Group Health members needed for action NOW Last Updated on 2014-07-23 15:21:44 In Spokane Group Health Cooperative and Providence Health Care have just announced a jointly-owned entity with a new name calling itself CareUnity. Our concern is that health care in Spokane will be provided not by best practices, but by Catholic doctrine. This merger concerns all of us who are GHC members because all medical staff, as a condition of employment at Providence must commit to the Ethical and Religious Directives of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (ERD). Those Directives restrict reproductive, end of life and LGBT care. Will the new entity require GHC practitioners to also follow those ERDs? This is our concern. We urge Unitarians in Spokane to ask that question of their GHC doctors and let us know their response: <kateahunter842@gmail.com> We also urge GHC members to sign the resolution created by Concerned Members of GHC which addresses these issues. If you... More »

Last Updated on 2014-07-22 01:34:46   Wedgwood Meaningful Movies presents PSYWAR: Propaganda for Political, Corporate Control of American Minds, another offering in our monthly showing of documentary films on social and economic justice issues. How did the land of the free and the home of the brave arrive at a place where citizens could be manipulated with such efficiency and on such a massive scale? This film explores corporate and government use of propaganda and public relations to manipulate the public, sun-lighting the $200 billion a year perception-management industry, part of which is devoted to making military solutions acceptable, e.g., the Iraq War. Includes original interviews with a number of dissident scholars including Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Michael Parenti, Peter Phillips (“Project Censored”), John Stauber (“PR Watch”), Christopher Simpson (“The Science of...
