get to together with friends, make some signs and find a busy street corner. I feel we must respond in a visable way.

1. good idea but...
six people on a street corner looks lame and probably does the cause more harm than good.

3. disagree
any presence is better than none. You might pick up twenty more while you're out there.

5. I also disagree
I expect there would be a positive response, at least where I live. Many of people are upset.

6. I'll be out there protesting, G_j!!!
Saturday, April 10th, I'll be with the man himself, Dennis Kucinich, who said MONTHS AGO we needed to turn it all over to the UN, get the corporations out of Iraq, and get our troops outta there.

Very few had the time to listen.

But, guess what, I'm not afraid to say it.... THE MAN WAS RIGHT ALL ALONG!!!!

So, I'll be with him, luckily, and doing what we can together to keep what remains of any sanity in this country.

I love ya, Dennis, and my respect and admiration only grows.

Kanary
