Massive Sit-in, White House -Surround It ! 11/7-11/8
Edited on Mon Oct-09-06 12:41 PM by jarnocan
Cindy Sheehan calls for massive election day

Sit in at the White House November 7th and 8th
"We Want our Country Back and
The Troops Home from Iraq"

I guess this is also what Ann Wright was talking about, in NC


Quote:
If the Republicans steal another election, it is time for we the people to stand up (or sit down) to demonstrate that we are finally not taking corrupt and illegitimate elections anymore. We need to surround the White House by the tens of thousands those days.

But equally important, if a miracle occurs and the Democrats take back one or both Houses of Congress, we also need to be out in great numbers to remind them that we will hold them to the same standards of peace with justice that we are about to hold the Republicans to. .....
Come and make history with us by being the checks and balances on our government that are so sorely needed! Or organize sit-ins in your community if you cant make it to DC.

They should be too embarrassed to sit down unless they have a voted stamp.

when no verifiable ballots available... one hates to discourage voters, but to do nothing- when nothing has really worked, as far as restoring our democracy after the last few fraudulent elections, seems intolerable.
thousands have died due to our fraudulent elctions, and so many other horrible events....

3. absentee ballots-sorry you didn't read the article before commenting-also
if NO verifiable ballots available - I think it would be wise to call for a protest then and there.

5. I should have included this part of her quote.:
Vote absentee so your vote will have a better chance of being counted and join Gold Star Families for Peace and other prominent peace groups and organizations in our continuing quest to end the illegal and immoral occupation of Iraq and hold our government accountable.


Do you think www.worldcantwait.net will get behind this? Actually thousands are meeting locally-so I guess WE are worldcantwait so hopefully they will join in- Ann Wright speaks at their rallies, Mark Crispin Miller and many others who care about these and all the realted issues are involved-signed the call etc.
