Massachusetts Green Rainbow Party

2013 Convention is proud to announce the keynote

speaker for our Nov. 9 2013 convention in Worcester Ma.,

Tim Dechristopher

As you may know, Tim DeChristopher was the activist who "spoiled" the auction of public lands to large corporations in Utah in December of 2008.  He was later convicted and served about 2 years for his "crime". 

A short quote from his final statement to the judge might give you a flavor of his message: 

“[My message] may indeed be threatening to the power structure....  The message is about recognizing our interconnectedness. The message is that when people stand together, they no longer have to be exploited. Alienation is perhaps the most effective tool of control in America, and every reminder of our real connectedness weakens that tool.”  (More about his inspiring story is at http://www.peacefuluprising.org/tim-dechristopher/tims-story, and in the documentary Bidder 70) (http://vimeo.com/19752485)

I echo the statement posted by Joseph Carvalho. There is nothing like running for local office that puts one in direct touch with what is needed to accomplish our political agenda for change.

Also, (quoting directly from Joanna Macy)
“The most remarkable feature of this historical moment on Earth is not that we are on the way to destroying the world — we’ve actually been on the way for quite a while. It is that we are beginning to wake up, as from a millennia-long sleep, to a whole new relationship to our world, to ourselves and each other.”

Let’s use this 2013 Green-Rainbow Party Convention to continue coming awake, however painful and glorious this might be

I can’t wait to get together with my fellow Green-Rainbow Party members and chart a course for the future of our Party, our State and our Country!
