I was in Washington D,C. McPherson Park and Freedom Plaza in October 2011 (the 10th anniversary of Afghanistan war), there were thousands there then. I was in Berkeley Ca. in December, I was appalled at the Gestapo, Nazi, cops hammering young students doing a peaceful sit down protest on their own campus. Besides drowning them in pepper spray the pigs were punching the sharp end of their billy clubs into girls stomachs. It was obscene. Local protests make a small statement but I think to be effective a "million man march" has to be organized and Washington D,C. shut down for as long as possible. All people arrested should demand a jury trial which will shut down the court system. YES WE CAN!
Reminds me of some of the lyrics from Zappa's "Who Needs the Peace Corps"
I will love everyone
I will love the police as they kick the shit out of me on the street
Being a middle aged freaky pervert, I might actually enjoy the sexual humiliation, I just don't want to loose any of my teeth or hearing or sight or get any bones broken. I also don't want to get raped in prison after the cops are done raping me.
PS - I met Bunk Gardner, the guy in the wheelchair on WOIIFTM, at a PROJECT/OBJECT show in Teaneck NJ a year or so ago. I didn't meet Don Preston, who was also performing with Bunk. He's between Zappa and Bunk in the pic. Also met Ike and Ray White. It's really really weird meeting people in person you've stared at and wondered about for forty years!
