A Shadow Protester Speaks

Mama P | (from the Open Newswire): "I am a shadow volunteer. I have made it completely through the background checks.

" This is funny as I have been involved in actions since 1993. I have been arrested once for vandelism, which resulted in a high profile slap suit by a prolife group. You would think at least SOME of this information would emerge during the "extensive back ground checks"

" Just yesterday I received an invitation to be on the "special welcoming committee" since I "impressed them so much at orientation" Basically I filled out all of the questions and told them that I was not only totally available but that I would be taking time off from work to dedicate to the convention.

" So I will have to attend about 8 hours (between this weekend and next) of training to qualify for this "special position"

" Suckers.

"So this is a message to anyone out there thinking about doing the shadow protest thing.

"I am a pretty normal looking (this is important, unfortunately) pissed off, mother of one, my greatest weapon is my brain and my ability to not show up.

New York Times Whines About Central Park

NYTimes | Boo-hoo-hoo "Making matters worse, there are reports that some demonstrators not affiliated with United Peace and Justice may "spontaneously" show up in Central Park on Aug. 29. All the protest organizers should denounce this idea. Bypassing the permit process in this way could lead to clashes between protesters and police. Civil disobedience should be used rarely, and a disagreement with the city over a protest venue does not warrant it." more...  9 Comments

Keystone Cops at the RNC: Street Theater in the Midst of Protest

People like imaginative scenery to look at. Especially the media. So, think about fun ways to monkeywrench the usual, and bring about some laughs at the same time. And if you are participating in the RNC protests, and are of draft age, document your protest activities in a conscientious objector file ( more...  1 Comments
