Our new diplomacy
Our new diplomacy

We will return to the Hawthorne Bridge on the West-side near 1st and Madison this Friday at 1600, (4:00 PM). This is a protest to remind people going home for the weekend that we are now involved in yet another war, the war on Libya. We are, along with NATO, dropping uranium laced bombs and missiles on a very small country and telling the world we are saving them from colonel Gaddafi's revenge.

My sign this week will read
