On-going Demo and Petition

**Beginning JULY 4 - 7, in Lafayette Park outside the White House in Washington D.C.; The Change We Knead Now - BAKE BREAD FOR WORLD PEACE call for nonviolent civil action. Sit with us outside the White House and bake bread for World Peace. PETITION SIGNING. All Welcome. Everyone is invited to join us outside the White House in support of the changes Americans voted for in the historic election of Obama. We spent trillions to bail out America's corporations now it's time to bail out the American people. On July 4, 2009 we will start baking bread with the sun outside the White House and ask people to sign this petition: 1. Implement universal government-paid (Single- Payer) healthcare for all; 2. Free federal prisoner Leonard Peltier by executive order today; 3. Solar energy collectors available for every house; 4. Passenger trains connecting every city; 5. Organic gardening classes in every school; 6. Call for a global ceasefire. Sit with us outside the White House to inspire Obama to implement the proposals of this petition within a year. America voted for change, but so far corporate America has high-jacked our dreams. This is the moment when Obama's supporters can push his administration to fulfill the mandate of his victory. Obama has the power to begin implementing these six priorities by July 4, 2010, so consider joining us outside the White House.

SOUNDS REAL GOOD TO ME! I like that green program!  BMutiny T

Ongoing until July 2010! Actions you can take now or later. 

[I had trouble trying to sign their Petition On-line, and couldn't do it; there is some technical glitch, apparently. They have only 42 signatures; that's probably why, some technicality in signing! They rejected my e-mail address. I hope they get it all straightened out!]

Apparently, the demo is ONGOING, and not just until July 7th, as inferred above! They ask if you will use some of your vacation time to join in front of the White House..... [Warning: Washington D.C. is known to get fearsomely hot in the summer.... I have heard that staff from foreign countries got or used to get, "tropical pay"!]

We certainly can ALL of us, write to our Congresscritters about this campaign.......

============================
