Happy new year to our readers

I wish all our readers a happy 2013. May it be personally blessed & may our political work to make this a better world make giant bounds forward.

I especially hope for stronger & more massive protests against US-NATO wars & US bombings; for growing solidarity with the Palestinians; for more powerful Arab uprisings which make a mockery of racist ideology & hold such high hopes for social transformation;  for major advances in immigrant rights--along with less cause for their dislocation & need to move--but safe passage to wherever they want to go if they have to move; & for renewed struggle against violence toward women & children.

I'm posting one of my favorite photos of Afghan refugees in Pakistan by the photojournalist, Muhammed Muheisen, who documents their plight & captures their beauty with such tenderness. Aren't children always the primary reason for changing the world?

(P.S. And is it wrong to add, I hope 2013 is the year Betty Windsor & her mutant clan are finally thrown out on their asses!?)


  1. Just imagine how GOOD it feels to get out!

  2. Happy New Year to you too, Mary. Amen to all that. BTW, this photo is simply adorable.

    1. Happy new year to you. And I just love this photo too.
