REMEMBER AND RESIST


A call to action for mass civil resistance at the White House on Monday, Sept. 26, 2005.

Mourn the Dead.
Resist Bush's War.
Bring U.S. troops home, now!

Be part of an historic mass nonviolent action to end the war in Iraq.

For the last two and half years the U.S. war and occupation of Iraq has brought immeasurable death and destruction. This is a war that never should have happened, a war based on lies and greed. It is time to end it and bring our troops home, now.

United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ) invites you to participate in a mass civil resistance action at the White House on Monday, September 26, 2005. As part of three days of public protest against the war in Iraq, this action will provide a dramatic opportunity to more directly express your opposition to the war makers.

Building on many traditions of nonviolent action and civil resistance, the protest at the White House will bring together people from different communities and constituencies. For some people this will be the first time they have risked arrest, for others this will be something they have done before. But for all who participate, the action at the White House will be a vehicle to communicate our deeply held convictions that this war must end now.

Our action on September 26th will remember and mour n the precious Iraqi and U.S. lives lost in this war while forcefully resisting the Bush White House that is responsible for the carnage and suffering. And while we will be at Bush's front door others will be on Capitol Hill as part of a day of grassroots lobbying, pointing out the ways Congress has been a partner in the war-making and that our representatives must now must do their part to end this illegal, immoral war.

We will take our grief and outrage directly to the President, demanding that he hear our message - Bring the Troops Home Now, no more death and destruction. We will begin by solemnly encircling the White House to the intonement of bells and then move in waves to the White House gates to deliver our message. We will not leave until our message is heard!

The nonviolent civil resistance actions being organized by United for Peace and Justice will be fo cused on the White House. We welcome the creative ideas of affinity groups from around the nation that will help make this the strongest statement possible. And we encourage you to help us bring large numbers of people to participate in this important protest.

Note: Those who are participating in the lobbying effort that day will still be able to take part in this Action, if the lobbying is done in the morning. For a more detailed account of the Action, including the timeframe, send an email to juneeisley@earthlink.net

I wish I could actually get to the civil resistance action, because it is defenitely my cup of tea, but I live in Maine, have $2.00 and a half tank of gas. Sadness.

Go hang a sign on the freeway. www.Freewayblogger.com

I thought I was the only American who is broke by the end of each month! I live? on Social Security Disability Income of $623.00 per month (not a typo) and have NO CAR and A PLASTIC BAG WITH SOME PENNIES IN IT. Fewer than fifty, I daresay. If you find a way to go, email me. My computer was paid for a year ago and I pay my electric bill and ISP the first part of the month when I get my check. I'm not looking for you to come pick me up - I live in Idaho. But maybe you can give me some ideas for the next march. There WILL be one. Unless we can get a change of Administration RIGHT NOW.

I will gladly go...but one question, are we gonna be arrested...?

I do have a class on Tuesday.

Civil Disobedience implies that you will not, cannot worry about the consequences. And as there is always a risk of being arrested, if you have any doubts, you should not attend. And that is OK, because you also have a commitment to your education, and we sure need educated people. So I offer this because you posed the question, not as judgement. Just do what your conscience tells you.

YOU DON'T NEED AN EDUCATION TO SEE THE LIES, AND TO STAND UP FOR WHATS RIGHT. HAVE YOU NOT HERD ABOUT THE GOLDEN RULE, I THINK WE WERE TAUGHT THAT IN GRADE SCHOOL! SO MUCH FOR EDUCATION,ALL THE LIERS IN WASHINGTON ARE EDUCATED! WOW!

THATS THE PROBLEM WITH MOST AMERICANS, YOU SAY THAT YOU BELIEVE, BUT IN REALLITY YOU ARE JUST WORRIED ABOUT CLASS. YOU ARE A JOKE!

Robert George,

What has you so troubled? Seriously, I am asking out of genuine concern. There is so much trouble going around, and so much to be pissed about. I've seen the two postings you put here, and you are angry. So am I. What are we going to do about it? I scream at my television because of the stupidity it spews, yet I cannot avert my eyes. And there are only a few alternatives to the Big Media Corps.

The woman you insulted, I responded to her also. But I told her that if she has any doubt, don't go. And that is OK too, because being educated is important, and you cannot attend your courses from jail. There will be plenty of people getting arrested. I would be one, except I am too poor to travel across the continent.

I hope you find some answers to your questions and concerns.

I'm another disabled American living on Social Security. The previous writer is a bit wealthier than me. My monthly disability payment is a whopping $579, money I deserve from a lifetime of paying into SS. And I can tell you it was pure hell trying to get the government to cough up even that amount. However, not to leave the wrong impression, I am very grateful for what I have. Without that money, I would be totally destitute. So at least we still have a bit of a safety net. I've learned to live way below the poverty line with some amount of grace, especially compared to the majority of people on this planet who consider my income a fortune. But I can say that I have gotten everything in my life designed around that $579 to the penny. So I didn't have any extra money to go to Washington, DC. But I was there in spirit. I was so pleased to watch the throngs of true patriots, unabashed, unafraid of Bush. Speaking openly, speaking truthfully.

This morning I turned on Cspan to check out the Pro War rally, and when the camera pulled back for a wide shot, I was glad to see only a smattering of people there to support the illegal war. And to really show the contrast of where people’s hearts are at, all you have to do is compare Cindy Sheehan's speech, and the others, with Cindy's counterpart in the Pro War movement. She barely got two sentences out of her mouth before she had to start bad mouthing Cindy by saying that her problem must be genetic. Actually, she may not be too far off the mark. I have read several recent studies that seem to indicate that there actually is a Conservative Gene. Forgive me, but I cannot resist the opportunity to identify it as recessive DNA. Seriously though, there is something at the organic level that keeps the far right thinking process from seeing reality. They will say that my reality is wrong, but I don't see the majority of progressives telling lies with every other statement. Bush IS a liar, and the fact that his supporters cannot see that, or believe it, demonstrates something that is definitely wrong. That's all. Time to move forward, and leave that kind of thinking in the past where it will fade into mere bad memories. The future is for those who believe in it.

ALL YOU ANONYMOUS WRITERS, GROW SOME BALLS AND TELL EVERYBODY WHO YOU ARE,OR STOP SUBMITTING BLOGGS!

I see no reason for your angry outburst, Robert George. Consider this: when you go to the reply screen, the word "anonymous" is filled in for the name field. My first posting here was listed as anonymous because of the pre-filled name field, and I think several people have made the same error, not realizing that they could just type over "anonymous". I got it right on my second post, but a little lattitude dude. We have many important issues going on and lashing out at one another, for any reason, doesn't help. We have to be better than our oppressors on the right, but if you need to be pissed off about anonymity, go for it. I'm just saying what I thnk. And you should too.

I always sign my postings, but on the other hand, if someone wants to remain anonymous, that is their right. And considering the surveillance culture that the Bush administration has created, and considering the fear that the media propagates, I find it completely understandable when people wish to remain unknown in face of the fascist state. Personally, I could care less if they know what I say. Until Chief Injustice Roberts manages to repeal the Constitution, I am going to operate on the assumption that I have the right of free speech, which includes remaining anonymous if one chooses. OK?

By the way, check out... http://www.madnessofkinggeorgew.com/Madness%20Home.html
That site has a document that says it all, and its fun to read.

Peace to you, and to all!
