World Environment Day

"When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to
everything else in the Universe." – John Muir

On this World Environment Day, June 5, 2008, we celebrate our inter-
connectedness with all the peoples and species of this amazing
planet. And we renew our commitment to work together to sustain life
on Earth in all its wondrous diversity, and promote peace and
justice among the human family.

From the staff, board and volunteers of Global Response,
Happy World Environment Day!

"In our wired-up world, momentum and support can come from almost
any quarter, and the gift of solidarity increasingly binds and
supports social movements and socially conscious individuals. … I
have the privilege of meeting many people who have achieved
incredible victories against overwhelming odds. And many others who
are enmeshed in the good fight within systems that seem designed to
snuff them out.

When I ask what [we] can do to help, I usually get an answer that
threw me the first few times I heard it. Instead of seeking some
material contribution, which would obviously help, the request is
often to lend one’s voice and commitment and to let them know they
are not alone.

As gifts go, solidarity is wonderful – the potential is limitless,
it can be transferred from giver to giver with no expectation of
return and it benefits not just the recipient but wider society."

— "Daring to Dream" by Dinyar Godrej,
New Internationalist, May 2007, p.6.

Also, thanx for signing my petitions, et al, please consider sharing them. Also, since Admin. of change.org aren't allowing me to invite people to do my actions lately and are switching my urls for my petitions so when I invite people off their site they can't get to the petition either (ergo 3 possible urls for each petition), here's a few of my latest actions; do as few or as many as you'd like (there are 3 linx for each petition because admin. switches between the 3 of them so people trying to sign the petition can‘t get to it): This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Haiti disaster anniversary, please, do what you can: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9033 This petition on change.org: Haiti disaster anniversary: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2?share_id=yIpWHEHxri&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2 http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Green, Indigenous, Native American, etc., actions: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9026 This petition on change.org: Green, Indigenous, Native American, acts: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous_native_american_acts?share_id=NHvTtQadfP&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, holiday: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9024 This petition on change.org: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. M.L.
