Report from FIST (Fight Imperialism Stand Together)

Hello Friends Against War and Oppression,
As we are sure you know the Republican party is having its convention in St. Paul, MN next week to push another war monger towards the whitehouse and celebrate the last eight years of war and destruction on the peoples of the world. Members of Raleigh FIST, young workers and students at NCSU, UNC, and local highschools, are traveling with other young activists from NC to participate in a week of protest at the RNC. http://www.protestrnc2008.org/ The local organizers in St. Paul have offered us housing, but we need to raise about $1500 to cover the cost of gas, tolls, renting a van for a week, and a hotel room to break the 20 hour drive in half. Checks can be made sent to Elena Everett, 601 Swan St. Durham, NC 27701. Independent Voices will be traveling with us to document the protest, so look for the video on public access, the internet, and at public screenings. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Yours In Struggle,

Raleigh FIST (Fight Imperialism, Stand Together)
