We need all of Cascadia in on this.
SOS. Bush will be in Portland and Seattle on or around Aug. 21-22. The dates and locations of both events are kept secret (because this prez is too popular). Our Corporate press outlets have leaked this info to us. Now we have to organize to STOP BUSH'S TRIP TO CASCADIA. Our victory is a CANCELLATION OF THIS TRIP.
Bush is on a re-election campaign finance swoop with corporate donors and others' willing to pay 1,000 dollars a plate to listen to his dribble and make millions in return. Bush thinks he can sail up the coast of California and enter Cascadia without alarm. We say "No fascists in Cascadia!"
We for once do not need to make our grievances known because our grievances have been so well know for so long. We could start with the American coup of 2000, or we could talk about the Kyoto Treaty, or the Anti-Personal Land Minds Treaty, or a Machiavellian 911. But that is beside the point when we have systemic detentions and deportations of Arab and other Asian immigrants, the Patriot Act creating more fear and distrust among people and the whole US government telling the world to "bring it on". We also have the highest rate of unemployment in the country as our most petty grievance.
We have great problems on our hands. We have the whole world watching, for real.
If you cannot make it to either Portland or Seattle on or around those dates, organize other events to lend us support.
