Please join us for a major Anti-War rally at 16th & Broadway, in Sacramento, this Saturday, October 15th, from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
As the situation in Iraq worsens, the Bush administration has continued its arrogant, business-as-usual approach. The most powerful means we have to apply pressure on the administration is to peaceably assemble in large numbers and let our objections be heard in public and reported by the media.
There are several reasons why we encourage you to come to this particular rally:
First, this rally will be advertised more widely than our others, so we expect very strong attendance; tacking your attendance upon an already-strong base will help create the kind of powerful and energetic atmosphere that's necessary to draw attention to the issues we raise;
Second, we're running out of good weather and evening daylight, so we need to take advantage of what's left of the season;
Third, we'll start at 5pm instead of 6pm, which will allow more potential media coverage for the 6pm news (and we will send press releases);
Fourth, the timing of this rally will offer a forum to convey your thoughts (with signs and media) about issues on the ballot in November; and
Fifth, this rally will involve many anti-war displays and art, and we've invited some great percussion instrumentalists; so it will be especially fun and exciting.
Please forward this to others, and bring your friends, banners, signs, art, instruments, whatever, to 16th & Broadway, in Sacramento, this Saturday. Let's show strength in numbers, and let's show the media that our numbers are growing and that they'd better start paying attention!
*Note: Please use on-street parking (which is free) instead of Tower Records/Cafe/Theater customer lots.
