Civil Resistance at the White House


Civil Resistance at the White House
By David Swanson

I got to the White House around noon and found hundreds of people gathered awaiting the arrival of marchers who planned to get themselves arrested protesting the war.

I ran into Mike Ferner of Veterans for Peace, who showed me the paperwork from his arrest early this morning at the Pentagon. He said he'd been one of 41 people arrested between 6:30 and nearly 7:30 a.m. at the Pentagon. Three Veterans for Peace members had joined others from the War Resisters League. They'd shut down an entrance and the Pentagon Metro stop. They were swiftly booked and released, charged with "disobeying a lawful order" and given court dates in federal district court in Alexandria in January.

For a while people milled around in the street and the park in front of the White House. Around 12:30 or so, members of Code Pink stretched a giant banner out along Pennslvania Avenue, reading "Mothers Say No to War." As they did so, the media swarmed and filmed every movement. Code Pink members sang a number of songs, including "The Day the Music Died," but with lyrics something like this:
Bye bye, Mr. President, bye
You didn't fix the levee
Now the water's too high
You started a war based on a lie
You don't care if poor people die…

Another went:
We are Code Pink and we are proud
We are sisters and we are loud
We are many and we'll be more
And we'll end this bloody war

A SWAT team truck was parked on one side of the park. Large numbers of police were lined up in front of the White House fence. Guards inside the fence on the White House grounds carried large sticks, and one led a dog on a long leash.

When the group of civil resisters arrived, organized by United for Peace and Justice, they gathered in one side of the park to prepare. Representatives of military families and veterans groups, and of Clergy and Laity Concerned made brief remarks. Bill Mitchell spoke, who lost his son in Iraq. There was a brief reading from the Koran, some remarks in Hebrew by a Rabbi, and a Christian minister who said "When we go over there, remember that that's not the power. They have the violence, but we have the power. Who do they represent? We represent 60 percent of the country."

An organizer advised people to participate only if they were ready to risk arrest and trained in nonviolence. A woman in the crowd next to me asked another "Will you risk arrest?" "Yes." "Good, we'll be together."

Around 1 p.m. a delegation of leaders walked to the gate of the White House to request a meeting with Bush. Cindy Sheehan, Cornel West, and Rev. Sekou were among the leaders, with Sekou shouting at the media to get out of the way. A wall of TV cameras walking backwards slowed the walk and blocked it for a while from reaching the White House.

A crowd gathered, as the delegation made its fruitless request. There were thousands on hand at this point. The chant was "Liar! Liar! Say it a little louder!"

That and "Media, Step Back!"

The crowd also sang "Give Peace a Chance."

With the delegation at the gate for about 10 minutes, a loud chant of "The Whole World is Watching" caught on.

There was also "Ain't no power like the power of the people, and the power of the people is now!"

At about 1:10, the delegation of potential arrestees moved east along the fence of the White House to the area directly in front of the building. The crowd chanted "Stop the War!" Many more wanting to be arrested moved in behind – clearly there would be hundreds of arrests. Still, the media probably out-numbered the non-media.

At 1:14 Sekou started a chorus of "This Little Light of Mine."

At 1:15, everybody not holding a camera or a gun sat down on the sidewalk.

At 1:16, the police ordered the media to move off the sidewalk and into the street, and warned everyone else they would be arrested.

At 1:18, Code Pink marched in from the east, along the fence, and joined the protest.

By 1:20 there were hundreds of people, some sitting, some standing, most singing, all refusing to leave.

By 1:22 many of the corporate media cameras were gone, and the independent and small media seemed to dominate. But they and onlookers were pushed further out in the street, as the police brought in their horses. The chant from the street then became "Get those animals off those horses!"

By 1:26, the dominant chant was "Arrest Bush." This chant came back again and again over the next 30 minutes. Another was "No more of a class war!"

By 1:30 they moved the horses out and brought in the police vans. But they only had a few teeny little vans. There was no way they could hold everyone.

Chant: "A liar, a coward, say it a little louder!"

One guy with a megaphone shouted "Hey Bushie Boy, we know you’ve got a lot of oil 'cause your boys are leaving the engines running. Did you fight a war for this oil?"

At a quarter to 2 they brought in a Metro bus – faster by far than they'd gotten buses into New Orleans. As the arrests started, the crowd yelled: "The Whole World Is Watching!"

