Poll question: How many TX DU folks participated in Stop war activities last weekend
Please let us know what events you attended to stop the war in Iraq- in the Dallas Air America group alone we had 16 people in DC - i'd just like to know how many DUers went to DC or attended a local event!
Thanks, Nancy

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. I was there in spirit
Couldn't attend either D.C. or locally. I had a work related event that weekend and was out of town. I watched C-Span coverage and read net news reports. I had several friends that went from Austin though. I know at least 10 people that went to D.C.

3. Our Houston Rally is supposed to be rescheduled
and I will be there, whenever and wherever it is. Unfortunately survival comes even before peace, and that was all of our priorities this weekend.

4. Nancy, your question surprises me
you might want to consider that virtually all of Southeast Texas was consumed by immediately pressing concerns - like a Category 5 hurricane speeding toward us.

Maybe a mention of that might be appropriate in your request for data.

6. i met 2 different group of Texans from southeast texas area in DC
Many folks participated in events - even with the hurrican concerns.
I did not list Houston because i didn't think there were any weekend event but i met 2 groups of Texans in DC over the weekend from SE texas !

I didnt think that Rita and its concerns and dangers would keep me from asking if folks in all of Tx particiapted in Peace /anti war activities !

8. There were a lot of us there
but I fully understand why many chose to stay home. I set my family up with what they needed to weather a cat 2 (which is the worst it could have been by the time it hit Austin, if it hit, which it didn't) and I left. If I had lived in Galveston, my choice would have been altogether different.
