Democracy for Memphis Bush Protest

My good friend Brad Watkins asked me to share this with you:

DFM Bush Protest Primer

Please attend DFM Movie Night And Bush Protest primer on Thursday, June 29, 2006 at 7:00 PM. You can RSVP here.

Come join us as Democracy For Memphis, the Mid-South Peace and Justice Center and other local progressive groups as we join forces to plan a protest action to mark the arrival of President George W. Bush in Memphis this Friday, June the 30th. This action will highlight not only our concerns about the war in Iraq, but the war at home as well, and the cost of human life in this war.

Currently we are making arrangements for permits to protest across the street from Graceland from 10am until Noon Friday June 30th and wish to invite participation from any and all local progressives and like minded groups and associations. This Thursday night June 29th at 7pm at Reedmeisters at 3439 park ave, 327-1270, DFM will host a protest primer to make sure all those participating are prepared and aware of any important details in the way of location changes parking and how to protest within the law.

We also will be hosting a screening of the film STREET FIGHT which deals with a grassroots candidate for Mayor in New Jersey and his struggles with the local political machine.Several speakers will also attend to remind us of why we are progressives and why we are morally obligated to take action.So spread the word and come on out this Thursday night to prepare to give George Bush a warm Memphis welcome.
