MLK's words

I got this today and thought to share it with you. MLK's words on a flash that invites people to join the protest in response to Bush's inauguration. One interesting point I found is the way people constantly appropriate other's words and give them new meanings. In the vigil on Sunday, the Zionist organizers of the event had produced brochures that had a quote from MLK on the front page: "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice anywhere." Who would argue with that? But the question becomes whose "justice?" They had named their event the "Rally against Global Terrorism." And again, who defines what terrorism is?
In any case, for the purposes of the protest against Bush's selection, I am posting this flash. If you're close to Washington, you may want to attend. I am for sure joining the protest in San Francisco.
