Hi Scott, Pierce, Peace Forum folks, VFP and CodePINKgainesville, and
Pals of Pinks!!
I think sign waving before UF football games is a great idea!
I got this email a little too late for today's game; however, in the future,
please count on me to SHOW UP, just send me a "head's up" on where.
Speaking of WHERE, can I throw my 2 cents worth in for Waldo Rd. and
University Av. or, even up at Waldo Rd. near the north end of the airport
at NE 53rd Av. in the median ???, sides of the road????..There is a
lot of "game day" traffic and we would reach a different "audience" I
traverse Waldo Rd. on game day and see all the peanut vendors and t-shirt
vendors and even the Waldo Baptist Church sells chicken dinners; the RVs are
abundant and the traffic is steady.
I am going to Heilbron Springs today in celebration of my 60th
birthday and, so sorry, but won't be at the Peace Forum. I look forward to
Pierce Butler's synopsis.
Whew! It's been a long, hot summer! Sep 15-29 will be
even hotter in DC. The CodePINK house is full, however, they have a
housing board and rideboard at their website: www.codepinkalert.org
I continue to pass along Dave Henderson's edress, washbus@...
or call 375-1927 in order to secure a seat on the bus for the Sep 15 DC
action. Folks have also been inquiring about train travel for that weekend
or the Sep 29 action, also. I've had about 5 calls
Here are a couple of my thoughts I would have liked to share with the Peace
Forum today, Sep 1, 2007 at 2 pm at the Civic Media Center:
Be sure to respond to Bill Nelson's latest email asking for your
input on issues. You can also call him and leave a message FOR FREE
through the Capitol Switchboard, 1-888-851-1879.
I think that a coalition of peace folks should set up an appointment
with Cliff Stearns; really try to get a real appointment to talk with
him. I will be glad to do this and if I get an appointment who would
like to go to Stearns office and have a sit down with him??
Please respond. I think we should really try to make a real
appointment to see him, show up on time, be polite, have our comments in
writing, be professional and lobby the dude.
Thanks for all you do for peace. You give me hope.
Your pink pal for peace,

Subject: Sign Holding before games
I have had a request about sign holding for tomorrows
We will be discussing this subject at the Peace Forum on
and at the VFP meeting Wednesday night, both are after tomorrows
I think that we should have a presence with our signs before the
place's like 34th and archer rd, williston rd and newberry
have the people.
I believe that we
should be aware that this may upset some of those
game, so for our own protection from those who may be hostile
we need to have at least a dozen of us at each location we
that people have to make a commitment
for locations and times so none
become vulnerable to those
neanderthals that still support this war
liquored up for the game.
If you are interested in tomorrow let me
know. The game starts at
If I get enough people who
will commit to tomorrow I will let everyone
The Peace Forum
starts at 2 at the CMC tomorrow so we may want to skip
tomorrows game until
we get our ducks in a row.
