Sometimes it’s cool not to have editorial filters. Today on Seattle Indymedia, somebody started this thread declaring that:
“Those of us in Cascadia advocating secession (I must include myself here, sadly) are fond of talking and short on action. The revolution (even a peaceful one) will not happen without action. It is time to meet each other face-to-face, to start organizing neighbourhoods, to build an alliance of substance. I am proposing an All-Cascadia Conference in early 2004, prior to the conventions of the U.S. national parties.”
The entire post, and the comments that follow, are an interesting microcosm of the attractions and difficulties of bioregional identity.
