Activist Michel Darr (hunger strike day-20) State Capital steps Police say "Move by 11pm"

Keep National Guard Home
An ongoing vigil to keep the guard from being deployed is underway on the Oregon Capital steps... Rummer has it that the "protesters will be arrested tonight if not off the steps by 11pm"
Michele Darr the lady who is on a hunger strike and its day 20 is on the capital steps
She is fasting until the Oregon NG troops are returning back / not going to Iraq

She is at a vigil on the front steps (video coming soon)and has been for many days
The state police removed her by arrest 3 times ...(if I'm right all charges dropped)
They are saying that she cant protest on the US Capital steps after 11:00pm
She isn't going to back down
She says the ACLU and her lawyer say that an individual has the right to protest 24 / 7 on public property

The rumor I hear is ... "the cops are coming" after 11 tonight (Wednesday)

If in one is in the Salem area they may want to show some solidarity, witness, document, or join in with her and the others at this "peace Vigil" it would be welcomed

She is strong in her determination to stand up to the war machine please stop by if you can
