FYI: Google Alert - Latinos + Comment

Greetings Gente/People! It is a Sunday morning here in Sacramento
and my day off from regular work. There are many forms of work
and much of the good work that needs to be done is done on a kind
of volunteer basis because we believe in who we are and what we are
doing to help raise revolutionary consciousness.

These days when I am online I mainly use Twitter, Facebook and will
post comments on different popular news sites. Plus, from a distance
I help moderate some Yahoo Groups and manage some blogs. All this
online activity is very time consuming.

Internet Power is a great way of leveling the playing field to help combat
the gatekeepers of corporate-dominated mass media that goes out to the
masses. Progressive liberation movements ~not necessarily aligned to any
one rigid ideology~ must learn how to wisely utilize social media.

For example, I can post a Yahoo Email, such as this one, and also cross-post
to related blogs to gain more exposure. Use the intelligence of your imagination
and do what you can do reach out to more people online and offline in your
local community.

We can operate in three spheres of connected reality: cosmic consciousness,
global news and local activism. In all our ways let us be mindful of the urgent
need to help meet the people's basic survival needs. No survival, no life.

I have found that with simple Google Alerts we can be aware of what is up
online on a variety of subjects with creative imagination. I pray that when
people are given basic information, relevant news and practical knowledge
we can raise a new humane consciousness. At the same time we must be
aware and mindful, not clog our minds with useless information overload.
Life is meant to be lived with enlightened energy and compassionate action
performed to help others, not wasted in useless trifles. Recall: people are
dying now in fruitless violent wars who could be saved if we all act together
as one humane family.

Unidos Venceremos! United We Will Win!

make violent revolution inevitable."
