Imperialists lay down their weapons and join hands with those they had subjugated. Pen and ink drawing,  1999, Kara Priest.
March: Imperialism and Economic Injustice includes, for example, issues of "Third World" countries, environmental racism and degradation, capitalism in all of its aspects and all of its determining philosophies, economic racism, sexism, ageism, NAFTA, GATT and the MAI, the CIA, multinational industries, militarism, US as "World Mafia", possibility of a United Nations Binding Triad, weapons sales, impact of Y2K, death of family farms, sustainable agriculture and indigenous peoples world-wide.

Perhaps these topics lie at the heart of all of the connections of Connections 2000. When there is domination of one person over another, from parents who dominate children to those who believe that it is a natural right of humankind to dominate the earth and its beings, every instance of domination obscures or eliminates freedom. The individual loses freedom and the world loses equality and full participation of all of its beings.

There will always be disproportionate vulnerability. Whether it is family farms being gobbled by corporate farms, poor, undereducated single mothers facing welfare cutbacks, ethnic "cleansing", or the spider underfoot, rectification is always a possibility, and perhaps is the sine qua non of moral behavior. As in the case of unwanted bacteria, for example, or cockroaches or rats in basements, there are more or less humane and respectful methods of resolving situations. The ethical course is always on a continuum. Eventually, the coinciding of what is necessary and what is ethical will become starkly obvious, and the sustainability of the planet itself will depend on it.

Come to this subject from your own perspective and write about it--to newspapers, journals, newsletters and calls or letters to all voices of power.
