Our Mission
WAWA/WeAreWideAwake is my Public Service to America as a muckracker who has journeyed seven times to Israel Palestine since June 2005. WAWA is dedicated to confronting media and governments that shield the whole truth.

We who Are Wide Awake are compelled by the "fierce urgency of Now" [Rev MLK, Jr.] to raise awareness and promote the human dialogue about many of the crucial issues of our day: the state of our Union and in protection of democracy, what life is like under military occupation in Palestine, the Christian EXODUS from the Holy Land, and spirituality-from a Theologically Liberated Christian Anarchist POV.

"We're on a mission from God."
The Blues Brothers

"Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all...and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave...a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils."
George Washington's Farewell Address - 1796

"My aim is to agitate & disturb people. I'm not selling bread, I'm selling yeast."
Unamuno

PRESS RELEASE-FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE   December 15, 2011

 

Contact: Max Obuszewski [410] 366-1637 or mobuszewski at verizon.net

BRADLEY MANNING SUPPORTERS DISAPPOINTED, BUT DETERMINED

 

WHO: Bradley Manning, the army private accused of leaking classified information to Wikileaks, after close to 600 days of incarceration finally appeared in a military court on December 16, 2011.  As this Article 32 hearing proceeded, the defense seemed limited by the choice of the judicial officer who conducted the legal matter and the number of witnesses allowed to be called.  If indeed Manning released the documents, he is a hero for blowing the whistle on U.S. war crimes and government alliances with despotic regimes in the Middle East and elsewhere. 


The Pledge of Resistance-Baltimore, the Bradley Manning Support Network and other organizations first protested the private’s severe mistreatment while he was in the Quantico Marine Base brig in Virginia.  And organized efforts to Free Bradley Manning are continuing.

 

WHAT: On March 20, 2011, for example, thirty three activists, including Daniel Ellsberg who released the Pentagon Papers, Col. [Ret.] Ann Wright, and Max Obuszewski with the Baltimore Pledge were arrested outside the entrance to the Quantico Marine Base in Triangle, Virginia. The arrests took place on Route 1 after a rally condemning the torture of Pfc. Bradley Manning, an alleged whistleblower, then imprisoned in the Quantico brig.  He was kept in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day at that time for a period of eight months and suffered other indignities. 


Lt. Colonel Paul Almanza has now concluded that there is enough evidence presented at the Article 32 hearing to proceed to a court martial.  It seems likely that the Military District of Washington authority Col. Carl R. Coffman will eventually send a recommendation for a court martial to Maj. Gen. Michael Linnington.  And Gen. Linnington is sure to follow orders and decide to court martial Pfc. Manning.

 

WHEN: Soon.


WHERE: It is assumed the court martial will take place at Fort Meade, Maryland 21113


WHY: Pfc. Bradley Manning was mistreated so that a message could be sent to other soldiers not to expose U.S. misconduct, malfeasance and illegal activities.  The mistreatment stopped after citizens came together and publicly lambasted the government and military for such despicable behavior.  It is hoped that continued pressure from the citizenry can force the government to rethink its case against Manning. Should this case go to court martial, it is possible that details of more illegal government activities will be revealed.

 

The diplomatic cables which Wikileaks released confirmed suspected corruption at high levels of the Tunisian government. The outrage over the circumstances surrounding Mohamed Bouazizi’s death was intensified after these revelations.  And the revolution in Tunisia was emulated and became the inspiration for the Arab Spring.

 

It can be argued that the Arab Spring also gave inspiration to people in the USA.  Occupation Wall Street, for example, caused outraged citizens to occupy public space in some 2,700 other cities.  


Since the court martial seems to be an inevitability, the Pledge of Resistance–Baltimore and many other groups will continue efforts to Free Bradley Manning.  And these efforts are linked to the struggle to prevent Julian Assange, of Wikileaks, from being deported to the United States.  There is great fear that if Assange were brought to the U.S., he would be charged, like Manning, under the Espionage Act, which can carry a death penalty. ###

The Paradoxical Commandments
by Dr. Kent M. Keith

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

© 1968, 2001 Kent M. Keith

" In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway."-Mother Teresa


“You cannot talk like sane men around a peace table while the atomic bomb itself is ticking beneath it. Do not treat the atomic bomb as a weapon of offense; do not treat it as an instrument of the police. Treat the bomb for what it is: the visible insanity of a civilization that has ceased...to obey the laws of life.”- Lewis Mumford, 1946



The age of warrior kings and of warrior presidents has passed. The nuclear age calls for a different kind of leadership....a leadership of intellect, judgment, tolerance and rationality, a leadership committed to human values, to world peace, and to the improvement of the human condition. The attributes upon which we must draw are the human attributes of compassion and common sense, of intellect and creative imagination, and of empathy and understanding between cultures."  - William Fulbright



“Any nation that year after year continues to raise the Defense budget while cutting social programs to the neediest is a nation approaching spiritual death.” - Rev. MLK
Establishment of Israel
"On the day of the termination of the British mandate and on the strength of the United Nations General Assembly declare The State of Israel will be based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel: it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion it will guarantee freedom of religion [and] conscience and will be faithful to the Charter of the United Nations." - May 14, 1948. The Declaration of the Establishment of Israel
