Hail to the Thief

Protest the Fall of Democracy
JANUARY 20TH
PIONEER SQUARE
2 PM
Anti-Inauguration Demonstration

Are you disgusted by the blatant abuse of power that resulted in GW Bush's selection? Are you sickened by the racist machinations of Florida's right-wing regime? Do you want election reform and campaign finance reform? Do you want John Ashcroft's nomination blocked?

Come voice your outrage at this demonstration against the coronation of an unelected "president" and the total corruption of democracy! We Will Not Forgive, and We Will Not Forget!

DOWN WITH KING GEORGE THE SECOND!!! LONG LIVE THE PEOPLE!!!
Either winner, our system is fucked up 13.Jan.2001 18:04

I don't like democracy at all. The system is flawed. Democracy is not the answer. Will there be others like me who want to protest a democratic inaguration on j20? Bring your black flags and come to the Sq.

NONVIOLENT + LEGAL + UNOFFICAL + PROTEST + STOLEN ELECTION = INAUGURAUCTION
THIS SATURDAY, JAN. 20, 2P.M. PIONEER SQUARE DOWNTOWN PORTLAND

The following web site is a poster announcing a little get together in Portland's "living room" (aka Pioneer Square), downtown this Saturday, Jan. 20 at 2pm. No one group or individual is responsible, "we are all to blame, some just more so than others," claimed a reliable source. Spontaneous, random events are proceeding as unplanned. "We are a way for the cosomos to know itself," said Carl Sagan from somewhere beyond.

Please down load, print, copy and distribute between now and the event.

NOTICE: While, and as my critics often remind me, I only write for myself; yet as far as I know, just so you know, no one involved in this unofficial event has the intention of violating ANY laws or to undermine civil authority in any way whatsoever. We may be a pain in the kester to some, but we are not criminals or vandals or a bunch of drunk highschool kids. We are committed to a nonviolent, non-confrontational unofficial event. We are comitted to leaving Pioneer Square as we found it, cleaning up should there be a need. We are simply encouraging people to come together under the guideline of a reasonable time, place and manner; in a public space to excersise our rights as specified in the First Amendment. I hope everyone will smile as they do so.

Prediction from the tangled web file: Clinton will grant a last-minute pardon to Panama's ex-dictator and convicted drug trafficker Manuel Antonio Noriega. The longtime former drugs and guns opperative for then CIA head Bush Sr. who went way South on the Agency in the 1980s. The shy star of then President Bush Senior's 1989 made-for-tv 'Panama Invasion,' (aka 'Operation Just Cause') and the now federal prisoner will immediatley be whisked from his hotel suite jail cell, via Shah Air, into hiding along with his four Brazlian voodoo witches and several live chickens. No smoking guns, no dancing skeletons, no deposit, no return, the ruling elite just take turns, and El Chorrillo still burns.
