Posted to Poetry and Politics




"As a Native American, every time I see the American flag I feel the same
way I imagine Jewish people must feel when looking at the Nazi flag. The
American flag is a flag of oppression and genocide. Because that's what
America is built on - from the very beginning when the first European
settlers landed in North America, it has been a country built on blood."
Rod Coronado, Native American activist, speaking in Brighton last week.

"It's really not a number I'm terribly interested in." General Colin
Powell, when asked about the number of Iraqi people who were killed by
Americans in the 1991 Desert Storm campaign (200,000 people,
incidentally)
