Bush's Backyard Surprise (english)
07 Jul 2003
A group by the name of "Bush's Backyard Surprise" attended the BP Power of Freedom Independence Day Celebration at Eleanor Tinsley Park in Houston on Friday. Displaying the Bill of Rights with the word: "canceled", the group handed out flyers with critical information about the Patriot Acts. The Patriot Acts severely limit the civil rights of both Citizens and immigrants. This is one of many planned anti-bush actions. (article 4)
Why did we post this in Boston? For two reasons.
The first has to do with a statement by Arundati Roy that, paraphrased, the millions of people around the world who protested the actions of george jr.'s unelected junta on February 15, 2003 are "the other superpower".
Indymedia works very well throughout the globe within cities and regions so perhaps some good can be done when distant communities exchange ideas and plans. The Other Superpower can only benefit from more of this kind of cross-communication.

The second reason is to convey the message that george jr. has no home base. The world should know that people from his own backyard are working to remove him from office. Bush's Backyard Surprise can gain a great deal from what the world has to say. Any ideas?
