    Turn Your Back On Bush

    "Let's start from the start: Inauguration Day.

    On January 20th, 2005, we're calling for a new kind of action. The Bush administration has been successful at keeping protesters away from major events in the last few years by closing off areas around events and using questionable legal strategies to outlaw public dissent. We can use these obstacles to develop new tactics. On Inauguration day, we don't need banners, we don't need signs, we just need people.

    We're calling on people to attend inauguration as they are: members of the public. Once through security and at the procession, at a given signal, we'll all turn our backs on Bush. A simple, clear and coherent message.

    If you attack the establishment long enough and hard enough, they will make you a member of it.

    Lots of people are going to DC to protest. There are already plans of major amounts of police presence, and national guard or something..as in the thousands..but that doesn't keep a good protester down.LOL.
    Don't read what isn't there.

    why ? i think it would say a lot more than a banner and heckling. It's too easy to dismiss chanters as "radicals".

    Just my opinion.

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    As soon as he gets sworn in everybody should start crying. I wonder how they would react to that?

    He's been making all of us cry for 4 years, so i doubt it would have any effect

    Sounds like a plan, if there is a good enough turn out that is.

    I agree. We don't carry banners, or heckle or yell when we attend protests. We tend to talk to many people there, listen to speakers, take pictures, etc. We are usually with the Veterans for Peace group, as Scroff is a member. I don't like any "group mentality" type of thing, never have.
    I despise Bush, but the back-turning thing just ain't my thing.

    I've been in a similar action like that in when it was 50 year memorial for WWII
    it does not work
    the crowd is too large - the coordination is messy
    and if you do it at "the climax" do you think anybody notices.....+where are the press focused on?

    for this type of Back to Bush action to work youd need the people on the stage to turn their backs.....or atleast 95% of the crowd

    anyway i dont intend on buying a ticket to the us for this reason
    at all
