Protest the F-Wars

A weekly protest this day
War is killing and blowing things up!
War is killing and blowing things up!
We will stand for justice and not just peace,
Inside are hearts are broken, tears run down our souls,
Outside maybe we will smile.

We stand against these F-Wars,
Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya, but there are more,
Pakistan, Syria, and Yemen too.

Gods are crying in all these and more,
Come and stand with a sign,
For just one moment make all see,

Murder is Murder no matter who,
Pull the trigger, fire a rocket,
Send a plane.

One hour on the Hawthorne,
One hour on the bridge,
We be there, where be you?

We will keep a presence on the bridge for a bit, these wars are killing us as a nation and must come to an end. There must be people in the streets, to remind others we are now involved in 6 wars in the Middle East.

President Obama has been a big disappointment to many, now is not the time to give up--we must fight to keep this country from going back into the hands of the people who would just sell it off piece by piece. We must tell the corporate state that we will fight for our freedoms and never surrender. Come join us if you can, call your representative and voice your opposition to these wars and the slaughter of the innocent. We will be on the Hawthorne Bridge at 1st and Madison from 4:00 PM to about 5:30 PM, this is a non-violent protest and we do have some fun.
