In Los Angeles-GW Bush Brokers Bloody Bucks for Death

In Los Angeles-GW Bush Brokers Bloody Bucks for Death

From Chuck Anderson Rancho El Aguacate, Anaheim, CA 1984 Century City, Ca June 27, 2003 Hi Winston, Thanks for a good report on the fund raising visit of the carpet bagging, civilian bombing, war criminal, the butcher of Iraq and afghanistgan, GW Bush. Glad that you gave the son of a whore, mother fucker the finger at his limo and a warm California greeting to Burlingame. Here in Orange County, we chartered our own ANSWER bus and took a group of about 40 peace activists from Bristol & Anton, Costa mesa. it was an old school bus and the trip was rough and bumpy. One of our comrades, Bill rode his old bicycle to Century City. it took him seven hours. When we arrived, there were a few hundred energetic, rowdy, lively, screaming, chanting protesters-young and old.The crowd soon grew to several thousand and ANSWER had blocked off the Avenue of the Stars, in front of the Century Plaza Hotel. We were denied a police permit so our legal council, Jim Lafferty of the National Lawyer's Guild took the LA Police Dept to court and won the battle. There was a group of some 30 pro-Bush demonstraters near by with a large banner saying, "you are not the ANSWER." This was a historic demonstration. The most beautiful and inspiring aspect was the revolutionary spirit and militancy of our group who loudly chanted and shouted anti Bush statenmebts for three hours. The crowd quickly grew from hundreds to several thousands I was able to greet every strong spiirited counscientious peace activists and socialist, anti-imperialist, progressive friend and comrade who ever corossed my path in Southern California. Everyone was there. I volunteered to be a moniter for ANSWER and Scott assigned me and Roy Wong to guard the loud speeakers. To keep folks from bumping and leaning on them. Right behind me was a group of Black Block Anarchrists, who appeared to be teenagers with adult leaders wearing black hoods and masks. Who knows why they hide their faces? One was wearing a RCP newspaper over his/her mask. This was planned to be a peaceful family oriented protest. The anarchists had other plans. It seemed that this group was edgeing the police on to an all out violent confrontation. They were swearing at the police who had surrounded them and giving them the bird in their faces. There were numerous people with video cameras documenting the standoff. There were many small children and senior citizens in the immedoiate area and the Black Block group was taking away the focus of the anti Bush protest. It was aboutt to turn it into a violent riot and puting all the well behaved protesters in violent jepordy. My question is why did these masked people attend our demonstration? Were they undercover police or agent provocatours? They did not protest Bush. This was a declared and acquired police permit peaceful event. What was their intent of causing a battle with the police? The riot SWAT frocked police responded to the group and formed an attack squad line of some 15 cops directly in front of me. My concern was for the kids and ANSWER's expensive rented speakers. This was a most strange group of police, perhaps, they were the nerd reserves because they were small people, perhaps 4 1/2 feet tall, near midgets, in a group of eight who surrounded the masked troublemakers who had done nothing more than insults and finger gestures to the fuzz. The nerd SWAT cops in front of me put their hands on the battons and drew them out halfway. I then planned by avenuye of escape. I was sandwiched between the two groups of nerd police pigletts, pigs & hogs and the Black Block kids who were a few feet behind me. Suddenly, Preston Wood forced his way into the middle of the mentioned mob muddle. Mr Jim Lafferty jumped the police tape and began to address the leader of the threatening SWAT police. That 's the end of the story. Everyone kind of dispersed and the cops moved away shoving the clubs back fully into their pig skin belts. Preston and Jim defused the threatening situaton as the masked men and the Cops all backed off. Who knows if perhaps they were not all police & police agents wearing different uniforms? Why were they there? For troublemaking? A little before the above mention incident a group of antiwar activists unfurrled a banner from a balcony of the hotel where Bush was speaking- It was pink with three foot letters and said something like, "BUSH-YOU LIED, PEOPLE DIED-NOW YOU ARE FIRED." The crowd went wild with screaming, vociferious anti-imperialists glee and enthausiasm. There were a hundred drums pounding. Our shouts could be heard to the ocean. Soon, a group of Secret Service goons busted in the door of the rented hotel suite and began to pull up and destroy the banner. Our boos were as loud as the previous cheers. John Parker and many other invited speakers gave personal attacks against the war on Iraq, unemployment, the occupation and muderous attacks against Palestine, racism. tax giveaways to millionares and immigrant bashing. The antiwar, anti-imperialists chanting continued for hours. Bush cut his speach 25 minutes short. He was in a hurry to get out of town. He had pandered 00 per plate of kosher hot dogs and non kosher hamburgers. No Freench Fries. He left town fast and decided to spend the night at his ranch in Texas and not have to hear our chants all night. Traffic came to a crawl on the 405 Freeway for three hours and the Secret Service closed down LAX Airport. The unelected Bush had charged some pig rich Republicans and Christian/Jewish Zionists a ,000 fee for poising in a photo opportunity with the bomber of the craddle of civilization. We chased his shamelss, warmonger entourage back to Texas and to the ranch where he counts the cash but refuses to count the killing of thousands of innocent Iraqui and Afghanistan innocents. How about counting the US Military dead and wounded? Where are Ben Laden and Saddam? Perhaps, laying low at the Texas ranch, now a safe place for many war criminals. Happy Birthday Winston! Chuck Anderson
