A Gandhi sort of protest

I call for a protest much like the protest the Indians did to the British mines. We walk in to them again and again until all of us get arested.
We need to get 5,000 of us anti war folks togather. We need to march through Salem and then march into the Capital building during session. We need to march 5 at a time into the police lines and every last one of us need to be arrested. It should take most of the day to get us all arested. They will look like jack asses in front of the cameras, and I don't think the media could gloss over 5,000 arests. Watch that scene in Gahndi and think about it.
