On Alcatraz, a defiant memory of a bloody thanksgiving;

In Seattle, a defiant march against a new invasion

Young Indians dance in the dawn fog at an unthanksgiving Alcatraz ceremony. A mournful, defiant remembrance of the first thanksgiving which was the celebration of a puritan massacre of Indians...

... A few days later, Seattle streets are filled with a similar defiance, some joyful like the Anti-Fascist Marching Band. Some mournful like the Greed Kills sign...

Most important sign in Seattle recognizes that as long as one of us is exploited all of us are threatened. An injury to one is an injury to all. The sign is carried by Fred Hirsch. In the foreground Mark Glass, both from San Jose Plumbers Local 363. Elfie was videoing for the local the involvement of 5 of their members in the protests.

Seattle was a massive confirmation that we all need each other. Unions cannot prevail without religious folks or environmentalists and visa versa all around... At issue now is: how do we grow and spread and sustain the Seattle unity¿¿¿???
