--
The goal is to make these big protests. We will demand that Bush ask the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to implement wholesale energy price caps immediately!! For more info: www.powertothepeople.org

Help make this protest! Show up, bring signs and props, wear costumes etc...
Ideas for the protest include:
*The "Ratebusters" (last week members of Global Exchange dressed as "Ratebusters", a la the 1980's movie Ghostbusters, and received great press at the PUC meeting in San Francisco) We can sing revised verses to the "Ghostbustes" theme song.
*It would be great to find a few people who could be on stilts, dressed as electric transmitter towers wearing "energy rate caps" caps.
*People wearing pig masks with the names of the energy generators and GWBush masks.
* A bed (a big bed), (anyone have a bed they could bring?) with money and energy generator logos all over it. Then we can show Bush and the Pigs in bed together where they have been all along. Bush could have his shirt off, wearing a Texas cowboy hat!
*People could bring big signs with pigs wearing "Rate Caps" caps. Or- Real pigs? Why not! How about with rate caps on them! We see big cartoons with GWBush faces!
* We would like people to bring lots of caps with "Ratebusters - Rate Caps" written on them. We're also looking for more great ideas.

WHAT A FUCKING IDIOT.

the post above (the one that says things I WILL NOT REPEAT even to ID it)



If this is not removed, I am worried for the safety of all of us planning to go to the Hotel on Tuesday.



I address agents of the State here, who are monitoring this site:



THE POST IS NOT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ANYONE BUT THE SICK IGNORAMOUS WHO POSTED IT.



TO USE THIS AS A JUSTIFICATION TO SQUELCH ANY FREE SPEECH ACTIVITIES HERE IN LA WOULD BE A DISASTER!



I suspect it has been posted in a deliberate attempt to provide exactly sush a rationale for supression of our Free Speech rights on Tuesday and around the entire upcoming tour of the Shrub through our region.



I stand in total dissasscociation from this sickeningly stupidpiece of trash.



peace, struggle and upfront honest committment to nonviolence!
