At Long Last...
Can you name the one country on earth where the government can steal
elections, strip away basic rights, spy on citizens, and launch wars based
on lies, but where the people do not take over the nation's capital in
If you said the United States, you'll be wrong on September fifth when Camp
Democracy begins on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
At long last, Americans are preparing to say "Enough is enough," and to do
what Ukrainians, Mexicans, or any other people not drugged into acquiescence
would do when things got this bad: occupy the capital city to demand peace,
justice, and accountability.
Share a Ride to Camp Democracy, Share a Room When You Get Here!
Camp Democracy will be held on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., from
September 5 to 21. This will be a camp for peace, democracy, and the
restoration of the rule of law. Camp Casey will move from Crawford, Texas,
to Washington to create a larger camp focused not only on ending the war but
also on righting injustices here at home and on holding accountable the Bush
Administration and Congress.
Your travel to Camp Democracy is part of the camp and should be a
community-building experience. Do you have two people in your car but four
seats? Can you bring a van? A large bus? Or do you want to fly on a plane
together with others bound for Camp Democracy? Sign up here to offer a ride
or to ask for one: http://spaceshare.com/campdemocracy

We Need Your Help!
Camp Democracy is a grassroots effort and will only succeed with the help of
many, many people contributing the small amounts they can afford. This is
our opportunity to do what the citizens of the Ukraine, of Mexico, and of
other countries do when their democracies are taken from them. This is our
chance to say "Enough is enough!" Can you help us?
"I will not vote for or support any candidate for Congress or President who
does not make a speedy end to the war in Iraq, and preventing any future war
of aggression, a public position in his or her campaign."
