Let The Fun Begin

vigils and protests
This will be a busy week for Individuals For Justice, we will try to attend 3 events:

Tuesday, February 19 at 0900 Mark Hatfield Fed Courthouse---1000 SW 3rd Ave. To hear what Judge Simon has in mind for the people of Portland concerning the "Deal" made by DOJ and the city to settle a civil suit brought by Department of Justice. The Po Po is the target of the suit.

Wednesday, February 20 at 0930 we will take our seat in the front row of Portland City Council to support those brave souls who have the courage to tell the council what is on their mind. We will wear a t-shirt with something opposing adding fluoride to our drinking water.

Friday, February 22 we will return to the Hawthorne Bridge at 1st and Madison on the West Side to begin our vigil to ask the good people of Portland, Oregon not to vote to add a toxic waste to our drinking water. Vote No on adding fluoride to our wonderful pure water. We should be there about 4:00 PM and stay until after 5:00 PM. We will try to be on the bridge every Friday until the election in May. Join us if you can, call city hall if you can not, or just stop and say hello to us. Let the fun begin!

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?"
