JAN 20this too late. BE IN DC on Jan. 6th THE BIG DAY!
Edited on Thu Dec-16-04 12:00 AM by Griffy
Thats when representatives.. like Conyers can object to the results... the best thing we can do is have 10's or 100's of thousands of people on the mall (front lawn of the Capitol). The words of our leaders will be powerful with the masses at the door! Look at the growing awareness.... by then if the fraud is in the open we will need to PERSONALLY hold the congress to democracy. That can ONLY be done in person. BE THERE.. plan now... Im in DC and hope to help coordinate and even take in protesters in my ouse, moms, brother, friends... this should be our true mission! We are still working on public understanding, but if that comes we will need to be in DC. All roads lead here!

1. First, someone needs to get with Barrack Obama...
And make certain he'll be willing to co-sponsor a Congressional objection...so we won't have to endure the sickening spectacle that Michael Moore sadly immortalized in "F-9-11".

How fitting that it falls on Eppiphany!:eyes:

69. He joins the Senate on Jan 3rd. Though it would be quite a
ballsy thing for a newly minted Junior Senator's first official act to be discrediting the Presidential election. Interesting idea.

38. Contact the IAC. They'll get the 500,000 people. Get Byrd to object.
Byrd has taken the lead when it comes to civil rights and voting rights and the Senate. He was the only Democrat to oppose the Intelligence Reform Act. He is the one we can most trust.

68. Letter from Ukranian who was there: Ukrainians Show Americans How
Ukrainians Show Americans How to Reject Election Fraud
Can We Emulate Their Courage & Determination?

http://tinyurl.com/6oga6

By Michael Bleyzer (from Kyiv, Ukraine)
http://educate-yourself.org/cn/ukraineorangerevolution01dec04.shtml
December 1, 2004

(Copy of the letter of a young Ukrainian. A nice, timely report from someone on the spot....)

As you likely know from the news, we are in the middle of the Orange Revolution here in Kyiv. I can tell you that this is one of the most incredible experiences of my entire life to be here during this time. We have been spending a lot of time on the streets and on the main square - Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square).

It is difficult to describe what is going on here. No news footage on your TV screens can express the feeling you get being surrounded by a million people. The most amazing thing -- which I believe will have worldwide sociological implications for a long time to come -- is how incredible this crowd is. When you think of a crowd unhappy about something, being cheated by politicians, betrayed by the system - you expect a bunch of angry, agitated people. Well, think again. This is the happiest, friendliest, most incredibly loving and supportive group of people I have ever encountered.

People are smiling, singing, laughing and offering help and support to each other. You don't see any police anywhere, not a single policeman in sight - imagine that. According to the mayor's office in the city of Kyiv - there are no reports of any crime in this huge metropolitan area. Crime has stopped! Everyone is a friend, everyone is a neighbor, everyone is a brother. I do not know how long t his can last, but we are in the middle of some kind of miracle.

It is cold out there. Most nights the temperature gets well below zero Centigrade (which is in the teens for those of you that only know Fahrenheit). But the tent city that was built in the middle of Kyiv and now has hundreds if not thousands of tents is very warm indeed. There are mountains of warm clothes everywhere on Khreshchatyk (the main street of the city), which were donated by Kyivites. Food, hot coffee, hot tea are abundant and free everywhere. But you do not see any alcohol - this is the most sober one million Ukrainians you will ever meet. The crowd is completely self-organizing and improving its collective behavior continuously. Every new day brings new elements of better organization, improved conditions, improved communications and general functionality...

It has become clear to any observer that this crowd is bound to win. There is absolutely no way to stop this crowd without a massive blood bath, which is almost impossible to imagine to take place in the center of Europe, with all the world's TV cameras . Over the last 5 days, the opposition has been winning continuous victories every single day.

The score for the first five rounds is clearly 5-0. The crowds are growing and demonstrations are now taking place all over the country. More and more famous athletes, actors, artists, high-ranking military and police officers are joining the opposition. When Ruslana, the most famous Ukrainian singer, and heavyweight champion Vladimir Klitchko joined Victor Yushchenko on the podium, the crowd went wild. The following day brought Leh Valensa, senior officers of SBU (former KGB) and Police, several formerly neutral "oligarchs" and finally a major breakthrough at the end of the day - the rebirth of free media in Ukraine.

