all power to you from the US people

this IS what democracy looks like

YOU are what REAL democracy looks like

and this IS what democracy looks like, feels like, sounds like, and smells like! yet what you are now catching a glimpse of when you see the snipers atop roofs, and the police shutting you down is the REAL power of imperial ameriKKKa. the real might of american EMPIRE exerting its influence around the world. the real violence of a state out of control.

this is the Project for the New American Century unfolding exactly as it’s orchestrators intended. and the associated oppression you are feeling is what the NEW CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT in the us has been experiencing since the onslaught of the patriot act, and the weight of “homeland security” came on the heals of 9/11.

these are the acts of an administration which brought itself to power in a coup, so that a small elite can gain control of the earths last remaining resources by any means necessary.

Bush maybe the greatest danger for peace the earth has ever known, but behind him are even more insidious characters. WE, here in the US are fighting this. so PLEASE bear your brothers and sisters in the US in mind, we are large and we are vocal. however, just as the mainstream news does not present your voice to the american general public, the UK press appears to not show what is really emerging in the US. we have a real DEMOCRATIC movement for change here in the US, and we honor you today.

DIVERISTY & SOLIDARITY is our strength!

in the words of the ZAPATISTAS “democracia, libertad, justica, revolucion!”

peace from albuquerque, New Mexico – cradle of the nuclear weapons industry, and home to a budding vibrant PEACE & JUSTICE community.

US here... message getting through

Just wanted to let all you wonderful protester people know that you broke through the media barrier in the US here today. I just watched the ABC network's "Nightline" program which devoted a full 10-minute (hey that's huge here!) report to the British protests. I was amazed actually - lots of interviews with all types of Brits, people in the street, at the protests, parents of soldiers killed in Iraq, people explaining they weren't anti-American but anti-Bush and why. You did it!! I've never seen these networks devote anything more than a soundbite to this kind of thing before. Thanks to you a much larger percentage of the US public is now aware of the extent of feelings in the UK. And the resistance movement here is so excited by the example you've set (as they get plastic bullets rained on them at the FTAA protests in Miami).
Hugs and solidarity, you deserve it.
