Our only hope today lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit and go into a sometimes hostile world declaring eternal hostility to poverty, racism, and militarism. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Anyone who participated in the antiwar demonstration held at the Quadra community center on Feb. 15, 2003 has good reason to pause for a moment and reflect favorably on the valiant attempt made by ourselves to join with other people worldwide to halt the start of the war on Iraq.

If world leaders had listened to what we the people were calling for, hundreds of thousands of lives would have been saved.

And now, in the worldwide glow of what people power has accomplished in Egypt, perhaps we will give fresh thought to what might be possible if we once again organize ourselves on a global scale.