Prior to that, only Channel 5 was broadcasting 24 hours a day directly from Maidan and giving complete coverage to all the events. And of course, our Volia Cable was proudly delivering its signal to some 1.5 million viewers in Kyiv despite all the pressure on them, including several horrible days in
July when some of our key managers had to spend 10 days in jail. One other channel (Era) was doing the same, but only a few hours a day.

All major channels had previously been completely ignoring the millions of people on the streets, never reporting it and instead showing cartoons, classical music concerts and exotic travel destinations.

We knew that most journalists from the major channels had either been fired by then or had gone on strike because they refused to continue broadcasting lies. As a result, all news programs on National channels 1 and 2, Inter, 1+1, Noviy, and others simply ceased any and all operations. For 3 days in a row, most of Ukraine, which only has access to the major channels, had no TV news.

Imagine that - the very day after a major election - no news for three days, no morning news, no evening news, no news at all! All these channels simply had no creative staff left to produce bogus news. All fired or on strike.

Thursday night it all changed. The management and owners of all of the major channels gave in to the demands of their striking journalists and allowed honest news reporting for the first time in the history of independent Ukraine. Some of the channels like National Channel 1 and 1+1 began their evening news broadcast on Thursday with a group shot of all journalists standing together and one of them reading a statement from the creative staff in which they swore to report honest news and honest news only!

This was one of the most unbelievable sights I have ever seen. And then the miracle happened - they showed a direct feed of a million proud Ukrainians on Maidan in Kyiv to the whole country. If there are defining moments in the birth of a Nation, that was certainly one! I am so proud to be able to witness it with my own eyes, in spite of all the tears that covered them at that moment.

Today was another exciting day with the extraordinary session of the Ukrainian Rada currently ongoing. It started over four hours ago and is being shown live on a number of TV channels all over the country and also to people on the streets. We are all glued to the television screens. The Rada already voted to consider the runoff elections invalid, express non-confidence in the Central Election Committee and several other major items. They are still debating, but are making good progress. Things are looking up! The Orange Revolution continues!

There's no reason we can't turn out huge numbers. It would, however, take a substantial amount of organizing and networking and we should be working on it starting now.

7. Yes, Rally Permits in hand - go to www.redefeatbush.com
From www.redefeat.com:
"Come to the Capitol January 6th and show you support the challenge to Ohio's electoral votes.

"Inside the Capitol our brave leaders will rise to challenge the legitimacy of the 2004 presidential election. Outside we must show them we stand with them. Join us in Upper Senate Park adjacent to the Capitol from 10:00 AM until they emerge to speak to us."

From the Progressive Democrats of Illinois:

"The Rally on Jan 6th has to be a Rally not a March, we have the permit for the west side of the Capitol Bldg and we are going to be working with www.redefeatbush.com as our primary web site, with car pool and bus info on it and www.wedonotconcede.com as a secondary site, so everything will be on their web sites soon, they will be the primary sponsors and the Illinois Progressive Democrats will be a co-sponsor, www.illinoisprogressives.org Still waiting final word from NAACP-National Voter Fund and Rainbow Push as primary sponsors too.

"This rally is extremely important, everyone in Ohio agrees that the recount will probably be finished by then but the legal actions will probably not be finished, of course anything can happen but odds are they will be stalled. All it takes is 1 Rep and 1 Sen to create a Challenge, then everyone separates into the 2 chambers and has a debate. But the debate can be stifled by Cheney and his lynchman Hastert. There will have to be a huge rally outside to tell them they won't get away with it! Then there is a vote in each chamber or they can choose some middle path, like a Commission as in 1876."

10. Agree. We need, truly, millions of our fellow citizens in DC on 6 Jan
I know we will join together with responsible members of the HR and the Senate and halt the fraudulent national election of 2004.

We will halt it on 6 Jan 2005. That MUST BE THE TARGET DAY for massive demonstration that we will not tolerate anything but a HALT.

We will remedy the situation by providing to each of our fellow citizens who are eligible to vote an equitable access to do just that -- vote.

