Bush Vetoes Tuesday
Santa Barbara Protests Wednesday

As you probably know, President Bush will veto the Iraq Accountability Act -- a bill to end the Iraq war and bring the troops home safely in 2008 -- most likely tomorrow. After all it's a perfectly fitting way for him to commemorate his Mission Accomplished speech, which he gave 4 years ago.

So, to show Americans want the war to end as soon as possible, on Wednesday, May 2 starting at 5:30 pm, local Santa Barbara residents will protest President Bush’s veto. Residents will gather on the 101 Freeway overpass at Micheltorena Street to make some noise expressing their strong disapproval of President Bush’s veto. This protest will help get the message out to the greater Santa Barbara area in a vivid and unequivocal manner at the height of evening rush hour traffic.

Feel free to join us--bring a noisemaker, a sign, and your indignation. Let the world know that President Bush does NOT speak for you. Local members of Political Action are organizing Wednesday’s event, which is one of several hundred around the country. If you live somewhere else, go join your local protest.

Mission Accomplished: has there been a more embarrassing moment in the last quarter century of American history?

Just make sure you don't put up a sign telling people to cancel their newspaper subscriptions.

Where did you find out about this protest? I would have attended if I had heard about it sooner.
