Protest in Troy January 11 6 p.m. Rochester and Big Beaver
We have a strong possibility of press being at our event. The more the merrier and the stronger the message to President Bush.


I just signed up to coordinate an Emergency Rally to Stop Iraq Escalation with MoveOn and I wanted to invite you to come

I think its really important that we tell Bush and Congress that the American public wont stand for additional troops being sent to Iraq. This event is going to be a great way to do that.

You can sign up for the event I'm coordinating here:
http://political.moveon.org/event/escalation/31161

Here are the details of my event:
Stop the Escalation
Corner of Big Beaver and Rochester Road, NW Corner
Corner of Rochester Road and Big Beaver NW Corner
Troy, MI 48084
Thursday, 11 Jan 2007, 6:00 PM

Hope I'll see you there

2. You counted all of us?
I knew we had at least 100 -- It was a great turnout. My fingers and toes were so numb by the time I left.

It was nice finally meeting you.

:hi:

5. Protest on Fox 2 and article in Oakland Press
The Oakland Press carried this article today on Page A 10 http://tinyurl.com/yabv7o

We were also on Fox 2 News at 10 and we had a live feed at 6 on Fox. The Troy Gazette, Detroit News and Detroit Free Press were there, but no stories appeared. I did not personally speak with the Freep or the News, so can't confirm their attendance.
