<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Your government, on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous and utterly illegitimate war in Iraq, with other countries in their sights.<br><br>
Your government is openly torturing people, and justifying it.<br><br>
Your government puts people in jail on the merest suspicion, refusing them lawyers, and either holding them indefinitely or deporting them in the dead of night.<br><br><br>
Your government is moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule.<br><br>
Your government suppresses the science that doesn't fit its religious, political and economic agenda, forcing present and future generations to pay a terrible price.<br><br><br>
Your government is moving to deny women here, and all over the world, the right to birth control and abortion.<br><br>
Your government enforces a culture of greed, bigotry, intolerance and ignorance.<br><br>
People look at all this and think of Hitler — and they are right to do so. The Bush regime is setting out to radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way, and for generations to come. We must act now; the future is in the balance.<br><br>

Dammit...if I'd only known sooner. maybe I'll keep DS out of school and tell the teacher why. Then again, i don't want to cause too much of a stir (I've gotten some flack already because he's not "fully" vaxed, doesn't say the pledge, wears "political" shirts and nail polish....etc)...all I need is a truancy officer called. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>
Maybe I'll show this to my high school sister, and she can pass the word around. Then I could write an article for the local newspaper about it. Raise some awareness.<br><br>

I tried the link and it says the site has been closed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"> Am I not allowed to know where to go?<br>
I assume the University of MN will have something, I'll call my sister and see.

I ALWAYS wondered that! There have been at least 5 rallies/marches/protests in the pst few months that I would have gone to had they been on the weekend. And there are so many reasons--more people have off work, the kids have no school, train tickets are less (no peak hours on weekends), etc.

So what happened? Did anyone put down their beers and quit partying long enough to protest? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

You'd have to be from madtown or have gone to school at UW Madison to understand. That's ok, I forgive you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

No, actually THOUSANDS of young people (in NY alone!) voiced their opinions and were basically blown off by mainstream media, probably in part because of views like the one you just expressed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:
