A Progressive Alamedan

Various writings from a resident of Alameda regarding the political scene. The local perspective of local, state and national politics and a few other odds and ends of local concern. May not be particularly interesting to people outside of the Alameda area.

Thursday January 11: Protest at Alameda City Hall

The Alameda Peace Network (and MoveOn) is sponsoring a vigil and walk on Thursday, January 11th from 6:30-7:30 in front of Alameda City Hall.

The message is simple: NO. No escalation in Iraq. No Attacks on Iran.

We will gather at City Hall and then peacefully walk along Park Street to demonstrate our opposition to the Bush Administration's planned escalation of war in Iraq. We will be joining citizens across the country who our reaffirming the message of the November elections that Americans want troops withdrawn as quickly as possible from Iraq and want an end to preemptive wars, whether it be in Iraq, Iran or small countries like Somalia.

My take: Dear George, Dick, and company: Which part of "NO" don't you understand?
