message that there's a whole army of Americans for ending this war...
showed up as night fell; our "Restore our Democracy. Fire Bush Nov 2"

thanks to Sarah, Ellen, Linda, Maria and everyone else who made it out
there. You are heroes, all!
The Election Day banner drop at Sepulveda and Palms went off at 7:30 am, and Cynthia from the Lawyers Guild kept the cops at bay until 9 am. Look for upcoming footage on la.indymedia.org.
Meanwhile, in OC seven CODEPINKer's instigated
a successful banner drop Nov. 1 on the pedestrian overpass near Warner
Ave in Huntington Beach. From 4:15 to 5:15 until darkness fell, the
group drew overwhelming positive responses of honks, waves and thumbs
up from banners facing both north- and south-bound traffic.
CHP motorcycle cops drove by, but none approached until the end of the
hour when a CHP helicopter circled above for 10 minutes, followed by a
CHP motorcycle cop who parked on the shoulder beneath us, shouting
orders from his loudspeaker (none of which we could understand). He
finally drove off. Thanks to Sarah for e-mailing the attorney's letter,
which we had on hand, ready to use if necessary.
