LA Greens Also Endorsed

by Derek Saturday, Apr. 21, 2001 at 5:20 PM

Since the list is here, I thought it worth mentioning that the LA Greens also endorsed this action, and many of us will attend.

If you are reading this, but you're not planning on going tomorrow ... change your plans. We need you. We all need to stand together on this one. Don't just be a spectator. It's your world too. BE THERE.

Right now, 9-9:30am It is rainy and windy. What do we do? Is there any plan for what if, because at lease as of now "what if" is pouring in out in front of me.
