Saturday's Buck Fush Mass Street Vigils distribute loads of truth to a public starved for facts by the corporate controlled media...

Buck Buck Neighborhood Mass Vigil had good turn outs Saturday. Quite a number of local activists rotated in and out as the vigils evolved. High numbers at various locations ran from 30's to lows of about 10. Lots of support from the communities, about 85 to 90% positive. No negative events, save a few one-fingered peace signs and some testosterone shouts. Got lots of flyers out and had great, brief discussions with waiting motorists and passersby. The weather was warm to hot, but nice in the shady spots with cool breezes. Truly amazing how fast the four hours flew by. In W. Covina the PD Watch Commander stopped by right at high noon and asked if it would be peaceful since their information had it that some 200 people would be coming to this vigil. He was reminded that we are Peace PPL and that it would be great if 200 folks did join us.....afterall, we are experienced, law-abiding street "peace-urchins" with over a year and a half of corner-time on our resumes.
The PD had their information wrong from the Internet, there were to be an estimated 200 vigils happening region wide. One report had a couple of black and whites showing up to tell vigilers that they had received complaints that demonstrators were making "gestures." The vigilers copped to the charge and showed the cops the gesture being made to passing motorists..peace brothers, sisters! Generally, the PD's were quite civil. West Covina is a bit skittish right now, particularly since the city recently had to cough up G's and make a public apology to Josh Connole, Brea Vigil Organizer, for false arrest. Josh is now free to switch his focus for wrongful arrest to the FBI. We all know it's not in the purview of Mueller's national cops to readily fess up to wrongdoing, particularly now that George Tenet is history with the CIA and both the agencies now appear to be in disarray.
Peace with Justice, Darellee, West Covina
Neighbors For Peace & Justice
