Dear Friends, 1/25/17 716-332-3904
As our dear and beloved hero Daniel Berrigan said, “Our apologies, good
friends, for the fracture of good order …. ” upon the burning of draft
files by the Catonsville Nine. We do nothing so noble or courageous, yet
we have been turning our “Weekly Update” announcements into daily
announcements because – the time is now, things are happening fast, and
this is not a practice run.
So we urge you to use good self-care, deep slow breathing, and whatever
helps you deal with the terrible acts and threatening horizons of the
Trump administration, and to come out when you can, publicize the events
and campaigns as you can, and know that we are all in this together.
As Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr said, “I believe that unarmed truth and
unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right,
temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”
Dear Friends, 716-332-3904
What a wonderfully inspiring gathering we had at the No Hate, No Mandate
March and Rally, with – to correct our estimate – 3,500-3,600 people
from all over WNY – a diverse, determined, and dynamic group that stood up
for each other and for our principles.

Buffalo Resistance Weekend has begun! after some wonderful events all this week!
Remembering Rev. Dr. King’s legacy of nonviolent direct action, we’ll join together this weekend with ongoing movement-building and advocacy in the weeks, months, and years to come! We will not sit idly by while some are building what looks like a 4th reich of facism (big business running the government), racism, and kleptocracy!
We are standing up for human rights, civil rights, justice, solidarity and true nonviolence (including stopping state-sponsored violence at home and aboard) – We shall overcome!/Si, se puede!!
Peace/Salam/Shalom/Shanti!! Nya weh/Asanti/Gracias/Tashakor/Thanks!!
