Obama’s Support for DC Statehood Could Energize the Movement, Stand Up! for Democracy in DC Coalition (Free DC) Says      

            The Stand Up! for Democracy in DC Coalition thanks President Obama for answering the organization’s call to make a public statement in support of DC Statehood, and said the President’s support could help energize the movement to make DC the 51st US state.

            During a town-hall meeting yesterday at DC’s Walker Jones Education Campus, President Obama, when asked about his views on Statehood, said, “There’s been a long movement to get DC statehood, and I’ve been for it for quite some time…I think it’s absolutely the right thing to do.”

D.C. supporters of marijuana took a hard punch after House Republicans flexed their muscle against outnumbered Democrats looking to legalize the drug.

Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) vowed to continue the fight to protect D.C.'s home rule after the House Appropriations Committee approved an amendment blocking the District from decriminalizing marijuana.

Movement empowered, struggling again, 
Wakening non-obvious paths, to say when. 

Planned patterns cyclical and methodical,
Macro paths leading to where, last saw you,
Again, and again.
 
Love what I see woman, movements from within.
