Push Bush Out - Rome No Global

:: Push BUSH out! ::
June 9th 07 :: No War & No Bush Day

Against Bush and against the multilateral war of Prodi government "You’re scared, you’re damn scared, you’ll be scared, you’ll be scared to death!"

A careful listener of the words from the texan thief - better known as georgdabbliù Bush - is able to catch this always silent, always untold, but at the same time always spoken subtext. The texan psychopath has a bunch of partners speaking the same language. Sarko, for example, never stops reminding French people that they have to be scared, scared of banlieues, scared of the "racaille". The "comrades" of the Pd learnt the lesson as well: "we are all terribly afraid of gipsies, of prostitutes, of migrants"; it seems that there is only one complaint to be known.

Was the November 2006 midterm election an epic political massacre or
just a routine midterm brawl? In the week after the Democratic
victory, partisan spinmeisters offered opinions as contradictory as
those of the protagonists in Rashomon, Kurosawa's famously
relativistic account of rape and murder. On the liberal side, Bob
Herbert rejoiced in his New York Times column that the `fear-induced


The Change You Want to See is thrilled to host author and activist Steve Duncombe for a presentation and discussion of his acclaimed manifesto "Dream: Re-imagining Progressive Politics in an Age of Fantasy”. Beyond talk, this is also an applied strategy session – irrigate the irrational, practice your “spectacular vernacular”, exercise your imagination as we craft a creative street action in support of the Coalition of Imakolee Workers' campaign against McDonald's.

BYOB encouraged, as brainstorm and beer are like butter and bread.