We will ensure that each voter has a mechanism to ensure that their vote is counted exactly as they intend it to be.

We will save our American franchise of democracy.

We will bring joy and hope to all of humanity because of our actions.

We will prevail.

Peace.

derived from my diary:
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2004/12/16/15153/583

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&
Subject: What we must make happen on 6 Jan 2005

Dear __,

Having reflected, all day, on the exceptional dKos Diary "Folks Don't Get It" by shanikka, my resolve to see the 'national election of 2004' halted on 6 Jan 2005 transformed to "do or die."

You should read what she had to say and what it elicited from others:

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2004/12/15/9734/4841

I sent the following message to several colleagues:

We truly need millions of our fellow citizens in DC on 6 Jan.

I know we will join, together on that day, with responsible members of the HR and the Senate and halt the fraudulent national election of 2004.

We will halt it on 6 Jan 2005. That MUST BE THE TARGET DAY for the most massive demonstration in American history -- a demonstration that asserts conclusively that "we the people" will not tolerate anything but a HALT to the farce, the brutal, systematic attack on our fellow citizens in their effort to "form a more perfect union" -- to vote and know their vote was recorded as they intended.

We will remedy the situation by providing to each of our fellow citizens who are eligible to vote an equitable access to do just that -- vote.

We will ensure that each voter has a mechanism to ensure that their vote is counted exactly as they intend it to be.

We will save our American franchise of democracy.

We will bring joy and hope to all of humanity because of our actions between now and 6 Jan 2005, and every day thereafter.

We will never forget the peril to our Constitution, our freedom that we confronted together and resolved -- we will have lived and sacrificed in the honor of all those whose ideals and sacrifices have graced each of us and for whom we now must prove our gratitude.

We will prevail.

xxxxxxxx

"I'm an American patriot, not a pro-fraud theocrat" -- and, you betcha I approve of this message and will die making it stick, if that is what must happen.

39. I'll be there just as I was in 2000 with David Lytell of Democrats.com....
and PFAW, as well as my 78 y.o mother and my 57 y.o. sister. We were in disbelief and heartbroken as we listened to the CBC begging for just one Senator to object. We've since been told that it was Al's choice that no one object; but I tell you, it was absolutely unbelievable that not one Senator objected when we all knew that the election had been stolen! You just don't know how heartbroken we were, standing there on the Capitol grounds, freezing to death, and listening to the Freepers screaming
at us "get over it"! The bastards!

45. Reality check:
Considering how pathetic the turnout was on Sunday, what makes you think that you will be able to get large numbers of people to travel to Washington when they wouldn't even show up for a protest in thier own state? Wouldn't a similarly small turnout only serve to discredit this movement by showing that it lacks public support? :shrug:

58. YES.. redefeatbush has a "Block bush" event, at the Capitol, on the 6th!
Edited on Fri Dec-17-04 02:22 PM by Griffy
Plz promote this... informing and encourging others to come to DC is just as good as making the trip yourself... people have lives and kids and such... We have o hope that the evidence will be out by then and we need to plan ahead for that! thanks

83. Is there a movement to get a senator to endorse Conyers?
Edited on Tue Dec-28-04 01:42 AM by baby_bear
Shouldn't we all be writing to our senators, at least those of us w/ Dem senators, telling them we forgive them for last time but this time, we expect them to step up to the plate?

I haven't seen that effort, but I will write to mine myself.

b_b

On edit:
Here's an answer to my own question:
http://www.ilcaonline.org/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=1308&mode=thread&order=0&thold=0</snip>

Remember that scene in "Farenheit 9-11" in which members of the Congressional Black Caucus are unable to challenge the 2000 election on behalf of their disenfranchised constituents because not a single US senator will join them? You can help make sure that's not repeated on January 6th by:
1) Sending the letter below, or one like it in your own words, to your two senators, and phoning their offices to make the same point,
2) Attending a rally in Columbus Ohio on the afternoon of Jan. 3 and one in Washington, D.C., outside the capitol - senate side - at 10 a.m. on Jan. 6th. Rev. Jesse Jackson and other fighters for democracy will be at both pro-democracy rallies to demand that every vote be counted.
</snip>
more there.....

I'm off to write my letters.
