They'll Take Manhattan. A29 CP

Sarah Ferguson, VV | For many activists, access to the city’s largest park has become a point of principle. "I think this was a case where the people led, and the leaders followed," says A.K. Gupta, an editor at The Indypendent who's been monitoring online calls to retake the park. The Web has been awash in talk of revolt, from anarchists lambasting UFPJ as "liberal sell-outs," to the libertarians who’ve called for a noon rally on the Great Lawn under the banner, "The only permit we need is the First Amendment." more...  8 Comments

Poll: 83 Percent Don't Want RNC In NY: Shut It Down!

CRIMES AND CORRUPTIONS OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER NEWS | The nation and entire world will be watching NYC during the Republican National Convention. With that many eyes on us it is imperative New Yorkers send a loud message-- one that strongly challenges the current Administration’s policies and shows the Republican Party that we have had enough.

sabate | Heads up. Latest missive from UFPJ.

(from the Open Newswire): " Our plan to hold a safe and legal march past Madison Square Garden remains firmly in place. But we are increasingly concerned about the viability of a rally on the West Side Highway, because of the following developments."
"We will be holding a press conference tomorrow, August 10, to announce our next steps. Our goal for August 29 remains what it has always been: to bring the largest and most representative number of people possible out into the streets in opposition to the Bush agenda. We are committed to having a safe, legal, and peaceful protest, accessible to all."

You can contact UFP&J and let them know what you think here
