Title: Protest Obama's fundraising visit: 1055 Forest Ave., Palo Alto
START DATE: Thursday June 06
TIME: 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM
Location Details:
1055 Forest Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94301
Event Type: Protest
Obama is coming to Palo Alto at 5pm on Thursday, June 6 for yet another fundraiser, seeking money from and selling himself out to the .001%.

The fundraiser will be at this address:

1055 Forest Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94301

This notice is not a listing for an organized protest but rather a clarion call for anyone and everyone to come make their voices heard.

Upset about the White House targeting and harassing journalists, as has recently been proven?
Upset about endless lies and deceptions concerning wars, drones attacks, incessant military interventionism?
Upset about giving only lip service to LGBT rights?
Upset about the precedent of using the IRS to target political opponents? (Who's next?)
Upset about climate change?

Time to speak up! Whether you are just an individual, or part of a group, large or small, come and make a difference.

There is already a Keystone XL protest scheduled (see http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2013/06/05/18738008.php?show_comments=1#18738009 for details), but the protests should not be limited to just one issue.

Please forward this info to any groups with the organizational infrastructure to get a protest together quickly (such as WCW, Code Pink, OWS, ANSWER, etc. etc.), so they can put together their own events ASAP.

The fundraiser is at the home of Michael McCue and Marci McCue, billionaire big-money donors.

Confirmation that the fundraiser will be at the McCue home at 5pm on Thursday, June 6:

Obviously all the streets around that address will be blocked off (as always happens at these fundraisers), so people should meet up at the closest point along the security perimeter where the millionaires' cars will be let through. This is likely to be not at Middlefield and University (where the Keystone XL protest was originally set to convene) but four blocks further up the street at Hale Street and University Ave.; possibly people will be allowed down Hale to Hamilton and Boyce, even closer. Just start heading toward 1055 Forest from University Ave. (Palo Alto's main drag, just a couple blocks away) and go as far as they will let us, and congregate there.

The Powers That Be have tried to keep the location of this fundraiser secret to avoid protests. The people need to have their voices heard!
