"Quaker group defends acts of dissent by Mary Ellen McNish and Paul Lacey
T hursday, March 21, 2002 - How does a Quaker organization that has been working for peace, justice and empowerment of the disenfranchised all around the world for 85 years respond when a police department labels it a "criminal extremist organization?"
At first, it is tempting to celebrate the good company in which we find ourselves (Amnesty International, for example). But the matter is too serious for humor.
T he American Friends Service Committee was founded in 1917 to provide opportunities for Quaker and other youth to make a witness against World War I by engaging in relief and reconstruction work with victims on both sides. Rufus Jones, one of the great American spiritual leaders of the 20th century and longtime chair of the AFSC board, called this "a service of love in wartime."
Certainly there have been occasions when Quakers and others have challenged unjust laws in the only way that the American judicial system allows: by breaking the law and being taken to court.

Red Squad Hits Denver
In Chicago and Los Angeles and other big cities in the 1960s, police departments had Red Squads that were notorious for spying on leftwing political activists.
Some of these departments eventually had to pay thousands of dollars to the activists, who successfully sued on the grounds that their rights were violated.
Well, it looks like a Red Squad is alive and well and snooping in Denver.
The mayor of Denver, Wellington E. Webb, acknowledged on March 13 that the police have "3,200 files on individuals and about 208 records on organizations." These files "have largely been collected in the last three years," he said.
Among the individuals is a Franciscan nun, and the organizations include the American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker group that won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1947, but which the Denver police calls "criminal extremist."
"Our actions are not 'criminal extremism,' but rather in the best tradition of nonviolence and the civic participation that true democracy requiresactions all protected by the Constitution," said the Colorado office of the American Friends Service Committee.

Press Advisory Thank You! The March 14th-15th Walk for a new Spring march in Worcester was a success with over 40 in attendance at the Friends Meeting House evening dialogue. We'd like to thank all those who supported the day's events or attended them. As you know the walkers are headed for Boston and they still need our support... Walk for a New Spring ends in Boston on the first day of Spring, Wednesday March 20th. At that time the marchers will present their petition to members of Senators Kennedy's and Kerry's staff and hope to be met by other government representatives on the steps of the Sate House. The following calls to action are made of you:
  • Meet them at the state house or join them in the final leg of their march from Cambridge to Boston.
  • Bring a flower Bring a sign with the name of your community or organization written large on it and any other Peace message or image you'd like. Colorful is good. Call you State Representatives and Senators and ask if they would meet the Walk at the State House at noon. Do this whether you can be there or not.

    Nobel Peace Prize Nominations Flood Oslo
    Friday, 31-Jan-2003 1:00PM PST Story from AP / DOUG MELLGREN, Associated Press Writer
    OSLO, Norway (AP) Former Illinois Gov. George Ryan, who emptied the state's death row because he found the imposition of capital punishment unfair, is among those nominated for the 2003 Nobel Peace Prize. Clari News The nominating deadline entries had to be postmarked Friday brought a flood of last-minute names to the committee charged with selecting the winner of the prestigious award. It is presented on Dec. 10, the anniversary of Swedish creator Alfred Nobel's death in 1896. The winner, announced in mid-October, takes home approximately $1 million. "There is a lot of mail and many new proposals, but beyond that we have nothing to say," Geir Lundestad, the secretary of the secretive five-member awards committee, told The Associated Press on Friday. The prizes in physiology or medicine, literature, physics, chemistry and economics are awarded in the Swedish capital, Stockholm, while the peace prize is awarded in Oslo. The Peace Prize committee keeps the list of candidates secret for 50 years, only releasing the number of nominations it receives. Last year, when former President Carter won the prize, 156 nominations were submitted.
