Santa Cruz, California: The 11th of Every Month

Last night, May 11th I went to the clock tower at 5pm with my sign and camera.

Generally on Fridays there are a group of people protesting the Iraq war and the return of our troops. This particular Friday, the group was smaller than usual, people driving by seemed supportive. I spoke with one man on a bicycle who conveyed the fear many people feel around the 9/11 issue. Discussion of politics, at work, is avoided simply because people need to keep their job.

It would therefore, be understandable that many who support our cause don't want to stand on the street corner with a sign for the world to see. It's that simple. If a poll were taken at a rally, those who question the events surrounding 9/11, would most likely fall under the "Self Employed" or "Retired" demographic. This, in it self, would reduce the number of people who support the cause dramatically.

I hope that any Santa Cruzians reading this can mark their calendars for the 11th day of every month and join us in front of the clock tower. There you can sign up with the group and hook into the weekly meetings.

Keep up the fight!

Good job Santa Cruz!

Bring home...


Actually, you can sign up with us now:

Good work Sis!

Good work sister! I missed the "bring home my master" the first time I I saw these photos, so I'm glad I looked again- it's a classic that should be sent to the Santa Cruz papers, USA today, etc.
Off topic: I thought this to be a fair assessment of the state we're in.
