"End the Wars, Tax the Rich!"
by PHYLLIS BENNIS
The Occupy movement is bringing new energy, new activists, new ideas, new strategies into our movements for peace, justice and equality. One of the chants I heard last week, from folks at Brooklyn for Peace where I was speaking, seemed to capture the moment particularly well:
“How do we end the deficit? End the wars and tax the rich!”
It’s good advice. We’ve got a lot of work to do to get there."
