To the editor:
Don't give up the fight!
For those of you who are, like me, lifelong humane activists, I would like to say thank you for caring enough to grow democracy to save our nation from the Wall Street Empire. We shall overcome someday.
Bob Marley wrote a song that says, “Get up, stand up for your rights, don’t give up the fight!”
While we democracy activists are maybe 3 million Americans who have not given up the fight, that’s only 1 percent of the people, and we cannot overcome the richest 1 percent who are the ruling elite without more of the 98 percent “silent majority” getting informed and involved. Being a patriot means more than waving the flag on July 4th!
Real democracy involves people in every town getting involved and empowered, and that’s what the NH Community Rights Network advocates for! Residents must act locally to protect their health, safety and welfare, and defend their water, land and air from corporate polluters who are poisoning our children and destroying Mother Earth!

Is there a presidential candidate who will walk the walk and endorse community rights? Our elected “leaders” must work with We the People to oppose harmful corporate activities like the Granite Bridge Pipeline, Northern Pass, dredging of Great Bay and the contamination of our groundwater. If the people lead, the leaders have to follow — don’t give up the fight for democracy!
