from Twin Cities Indymedia:
We have had lots of calls to the coalition office asking, “Are the demonstration and march still going as planned?” The answer is YES! The anti-war movement has ALWAYS had a demand of money for human needs not for war, and Hurricane Katrina was one of the reasons for that demand. Hurricane Gustav affects the Republican Party because they don’t want to be seen as ignoring another crisis. However the demonstration will be voicing opposition to the war’s prioritization above human needs such as building levees, the economy, healthcare, etc. In addition, the RNC will still be in session during our march. Tomorrow we can still give our mesage to the party that supported the war and that supports its continuation. Lets show up in record numbers!
If you want to know who is speaking or to look at maps for parking or other issues please go to marchonrnc.org. We hope to see you there with your friends and family! US Out Now! Money for Human Needs Not for War! Say NO to the Republican Agenda!
