listen to one of the most wonderful PSAs of all time

“We can get America back if we get ourselves back. You don’t need drugs; you don’t need gurus; you only need to believe in yourself. Remember it only takes a small circle of friends to get back to a life based on reality rather than escape.”

We’d like to add that you don’t need supermarkets, you don’t need cars; and you sure don’t need TV. You just need a small plot of dirt and a packet of seeds to get back in touch with the earth.

(Anyone who knows the story of Ochs’s life will undoubtedly find some irony in this song, but, gosh darmnit, Phil Ochs, we still love just you!)

HERE.
On Sunday, March 2, 2014, a group of young people called XL Dissent organized a march from Georgetown University to Lafayette Park, which is opposite the White House, to register their opposition to the possible approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Going into more depth than the NEWS BRIEF, this video gives voice to President Obama,  Secretary of State John Kerry, as well as, the young people participating in this action. They include: Ben Thompson of Students for a Just and Stable Future, Hannah Berkowitz, a President Obama campaign worker and Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, a 14 year old activist from the Earth Guardians, of Boulder, Colorado.
