Rally/Vigil For Judicial Moderation, Apr. 26, Minneapolis
An emergency rally has been organized for 5 p.m. next Wednesday to stop the Republican judicial takeover, as part of a national MoveOn PAC day of action. (I signed up to be the media coordinator so I'm calling on all my friends and fellow progressives to help create a large presence!) At last count there were more than 80 events taking place in cities all over the country.

Any day now, Radical Republicans are hoping to seize absolute power to appoint Supreme Court justices who favor right-wing, corporate-biased interests over the rest of us. Please help me send a message to Senators to support fair judges and defend the Supreme Court.

You can get all the info, and sign up to come, at:
http://www.moveonpac.org/event/judicialrallies/698

Here are the details of our event:
Vigil For Judicial Moderation
Federal Courthouse Plaza, downtown Minneapolis, MN
300 South Fourth Street
Minneapolis, MN 55415
Wednesday, 27 Apr 2005, 5:00 PM

Please come! We only have a few days to stop the Republican leadership from making changes that would turn back the clock on generations of progress!

3. Great! A couple hundred have said they'll be there
And we're just starting to get the word out.

We're going to have signs or you can bring your own.

The signs will look like the "Private Property: Keep Out" ones, with the words "Right Wing Judges Only."

Should be an interesting visual in front of the Federal Building.

My co-conspirator (the event planner) is calling on some performance artist friends to join in.

Free signs, or make your own creative statement.
