I most often feel like I am cutting ice. However, when it comes to trying to give my meager influence in the prevention of the destruction of humanity, I am most focused on the environment and on the class struggle in unison. That being said, I acknowledge the contemporary needs in this terrible economic environment to prioritize the needs for jobs. And I would also suggest that the environmental movement and the labor movement will gain nothing without cross-issue solidarity. That being said, I must continue my stance in opposition to the Gateway Pacific Terminal at Cherry Point. I believe (perhaps unfortunately) that labor is being deceived in regards to the bigger picture in our joined struggle against what I believe to be contemporary fascism.
