The parking lot suicides

Veterans are taking their own lives on VA hospital campuses, a desperate form of protest against a system that they feel hasn’t helped them.


Miller was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and suicidal thoughts when he checked into the Minneapolis Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in February 2018. After spending four days in the mental-health unit, Miller walked to his truck in VA’s parking lot and shot himself in the very place he went to find help.

Tell the U.S. Congress and President to Finally Allow Ending the Korean War

The primary impediment to peace in Korea is located thousands of miles from Korea in Washington, D.C. We respectfully demand that it get out of the way.

While U.S. mass media ignores or demonizes the people of North Korea, it is all too easy to forget that there are millions of children, factory workers, and peasants being brutalized by cruel U.S. and U.N. sanctions.

We’re Asking Charlottesville to Divest from Weapons and Fossil Fuels


The primary impediment to peace in Korea is located thousands of miles from Korea in Washington, D.C. We respectfully demand that it get out of the way.

Charlottesville, Virginia, has yet to take down its racist statues (the ones all the fuss has been about or any of the other ones). Charlottesville has yet to ban guns from public events. It blames the state legislature in both of those and many other topics. But the City of Charlottesville has our public dollars invested in weapons, and it is perfectly capable of changing that.

In this case, excuses may prove hard to come by. Charlottesville has divested in the past from Sudan and from South Africa.

Targeted Messaging: Military Recruiters Getting Creative to Reach Gen Z

This should be read by all counter-recruiters in order to understand the approaches that are being used by military branches to overcome the typical concerns people have about enlistment. It's especially important to understand why the scared-straight approach is not sufficient on our part, and why it is ineffective to rely solely on warnings about PTSD, sexual assault, moral injury, low-pay, divorce rates, etc. Military recruiters are trained to neutralize those points with deception and psychological tricks, and if we don't concentrate first on giving young people solid reasons to question the general credibility of recruiters, we will fail in our goal of helping them make educated decisions.
