some PPRC leadership doesn't like to use indymedia to promote their events because indymedia is too "radical" and they don't want radicals showing up at their events and spoiling them.

whatever!

68 organizations are working on this peace rally 21.Sep.2003 07:42

do the math

More than 68 organizations are working to organize this peace rally. Apparently, NONE OF THEM, thought it worthwhile to post to this site. From Labor to Peace to Social Justice to the Environment, to Faith (Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, and others): A veritable who's who in organizing, and not one thought to post here. Hmmm.

Instead of posting this question, you could put it in the calendar yourself 22.Sep.2003 12:23

Instead of posting here asking why no one ELSE put this event in the calendar, you could have simply entered it into the indymedia calendar yourself.

That's open publishing.
