The "I want YOU to March for Peace -- March 15" banner shown above made the Friday night march through downtown Portland a very effective rallying cry for action. In addition, MoveOn volunteers handed out the MoveOn fact sheet about why the war is wrong and/or a copy of Senator Byrd's great Feb. 13th speech against the war to the folks we passed in the street:
Earlier in the afternoon we handed out about 2,000 leaflets as we talked up the virtual march on Washington DC that MoveOn and 32 other organizations are sponsoring this Wednesday February 26.
The corporations control the media. Let's remind them this Wednesday that they don't control the Internet, or us. Help us overwhelm the congressional phone and FAX lines. Everyone can register to send a FAX for free (do it now at the above URL). We are also scheduling phone calls so that someone is calling their congressman from every state, every minute of the day.
When I spoke briefly at the Friday night rally a big cheer went up when I asked how many knew about MoveOn.org. The 19 MoveOn volunteers that leafleted with me all know about Indymedia now, too, if they didn't before (I sent them the URL). I expect that almost all of us will be there together with you on March 15. Please join us this Wednesday, February 26th.
