Stop Government Attacks Against the Anti-War Movement!Take Action to Defend Free Speech
ANSWER ^ | August 14, 2007 | ANSWER

Posted on 08/14/2007 8:41:12 PM PDT by mdittmar

n an unprecedented action, the ANSWER Coalition today received citations fining the organization $10,000 for the placement of posters announcing the September 15 March on Washington DC. The fines come after a campaign led by FOX news calling for the DC government to take action against those putting up posters for the September 15 demonstration.

They have told us that we have 72 hours to remove every poster, or the fines will go into effect. Tens of thousands of dollars in additional fines are expected in the coming days. Bush’s Interior Department is threatening similar actions against ANSWER. The September 15 posters are legal and conform to city regulations. We will not allow the government's intimidation tactics to slow our outreach or silence the antiwar movement.

We can stop this effort to repress the antiwar movement with your help.

This is part of a systematic effort to disrupt the organizing for the September 15 Mass March that is timed to coincide with the report of General Petraeus and the debate in Congress on the Iraq war. Iraq war veterans and their families will lead this dramatic march from the White House to the Congress on September 15. The last thing the government wants is to see the streets of Washington DC fill up with throngs of anti-war protesters right in the middle of the debate. But we will not be stopped. Organizing for this demonstration is taking place in cities and towns throughout the country. Buses and car caravans are coming from 90 cities and towns.

Please send a letter today to Washington DC Mayor (Adrian M. Fenty) and to the Director of DC Department of Public Works (William O. Howland, Jr.) demanding an end to the fines, harassment and repression of the anti-war movement. We have a right to publicize the September 15 March. Fining the anti-war movement tens of thousands of dollars for putting up Free Speech-protected literature makes a mockery out of the First Amendment.

Why do we want to do this?

Maybe AlQaeda will pop another one on us just a few days before then.

I think it’s appropriate to provide a link to your earlier post that concerns ANSWER and its ties to terrorist organizations:

What? Did they round up half a dozen disgruntled vets with dishonorable & bad conduct discharges? Good for them. Will Private Scott Thomas Beauchamp and those yellow-bellyed deserters in Canada be there?

You have the right to BUY advertising and to convince socialist store owners to put your signs in their windows.

You DON’T have the right to claim exemption from regulations against wheatpasting up posters on the sides of public and private property.

Read the posts, it’ll turn your stomach. Here’s some examples:

28. The more things stay the same, the worse they f*cking get. I still attest that 50% of police are merely ex-jocks and bullies who joined up to legally continue their bullsh*t. This photo sure isn’t doing much to prove me wrong on THAT one, is it?

29. I suspect you are correct, and I fear the same is true for the armed forces. Legalizing brutality and murder.

But I thought the lefties supported the troops?! LOL

What do you expect anyhow concerning the actions of ANSWER memebers? and the rest of them.

You know the LEADERS aren’t doing the “Dirty-Hard-Work” like putting up Posters/Fliers- they are getting the :

A) HIGH SCHOOLERS and B)College FROSH: Who are All IDEALISTIC in the first place- and Easily Woodwinked by the Socialists in the second. And

C) The usual Unemployeed-DC Homeless, ANARCHISTS and Street People they gave 20$ each to justgo around putting fliers on Telephone poles!

Remember too-when it comes to Knowing the Pychological TRICKS on how to use people and spread PROPAGANDA-

-The Communists and Socialists have had YEARS experience-with a lot of Socilaist Backers with Big Bucks to spend!

Same thing as a Commie. Didn't Hippies stay at COMMUNes? COMMUNes, COMMUNist? There is no difference.

answer is the same kind of commie group that stole our resolve during Vietnam. Our Troops didn't lose Vietnam, the people here at home lost it by letting commies steal their resolve.

I will be there to say that I will never waver, tire, falter, or fail.

Peace and freedom will prevail - W

Yeah, I remember this bunch of hypocrites well from Nam. Talk about junk news and media. They got every mainstream media to sniff their tails. Same now with this group.
I’d say, send them over there to see if they can convince the murdering terrorists to quit killing innocent men, women, and children. Same as Nam. Innocent villagers mutilated and murdered because they wouldn’t suck up to the Cong.
It hasn’t changed a bit. This bunch needs to shut up and help the brothers fighting.
I’d bet not one has every tasted mud in a rice patty or lived in cold, miserable rain for days at a time. I’d bet all they’ve ever done is watch TV and go get their burgers.
They should just shut up and go home. After all, who’s taking care of their kids? They aren’t, that’s for sure. Talk about child abuse!
