War Resisters League 2009 calendar: The Path of Most Resistence

Every year the WRL calendar is my favorite. You'll love it too.

The Path of Most Resistance:
A U.S. Radical History Tour

War Resisters League 2009 Peace Calendar

Edited by Judith Mahoney Pasternak
Foreword by Charles E. Cobb Jr., author of On the Road to Freedom: A Guided Tour of the Civil Rights Trail
Cover price: $14.95 + s&h

A desk calendar and state-by-state account of the places where radical history happened, from the civil rights and anti-racist struggles of Alabama and Mississippi to centuries of war tax resistance in Massachusetts, indigenous opposition to oil-drilling in Alaska, and union organizing in Kentucky and California.

Our radical history is everywhere, and The Path of Most Resistance pinpoints 50-plus episodes from it, with exact locations of places where people resisted, along with historic and contemporary photos and graphics of acts of resistance, history-makers and more. Includes directories of U.S. peace and justice organizations and publications, and international contacts.

Hold on to some watchwords for today: freedom, justice and peace. … In especially vivid ways the pages of this calendar help us gain a sense of direction by taking us to some of the … battlefields for these ideas. [It] proves that it is possible to resist war and the causes of war—that great power lodged in weapons or ruthless political ambition [can’t] crush either the belief that something better is possible or the struggle to create something better; and that's a reminder …that we need.
From the Foreword by Charles E. Cobb Jr.
