Whatever happened to the DU Activist Corps?????
Advertisements [?]
There was excellent participation by members -- hundreds and hundreds of LTTEs and dozens of them published, and I suppose the old mandatory adage applies to the Left: if it works, don't keep doing it. Find something else that doesn't and get with the program.

And of course, I'm sure there's a blizzard of rationales as to why there hasn't been any new suggested actions for weeks and weeks and weeks. What was needed was MORE, not less, even as they got their groove together. Instead, the issue was allowed to drop.

Even that little crumb of activism was verboten eh? I have openly wondered why there is no movement really organizing at the grassroots in the US to end absolute poverty ("world hunger") or why no sustained peace movement so that when wars come up, we don't have to turn to groups like ANSWER.
