I don't know if I will be at the 8am march due to pressing concerns that day. But if the idea is to make a statement against the commerce fueling the war, why just go to the media buildings? surely there are better places to make a presence.

YAY! 23.Mar.2003 10:19

You will surely stop me from getting to work tomorrow, as I must go right through downtown and take the Morrison bridge to get there. I'm down with u! i HATE my job. I hate the fact that I must do worthless labor for other people, selling my time to a corporation, in order to survive in this society. If you can bring this system to a halt and free me from the chains of my wage slavery, I SUPPORT YOU!!!

Corporate media should be primary target 23.Mar.2003 10:20

I disagree with Querier. I think that the primary target of our protest should be the corporate media. They create and project the images of glorious warfare with the intent of emotionally manipulating the people. They censor voices of dissent and are the mouthpiece of fascist (and I don't use the term loosely) power. For God's sake, their war coverage comes complete with a musical score, as if it's all just entertainment.

I think that CNN, MSNBC, FOX and all the rest should be stormed and taken over, non-violently, of course.
