Not In My Name:

Whether it’s US/NATO Bombing of the Middle East (& elsewhere) since WWII; 68 years of Criminal Actions of Israel upon Palestinians & its Neighbours; the Clandestine, Destabilising & False Flag actions of Secret Services Agencies, or Institutional Abuses Anywhere. Abuse of Employees; of Disabled; of Children & Families; the Mentally Ill; & People of Race – ‘Not In My Name’ you don’t.

Almost none of the Military aggression or Human Rights Abuses, undertaken in the name of our Nations, in the name Christianity, in the name of Islam or in the name of the Jews is justifiable.
 
If ‘Justifiable’ Economic Sanctions against ‘Governments’ & otherwise positive Trading & Diplomatic Methods have proven effective in working with ‘Powerful Nations’, then they should be adequate & proportionate for the Powerless Nations & People. Justice must be served, whatever. Never abuse our power, in whatever form it takes.
 
The same is true of the Criminal Associations (Allies & Friendly Regimes) we form with Murderous Regimes & Groups, from Israel & Saudi Arabia to the Terrorist Groups that ‘WE’ have helped set up, supply and fund in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and much of South America & the Far East
 
‘Not in My Name’ you don’t. For as long as our Nations, Politico-Religious Sects/Cults & Institutions of various kinds, continue to behave in inhuman & abusive ways, I will speak out against those actions, whatever the consequences for myself, politically, economically & socially
 
Sometimes you have to have the courage of your convictions and even risk being wrong at times. Remaining silent & inactive is not an option. I am pleased to say, some of my Campaigns of the past were very successful, but the task is not complete. Those & other Campaigns continue.
