Rousers of the Rabble!
Fanners of the Flames of Discontent!
Agitators and Organizers!
A massive anti-war mobilization is scheduled for Sat, March 20 in Washington, DC.
We don't know about you, but we've been feeling frustrated, angry, un-listened to and impotent lately. This will simply not do!
So, we are helping to organize a bus for people from Lexington to attend the march/protest/mobilization.
Those of us opposed to the wars have really dropped the ball since the election. Well, here is a chance to send a message to the Obama Administration and to get that emotional and political boost that only participating in a mass mobilization can provide. If you've never been to a massive demonstration -- they are fun, energizing, solidarity-building, pessimism-reducing events.
We are trying to arrange a 28-seat bus. Let's pack it with people we know and some we don't and go have a great time doing something that desperately needs doing.
The plan is to make it as cheap and convenient as possible. Bus fare is $102 per person.
We will leave Lexington late Friday; attend the mobilization on Saturday morning/afternoon; leave DC Sat evening; and be back in time for Sunday brunch. [No overnight costs].
We know that most of us do not have $102 just lying around.
Some of us don't even have a job right now!
We know that beds are more comfortable than bus seats.
We know that some of us are overworked and weekends are a sacred time of rest!
But, let's not allow such trivialities get in the way of stopping these cursed wars and raising some hell!
Seriously... please consider coming. Let me know asap if you think you might be interested.
