libertarians, free-marketers, in Rochester? [14 Sep 2004|04:31am]

Are there any libertarians, or people who are for libertarianism, or propertarianism, here? In Rochester? I just came back from the Ludwig von Mises Institute, and am really excited about talking with, and exchanging ideas with, fellow libertarians. I'm trying to start a sort of group meeting for Rochester-libertarians (I'd consider myself the most radical of that group, anarcho-capitalist or propertarian).

war resistance forum [03 Jun 2005|11:10am]

“When Resistance is Right”

Saturday, June 4
4 p.m.
First Unitarian Church
(220 South Winton Road)
FREE and open to the public

A Panel on War Resistance

~ Victor Paredes, brother of Iraq War resister Pablo Paredes
~ David Cline, national pres., Veterans for Peace and coordinator, "Bring
Them Home Now"

Victor Paredes is the brother of Pablo Paredes, a Navy enlisted sailor
who refused to deploy with his Iraq-bound troop ship in December 2004
because of his opposition to the war. Victor has been touring the country
speaking for his brother, who recently faced court martial for his act of
resistance. In a major, unprecedented victory, the Navy judge refused to
send Pablo Paredes to jail, finding instead that:

“...any service member has reasonable cause to believe that the wars in
… Afghanistan and Iraq were illegal.”

David Cline served in Vietnam in 1967 as a rifleman with the 25th
Infantry Division. He was awarded three Purple Hearts, a Bronze Star, and
other medals. He is also disabled from the wounds he received. He was an
early member of Vietnam Veterans Against the War and is currently a VVAW
national coordinator and president of Veterans For Peace. David is also
on the coordinating committee for "BringThem Home Now," a campaign of
military families, veterans, active duty personnel, reservists and others
opposed to the ongoing war in Iraq.

Come hear these two nationally prominent speakers.
Learn about war resistance and the need for our support.
And please help spread the word.

LGBT Issues inside Rochester City Schools... [21 May 2005|05:11pm]

Hello Everyone:

I live in Buffalo, but grew up in Rochester and attended Rochester City Schools from 3rd until 12th grades.
I graduated from Wilson Magnet High School in 1997. Eight years ago, there was no mention of gay people in my high school whatsoever. It was assumed we were not there. I was very much closeted in high school, but when I got to college I became less so. When I found the same situation at Canisius, I started a gay-straight alliance there.

I have been in correspondence with a woman who works inside a city high school and has been experiencing harassment because of the GSA club she started there two years ago. I am sorry to hear that things have not improved (and may have even gotten worse) in the eight years since I’ve been a student in the RCSD.

Please, please please take a few moments to read her story, and to write letters to the D&C/City/Empty Closet regarding this issue… Thanks.

As many of you know, PETA is currently campaigning against KFC, trying to get the company to adopt some minimal animal welfare guidelines for the chickens who are raised and killed for their restaurants. To learn more about the campaign, please visit http://www.KentuckyFriedCruelty.com.

As part of this campaign, PETA will be holding a demonstration in Rochester this coming Friday, August 20th. I hope you all can make it!

Here are the details of the demo:

Friday, August 20th
12:00-1:00 PM
KFC located at 600 E. Main Street
Rochester, NY

We will provide all the leaflets, posters, and stickers needed for the demo, so all you’ll need to bring is yourself! For more information, please contact Joe Hinkle at JoeHinkle@peta.org or 757-693-8333. I hope you can make time to attend this important demonstration and send a strong message to KFC that their cruelty to animals will not be tolerated.

Thanks for everything you to do help animals.


I definitely will be there! Please pass this around to anyone you might think is interested! :)

I am so happy that I found a local anti-war group.

I was in anti_war but it just isn't doing it for me.

I think I needed something more local.

I come to say hello. I'm from Churchville, but go to school in Brighton, and was hoping there was still information on any protests happening (if there still are). I was in the Peacemakers of Schoharie County back when I went to school out there, and we did a protest every Saturday at like 11amish, and spent a good hour or two out there picketing. I was hoping that they still have them around here.

*crossposted in rochester*

for those interested and planning on attending the antiwar rally 4pm today at the liberty pole-

it is the position of RCAN that we will NOT be taking the streets during the march (which will be going to the genessee valley hospital). because the message for this demonstration is about healthcare, and how we should be taking care of the healthcare crisis at home (more than 11 million children about healthcare) instead of bombing iraqi civilians, and we feel that this is a very serious issue. we are not backing down from taking the streets entirely, we just do not feel that that is the best tactic for this particular rally.

sorry for the crosspost.

did anyone see the Channel 8 news tonight?

the rochester police are complaining about the protests and asking us to stop having them because we take up "valuable police resources." which is retarded because we are not asking them to be there, and we certainly don't need them to be. my friend pat was on there for a bit explaining why we would not stop.
