Please sign this petition and watch the YouTube video

From MoveOn.org:

I had to tell you about the energy bill that Congress is about to pass. Most of it is great--gets us more solar and wind energy and even makes cars more fuel efficient. But there's one line in there that was added at the last minute that gives up to $50 billion for the nuclear industry. Enough money to launch a whole new generation of plants.

If you thought we had beat back nuclear power in the 70's, you're not alone. A bunch of musicians who fought nukes back then have picked up their instruments and started fighting again.

Click here to check out the music video and sign the petition:


Nukes present a real security threat and environmental hazard. We've got to get Congress to strip this money before they pass the energy bill.

So, pass this on!

Have you heard about the crisis in Burma?

(The following is a email forward with a link at the bottom to sign a petition. I have a good friend here in Chicago who comes from Burma. While I am definitely not an expert on what's happening there, I know that this is something I would encourage others to support. Peace.)

Burma is ruled by one of the worst military dictatorships in the world.
Last month Buddhist monks and nuns began marching and chanting prayers
to call for democracy. The protests spread and hundreds of thousands of
Burmese people joined in -- but they've been brutally attacked by the
military regime.

I just signed a petition calling on Burma's powerful ally China and the
UN security council to step in and pressure Burma's rulers to stop the
killing. The petition has exploded to over 500,000 signatures in a few
days and is being advertised in newspapers around the world, delivered
to the UN Security Council, and broadcast to the Burmese people by
radio. We're trying to get to 1 million signatures this week, please
sign below and tell everyone!
