Open letter to SF Bay Area progressives:
For vivid illustration of the fracturing of the
Bay Area's progressive community,
look at Saturday, 18 March 2006.

An anti-Bush demo,
marking the 3rd anniversary of his Iraq adventure,
gathers in SF's Civic Center plaza at 11AM.

Meanwhile, in Golden Gate Park,
the 11th annual Anarchist Book Fair runs from
10AM to 6PM.

Because these major events conflict,
nobody can fully participate in both.
At best, you might attend a fragment of each.

ONE of these Saturday events should have been postponed 24 hours,
to Sunday the 19th.
Organizers should have foreseen the conflict,
and should have averted it.
Such cooperation happened in SF a few years ago,
when a Saturday peace march was delayed to Sunday,
thus respecting the annual Chinese New Year parade.

But organizers didn't resolve this current conflict.
Thus both groups demonstrated
disregard for individuals and smaller groups in the progressive community.

This month, the worker's flag is blushing pink.
