FOR THE SAKE OF LIFE WE MUST COME ALIVE
 
Today we gather to remember the victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan
that were killed by a weapon of mass destruction by the U.S..
 
The U.S. is the only nation to use such a nuclear weapon of mass
destruction. And now today, we are ready to invade Iraq.
 
We are told that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction. We are told that
Iraq is a rogue state. But who is the Bush administration fooling? And
who is the rogue state?
 
It's really all about oil. It's about control and domination. The New
World Order. Corporate globalization. It's about empire.
 
What is the number one industrial export of the U.S. today? Of course
it is weapons. And what is the global marketing strategy for the U.S.
number one industrial export? Conflict, tension, chaos, war. The U.S.
is turning the world into an utter mess.
 
Since 9-11 we are paying attention to Central Asia. We now know that
Central Asia has some of the largest deposits of oil and natural gas in
the world. We also know that Central Asia sits on the inland border of
China.
 
We are told by King George II that it is going to be a long, long war in
Central Asia. Permanent U.S. bases are being set up in the region. We
are told that war with Iraq is inevitable.
 
More weapons will be produced and used and will be paid for with U.S.
tax dollars. At the same time we are told there is no money for
education, health care, environmental clean-up, child care, public
transit and social security.
 
We know that big oil will benefit from the war in Central Asia and the
Middle East. It's the New World Order.
 
Star Wars is now underway too. Hundreds and hundreds of billions of
dollars will go to the aerospace industry to create war in the heavens.
It's called corporate welfare.
 
We are told it's about defending the American people. King George says
he wants to protect us from the rogue states like North Korea and China.
China, with its 20 nuclear missiles that can reach the U.S., while we
have over 7,000 nuclear weapons that could destroy China. And if you've
been in Wal-Mart or Kmart lately you know that the U.S. is China's best
customer. China is not going to attack the U.S. It's an absurd idea.
 
It's really about control and domination. The U.S. has it's boot on the
necks of the people of the world.
 
September 11 was a response. People around the world are getting tired
of being controlled and dominated by the U.S. The U.S. talks alot about
democracy, but King George says that we have to take out Iraq.
 
Who do we think we are? It's not democracy when you invade other
countries. That's what Hitler did. It's not moral to surround and
starve the children of Iraq. That's what Hitler did to the Jews.
 
It's time for the American people to come alive. We are more worried
about our social status than what we are doing to the world. We're more
worried about what our neighbors think of us than our obligation to take
care of the poor. We're more worried about the stock market than our
obligations to educate our children. We're more worried about our fancy
cars than our obligations to take care of the sick and the elderly.
 
Martin Luther King said that America is a sick society. We lecture the
world about weapons of mass destruction but then at laboratories like
Los Alamos here in New Mexico they are building nuclear weapons,
chemical, and biological weapons. America is a hypocrite nation and we
are hypocritical people.
 
We say one thing and do another. We all know about our genocide of
Native Americans and African Americans. We all know how the white man
stole native lands. Now the U.S. empire is moving to steal the oil rich
lands in the Middle East and Central Asia.
 
We are all responsible. It's our tax dollars at work. We watch the
Democrats and Republicans become one big war party. We say it does no
good to protest. We say we are tired and hopeless. Our communities
build the weapons. Our sons and daughters kill our so-called "enemies"
and it all benefits the big corporations. The New World Order.
Corporate globalization.
 
People all over the world are calling on us to lift the boot off their
necks. They no longer have any respect for the U.S. They see us for
the greedy bullies that we are. When are we going to stop?
 
Are we going to destroy the world so that we can control and dominate
everyone and everything?
 
For the sake of the future generations we must come alive. For the sake
of the Mother Earth we must protest. For the sake of our own conscience
we must say NO MORE!
