be done in a way that meets federal environmental laws,'' the Democratic governor said in a letter sent Wednesday to the Oregon congressional delegation.
Kitzhaber noted that the Bush administration has consistently cut funding for National Fire Plan projects.
"The long-term interest of American governments, from the end of the Revolutionary War down to the present day, has been the expansion of national power, first on the continent, then into the Caribbean and the Pacific, and since the Second World War, everywhere on the globe.... But behind all those justifications was the urge to expand American economic and military power. The "war on terrorism" is the latest opportunity to expand U.S. political, economic and military power into other parts of the world."
