13. I agree, the problem is organizing it
Edited on Fri May-27-05 10:02 PM by dissent1977
We have not focused our attentions on the corporate media nearly enough. We certainly could get a massive protest organized by Feb. 2006 if we had the resources, but to organize a march with a massive turnout like you are talking about we need lots of help. We need to find literally hundreds of groups around the country to cosponsor this thing if we are going to get anywhere close to a million people to turn out, much less "millions". A million people in New York is a goal that I think could be accomplished, but only if we can get some big name people involved. DU alone does not have anywhere near the capicity to organize something like this on our own.

On edit: as a sidenote it would probably be more effective to organize just one massive protest in New York as opposed to several smaller protests. Although people in other cities who were not able to attend could certainly organize smaller protests in their hometowns, by focusing our attention on one city in particular we can attract larger crowds to that one, as the media is going to try to avoid this story like the plague we need to make sure we can get at least one protest so big they can not ignore it.
