Calls From the Earth

By Tre Arrow (from Jail)

Beyond these walls and razorwire fences, there is a greater world; beyond the concrete and steel, the polluting cars and chemical plants, beyond the humyn (sic) -made buildings and machines, there is another world.

It is a place where time and age melt together and become meaningless; a place where wisdom, truth, solace and beauty weave their magic through all life; a place where the ancient wisdom of the universe flows through the water’s currents, seeps from the tree’s exhale, pours forth from the dancing of animals, pulsates from the rocks and the dirt.

Take a walk outside the world of lights, cars, roads and buildings, and find yourself sitting quietly among the flora and fauna.  Here you will find peace and beauty which is beyond humyn creation, which is the source of all life on the planet, which flows through every living thing and binds us together as family, and which brings certainty that there is more at work than the busy-ness of capitalism, consumerism, and material acquisition.

Wikipedia: Tre Arrow is a green anarchist who gained prominence in the U.S. state of Oregon in the late 1990s and early 2000s for his environmental activism, bid for Congress as a Pacific Green Party candidate, and then for his arrest and later conviction for committing acts of arson on cement and logging trucks. He unsuccessfully sought political asylum in Canada, and was extradited to Portland, Oregon, on February 29, 2008, to face 14 counts of arson and conspiracy. These actions were claimed as acts of protest by the Earth Liberation Front (ELF). On June 3, 2008, Arrow pled guilty to 2 counts of arson and was jailed for 78 months. He was released to a halfway house in 2009.

This peace and beauty is worth protecting; it is worth saving.  It is from the womb of our Mother that we all emerge, and She is being attacked and assaulted.  We have an obligation and responsibility to protect Her, as we would instinctually protect our biological mother.

Will you join in; will you listen to the calls for help; will you stand up and oppose the crimes against life, against all life?

We are all inextricably interconnected, and an injustice to one, humyn or non-humyn, is an injustice to all life on this sacred planet.

If not now, then when?  If not you and I, then who?
