Protesters plan for the future while they march for peace
Protests in the Eugene area will become more aggressive today. A group of citizens from the Eugene-Springfield area have organized multiple direct actions of civil disobedience and resistance, targeting government facilities helping to conduct the war in Iraq, according to a press release.
Chabarek said they want to pressure Congress to cut funding of the war and “embarrass members of Congress that are supporting this brutal war.”
(I'm all for embarrassing politicians but how do you embarrass someone with no shame?)
“If we do not take back the U.S. Congress, this will continue until this man is gone from power two and a half years from now,” DeFazio said. “Focus on the election.”
What will continue Peter? The war? If congress goes democrat are we going to surrender immediately? What are you talking about?
As for the protests being "agressive", I sure wouldn't park my car anywhere near downtown Eugene today...
