    United Methodists Debate Divestment from Israel's Occupation

    in News

    As support grows for a selective Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against companies profiting from Israel's occupation of Palestinian lands, many around the world are watching closely as the United Methodist Church considers a groundbreaking resolution at its general convention in Tampa, Florida. The resolution calls for the church to "divest promptly" from Caterpillar, Motorola Solutions, and Hewlett-Packard -- companies that supply some of the products used to maintain Israel's illegal policies in the occupied Palestinian territories.
    Please join the IMEU as we discuss these and other issues with Palestinian, Israeli, and American supporters of the divestment resolution.

    Abbas new government getting pat on the back by world leaders, privately

    in News

    EU, US, UK, South Africa, UN is working with the coalition government of Abbas.


      It is showing that Israel is the true enemy of the world and not Hamas etc.  I like the idea of the new elections too. that will make a big difference to many of the NATO countries aside from Israel and perhaps Russia.  Time will tell which way the wind may blow.  


      I see a very positive trend from Egypt with and agreement to open the Rafah gate permanently upon the realization of the new government in Palestine.  I wonder how long the segregated Israel will last after that. Hopefully not long.

    CLEAN ENERGY ADVOCATE, BILLY RIXON, OF 350-MAINE

    in Culture

    ENVISION THIS: Walking the talk of solving the planetary climate crisis


    Billy Rixon of Freeport, Maine, is dedicated to ending our dependence on fossil fuels and building a healthy, sustainable life for people and the planet. In a letter to the editor of the Portland Press Herald, Billy said:


    “In light of the winter weather we have experienced this year, some people have questioned the validity of global warming. Perhaps “climate disruption” would be a better way of understanding what is going on throughout the country, as “climate disruption” doesn’t always mean warming in every location. Western droughts and wildfires, the Colorado floods, Southern deep freezes, “megastorms” and polar vortexes are all part of a pattern that has been predicted by scientists studying climate change. The rapid warming and melting of the polar ice cap occurring in the Arctic have led to a weakening of the jet stream, pushing it far to the north in the western part of our continent and dipping down far to the south in the east. We can expect more severe weather events as this process accelerates. Isn’t it time we consider the long-range consequences of climate change and do everything we can to moderate its impact on future generations?”


    As a grassroots organizer at 350 Maine, Billy advocates for total divestment of all state monies in fossil fuels; supports the student-led effort to convince Bowdoin College to divest; advocates for a decentralized renewable energy system that is guided by people and not profit margins; and joined a 70-mile walk in Cape Cod to back clean energy.


    Let’s walk a mile in his moccasins.
