Excuse the non-sequitor, please. We had met on this street corner not that long ago- alas, I can't make it this weekend, but I trust you'll pass this information on to people who can use it, pleaseGood Day to You, Sir
(They seems shocked last time to have opposition- we should keep it up)
Please join us at 16th & Broadway, in Sacramento, this Saturday, August 26th, from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm, to make the following demands for peace in the Middle East:
1) that Israel immediately release all of the democratically elected Palestinian representatives that the Israeli military has kidnapped from Palestinian territory and is now holding in Israeli prisons;
2) that all Israeli military personnel immediately get out of Gaza and Lebanon, and that Israel stop its policy of aggression in both regions;
3) that U.S. representatives stop their blanket support for Israel and recognize that peace in the Middle East means a free Palestine that includes the right of return; and
4) that all U.S. military personnel immediately get out of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Folks, there is a real danger right now, because the U.S. and Israel are headed down a path of EXPANSION, not reduction, of their collaborative military goals in the Middle East. It's quite clear that they now have their sights on Iran. If we don't start pushing back harder right now, we could very easily soon find ourselves demanding an end to World War III. Seriously.
While our demonstrations alone certainly won't solve these problems, they are a very important part of the effort. They not only create a forum for networking, but they also draw public attention to the issues and convey messages generally withheld from corporate news broadcasts. On the other hand, sometimes our messages from the demos do get local media coverage; and when that happens, we have a rare opportunity to expose some truths to people who usually get distorted news.
So please forward this to others and come out to 16th & Broadway this Saturday, and bring your friends, banners, flags, signs, art and instruments!

The Moonbats want another go-around
In the comments section of one of my recent posts, one of the pro-Israel counter-protesters from the big pro-Hezbollah event wrote me to let me know that the terrorist-loving moonbats are going to put on another freakshow. This Saturday, August 26th, they will be meeting at the same location: 16th and Broadway in Sacramento from 5:30 until 7:30pm. I don't know if I can make this one. I think I did a pretty thorough job of photographically documenting the last one, and I also have Miroslav's showing of the documentary Obsession to attend. If anyone is interested though, I highly suggest you go down to 16th and Broadway and watch the action. It gets pretty amusing in a make-you-heartsick-for-your-country sort of way. I have copied and pasted the commentor's message here if you want to read the whole thing:
