Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! For now, I’ve returned from my Joiyssey to participate in the "revolution":I’ve been at many Occupy sites across the country:1st in D.C. 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"

We the people SHUT DOWN war!

I have repainted the back of my truck:

"Arise Women Arise"

We the people MUST shut down war!

'07 Summer of Protest: July 4th - Labor Day

SHUT DOWN: ports, docks, trains, bases, airports - wherever they are sending supplies to war

Bush, Congress, Blackwater,
Dems, Repubs, Exxon, Shell: they are making too much $$$ to end war

It is up to us: Rise Women Rise

I spent the whole day today preparing to get on the road – and half the nite. I have 2 small jobs that will pay for my fuel so I loaded them both up on the truck. Then I had to stock up on food from the Co-op; books from Charis, and books on tape from the library.

I went to the neighborhood hardware store to purchase paint and paint brushes, and the local copy place to get paper for flyers.

I had to stand on my daughter’s garbage can to paint the back of the truck! Her can is now splattered with pink, white & black splotches, not to mention a few dents! Hopefully, she won’t mind!

I have made flyers about the #59 campaign, the Summer of Protest, the oil benchmark, and the cost of the Iraq war.

I intend to join a protest in front on Ft. Campbell tomorrow in Tennessee, then go to Louisville for Memorial Day actions. Then I’ll head up to Chicago to make a delivery & connect with CodePINKers there.

Then it’s off to Wisconsin, Minnesota, North & South Dakota, thru Wyoming and Montana, then dropping down to Salt Lake City – and then home! I should probably be back to the Bay Area by the 6th or so of June.
