Standing in solidarity with the Uncut movement across the globe – Saturday March 26th marks the Uncut’s movement second Global Day of Action!

Still not feeling the urgency? Let’s have a look at what the Greedy Ba$tard$ have up their sleeve for their next trick:

Read it and weep – who’s behind it you ask? This lovely bunch of corporate types: http://www.civiccommittee.org/

These are the people who shovel money hand over fist into our electoral politics. They are they ones with the $$$ that buys their influence in our political discourse. They are the ones with the ear of our lawmakers.

It’s time those lawmakers who only seem to hear the voice of money talking, start listening to us.

We’re going to make them think twice before they vote to enact another tax holiday. Or continue to listen to the voice of money over the voice of the people who elect them.

If you haven’t been able to participate yet, now’s as good a time as any. We’re planning more demos going into the summer, and on-going actions incorporating street art and satirical demonstrations. There’s a lot of opportunities to spread the word, and we’ve got plenty of handout material.

If you have any questions, please – post them here. Or email us at info at usuncutchicago.org.

We need feet in the street. Your feet will do quite nicely. So put on some comfortable shoes and a smile. Bring a friend, bring two! You’re all necessary – and needed.

About fiercebuddhist

Welcome. I am happy that our paths have crossed. Here you will find various poems, articles and photography. I hope that you enjoy them and visit often. I am currently working on writing “A Haiku A Day” so that I can, perhaps, have enough good ones for publication. If you are wondering what a “Fierce Buddhist” the following declaration should clarify. The “Fierce” in FierceBuddhist I define as “an obligation to do what I can to benefit all sentient beings, not just those close to me or those I agree with. If I see something or someone that is hurting others I must step forward and do what I can to assist them.” In the Army and in the dojo I learned how to defend myself, family and country but that does not mean I endorse the use of force. Two nonviolent examples of Fierce Buddhists that come to mind are Thich Nhat Hanh and the Dalai Lama. While I do not claim be even close to them I can strive and so can you. Furthermore, my Buddhist name, given to me by Sensei Kubose, is Seiyo. His interpretation of my communication and interaction with him led him to this name. He told me Seiyo means “Fierce Sun.” The sun shines on everyone without prejudices without giving preferential treatment to anyone. This is tough to live up to, as you can imagine, but it sure sets the tone for my life. In Buddhism this is called a Fierce Bodhisattva. I am only on the path to Enlightenment and can only say to be a Fierce Buddhist.
