the film is really interesting. it is about Kerry's war and anti-war experiences but isn't about the campaign.

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

We will provide all the leaflets, posters, and stickers needed for the demo, so all you’ll need to bring is yourself!

IL POSTO (THE SOUND OF TRUMPETS/THE JOB, Ermanno Olmi, Italy 1961, 93 min., Italian with subtitles) This simple, comic, yet insightful story follows a young man through the initial months of his first job in a large, impersonal corporation. Director Olmi's (The Tree of Wooden Clogs) early documentary training is abundant in this late neorealist gem. The non-professional male and female leads won prizes for the film at both the 1961 Venice and London film festivals. For the full schedule go to http://www.rochesterlabor.org/filmschedule.html

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.
