THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS SITUATION BEING ADDRESSED. MEN AND WOMEN SERVING IN IRAQ ARE BEING KILLED. COUNTLESS OTHER'S ARE BEING INJURED TO THE EXTENT THAT THEY WILL NEVER LIVE NORMAL LIVES. I TAKE THAT VERY SERIOUS BECAUSE WHAT PLACED THESE TROOPS IN DANGER WAS A LIE, AND A CORRUPT PRESIDENT. A CUTE REENACTMENT WHERE EVERYONE WATCHING MAY GET A LAUGH OR TWO FROM SOME PERVERTED INTERTAINMENT VALUE FROM A RECREATION IS TO ME ABSURD. BOTH BRITTISH AND AMERICAN FAMILIE'S ARE SUFERING FROM THESE EVENTS IN IRAQ! I SUGGEST IF YOU ALL WANT TO DO SOMETHING USEFULL, THEN WRITE A LETTER TO YOUR US CONGRESSMAN OR WOMAN, AND PETITION THEM TO SUPPORT A RESOLUTION OF INQUIREY INTO THE CIRCUMSTANCE'S THAT HAVE LED TO THESE DEATHS AND INJURIES OF OUR MILLITARY PERSONEL.YOU BRITTISH CITIZEN'S SHOULD CALL FOR A NATIONAL STRIKE AND SHUT EVERYTHING THERE DOWN FOR A DAY OR TWO! COME TO THINK OF IT, THAT WOULD BE AN EFFECTIVE TACTIC HERE! ANYTHING LESS IS A WASTE! IF YOU WANT TO RECREATE SOMETHING THAT IS REALLY DRAMATIC, THAT WILL LEAVE YOU WITH A LASTING IMPRESSION, HOW ABOUT RECREATEING THE IMMORAL DEATH OF A SOLDIER IN A WAR BASED ON A LIE FROM A CORRUPT PRESIDENT!
**HUMPHREY**

please learn what the "caps lock" key does

If this does actually pick up any press, it will only fuel the false perception that DSM dissent is limited to whack-job liberals living in a fantasy world. This kind of crap is embarassing.

I am not one of the organisers, nor will I be attending. I have to work. But the UK recreation, using real actors, will get attention in the UK that another demo simply would not get. The memos were leaked here but simply havent got the attention they deserved and there is nowhere near the outrage there is over in the States. The Mad Hatter's Tea Party means something over here. It will ridicule Blair and there will be an audience making clear what they think.

Of course this is a serious issue, of course large numbers of people are dying in Iraq, that's pretty much the point isnt it. But frankly you shouldnt be lecturing them on getting real if you're calling for a general strike! It aint going to happen. The Mad Hatter's Tea Party will give out a simple message and at the same time draw attention to the memos, the protests in the US, and to this website. It is pitched just right for a British audience. The Mad Hatter's Tea Party is not quaint, it never was, it will reinforce the message that Blair was mad to go to war with Bush.

WELL ALRIGHT THEN. YOU, OUR BRITTISH FRIENDS KNOW BEST ON THAT PARTICULAR ITEM, AND WELL, ILL TAKE YOUR WORD ON THE MADD HATTER BEING RELIVANT TO YOUR POPULATION. UNDERSTAND HOWEVER, I MEANT NO DISRESPECT TO YOUR COUNTRY, OR TO A PEOPLE I LOVE VERY MUCH. AND SO HELP ME I DO LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH. P.M. BLAIR HAS DISSAPPOINTED ME .
GOD SAVE ENGLAND!!**HUMPHREY**

Thanks for your support. To those who object,I AM one of the organisers and I can assure you that I take the events in Iraq very seriously. The theme of the Mad Hatter is quite deliberate, what happened was utter madness, beyond human reason. As someone who has been involved in the anti war movement from its inception, as someone who sat in the public gallery watching Blair and Straw pat eachother on the back when they won the vote to condemn countless thousands to death, and as someone who was a commuter in London on 7/7, I will do EVERYTHING and ANYTHING to bring this illegal, immoral occupation to an end, and to draw attention to the double standards of our so called leaders. Sometimes you have to do something to capture the imagination and attention of the media, who lets face it we rely on to get our message across. If people laugh I can assure you they will also cry - sometimes that is the only way to get the message home. If that offends some, sobeit, I am far more offended by what my government has done. And I say this as someone who has served on active service in the British army - someone who believed her country right or wrong, someone who believed her country would never ask her to do anything illegal immoral or unjust.

from the anonymous author below, i apologize for calling your campaign "crap". I think you are doing something good, and wish you all the best of luck and hope your message grabs the attention of the press. I'm sorry for immediately demeaning your efforts.

I am sorry for your recent lose of Brits.
But how Blair calls the death of 50+ carnage and con's the world into a war that kills thousands of innocent Iraq's,is spreading Democracy,I just don't know how the press let him get away with this!

This time there little BS pr won't work,it's not the American peoples vote they need,nor is it a witch hunt on Democrats,it's the Frikken Federal Law they have to deal with.
And last I checked they don't need there vote or permission to do there job.
They have the most power when criminal activity is suspected,and it appears this is going beyond Rove.
We have men in our whitehouse who think there above the law,and last I checked in America everybody has to follow the law.

Ya'll over there have been doing political satire for centuries. Of course you are right that this will pitch well for British audience.
And , it will probably get some Americans attention for the first time that never heard of Downing Street Minutes/Memo...then after that we can hit us Yanks with a docu-movie that Michael Moore can throw together about DSM- he can call it "That Darn Memo", or something like that. We need that big splashy popcorn stuff, that's the way we grew up over here (juvenile, huh? That's why so many got sucked in by ShrubBrain- marketing) ... oh Michael, you busy this weekend?

I feel like America is responsible ... I feel just awful and I wish we could take it all back. I am outraged that Bush is causing so much harm and deceit in our name.
