Our peace movement needs maximum visibility and participation to put an end to the Democrat-Republican war machine. How about a demonstration on Saturday, December 7 at Powell and Market, the heart of SF's main shopping mall at noon? TO ALL YOU OBAMA SUPPOTERS: THIS IS THE END OF YOUR DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND OBAMA'S PRESIDENCY. We saw this before with Democrat Lyndon Johnson when he started bombing Vietnam in August 1964, with the false pretext of the Gulf of Tonkin "incident" which the capitalist class, including then war secretary Robert McNamara, had admitted never occurred. By 1968, Johnson announced he would not run again for the presidency. It was in 1968 that Peace & Freedom Party was born, as the Democrats were and still are a failure. Unfortunately, the capitalist class could still through enough crumbs at the workingclass that they could maintain capitalism. That is not the case today. The complete lack of jobs, which Obama PROMISES will be WORSE IN 2010, the destruction of the school system, the complete lack of medical care for the workingclass and much more, combined with escalating war to maximize the profits of the capitalist class, the only reason wars exist, guarantees that the Democratic and Republican Parties must be and will be cast into the dustbin of history. We need a HUGE PEACE MARCH ON DECEMBER 7 AT POWELL AND MARKET.

Yes Yes Yes a weekend protest that is advertised/networked well w/a lil time for people who need to make travel arrangements. Sunday might be good because its generally the freer of the two for most but in any case MASSES are needed in order for Obama to see the support of the people and put a stop to these profit only wars. Those monies are needed elsewhere IE 81% increase in seniors needing help from foodbanks and the like. Our environment is taking a dive as demonstrated in increasing species extinction...homo sapiens are a species, striking increases in homelessness and empty malnourished tummies, health care system hijacked by profiteers, quality education system available only for the rich, Job has left the building! Its no secret at this stage in the game that Iraq is about oil and Afgan is about poppies both of which, aka, lotsa money for a few at the expense of many. I very much believe that if masses came out in droves We the people could reclaim our country and finally put an end to mindless destructive big business.
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
