People "Power Up" Protest January 20, 2005
I propose a two minute blackout protest for those that can not make it to DC.

At 9:00 pm eastern standard time people everywhere should shut the power off in their homes and offices as a protest of this mal-administrations fraWd and harmful policies. At 9:02 we should then simultaneously "Power Up" and create a literal and symbolic surge on the power grid which hopefully sends a clear and definitive message. Enough is Enough!

Disseminate this idea if you like it!
