    who lost her son during his military service. Another woman, Sakine Arat, lost three
    children after they joined the pro-Kurdish terrorist organization, the Kurdish Workers Party
    (PKK). "This war does not benefit anyone,” she says. “It has lasted for years, and it needs
    to end."

    Call to action:
    Americas Women Meeting Against War and for
    Peace
    “Silence the weapons so that women and the people may speak out in defense of life”
    The Women’s Social Movement against War and for Peace and the World March of
    Women are initiatives that bring together women’s organizations and social movements in
    Colombia and internationally. We have joined forces so that, based on organization,
    mobilization, and dialogue, we might reflect and raise our voices on the critical situation of
    social and armed conflict that the people of the Americas, and Colombia in particular, are
    living today – a situation that affects the territory, the sovereignty, and the especially the
    lives, autonomy, and bodies of women.

    It is us, women, who have suffered the ravages of war, which are social, psychological,
    economic, and physical. We and our bodies are considered spoils of war; we are lowered
    to the level of object and perceived as being the property of men. War aggravates
    violence, poverty, and inequality and their perverse effects, as well as displacement,
    feminicide, and disappearances, all of which affect women disproportionately. In addition,
    the responsibility for supporting the family falls on women as the State
    fails to offer basic services, prioritizing instead military projects.

    12-11-09        Bill Moyers with Heather Boothe and George Goehl
    Video:  http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/12112009/watch.html

    December 11, 2009
    BILL MOYERS: Welcome to the Journal. There's only one way to counter the power of
    organized money, and that's with the power of organized people. This is the theme of
    our broadcast this week.

    People Power – RE: Bail out of the Banks

    GEORGE GOEHL: The one thing we have, our own political currency, is people. And
    people are ready to hit the streets. Today is a beginning of a much larger set of
    mobilizations that are going to take place all across the country. We're just getting' started.

    “they recognize it's a David and Goliath fight. And it's only through their action that we're
    going to make things happen.”

    HEATHER BOOTH: And it's not just David, it's Jane and Sue and all sorts of folks getting
    together, because we really do have a people power,

    “And people are starting to organize.”

    GEORGE GOEHL: On this last Saturday in Iowa, 60 people took over a payday lending
    branch there and said, "Enough is enough." So, a lot of the action, and I think the kind of
    action that leads to true movement building, and we really need a popular movement if
    we're going to win this kind of fight. We can play in the game of inches in D.C. But if we
    really want to move things in terms of feet and yards, it's going to take part popular unrest
    that the media cannot deny happening across the country. And it's starting to happen all
    over the place.


    GEORGE GOEHL: What we're trying to do is really organize around a set of ideas. And
    when we think a real successful movement would be more around an allegiance to ideas
    over party. And some of that'll contain protests. But it's really about a vision of what we
    want to create. Around a more fair and just economy. So, right now, I think a lot of the
    action is around banking reform. But I think we're building the foundation for a big
    movement around an economy that serves us all.

    GEORGE GOEHL: As Heather knows, there was a period in the in the field of community
    organizing, where the different networks didn't always work that well together. And the
    people that we served were not served well by that lack of collaboration. But there's a new
    generation of leadership that's trying to break through those old barriers and say, "Hey,
    what if we came together? What if we started to aggregate all the power that we're doing
    around the country into something much bigger?" So, I'm more- we're definitely on the
    ropes right now in financial reform. It's a tough fight. I'm more optimistic than ever that
    we're in a position to turn the tide.

    HEATHER BOOTH: Change is hard. Partly because money, largely dominates politics,
    media, and so many factors of our life. These opposition forces, the insurance
    companies, the big financial interests, the big energy companies. They're still around. But
    this is a new moment. I actually believe that it is a historic opening. Not with a guarantee of
    change, but with a promise that there's an opening for change if we seize it.

    HEATHER BOOTH: Well, the fight continues. There's a vote in the House on financial
    reform. And then it goes over to the Senate. And it's interesting. There's actually even a
    stronger bill in the Senate. And Senator Chris Dodd is actually leading a fight for real
    reform, for democratizing the Federal Reserve, for ensuring that derivatives, this casino
    economy is more regulated. That we can move for an end to the kind of foreclosure crisis
    we've got. And that we move for our consumer financial protection agency. And then we're
    talking about activities well, actually, December 14th when the bonuses come out, they'll
    be bonus demonstrations around the country. And then that will carry on through January
    and February. And we think there's a gathering storm.

    GEORGE GOEHL: This is an incredible opportunity to turn a tragedy into something
    good. So, if we can get it together, and I really think is not about the Congress. This is not
    about the President. This is about the people watching this show and other Americans
    saying, 'Enough is enough.' And I'm going to move from my seat out into the streets, from
    fingers on a keyboard, boots on the ground, and get out there." Whether that means
    calling the Members of Congress. Whether it means organizing a little protest in front of a
    bank. Whether it means making a YouTube video and cutting up your credit cards and
    posting it and sending it out to your friends. If people get engaged, we can win this fight.
    And that's happening. There are actions planned all across the country in 25 states over
    through the end of the year. And then as next year comes around, you'll start to see more
    events like the showdown in Chicago.

