If You're Going to Crawford This Weekend...
FOR ALL PRO-PEACE ACTIVISTS/CINDY SUPPORTERS: The goal at Camp Casey has always been peaceful demonstration. Even when pro-Bush people come by and heckle us, we just smile, wave and say, "Thanks for coming! Peace!" We do not want to get involved in shouting matches or any other escalated confrontation. We know that no argument can be made against our work to save American and Iraqi lives. So if ever confronted, just take a deep breath and enjoy being in the right :)
Given the comment made by the President of American Legion at their national meeting of 4000 in Hawaii yesterday, which came as a complete surprise to insiders at highest levels of that organization, according to sources, there may well be a move to try to make the Peace Protest in Crawford this weekend turn violent.
1. The language of violence was a drop-in according sources, meant to coincide with the President speech in Idaho.
2. The buses going down to Crawford are from Melanie Morgan, but funded by whom?
3. The opposition is looking undermine in anyway they can Cindy's moral authority and they were hoping she would not be back.
How to fight this:
Make signs, and here is what the signs should say, white backround, huge blue lettering:
RESPECT OUR TROOPS, (then in red lettering, things like) MEET WITH CINDY.
RESPECT OUR TROOPS, TELL US THE TRUTH
RESPECT OUR TROOPS, EXIT STRATEGY
RESPECT OUR TROOPS, MAKE CLEAR GOALS
RESPECT OUR TROOPS, WHAT'S THE NOBLE CAUSE
It is critical that we take the high ground of being on the side of the troops away from the counter protester. These are mother of fallen soldiers; they have the higher ground already, we just need to make that clear the Cindy way. Keep it simple. Begin everything with RESPECT THE TROOPS
