take a stand for peace
- Blessings this wondrous day. My name is Oshana Himot and I am so grateful
to be a new member of this group.
I received this email from a friend of mine in Texas and felt it was fitting to
share it on the first day of this year. I do feel this will be a year in which we all
come together more as one voice for peace and that our voice will be heard.
Feel free to share this with other groups if you like.
Many wonderful wishes for a year of peace and joy,

I received this today from a friend ~ It sounds powerful! Grass roots strategies
have the power to change things, or at least call attention to things that are
wrong and use economics to get the attention of those that "run" the country.
There is time to take this vote GLOBAL ~ anyone with international contacts
please forward this to them.
Add your vote for PEACE by spending NO MONEY for 24 hours.
Not One Dime -- Spread the word!
This might be the closest we could come to a general strike in this country and
could be powerful symbolically if it were wide spread...
Not One Dime Day - Jan 20, 2005
Since our religious leaders will not speak out against the war in Iraq, since
our political leaders don't have the moral courage to oppose it, Inauguration
Day, Thursday, January 20th, 2005 is "Not One Dime Day" in America.
On "Not One Dime Day" is for those who oppose what is happening in our
name in Iraq can speak up with a 24-hour national boycott of all forms of
During "Not One Dime Day" please don't spend money. Not one dime for
gasoline. Not one dime for necessities or for impulse purchases. Not one
dime for anything for 24 hours.
On "Not One Dime Day," please boycott Wal-Mart, Kmart, Target etc...
Please don't go to the mall or the local convenience store or shop online.
Please don't buy any fast food (or any groceries at all for that matter).
For 24 hours, please do what you can to shut the retail economy down.
The object is simple. Remind the people in power that the war in Iraq is
immoral and illegal; that they are responsible for starting it and that it is their
responsibility to stop it.
"Not One Dime Day" is to remind them, too, that they work for the people of the
United States of America, not for the international corporations and lobbyists
who represent the corporations and funnel cash into American politics.
"Not One Dime Day" is about supporting the troops. The politicians put the
troops in harm's way.
Now 1,200 brave young Americans and (some estimate) 100,000 Iraqis have
died. The politicians owe our troops a plan -- a way to come home.
There's no rally to attend. No marching to do. No left or right wing agenda to
rant about. On "Not One Dime Day" you take action by doing nothing.
You open your mouth by keeping your wallet closed.
For 24 hours, nothing gets spent, not one dime, to remind our religious
leaders and our politicians of their moral responsibility to end the war in Iraq
and give America back to the people.
Please share this email with as many people as possible.
- Welcome to the group Oshana
unfortunately; one day does not hit them
people just get filled up the day before
do your own research
stop buying any products EVERY DAY of the rest
of your life. from companies who you do not support
why not protest
by putting your dimes
into the pockets of those who have earned your trust
perhaps, small business men, and not big corporations
big corporations do employ many people
not all big corporations are bad
just some of them.
i no longer invest money in the stockmarkets
i no longer borrow money from the bank
i no longer leave money; or anymore than
absolutely necessary in the bank
i use charge cards, and pay them in full
(that way the bank, earn nothing)
WHY STOP SPENDING for a DAY ???
WHY NOT RESEARCH and, stop spending
where it is not absolutely necessary
or; where you are not in alignment and/or agreement
with the actions of companies you purchase from
and; do that for your lifetime ?
why should all business suffer;
for the actions of a few ???
do you plan to go to work;
on Jan 21st ?
do you plan to get paid ?
it's the exchange;
that we need to alter
stop exchanging for a lifetime
with those who are not in the same
alignment; as your own alignment
that brings about permanent chance
love 'n light to you
