At the Peace rally today I hung my peace banner on the locked gate of the empty Customs Building adjacent to the Peace Rally gathering place. The banner had 4 lines and said: Stop the War; Teresa Keane; U.S. Senate; votekeane.org. The Portland bicycle cops drove up as the banner was being hung. I asked them how it looked and they said okay and left us alone. Later, the Homeland Security force arrived and the banner disappeared. I approached Commander Ian Canaan, Department of Homeland Security, and requested the banner back. He refused to return it and said it was hung on federal property and I could complain to his boss Ken Spitzer. So now we have the facts that our Peace Rallies are being monitored by Homeland Security. Gee aren't we peace activists a dangerous threat. As your U.S. Senator, I will fire these guys and have them go get a real job.
