Please share widely.

"…And Pinnocchio ('G.W.Bush')…his nose grew longer
and longer…"
A decentralized evening protest on March 12th at 7
pm against George H.W. Bush ("Geppetto") and
Madeleine Albright ("Mad Not-So-Bright").
The event is intended be a build-up protest to the
March 17th @ 12 pm - Hollywood & Vine protest. It is
in keeping with the nationwide ramp-up in March civic
dissent & disobedience actions. Protesters will
gather between 7:00-7:30 pm. Please give yourself
plenty of time to gather and park near or at the
Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Downtown LA. We are
focusing on the Bush/Madeline Albright March 12th
protest action as an important step in the buildup to
the March 17th ANSWERLA action at Hollywood & Vine.

Peace Now,