UPDATE AT 6:05 PM ET: Barbara Cummings just phoned me. She was arrested at the White House and says she is on the fourth bus in a line of six. There are about 50 people on each bus, she said, plus several small vans of people. She estimates 300 have been arrested. The police are making them wait in the buses and vans, with plastic handcuffs on. Barbara slipped hers off to use the phone, but hung up when a police officer saw her and headed her way. She predicted he'd put the cuffs on her and jerk them tight.

7 p.m. Note from Cindy Sheehan:
The rumors are true this time. I was arrested in front of the White House today. It was my first time ever being arrested.

We proceeded from Lafayette Park to the Guard House at the White House. I, my sister, and other Gold Star Families for Peace members and some Military Families requested to meet with the President again. We again wanted to know: What is the Noble Cause? Our request was, to our immense shock and surprise, denied. They wouldn't even deliver any letters or pictures of our killed loved ones to the White House.

We all know by now why George won't meet with parents of the soldiers he has killed who disagree with him. First of all, he hates it when people disagree with him. I am not so sure he hates it as much as he is in denial that it even happens. Secondly, he is a coward who arrogantly refuses to meet with the people who pay his salary. Maybe the next time one of us is asked by our bosses to have a performance review, or we are going to be written up for a workplace infraction, we should refuse to go and talk to our bosses citing the fact that the President doesn't have to. The third reason why he won't talk to us is that he knows there is no Noble Cause for the invasion and continued occupation of Iraq. It is a question that has no true answer.

After we were refused a meeting with the Disconnected One, we went over to right in front of our house…the White House (in front of the gate of course) and we sat down and refused to move until George came out and talked to us. We actually had a good time singing old church songs and old protest songs while we waited. I tied a picture of Casey on the White House fence and apparently, that is against the law, too.

After three warnings to get up and move off of the sidewalk in front of our house, we were arrested. It is so ironic to me that the person who resides in our White House swears to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. The person who is the (p)resident of the White House now has no concept of the Constitution. He was appointed by the Supreme Court for his first term, invaded and continues to occupy a sovereign country without a declaration of war from the Congress, and violated several treaties to actually invade, Iraq too. Not to mention the condoned torture that pervades the military prisons these days. These are all violations of the Constitution. The Patriot Act and denying us our rights to peaceably assemble are serious breaches of the Bill of Rights. George is so hypocritically concerned about Iraq developing a Constitution when he ignores and shreds our own Constitution.

Being arrested is not a big deal. Even though were arrested for "demonstrating without a permit" we were protesting something that is much more serious than sitting on a sidewalk: the tragic and needless deaths of tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis and Americans (both in Iraq and here in America) who would be alive if it weren't for the criminals who reside in and work in the White House.

Karl Rove (besides just being a very creepy man) outted a CIA agent and was responsible for endangering many of our covert agents worldwide. Dick Cheney's old company is reaping profits beyond anyone's wildest imaginations in their no-bid contracts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and New Orleans. John Negroponte's activities in South America are very shady and murderous. Rumsfeld and Gonzales are responsible for illegal and immoral authorization, encouragement and approval of torture. Not to mention, violating Geneva Conventions, torture endangers the lives of our service men and women in Iraq. Along with the above mentioned traitors, Condi lied through her teeth in the insane run-up to the invasion. The list of crimes this administration has commited is extensive, abhorrent, and unbelievable. What is so unbelievable is that WE were arrested for exercising our first amendment rights and these people are running free to enjoy their lives of crime and to wreak havoc on the world.

The fine for "demonstrating without a permit" is $75.00. I am certain that I won't pay it. My court date is November 16 th. Any lawyers out there want to help me challenge an unconstitutional law??

How come you didn't get arrested? ;-)

me...i'm busy holding the currency trading .............i suggest you all turn your efforts to the following:

MONEY spent in IRAQ and AFGHANISTAN should be spent on KATRINA and removing the DEFICIT.........that will hit the american people more. WHY? Because it is their purse strings. THIS IS COSTING THE AVERAGE AMERICAN: JOBS, 401k, INFLATION, DEFICIT INTEREST, MORTGAGE RATES TO THE MOON, HIGHER GAS TAX, FOOD COST TO THE MOON, HIT THEM INTHE PURSE STRINGS!

