Subject: [CCAWTtalk] Health Care not Warfare picket with vets for peace
Date: Thu, 13 Aug 2009 09:26:41 -0400
Dear friends of Peace and Justice,
Vets for Peace is focusing our last two regular August Tuesday pickets on a Health Care not Warfare
theme. These will be our last two pickets before Congress returns to Washington in September to debate health care reform.Â
We will be picketing on Archer and 34th street next week on Tuesday August 18th
and on University and 13th Street on Tuesday August 25th
.Â Times are between 4:30 and 6:30, as you can attend. Five to 6 pm is peak rush hour traffic and it is usually cooling off by then. I will be arriving between 5 and 5:30 because of my work schedule.Â Please attend as you can!
Please join us for one or both of these special pickets and send your own personal message about health care not warfare to our own community.
Â We will be making signs for these two events at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 4225 N.W. 34th street just north of 39th avenue (bus route #8), on Saturday afternoon August 15th from 1:00 to 3:00pm
. Call email or 352-262-3857 for transportation.
I will bring foam board and poster board and markers.Â If you have large markers and other sign making materials, please bring them along with all your good ideas for signs.
We Will be updating our Cost of War signs and I need three people to hold those at the picket.Â They will show the current tax bill for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan (which will hit 1 trillion dollars later this year nationally) compared to the health care we could have bought with that same money. The three posters show that information for USA, Florida and Gainesville.Â
Please join us on SaturdayÂ to prepare for our pickets the next two Tuesdays for
Health Care Not Warfare!
Be there or be square!
