9 am Meet Up: CODEPINK House
712 5th Street NE, 20002 - between G and H (Union Station Metro)
George W. Bush's administration has pushed us to the brink of a constitutional crisis. The checks and balances that undergird our democracy are no longer. Wake up America, it's our time to defend and preserve the Constitution, our founding document, before we're no longer allowed. The day's activity will remind us that everything that has been taken away or atrophied can be returned and renewed. This is our moment to lament, protest, wail, mourn and rage. Let our tears, laughter and songs drown the failures of our government. Let's renew our faith that real democracy and social justice are possible. Congress has not represented us. The Dept of Justice and its Security branches have not protected us, the Executive Branch has lied to us, taxes have underserved us, the Dept of State has failed us, the Pentagon has cheated us, and the courts are not separate...The "heroic medicine" to heal and protect our nation can only come when true patriots act. Get inspired, walk, swirl, yell, dance and sing what you expect from your government.