The deficit is a ballon getting ready to BLOW UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Compared to US budget and trade deficits, terrorists are a minor concern. The greatest danger that the US faces is the dollar's loss of reserve currency role. Saddam's movements in that direction, not WMDs or oil per se, were his downfall

There's a good article on the subject at today's Counterpunch

We are so way fu*%#%^& !!! I hope you all like chop suey.

cindy for prez!!

Cindy for Prez!! I'll second that!!!

And hurray to all the brave protesters!!!

Because his name isn't Cindy Sheehan.

the ONLY problem they arrested the wrong one..........IT SHOULD BE "BUSH"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Most Incompetent President EVER!

We should take a serious look at the Strong Arm of the Law

Arvy, David is our eyes and ears today. We know he'll give us the truth and not the MSM B.S. on the arrests.

Yeah, but think of the story he could have given us from inside the cop car and Cindy's jail cell. I'll bet she had a few choice words for the "fuzz" that he could have reported. :-D

Dear Mitzy Kenny of Ridgeley, West Virginia:

Below is a quote from cnn 9/26 that you stated to CNN on 9/26/2005! My answer to you is this: sometime in the future YOU will discover why your husband really died. He died because of wizard of oz curtains with democracry in the fore front. But the real reason is this
Caspian sea
Tabs Pipeline
BTC Pipeline
Currency WAR with Saddam on 11/2000 via euro /dollar
IRAn new oil exchange 3/2006
wake up YOU FOOL!
I'm a mother of a alive special forces soldier at present!
I hope the IRAQ'S blow up every piece of BLACK OIL IN IRAQ along with every export station; every transfer station; every pipeline; every refinery; every oil lead into Turkey so that BUSH gets NO OIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sincerely, the currency trader
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

"I would like to say to Cindy Sheehan and her supporters: Don't be a group of unthinking lemmings," said Mitzy Kenny of Ridgeley, West Virginia, whose husband died in Iraq last year. She said the anti-war demonstrations "can affect the war in a really negative way. It gives the enemy hope."

Cindy Sheehan is the spark that lit the fire of the antiwar movement in this country over the past months. Now, they arrest her and think we will all be afraid and hide. They really do not understand what this is all about, the forces of human nature that are driving the peace movement, and the reaction we will have to this outrageous abuse of power.
I spent Saturday evening standing with fellow citizens opposed to this war, on a bridge in Portland, Oregon. We held candles and flashed peace signs to the cars driving by. Both sides of the bridge were lined with people holding candles. Many cars driving by honked and put two fingers up for peace, a few (maybe 3) displayed only one figure, one shouting that we should get a job...even though it was 8pm on a Saturday night.
Last week, I parked my vehicle , which displays signs on both sides saying "Bush Lied, They Died" and "Impeach Bush", along a road while I biked a trail in Portland, Oregon. When I returned to my car, a note was left on the windshield. It rambled "You lost, get over it and focus on change, not what's already over". This person just didn't get it, there was no complaint on my car about how the election was corrupt or supporting an opposing candidate. I am focused on change, changing the course the Bush administration has put this country on. Impeaching this unlawful, deceitful president and holding congress accountable are the focus of my actions.
These occurences have convinced me that no amount of logic, emotion, reason, or proof will ever convince these war mongerers that they are wrong. If we want change, we are going to have to march on Washington in greater numbers than we had on Saturday and force change. We can sit by and let them ignore us, let them arrest us when we get too uncomfortable for them, or we can take action, and bring about change thru sheer will of the people. This is the United States of America, and now more than ever it is united against the Bush administration. No more words, no more slogans, no more reasoning with them...action and force are all they are capable of understanding.

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

- Thomas Jefferson

I hope if the IRAQ"S read this , they keep blowing up all OIL WELLS: EXPORT STATIONS; OIL PIPELINES; OIL TRANSFER STATIONS; OIL REFINERIES; OIL TRANSFERS via Turkey........that way BUSH GETS NO OIL. Please Keep all your OIL over there in Iraq. I don't want one piece of Black oil in from imports into the USA....I realize according to the IMF site we are getting all your oil imported........that is what the import figures say. So good job Iraq's please blow them up!!!!!!!!!! At present Iraq is our 4th largest importer of OIL!

Last Update: Monday, September 26, 2005. 11:13pm (AEST)
Bomber kills Iraqi oil workers
A suicide bomber has rammed his car into a bus carrying employees of Iraq's oil ministry, killing at least 10 and wounding 30.

