As we move closer to WWIII with Russia, pay attention to those calling for peace. Peace is an important goal to work towards, but thanks to the cries of many our communities are now poorly positioned to seriously advocate on behalf of peace.

How are we supposed to argue against war and the human rights of those oversees as we've been advocating and excusing violence and vandalism against our neighbors?

How are we supposed to argue against war and the human rights of others as we've entangled ourselves with slavers and enshrined the products of slavery?

How are we supposed to argue against war and the human rights of others as we've openly collaborated with foreign interests to subvert our democracy?

How are we supposed to argue against war and the human rights of others as we've called Portland itself a Warzone and belittled the seriousness of the term?

How are we supposed to argue against war and the human rights when we've undermined those ideas for years as it applies to our own communities?

Can you understand what has been happening yet?
