Sacramento host to ‘Counter Coronation' protest
Thursday against Bush presidency & policies;
Joins scores of other events across U.S.
Sacramentans are expected to participate in a "Counter Coronation" Thursday
– one of scores of protests scheduled across the U.S. – in opposition to
the illegitimate presidency of George W. Bush, the Iraq War and attacks on
civil rights and the environment here at home.
Demonstrators will gather Thursday, January 20, 2005 at 3:30 p.m. at Cesar
Chavez Park (10th & J St.), followed by a processional to Federal Building
@ 5th & I St.
"The Counter Coronation event is sponsored by the Anti-War Working Group
and is an opportunity for like minded people to gather and voice their
disapproval for the policies of the Bush Administration," said Karen Smith,
a spokesperson with the AWWG.
"We will bury the lies of this administration about the honesty of
elections, Social Security, American soldiers, Civil Rights and many more
issues. We are in one of the darkest periods of this nations history. In
the words of Martin Luther King Jr.: ‘Only when it is dark enough, can you
see the stars,' " she added.
"People are upset about George W. Bush seizing the presidency in a rigged
election, and people are upset about the repressive and regressive policies
that the next four years might bring," said
Michael Stavros, another coalition spokesperson.
