Ray McGovern & Cindy Sheehan to lead March on the White House
09 May 2006
World Can’t Wait just announced their next major protest- October. Anyone else think that’s a little funny?

Last year the Downing Street Memo came out on May 1st, soon after UFPJ announced the big rally for Sept 24th. Why do they always skip over the summer months? Because that’s when the weather is nice, and people might actually have the time to camp and stay.

The crooks in power don’t care if we schedule another weekend protest- the one thing they don’t want is an extended protest like the Ukranians had. Several weeks of peaceful demonstration led to their President stepping down. That’s what we need.

We sure as hell don’t need this pathetic Congress to investigate anything else- at this point asking for another committee is just plain insanity.

Let’s think about this- do George Bush and Dick Cheney and the complicit fools in Congress want 500,000 Americans camping out on their front porch? No. So why are we appeasing them? They don’t want us camping on the Capitol mall- so we should do just that.

Thursday May, 18th Cindy Sheehan and Ray McGovern (mp3) are meeting at Lafayette park near the White House, then Marching to Rumsfeld’s personal residence. Wouldn’t it be great if someone brought a video cameda, and it’s thousands of people standing outside Rummy’s house, singing along to #3 from Neil Young’s new album, “Don’t Need- No More Lies!” In fact that ought to be on repeat over at the big protest camp going up on the DC Capitol Mall- with the speakers turned to Congress and cranked to 11.

March on the Capitol,
Stay Until the Nightmare is Over.

The DC Capitol Mall was created as a place for citizens to gather and protest their grievances to the government- that is it’s purpose.

Isn’t it time to use that space for an extended protest?

If not now when?

Cindy would have protested D-Day.
Congress Is Pathetic! All Of Them!

Think the Media will televise this march? I hope thousands of cameras are there.
As for your anti Sheehan people? Who are you? Police sitting on your asses? Probably. Sheehan has done more for sending the truth out, than you could ever do.
I can only hope, that these "PATHETIC", so called, Congressmen and Women, will speak out about the CRIMINALS in the White House.
Time to stop this police state, Now!
Hi. My Name is Cindy. I am an Expert.

Sheehan discovered during a midlife crisis that war is bad. Oh my. Life is Complicated. So Patriotism is Bad, According to Cindy. Fortunately she has new friends at Workers World to educate her. Her life now has Meaning.

Cindy has NOT done that much for any movement. She had some credible thoughts nad ideas but quickly lost that. Now she is just seen as a misguided woman who needs quite a bit of professional assistance so that she can function on the same playing field as the rest of us. It is a tragedy that she lost her hero son but the way she has behaved has just been wrong.
"several weeks of peaceful protest"?
12 May 2006
you do realize the ukrainian "opposition" was financed by the cia, right?
but go ahead... peacefully protest for a few weeks... the american empire will crumble!!! i guarantee it!
