Cheney In Boston On July 4th
02 Jul 2008
Cheney is coming July 4th
Dick Cheney will be in Boston on July 4th according to to attend a military re-enlistment ceremony on the USS Constitution. It's rather odd that Dick would have anything to do with something that has the word "constitution"connected to it, except trying to destroy it.

The people of Boston should let Cheney know that he is not welcome in OUR city. Does anyone know what time he will be in here? The article on didn't list a time for the ceremony. If anyone wants to demonstrate, Castle Island might be be a good spot. The Constitution usually sails past it every 4th of July if I remember correctly.

Cheney Supposed Schedule
03 Jul 2008
Please send on to your lists!

Meet at the Charleston Naval Yards, 10:30, Pier 1, where the Constitution docks.
(You can see it easily on the maps below.) We should get as close
to the Constitution as they allow us.

directions to Pier 1:

Great time for a demo when people have a vacation day, and great to do something
really appropriate for the Fourth -- and
what could be more appropriate on the 4th than a nice Boston rebellion, to
let Cheney et al know that we don't want to go to war with Iran, we demand
a Stop to Torture, demand that they Close down Guantanamo,
and we don't welcome him to our city.
