Although we are all individuals with our own slant on things, there are important things we can all agree upon. At our first meeting we decided we will have no leader. We will rotate who conducts, records our meetings. Each time we meet we will pass a stone or feather around and each person will have a chance to speak. This web site, the main web site, http://northwoodspeaceandustice.org is where we will publish things we all agree on so it will express a group consensus and announcement space for projects we work on as a group. Each member will also have their own site so they can champion their own causes where we do not necessarily have to agree with the individual member’s opinion. We will publish a mission statement, a vision and our core values as our group grows and progresses. We agree we are against war and war profiteering. We are against the proposed mines and mining expansion being done to benefit a few wealthy greedy people at the expense of local people’s quality of life and the environment as a whole. We agree that corporations and money should not own our political system. Eventually, membership will be open to all as we organize and establish purpose and goals for our Northwoods Peace and Justice Organization.