It is the deadliest attack on Iraq's energy industry since insurgents began blowing up pipelines and killing oil officials after US-led forces ousted Saddam Hussein in 2003.

It comes as violence between Iraq's three main communities spikes ahead of an October 15 referendum on a controversial new constitution.

"We heard the blast. They died," said a dazed survivor, who stood in a hospital as victims of the blast were wheeled in on stretchers.

He says the bus was carrying employees of a state oil exploration company.

Oil is the main revenue earner for Iraq's battered economy, and energy infrastructure and staff are frequently targeted by insurgents.

"We hope security forces will take control of the situation," Oil Minister Ibrahim Bahr al-Uloum said.

"Unfortunately these terrorist operations continue to target innocents."

Violence has been escalating across Iraq ahead of the vote on a constitution for the post-Saddam era.

Iraq's US-backed Government, dominated by Shiite Muslims and Kurds, is facing an insurgency by minority Sunni Arabs, who dominated Iraq for decades under Saddam but have been sidelined since his overthrow.

Sunnis, who make up about 20 per cent of the population, fear that if the charter is approved it will marginalise them even further by granting broad autonomy to Shiites in line with that already enjoyed by Kurds, including control of oil revenues.

Many have vowed to ensure the constitution is rejected.

A campaign of ethnic and sectarian killings has led to fears Iraq's fragmented communities are sliding towards civil war.

Commandos attacked

On Sunday a suicide bomber in a car attacked an elite Iraqi police unit in Baghdad, killing 13 commandos in the deadliest of a series of attacks.

Iraq's Al Qaeda wing claimed responsibility for the attack, according to an Internet statement on a site used by militants.

"A lion brother of the martyrs' brigade on Sunday launched a heroic attack on a convoy of apostate commandos," it said.

The statement could not immediately be authenticated.

The attack followed clashes overnight between US troops and Shiite militiamen loyal to cleric Moqtada Al Sadr in the eastern Baghdad district of Sadr City.

Police said eight militia fighters were killed and five wounded in the fighting.

Also on Sunday, a suicide bomber killed himself and six others when his motorbike exploded in the mainly Shiite town of Musayyib, south of Baghdad, police said.

Nineteen were wounded.

In nearby Hilla, a bomber on a bicycle blew himself up in a crowded vegetable market, killing four people, including a woman and a child, and wounding 48.

In western Baghdad, gunmen held up an armoured finance ministry convoy, killing two guards and wounding nine before making off with $850,000 in cash.

Last week Iraq's top Shiite cleric, Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, who holds wide influence among the 60 per cent Shiite majority, urged followers to vote "Yes" in the referendum.

At the same time, Sunni religious and political leaders have been urging their community to register to vote - most boycotted elections in January and are therefore not on the electoral register - and to vote "No" on October 15.

If two-thirds of voters in three or more of Iraq's 18 provinces vote "No" then the constitution will be vetoed.

IT'S OBVIOUS YOU ARE A NEO-CON TRYING TO START TROUBLE FOR THE CINDY SHEENAN PROTESTORS.

No I'm NOT! I'm totally against this Voodoo WAR. BUSH lies so much he can't tell the difference between the truth and a lie. He is so INCOMPETENT. Look what has happened around you the last 5 years!This WAR of Afghanistan and IRAQ was ALL based on lies!
CASPIAN SEA; BTC PIPELINE; TAPS PIPELINE; IRAQ CURRENCY WAR started on 11/2000 by Saddam no dollars for OIL only euro's! Iran news oil exchange 3/2006.

And yes I believe the only way OUT of this HOLLY MESS that BUSH HAS MADE is to Wake americans up by their OWN purse strings! $$$$$$$$$$ (JOBS (this # is lies...once you fall out of unemployement ben's you fall off the numbers) , DEFICITS, OIL PRICES, KATRINA, TAX ON GAS; 401K in the TOLIET; QUALITY JOBS LEAVING THE USA - the more this is in the media the more people will want OUT of IRAQ.) NO MONEY FOR IRAQ and the VOODO WAR! At present you can equal this time zone via cycle analysis to 1935!

And 2ndly for all the IRAQ"S to KEEP blowing up their own oil wells; tranfers stations; pipelines; export hubs; leads feeds in Turkey pipelines; SO BUSH GETS NO OIL! NONE! Not one little drop of OIL.

