Thanks! Let’s keep in mind that we are at a different place and time now. Movement building has to be simultaneously local and global. In other words, we’ve got to connect the dots from the Congo to Chicago. Real victories happen when we shatter the silos in which we organize for systemic change.

We do the best we can with limited resources. I’d point out that over the years we’ve covered veterans issues extensively, including VVAW and IVAW.

Where are the veterans in this report? I’m sure Rothenberg noticed them and their powerful presence.
