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."

Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights; that, among these, are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; and, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it. -July 4, 1776. The Declaration of Independence

August 16, 2010: Kansas City Peace Activists Commit to Civil Resistance Against Nukes
August 16, 2010: Kansas City Peace Activists Commit to Civil Resistance Against Nukes  UPDATE @ 11 PM EST Leads

On the morning of August 16th, 14 nonviolent activists were arrested while demonstrating at the site of a future nuclear weapons production plant in Kansas City, Missouri.

Over
100 citizens of all ages and shades of diversity, gathered to protest continued production of U.S. nuclear weapons, to demand a clean up of the old facility and they exposed another collaboration of corporations and politicians who collude to tax and abuse we the people, who have it in our RIGHT, whenever any form of government becomes destructive or denies our RIGHTS; it is our RIGHT, to alter or to abolish that government.
 
 
Ex-Catholic priest, Frank Cordaro of the Phil Berrigan Catholic Worker House in DM IA, spoke regarding why he and others willingly get arrested, “It’s an honor to be here and get busted! We risk arrest to awaken people from a kind of psychic numbing about the plant. We stand for an alternative to the war economy; we try to temper the U.S. death wish as an empire. Catholic Workers see people hungry; we feed them. We see violence perpetrated by governments; we resist. It’s just that simple.”

"If enough Christians followed the gospel, they could bring any state to its knees."- Philip Francis Berrigan

Peace Activists from KC and Many States to Commit Civil Resistance

at 10 a.m. Aug. 16

at KC Site for New Nuclear Weapons Production Plant

 

“No new nuke plant! Clean up the current plant!” say peace activists from 12 states and local Kansas Citians who will join in or support civil resistance at 10 a.m. Monday, Aug. 16, at Mo. Hwy. 150 and Botts Road. Caterpillars and backhoes are being used to clear the ground and prepare it for building the new Kansas City Plant there, replacing the current contaminated plant at Bannister Federal Complex. The KC Plant makes or procures non-nuclear components for the nation’s nukes, including firing systems, guidance systems and reservoirs for tritium.

 

These groups are sending representatives to the civil resistance: the three main sponsors, PeaceWorks-KC, Physicians for Social Responsibility-KC, and East Meets West of Troost; as well as Alliant Action of Missouri; Cherith Brook Catholic Worker of Kansas City; Dallas Peace Center; Des Moines Catholic Worker; Holy Family Catholic Worker of Kansas City; Iraq Veterans Against the War of Manhattan, Kan.; Just Peace (Dallas); Native American Solidarity Group of Columbia, Mo.; Nuclear Resister of Tucson, Ariz.; NukeWatch, New Mexico; Oak Ridge (Tenn.) Environmental Peace Alliance; Peace Economy Project of St. Louis; St. Francis Catholic Worker of Columbia, Mo.; Strangers and Guests Catholic Worker from Maloy, Iowa; St. Louis Catholic Worker; Tulsa Peace Fellowship; We Are Wide Awake of Clermont, Fla.; and other groups.

 

The resisters will deliver this statement to workers and officials at the site for the new KC Plant.

 

 

Statement of Resistance to Nuclear Weapons Production in Kansas City, Mo., Aug. 16

 

We are gathered here today, Aug. 16, 2010, at the site of a future nuclear weapons production plant in Kansas City, Missouri, to protest continued production of U.S. nuclear weapons.


We also denounce the existence of the current Kansas City facility, where 85% of the non-nuclear components for the U.S. nuclear arsenal are produced, and demand its closure and clean-up.

 

The current plant and the future plant threaten the health and well-being of workers, our environment and the Kansas City community. The new plant is the recipient of illegal funding by the city government through the explicit misdirection of funds intended for the improvement of urban blight.

 

Current law requires an end to all planning, preparation, production, threat, or use of nuclear weapons and adherence to the fundamental rules and principles of humanitarian law. Building the first new U.S. nuclear weapons production facility in 32 years is in obvious violation of these laws.

 

The cardinal rules and principles of humanitarian law require that civilians never be the object of attack and prohibit weapons that are incapable of distinguishing between civilians and military targets.

 

The International Court of Justice found that the destructive power of nuclear weapons cannot be contained in either space or time, and nuclear weapons have the potential to destroy all civilization and the entire ecosystem of the planet.

 

The intended use of the new Kansas City Plant is to improve and extend the life of nuclear weapons. Any complicity in planning, preparation, threatening to use or use of these weapons is a crime against peace, a war crime and a crime against humanity.

 

Under principles of democracy we exercise the right of every citizen of this republic and this planet to peacefully resist the nuclear threat that attacks every core concept of human rights.

 

We act to exercise our basic rights to life and freedom from violence and we exercise our duty to protect children and future generations.

 

We act to ensure that our government fulfills its promise and responsibilities to unequivocally pursue and achieve nuclear disarmament in good faith.

 

We call on national, state and local Kansas City government to end the use of our tax dollars to wage permanent war and demand clean-up of all chemical and radioactive contamination.

The Declaration of Independence from Nuclear Weapons at Y-12


        The Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 indicted a government that engaged in barbaric conduct contrary to the laws of Humanity that included "works of death, destruction and tyranny unparalleled in the most barbaric ages" until the Age of Now!


        Current Law requires an end to all planning, preparation, production, threat, or use of nuclear weapons and we the people have gathered here today, July 4, 2010 at Y-12 to demand this Government adhere to the fundamental rules and principles of Humanitarian Law.


        These rules and principles require that civilians never be the object of attack. Consequently we must never use weapons that are incapable of distinguishing between civilians and military targets.


        Whereas, all W-76 and W-76-1 thermonuclear secondaries produced at Y-12 are designed and produced to unleash 100 KT of uncontrollable and indiscriminate heat, blast and radiation, six times more than the Hiroshima Bomb,


       Whereas, the International Court of Justice found that the destructive power of nuclear weapons cannot be contained in either space or time, and that the potential to destroy all civilization and the entire ecosystem of the planet,

       Whereas, citizens have both rights and duties we the people of conscience must ensure future generations their right to life,

        Whereas, under the principals of democracy we the people of conscience demand this government to fulfill its promise and responsibilities to pursue and achieve nuclear disarmament,


       We the people of conscience therefore exercise the right of every citizen of this republic and this planet to peacefully resist the nuclear threat; attacking as it does every core concept of human rights.


        Whereas it is a basic human right to be free of threat or violence, and it is our duty to protect children and future generations we call on this government to use our tax dollars that are now being used to wage permanent war unequivocally demand they be used to pursue a nuclear free world and clean up all chemical and radioactive contamination.

"HOPE has two children.The first is ANGER at the way things are. The second is COURAGE to DO SOMETHING about it."-St. Augustine

 "He who is not angry when there is just cause for anger is immoral. Why? Because anger looks to the good of justice. And if you can live amid injustice without anger, you are immoral as well as unjust." - Aquinas

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
