ANSWER Coalition, promoter of some of the largest. most successful Wash DC demonstrations, is threatened with ,000 fines for posters promoting upcoming demos. This threatens ALL interests that may hope to gather peacefully to express grievances to officals and mainstream public.
GOVERNMENT ATTACKS ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT
Take Action to Defend Free Speech
In an unprecedented action, the ANSWER Coalition today received citations fining the organization ,000 for the placement of posters announcing the September 15 March on Washington DC. The fines come after a campaign led by
FOX news calling for the DC government to take action against those putting up posters for the September 15 demonstration.
They have told us that we have 72 hours to remove every poster, or the fines will go into effect. Tens of thousands of dollars in additional fines are
expected in the coming days. Bush's Interior Department is threatening similar actions against ANSWER. The September 15 posters are legal and conform to city regulations. We will not allow the government's intimidation tactics to slow our outreach or silence the antiwar movement.
We can stop this effort to repress the antiwar movement with your help.
This is part of a systematic effort to disrupt the organizing for the September 15 Mass March that is timed to coincide with the report of General Petraeus and the debate in Congress on the Iraq war. Iraq war veterans and
their families will lead this dramatic march from the White House to the Congress on September 15. The last thing the government wants is to see the
streets of Washington DC fill up with throngs of anti-war protesters right in the middle of the debate. But we will not be stopped. Organizing for this demonstration is taking place in cities and towns throughout the country.
Buses and car caravans are coming from 90 cities and towns.
Please send a letter today:
to Washington DC Mayor (Adrian M. Fenty) and to the Director of DC Department of Public Works (William O. Howland, Jr.) demanding an end to the
fines, harassment and repression of the anti-war movement. We have a right to publicize the September 15 March. Fining the anti-war movement tens of thousands of dollars for putting up Free Speech-protected literature makes a
mockery out of the First Amendment.
TAKE ACTION TO DEMAND THE FINES BE LIFTED!
The best way to take action is to call the Director of Department of Public
Works, William O. Howland, Jr. at 202-673-6833, and the Mayor of DC, Adrian
Fenty, at 202-724-8876. You can also send a letter or fax by clicking this
We'd suggest saying something along the lines of: "I am writing to protest the fines levied against the ANSWER Coalition for putting up posters for the September 15th March on Washington. The government does not fine politicians who put up campaign posters, or commercial and business interests that plaster Washington DC with posters. It is outrageous that the city, in concert with FOXNews, are attempting to suppress the antiwar movement. Stop the harassment. Stop the fines."
