Some Thoughts on a Worldwide Wave call to action.

This is the century of Nonviolent Global Democratic Revolution. Actions worldwide in April and beyond will substantiate that the spirit of Gandhi, King and Mandela is alive. I shall be bold in asserting, if anyone asks me, the objectives of this effort. They are what I believe must take place to build a future beyond the present.

1. A global Affordable Income for all. 

2. An immediate 50 percent cut in military budgets worldwide.

3. Immediate steps to magnify exposure to human rights abuses.  Training of millions to use social networks to highlight harm and abuse. And to power the Global Democratic Revolution.

4. Promotion of these universal values - Tolerance, Democracy, Helpfulness and Non-idolatry.

5. Public funding universally of all elections to political office.

There many specific goals equal to these. It cannot be said that those of us who are committed to non-violent democratic revolution are without objectives. In the case of 1. above, this idea is not limited to persons on the Left. Credible thinkers on the Right have proposed as much.

The first phase of the Worldwide Wave is set to begin on the anniversary of King’s assassination, April 4th, and run throughJuly 4th

The organizing site has a Post Actions function that allows people to easily share what they are planning to do, along with a map that shows active locations. 

To get the ball rolling, they have featured a few action campaigns that will run throughout the full three-month cycle:

1) Worldwide Wave Launch gatherings will be held on April 4th at Zuccotti Park and former occupation sites throughout the world.

2) On Mondays – Thursdays, they are calling for Move Your Money Bank Rallies. They are asking people to show up at local bank locations and Federal Reserve sites to encourage people to move their money to community banks and handout information on alternative currencies and new economic systems.

3) Every Friday they are planning Money Out Marches to local City Halls calling for a Constitutional Amendment to get money out of politics.

4) On Saturdays, they are calling for “social events in support of solutions.”

5) On Sundays, they are calling for mass meditations and prayer sessions “in support of ushering in a new paradigm.”

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis

The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …
