To the Editor:
As the world-wide pandemic of coronavirus shuts down countries and economies, I have to wonder where do we go from here?
We were already having a global climate crisis, an income disparity crisis, a democracy crisis, suicides and drug overdoses, unending wars for Wall Street greed, and a big bank borrowing bubble even bigger than 2008 that was about to burst, and now this. Something has to change!
There is probably about a year of real hardship ahead for all of us, and how we handle it will determine if we come out better or worse as a society. Will people communicate, cooperate, and use grassroots democracy to make our government more humane and controlled by We the People, or will the oligarchs continue to push our Nation further towards corporate fascism?
The New Hampshire Community Rights Network is working with local people to help their towns embrace community rights so they can democratically protect their citizens and local environment. This local organizing is the building blocks of REAL democracy!
Anyone can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for information and assistance. It’s up to YOU to act, the politicians are not going to save us!
