Miami Blocking FTAA Protesters: Make Your Voice Heard!
This week, the City of Miami is hosting talks around the Free Trade Agreement of the Americas (FTAA), yet another "free traitor" sellout of the American people and the poor who live in the partner countries.

The bottom line is the city of Miami is actively trying to prevent people from exercising their Constitutionally guaranteed right to assembly and free speech by preventing us from gathering near the talks. They are also preventing us from finding adequate housing, threatening churches and other organizations who attempt to put us up for the night.

More details below. Please call or email Miami city officials and express your opinion about their brutish, undemocratic, anti-American behavior. You with me?

2. part of the 87 billion
Hidden in the 87 billion Iraq bill was 8.5 million to pay for "security" at these talks. I don't have a link, but got an e-mail about three weeks ago documenting this.
