Common Dreams Highlights Thursday, 30 October 2014

I love the good news in this edition of Common Dreams! When people band together to oppose abuses, and wrongs-we DO make a difference and these things can and do change. Nice seeing palpable reminders of this on this final day of the old year (by Old European standards since today is Samhain, the three days out of time that end one year and begin the new).
