Coalition Against Election Fraud Urges Senators Not to Certify Illegal Electoral Votes
Seeking at least one U.S. Senator to take a stand on January 6 against illegal electoral votes, ten local activists with the Coalition Against Election Fraud (CAEF) headed to Washington D.C. on Tuesday to meet with Senators on Capitol Hill. Coalition members also braved the snow today as they continued their vigil outside of Senator John Kerry’s Boston home and met with an aide at Senator Edward Kennedy’s Boston office to plead their case.

Maine Woods Named One of Nation's Biggest and Best Forests in New Report
The Maine Woods was named as one of the nation’s “Keystone Forests” by the environmental group Greenpeace today.

In a new report, "America’s Keystone Forests: Mapping the Next 100 Years of Forest Protection," Greenpeace identifies the biggest forest areas left in the United States that provide the best habitat for the most diverse species. Of the 11 forests named, the Maine Woods stood out as the keystone forest made up of the highest percentage of private land. Most of the other keystone forests consist primarily of public lands.

A perilous journey from Flatbush to Falluja and
back leaves Herold Noel out in the cold

BROOKLYN - Four nights before Christmas, former Army specialist Herold Noel huddled for warmth in front of a fire he built for himself in Brooklyn's Prospect Park as temperatures slid toward the single digits. Plagued by nightmares and unable to hold a steady job or get the assistance he needed, he was on the verge of losing his wife and three young children. It wasn't the homecoming he'd expected after serving in Iraq last year.

Faith, Peace, and Justice
freconciliation.jpgI’m not a Christian yet I do take offense at how the Bush administration has heralded Christian moral values in the name of war. I also resent the media for shedding a light on groups of people who have been blinded by this rhetoric, while ignoring the many Christians who at the core of their values, believe in peace and justice for all. The presidential election was not lost on moral values; it was lost on the intellectual fight for truth against corporate domination. This is my Christmas present to all Old and New Testament faith-based activists who are keeping their faith in the world struggle.

Stop privatization of wastewater in Holyoke
Open Letter to the Aquarion Company

Attn: CEO Charles Firlotte.

Dear Mr. Firlotte and Aquarion,

Your subsidiary, the Aquarion Water Company of Massachusetts is the only bidder on a contract to design/build/operate the wastewater treatment facility and CSO abatement project in Holyoke, Massachusetts, where I would be one of your future ratepayers.

Mr. Firlotte, your company appears to be an honorable institution, and I mean no disrespect when I say that many of us in Holyoke don’t want the company to come here. We’ve formed a group called the Holyoke Citizens for Open Government, and although the contract is nearing final approval, we are doing what we can to halt the process.

Proposed bill would allow two parties to endorse the same candidate, giving voters more choices
A bill proposing to repeal the Commonwealth's ban on "cross endorsement" voting was filed in the House of Representatives on December 1. It is titled "An Act Providing Voters with More Ballot Choices."

Lifting the ban would allow two political parties to nominate and vote for the same candidate. This type of voting helps minor parties to build their strength, while avoiding the common pitfalls of the winner-take-all, two-party system. Supporters of a minor political party's platform are often reluctant to waste their vote on a candidate with no chance of winning - or in a close vote - inadvertently defeating the major party candidate who more nearly shares their views.
