PROTEST BY VIETNAM VET IN PORTLAND, OR.

"VET SAYS

Will you take one hour and join me?
Bring you own signs and as long as you are willing to sign your name to what you say, then say it and so be it. We must stop this criminal administration now!

First Friday of protesting on the Morrison Bridge went well, got there at 0730 and stayed until 0830. I figured about 100 cars per minute so over five thousand saw my sign which said:
VET
SAYS
BUSH
LIES
DEMOCRACY DIES!!!!!
Two people came up to me from Grand Ave. and thanked me for being there, that was cool-----only about four or five people gave me the finger, the rest gave me thumbs up or ignored me. One police car stopped to talk but was professional and wished me luck. So next Friday I will take on Sen. Smith. HAHA! I DRANK A BOTTLE OF WINE LAST NIGHT AFTER BUSH'S LOVE FEST WITH THE PRESS-----THAT WAS BAD.

the fight goes on 03.May.2005 13:56

Well---I have to start getting ready for my Friday morning protest on the Morrison Bridge in Portland, OR. I am going to go after our republican senator Gordon Smith---------- thinking maybe holding a sign saying:


VET SAYS
SEN. SMITH

I intend to be on the bridge every Friday morning so that people will recognize me and wonder what I will say next.
