Alliance for the Common Good greets incoming Maine legislatorsJanuary 8, 2013
CODEPINK State of Maine
History was made yesterday when the newly formed Alliance for the Common Good met the incoming 126th Legislature. It was led by indigenous people from Maine's four nations who sang in Wabanaki a song that translates to "My people, oh my people, this Earth is for you."
We came together as environmentalists (Earth First!, No East West Corridor, No Thanks Searsport Tank, No Pipeline, 350.org), peace workers (Veterans for Peace, CODEPINK Maine, Peace & Justice Center of Eastern Maine, American Friends Service Committee) and social justice advocates (Occupy, especially Augusta, was out in force plus Resources for Organizing Social Change, Maine People's Alliance, and the inimitable Artists Rapid Response Team (ARRT) of the Union of Maine Visual Artists).
