Bridges and City Hall

Into The Streets
They are still dying, how many more?
They are still dying, how many more?

We will be in front of the City Council again this week to let them know that we are not in support of their position on the JTTF. Members of Oregon Progressive Party will keep a presence, just to annoy our would-be progressive council. The new protocol for the cops is not written yet and that could be bad for our people---Amanda, Sam and Randy, we are not happy with you and will work to see you do not continue to represent us. The JTTF, Sit/Lie and now the Water scandal are deal breakers for many of us----you have gone too far.

We will be there for an hour, Wednesday and most Wednesdays from now until the election in 2012, from 0900-1000 AM. Come and see us, maybe have a cup of Jo! (little humor there)


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. President Obama decided to go to war without any meaningful debate in the Congress of the United States; an impeachable offense. Come and join us and take a ride on the Justice side. My sign this week will read:


This is a recommended action by Individuals for Justice, if you want to join our band of troublemakers just let us know that you have authority to endorse/join and we will include your organization's name.

War is failure, occupation a disgrace!

"Funding these wars is killing our troops"

* Why laughter?? Because without it I would have gone insane years ago.

Thoreau may have also brooded over the reaction of Emerson, who criticized the imprisonment as pointless. According to some accounts, Emerson visited Thoreau in jail and asked, "Henry, what are you doing in there?" Thoreau replied, "Waldo, the question is what are you doing out there?"
