The revolution is looking pretty sparce so far. We’re hoping the masses are going to show up soon so we can remain hopeful there’ll be change! Otherwise Costa Rica is looking real good. The volunteers got together in the “Friends Church (Quakers) in whose parking lot we are occupying. Then it was a day of checking out the city and wow, what a great day we had touring around. Ended the day with frozen yogart and that was yummy. (more…)
The OTR RV will be heading out of Pueblo, CO on July 19th and heading to Philly for the People’s Revolution the DNC Convention. We are looking forward to the trip east where we hope to meet all our friends also attending these events. We encourage everyone who can to join us for this historic event.
The ‘V’ is ready!
What a beautiful trip as we drove through Pagosa Springs and visited the hot springs…wow. Came across an indigenous school and they all loved the RV. I interviewed teacher Belinda Garcia (teacher) about their school, then they interviewed me about OTR. We then drove to Durango where we occupied Walmarts parking lot until this morning before heading to Oscars for an amazing breakfast. The people are quite friendly here and the city is very clean. Later it’s off to Telluride, Montrose and Salida on our way back to Pueblo. (more…)
Hundreds of journalists around the world pored over the 11.5 million files leaked last year by an anonymous source that reveal how the rich and powerful in numerous countries use tax havens to hide their wealth. The files were leaked from one of the world’s most secretive offshore companies, Mossack Fonseca, a law firm based in Panama. They were obtained from an anonymous source by the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung, who shared them with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. We hear the story of the collaboration, which did not include The New York Times, from Frederik Obermaier, an investigative reporter at Süddeutsche Zeitung, which helped publish the Panama Papers, and Michael Hudson, senior editor at the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.
We, at OTR, hope everyone will enjoy good health, family and friends for 2016! Let your dreams be big and the roadblocks small. Find your passion and attack it with wild abandon! Don’t let fear stop you from achieving whatever you put your heart into.
Martin Luther King, jr said it best when he wrote a letter from Birmingham jail (which was perfect timing to have received recently and which will be put up soon for all to see):
“We must come to see that human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability. It comes through the tireless efforts and persistent work of those willing to be co-workers with God, and without this hard work time itself becomes an ally of the forces of social stagnation. We must use time creatively, and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right. Now is the time to make real the promise of democracy.”
Little by little the whistleblowers are coming forward to let the public know that what we hear and what is actually happening are two different stories. Thanks to the brave men (and some women) for letting us know the truth about what’s going on. America needs to know that war and the unjust behavior, guised as protecting us, is wrong.
She made the leap in Pueblo to join the race in a run for City Council District 2. We need strong representation and it appeared that no one was stepping up (other than one guy who’d already been in council) so the wheels are in motion. It’s critical that we have visionaries and doers to make positive change in Pueblo!
Our guest Bob Ballard arrived from California and played guitar and sang along the Pueblo RiverWalk on Friday. Pueblo House collaborated with Operation Paintbrush from NeighborWorks (who are fixing and painting 2 blocks of homes on the Eastside of Pueblo) to do a fundraiser. Then, on Saturday he performed at “The Daily Grind” on Union Ave. where he gave another stellar performance. Bob writes his own songs and you can’t help but find yourself humming and singing them long after the music stops. (more…)
This young man shares his song with the world. There’s nothing good about war. It sends brave young men and women into harms way and it’s usually for some resource needed by the rich. In this day and age we should be bringing peace and love not violence. (more…)
Protesters in the Mexican state of Guerrero have set fire to the local legislature as outrage spreads over the disappearance of 43 students. The students from Ayotzinapa teacher’s college have been missing for nearly seven weeks after they were ambushed by police. Unrest has intensified since Mexican Attorney General Jesús Murillo Karam announced Friday that suspects in the case have admitted to killing the students and incinerating their bodies at a trash dump. More than 70 people have been arrested in the case, including the mayor of Iguala, who is accused of ordering the police attack ……see more on the story here:
