Hi, my name is Jim Macdonald, and I have an odd assortment of interests. In no particular order, I love Yellowstone, I am an anti-authoritarian activist and organizer, and I have a background in philosophy, having taught at the college level. My blog has a lot more links to my writing and my other Web sites. In Jim's Eclectic World, I try to give a holistic view of my many interests. Often, all three passions show themselves interweaving in the very same blog. Anyhow, I think it's a little different. But, that's me. I'm not so much out there, but taken together, I'm a little unusual.

    John Negroponte protested at his home again

    The DC Anti-War Network (DAWN) protested John Negroponte at his home last night with a significantly larger protest. We shouted things like, "A la corte" ("to the court", a reference to the World Court where some have called for Negroponte to go for his crimes, especially in Central America), "asesino" ("murderer"), "Murderers Not Welcome Here!", "Torturers Not Welcome Here!", "Domestic Spies Not Welcome Here!"

    Because of outreach to neighbors, some watched while a couple even joined in.

    We also had a torture survivor from El Salvador, who blames John Negroponte for his part in death squads from Honduras, who tortured and nearly killed him over a period of months. It was heartbreaking listening to him talk in Negroponte's driveway in one of the only quiet moments of the evening. Some of the police listened intently to him, and one can only wonder what they thought of the fact that they were protecting Negroponte and his property.

    There were no arrests, though a man mistakenly walked onto Negroponte's property to take pictures was nearly arrested. He had heard about the protest over the radio and came out.

    Some neighbors got in their car and drove up and down the street honking in support.

    We had a diverse group from young to old, several people of color, especially Latinos, and ranging across several anti-war and justice groups.

    Now, we have to figure out our next steps. It's one thing to have actions increasing in effectiveness; it's another to really organize a perpetual pain in the side for this criminal.

    If people have ideas, it would be great if they shared them.
