  1. It was interesting reading the manifesto of the parent organization for this march. I have seen such manifestos before, different organization names, but generally speaking, the same manifestos. I expect this will fail as much as all the others have because it is impractical and requires the average human being to change his basic nature. It is only a small lunatic fringe that believes such goals are feasible (or even desireable) but they believe with all their heart until the failure becomes so obvious that even they have to accept it.

    Well, good luck with your march. I hope you have a good time and the media is out there to watch.

  2. Barbara, I’ll contact you via email about this, and other information about the march and workshops.

  3. Would you like to invite Congressman Raul Grijalva to attend and speak briefly? I think he will be in town.
