If you are like most Americans and myself personally, you are against the occupation/war/crusade that George Bush decided to start in Iraq. With no planning or care for the consequences, he failed miserably at being a Commander in Chief and our President in general. Now what are you going to do about it? Does sitting in your armchair yelling at the TV make you feel uncomfortable deep down inside? Well then come out to protest this Saturday and don't forget to dress up.
Once again, United for Peace and Justice is organizing the events. Now you are completely free to take out your old hippie attire or Ramones t-shirt and come down to the south side of Union Square at 11am on Saturday. Plenty of people will be wearing all sorts of costumes to show their displeasure of George Bush and his war. Now some of you have looked at the sea of liberal oddities in protests past and shook your head. Some people even detest hippies (though I have no idea why) but they hate the war more. Well, now there is something out there for the well-dressed among us.
From The Seminal:
This Saturday, October 27th, United for Peace and Justice will be holding simultaneous protests against the Iraq war in 11 US cities. Serious Change supporters will be attending protests in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Orlando, and Chattanooga, Tennessee dressed in professional attire. We stand in full solidarity with all other antiwar activists, but we believe that a professional appearance projects seriousness and determination to the Bush administration as well as the American public.
Our protest action on October 27th will build on our success at the antiwar march on September 15th, where even our small numbers provoked a large and positive response from other protesters, media, online communities at websites such as reddit.com, and the public. As we dramatically expand our numbers for this Saturday’s protest, we will once again demonstrate the power that online organizing has to bring about change at the street level.
Serious Change demands the same results as everyone out there protesting against a war that should not have been started in the first place. So if you want to look nice and speak out at the same time, check out their site here and prepare to show up with me in NYC or in several other cities across the country.
