Die-in on Saturday

Saturday - 3/29
12:00 - 1:00pm in Pioneer Square
Anyone interested in doing another "Die-in" this weekend? I'm proposing an hour before the rally in the square, so we can just join that at the end.

I'm going to make a load of toe-tags (although you can wear them anywhere) based on the information here:
 http://www.iraqbodycount.net/bodycount.htm
And some for American, British, and Iraqi troops as well.

Hopefully, a toe-tag with real information about the real people dying will help bring the reality home for people who still don't get it.