At present we are currently importing all oil the IRAQ makes ....they are our 4th largest IMPORTER of OIL! They the IRAQ PEOPLE can KEEP all their OIL........just bring HOME THE TROOPS!
BEST to you and yours,
the currency trader

Nevertheless, statements like:
"good job Iraq's please blow them up"
are not what this group is about.

If this gets the troops HOME...........that is all I care about!
And yes these are my thoughts. I noted no regulations, nor did i sign any document that stated my beliefs MUST BE IN YOUR GROUP!

Not one more death! If it takes the Iraq's to blow up their own oil venues so be it!

"The good work is being carried out by a multitude of small groups, who are carrying the torch of freedom high and drawing others to them"

Brilliant move on Cindy's part. The MSM would only barely cover the enormous protest march on Saturday. It's a stroke of genius. This way she gets the attention focused back on the protest and maybe now they will have to cover this story.

I absolutely agree BUT I saw only 5 seconds of her arrest on my local 5 o'clock news. Perhaps there will be more in the later news.

I am looking everywhere for some overhead shots of the crowds on Sat in DC CSPAN covered the March Saturday but we couldn’t really get a sense of the size of the crowds. The prowar folks had about 400 !!!! (Suffering from mad cowboy disease)

Our march in San Fran. was at least 50,000. Local press says tens of thousands; gives it about five to ten seconds. CSPAN, CNN etc shows nothing this Monday on all the activities in DC. This is so wrong. As others have stated,the MSM must be called to task for their criminal negligence.

Air America's Big Ed states that o'really has been taken off the air in Denver. Is the beginning of the end for the hate mongers?
They put out such hate and garbage. They must be getting desperate.
We have our own media.

Thank you for the photos of protest at the White House.
The continued links to media outlets are so useful and helpful in getting others to send letters. Thank you for this site. It feels like home. It gives me hope. Citizen G

I was intrigued by the coverage of the protests on CNN this morning. "Thousands" of protesters in DC garnered a brief crowd shot or two, and then the "hundreds" of Bush Sycophants were given air time to complain about the un American activities of the protesters.

FWIW, Seattle had a great turn out, albiet only a few minutes news coverage, and I was proud to hold a sign at our Peace Rally in Aberdeen, WA. The reaction from drivers was markedly different from the last time I attended a Peace Rally there, with honks and thumbs ups and peace signs outnumbering the idiots by at least 25 to 1. The tide's turning, folks. I only wish I could be there in DC to perform my own act of civil disobedience.

We are expressing a voice and it is being heard.Bush had a teleconference with Max Mayfield days before Katrina. He was on vacation and let Brownie the horse whisperer do his non job. What the f has happenend to us people. This is not about republicans and democrats this is about a government that is evil.

is photo below '1:15' time stamp the Scots lady whose son was killed? Holding a red rose?

I did not attend the DC protest but after the MSM did not cover it and continued to lie and distort to protect the FACIST WAR CRIMINAL in the White house I WILL GO to the next one AND the one after that. I will CONTINUE going until Bush is Impeached and behind bars.

2006 vote OUT anyone who does not oppose the war and DEMAND IMMEDIATE withdraw of all US forces in Iraq.

Contact the media, boycott the media, throw away your TV it is useless anyway.

Organize and defeat the FACIST WAR MACHINE.

Peace.

Remember--the "MSM" is far from "Mainstream."

"Corporate Media" is more like it.

First, I am very proud of Cindy and everyone who protested. Organized, great speeches and I believe effective, although little accurate coverage by MSM.

Second, please know that pulling out of Iraq and getting Bush out of office is critical to our well-being and the world. The neocons are going for global dominance, which is why the arrogant, incompetent attitude. They could care less about our needs, the law, helping our soldiers or victims in NOLA.

Oil is important to BushCo, but global dominance and genocide is their ultimate goal. They want to depopulate the world by 80%. Iran and Venezuela are next. China and Russia will be brought into this. Look for the next world war if these madmen are not stopped!

War May Be On The Horizon

The Noble Cause for which our soldiers are dying is our inalienable right to waste gasoline.

Exactly!! How did OUR oil get under THEIR sand??

With the skewed coverage of this past weekend's protests, as well as the downplaying of numbers in the protests of 2002 and 2003, the "mainstream" television news sources are showing their bias and are attempting to make the anti-war movement go away. They are, possibly more than Bush himself, a major part of the problem.