    12-11-10        Bill Moyers with Howard Zinn
    Video:  http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/12112009/watch2.html

    Three (3) major segments of the show highlighted women!

    From Howard Zinn in The People’s History of the US
    “, this would not come, if history were any guide, from the top. It would come through
    citizen's movements, educating, organizing, agitating, striking, boycotting, demonstrating,
    threatening those in power with disruption of the stability they needed."

    HOWARD ZINN: The idea of people involved in history, people actively making history,
    people agitating and demonstrating, and pushing the leaders of the country into change
    in a way that leaders themselves are not likely to initiate.

    1.
    [MARISSA TOMEI as GENORA DOLLINGER]: Workers overturned police cars to make
    barricades. They ran to pick up the fire bombs thrown at them and hurl them back at the
    police. The men wanted to me to get out of the way. You know the old "protect the women
    and children" business. I told them, "Get away from me." The lights went on in my head. I
    thought I have never used a loud speaker to address a large crowd of people but I've got
    to tell them there are women down here. I called to them, "Cowards! Cowards! Shooting
    into the bellies of unarmed men and firing at the mothers of children." And then everything
    became quiet. I thought, "The women can break this up."

    Howard Zinn:  My daughter said a chill, a chill went through her. She was so moved. And
    so, when I see this, and I've seen this so many times, and each time I am moved because
    what it tells me is that just ordinary people, you know, people who are not famous, if they
    get together, if they persist, if they defy the authorities, they can defeat the largest
    corporation in the world.

    2.
    HOWARD ZINN: Christina Kirk, a wonderful actress and she brings Susan B. Anthony
    alive. And I think what that says to people today is you must stick up for your principles,
    even if it means breaking the law. Civil disobedience, it's what Thoreau urged, it's what
    Martin Luther King, Jr. urged. It's what was done during the Civil Rights movement and the
    Vietnam War. If you think you're right, then — Susan B. Anthony thought it was right for
    her to try to register to vote. And yeah, people should defy the rules if they think they're
    doing the right thing.


    3.
    [KERRY WASHINGTON as SOJOURNER TRUTH]: That man over there says that women
    need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place
    everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles, or gives me any
    best place! And ain't I a woman? Look at me! I have ploughed and planted, and gathered
    into barns, and no man could head me! And ain't I a woman? I could work as much and
    eat as much as any man — when I could get it — and I could bear the lash as well! And
    ain't I a woman? I have borne thirteen children, and seen most sold off into slavery, and
    when I cried out with my mother's grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain't I a woman?
    That man in the back there, he says women can't have as much rights as men, 'cause
    Christ wasn't a woman! Well, where did your Christ come from? Where did your Christ
    come from? He came from God and a woman! Man didn't have nothing to do with it. If the
    first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down all alone,
    well these women here together ought to be able to turn it back, and get it right side up
    again! And they asking to do it, the men better let them.

    BILL MOYERS: Why did you include that one?

    HOWARD ZINN: Well, we included that one because it's so empowering. And, I mean,
    because here is this woman who was a slave and, you know, oppressed on all sides, and
    she's defiant. And so, she represents the voice of people who've been overlooked. And
    she represents a voice which is rebellious and, yeah, troublesome to the powers that be.

    12-19-09  Bill Moyers with Robert Kuttner
    http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/12182009/transcript1.html

    About Obama:
    ROBERT KUTTNER: “this guy is nothing if not a work in progress. He's nothing if not a
    learner.” And I think there is a chance. I don't think I would bet my life on it but I think
    there's a possibility that by the fall of 2010, looking down the barrel of a real election
    blowout, you could see him change course, if only for reasons of expediency, but
    hopefully for reasons of principle as well, if he feels that the public doesn't have
    confidence that he is delivering the kind of recovery that the public needs. This is a guy
    who is a very smart, complicated man. And I think don't speak too soon, for the wheel's
    still in spin. I don't want to totally give up.


    ROBERT KUTTNER: The other thing that's missing, if you compare him with Roosevelt or
    LBJ or Lincoln, the other thing that's missing is a social movement. In all of these great
    periods of transformation, you had social movements doing a complicated dance with the
    president, where sometimes they were working with him, sometimes they were beating up
    on him. That certainly describes the civil rights movement and Lyndon Johnson. It
    describes the abolitionists and Lincoln. It describes the labor movement and Roosevelt.
    Where's the movement?

    “ordinary people need a champion. “


    ROBERT KUTTNER: I think there are periods of American history when the political
    system rises to the occasion. It certainly did with the civil rights movement. It certainly did
    in the 1930s. But there's no guarantee that it's going to come out the way it needs their
    come out. So I wouldn't give up on the political system. I mean, you have to keep fighting
    and working to rebuild democracy. Democracy is the only possible counterweight to
    concentrated financial power. And ideally, that takes a great president rendezvousing with
    a social movement. One way or another, there is going to be a social movement. Because
    so many people are hurting, and so many people are feeling correctly that Wall Street is
    getting too much and Main Street is getting too little. And if it's not a progressive social
    movement that articulates the frustration and the reform program, you know that the right
    wing is going to do it. And that, I think, is what ought to be scaring us silly.
