Hello Jacque: It was good to see you at the 34th and Archer peace action yesterday especially knowing you all had just done some good work at Stearn's office. More people showed up after you left. They included folks from Labor Party, Green Party, VFP, Unitarians, etc. All in all we had about 20 people waving signs before the day’s action was over.

Subject: [codepinkgainesville] Protest Summary FL Cong Stearns office 8/21
Florida republican Congressman Stearns CLOSED HIS OFFICE, locked it tight, when he found out we were coming to visit yesterday. He continues to refuse to schedule an appointment with us. I can only assume that Stearns thinks we are a very scary crew of folks here in Gainesville Fl; yesterday's bunch included The Labor Council, Veterans for Peace, NOW, MoveOn, and CodePINK. I carried a pink umbrella and had a pink slip with Stearns name on it.
We have "birddogged" Stearns here in Gainesville for the last two years on his support of the war, his taking $140,000 in donations from the pharmaceutical industry, his refusal to support HR676 health care; well, Stearns just ALWAYS get it wrong! There is a big photo of Dick Cheney hanging on the wall in his office here in Gainesville.
About 60 of us showed up yesterday at his office, even though he closed it BECAUSE WE WERE COMING -- the Gainesville Sun, The Alligator (UF student paper); the local TV20 showed up. Everyone signed a PINK "While You Were Out" telephone memo and we marched to the main office of the Farm Bureau where his Gainesville office is located and we left the messages with the desk clerk (under the watchful eye of 3 cops). I left him a PINK SLIP (ladies lingerie) with his name on it! The elderly male desk clerk assured me he would give Stearn's the pink slip!
