Hello everyone, and Happy New Year!
For most people, the last several weeks probably involved holiday gatherings with friends and family. Locally, we saw little, if any, direct action.
But over that time, more and more news about the corrupt politics of the Bush administration continued to pour in, and the news about the Iraq war has only gotten worse. Many frustrated people emailed me in December to say that they could hardly wait for the next anti-war rally, and now we have one planned:
On Saturday, January 14th, from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm, we'll hold a major anti-war/anti-Bush rally at 16th & Broadway, in Sacramento (rain or shine)!
If you're fed up with Bush's arrogance and want to express your views, you won't want to miss it. If the weather cooperates, we expect a huge turnout. Not only have anti-war and civil rights folks gotten more frustrated with the Bush administration's flagrant disregard for human rights and the U.S. Constitution, but there are also significant issues pending before Congress that warrant public expression via direct action. There are many issues about which to speak and to protest.
But we also need to be heard! To that end, in addition to issuing press releases about our rally, we'll also promote the event in advance more than we have in the past. If we show up in large numbers, that will increase the likelihood that the media will cover our event and that they'll give it more coverage time. The media has been there every time, but there's always more coverage when we have more people. So please help to spread the word.
Also, please bring your compelling anti-war displays. Let's build upon the activities that we've had out there before, such as when the Capoeira Arts Academy Performing Group came and performed live percussion, dance and theater acts in the context of a peace demonstration. To draw public attention to our dissatisfaction with the status quo, our anti-war expressions must be dynamic!
Therefore, so that we can show strength in numbers, please forward this to others, and bring your friends, banners, signs, art, instruments, etc., to 16th & Broadway on Saturday, January 14th, from 3:30pm to 5:30pm.
Thank you. We look forward to seeing you!