The next big protest should take place outside CNN's headquarters in Atlanta, protesting their attempts to hide last week's (and 2002 and -3's) protest. See them try to ignore THAT. (MSNBC and FOX could follow, too.)

Even better - lets all just stop our cable subscriptions. Then we'll be speaking in a language that the cable media can understand!

Already done. I will not pay for TV. Internet gives me much more of a choice.

There are many other things to be done. Buy clean burning biodiesel and hybrid small cars. Stop buying cheap petro-made plastic crap that you don't need. Voluntary simplicity. It's amazing how much easier life is when you have less unnecessary stuff.

If we want to stop the gluttony going on with the Corporation States of America, we must stop it within ourselves.

Our decisions on spending are incredibly powerful. Stop spending money on useless "luxury" and throw away items. Then watch the power shift into our hands.

We are the power! We buy the products. The advertisers will be hurt if we attack the media. We have to organize. The media has betrayed our humanity. This government PNAC, Project for the New American Century, is taking us to an a place that is evil.America get your head out of your ass and educate. Read what has been planned by our leaders.The media ignores 300,000 marching on Washington D.C. and yet they televise on CSPAN A GROUP OF 400 Pro war Bush Activists. Something is very, very wrong. All I can say is let Brownie tomorrow stuff his mouth full of the cake this administration is pushing down every Americans throat. Evil in the hands of the fools is the beginning and end of our nightmare. Remember we own the media. We are the consumers.They will be shocked if we shut them down. Email all the media, we have to look at past programs that were boycotted by people. Friends, Soap, EVEN THUOGH THEY BECAME HITS THE MEDIA WAS FEARFUL AND WANTED TO PULL THE PROGRAMS. We have to make a big noise just like the f***** republicans.

I'm reminded of that famous line Albert Finney repeated many times, in the movie NETWORK, as it seems appropriate now !!! We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it (shrub and his lies and greedy cronies) anymore !

http://www.whysanity.net/monos/network3.html

Time to begin a national M.A.H.A.N.T.I.A. movement, folks!
(M.A.H.A.N.T.I.A = Mad As Hell And Not Taking It Anymore)

Make buttons, t-shirts, posters, etc. for ALL The People who are being shafted and shitted by this Bushist regime. It is now beyond party politics, it is We The People against a Fascist Tyranny won by stealth and criminality.

Create a M.A.H.A.N.T.I.A movement in your cities and towns.

Create, create, create! M.A.H.A.N.T.I.A.!

The media coverage has been non existant except for a tiny 'token' mention. Thanks to Michael Powell and the corporate-monopolization he conducted at the FCC for Bush's "support base".
If only EVERY protestor would email ABC, CBS, NBC and their local news stations

    ALL ON THE SAME DAY/TIME....

protesting the NONcoverage just imagine what that could do! Their servers would probably be so overloaded they'd explode!

.....trick is to make a concentrated and organized effort to jar the media right out of their boots, and it's especially important for us to target the Media at this time, considering that the pnac-bushCo is planning to wipe out PBS now.

The media is not America anymore. Be pissed because a march on washington was not covered and a small pro war group was given alot of attention. This is beyond disgraceful it is a total black out of accurate news reporting. I do not think there is a word to describe what I am feeling to night but if I must give emotion to my thoughts then I relate to those people who waited on the over passes for six days without food or water. Americans begging the world to help them, but at the same time feelig so betrayed that our own government did not come to aid in the most rapid manner. What do you think these people thought as they watched the media hovering over head recording their thirst and hunger. What do you think the world thought as we let our own american population stand with dying old and young crying for food and WATER. Pity our government, pity our congress, pity the uncaring that caused so much pain. Pity a government whose leader was given information that the levyees would not hold, and with this knowlege continued to vacation. Pity this America that does not want to read or find out about this governments agenda for implementig an idea called the project for the new American century. Pity us all because we have let it happen. Be strong America look up the information.

This is the first time I've seen any reference to the pnac. I was beginning to think that nobody knew about them. I was at the Sept. 24th March in Washington and my t-shirt that I made myself was the only pnac reference that I saw.

" EQUAL TIME "

FREE SPEECH IS A JOKE NOW

Simutaneous Mass Media Write-In. When? The time is now! We don't just need citizen action, we need Collective Action. We should all start writing, faxing, calling and e-mailing the media and our elected officials!

You are so right. Let's do this. It is the least we can do!
