Freedom Plaza I faced & challenged racism/white supremacy, sexism/patriarchy, classism, heterosexism & eventually was kicked off the island; then I offered workshops as I drove to CA:“Anti-Racism Geared for White Occupiers”; “NO DRONES” "Successes and Pitfalls of OWS"

Turning up the heat.

It's time to turn up the heat. There are VERY important hearings coming up in D.C. and votes coming up the month of March

Congresspeople and Senators are HOME this week - the 19th thru the 25th, back in session on the 26th. We should be at their offices DAILY and at their homes as well, especially if they are not accessible at their offices.

Another important note: we've talked w/several Democrats, including Schumer, who scoff at the idea of Bush attacking Iran!!!! i.e. they are incredulous and adamant that bush would never attack Iran - talk about lala land. But the point is, even as the Senate was attempting to take a vote on whether to DISCUSS Bush's escalation, Bush himself was saying publicly and in the press that it didn't matter what Congress or the Senate says, he's escalating.

I think we need to print this out really big, rub Pelosi's (and any Democrat who is maintaining naivety) nose in this & express our incredulousness that she would even consider aligning w/Bush's funding for any reason.

Bbottom line - we HAVE to step up the pressure or we will not be able to face our own mirrors in the morning.

Still trying to find a house for us in D.C. for March, etc.
