Seeing Red, Feeling Blue in Purple America
Highlights from the Latest YES!

The movement for universal single-payer health care is growing. Now both doctors and small business owners are lobbying for health care reform.

Web Special: The Summer of 2008 Belongs to Climate Camps
One of seven Climate Convergences this summer, the UK Climate Camp brought together over 1,500 people from all walks of life, to rally against climate change in a demonstration of collective, sustainable living and creative direct action.
The Climate Camp is a model of participatory, collective organization and sustainable, low-carbon alternatives. And the camp was fun for the whole family—a great place for a summer holiday with the kids.
