Inauguration 2009

Plans for Inauguration Day - Jan 20, 2009:

Meet the progressive community at McPherson Square on Jan 20 all day long: 15th St NW between K and I. We'll have heated tents, lots of information and literature on ways to get involved and MAKE the change we want to see. We're printing up signs that allow you to think about what YOU want to see in the new year. Come pick up a sign and be part of the movement!

Want to be part of a street team to hand out signs and flyers to ensure that the Inauguration crowds who come to be inspired leave with the resources they need to get involved? Email or call the Peace Center at 202-234-2000.

This Inauguration Day will closely follow Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday, and it is in his spirit that we demand:

1. Immediate withdrawal from Iraq and a commitment to take care of returning veterans.
2. A halt to the post-9/11 erosion of human rights and civil liberties: repeal the USA PATRIOT Act, end torture and restore habeas corpus.
3. Redirection of tax dollars toward real action on housing, healthcare, climate change and other human needs.

  1. Barack Obama will do NOTHING for you. Not one single thing. Obama is a corporate dog (piece of shit etc). Obama is seeking to continue military involvement in the middle east, in support of the Patriot act (he is really, no kidding) and while he will redirect tax revenue, it wont be to help anyone except for is billionaire buddies. Democrats are just another side of the corporate coin. You apparently haven't been reading the news if you expect Obama to take us out of the middle east. Obama has made accusations about people supporting the Patriot act (habeas corpus etc) but has never said that he will repeal any of that. Obama is not in favor of universal healthcare but rather giving insurance companies more money (the problem in the first place!).

    I'm sorry to vent like this but Facebook is promoting you and I think that you'd better learn what's really at stake, EVERYTHING! There is no recovery from the Wall Street Bailout situation (none) and Barack Obama will do nothing to strengthen anyone's economy because *drum roll* he cant! The USSR split up for the same reason! (except they were prepared)
