Inauguration Day Action

I have had a distaste for the marching, slogan chatting, sign waving form of protest. It always feels a little mob like and that can be scary. I also have some doubts about their ability to effect change in our country at this time. But at the same time I continue to feel the need to register my dissent in some way. For those reason’s this action caught my eye

I ran across the Turn Your Back On Bush site earlier this month, and I do have some doubts about the ability to pull this off, but even so it is the only thing I’ve found about Inauguration Day Actions that I think I would willing to be part of. Particularly I ended up looking at it today again because a friend of mine pointed me to it. He has a connection to some people working on the action, and helped calm my fears that it was just some random angry teen with good website design skills.

    Flash back to MoveOn.org call party. I know those have a more official name, that we even used. But I forgot, extended brain fart that started mid-December. Sounds like it has possibility, there is even a campus organizer. Colgate seems to be the only other one that is practicing this. See, this is the type of activism that I love, I think it’s because of the symbolism behind it, just seems to make a much more profound message. El, I see possibility, if you need help organizing this on our campus, I’ll be more than happy to help out. It would be just like “old times.”

    Well, I’m not sure if I’m ready for a road trip to DC in a week and a half. But maybe we could put something together on campus. …. mmmm….. oh the possibilities…..
