Like the flags that went up on overpasses after September 11th, political banners are entirely legal and constitutionally protected speech. So long as they’re non-commercial, safely posted political messages, it’s not just your right to put up signs, it’s your right to put up as many of them as you want, as big as you want, and your right to use public property to do it. At least that’s my theory. – The Freeway Blogger

This coming Saturday, October 27, people from all walks of life will gather in 11 cities around the country in a national expression of the breadth and depth of antiwar sentiment in this nation. For many people, it will be their first step in transforming their antiwar feelings into antiwar action. Regional actions will enable much larger numbers of people to participate.
This is organized by United for Peace and Justice, they always do a good job. Please come out.
