National Mobilization to End the Occupation in Iraq

Bush and Cheney are in the process of handing off to Congress their current Iraq war occupation and their future war with Iran .

Always a GOP affair, it is now in the hands of DINO's. Vote by vote, the so-called Democratic Congress betrays the wishes of the people by refusing to shrug off this unneeded, illegal, and infamous burden. It is time - past time - to take it to the streets.

What good do demonstrations do? I don't know. But I am not in the mood to do good. These are not the times to make nice.

But it was a nice and mellow interlude in Santa Barbara. No tear gas, but a little burning hemp, drums, guitars, signs, smiles and short speeches served up in a light drizzle.

This was a National Mobilization

With a focused message.
