St.Louis PINKs bring a message of peace to Sarah Palin @ after-debate-rallyOctober 2, 2008
St.Louis PINKs Colleen Kelly, Megan Heeney, Katie Cushwa, Becca Gorley- did a banner drop and Lauren Trout, Tim Cosentino, Andea & Megan Ramsey helped chant "WOMEN WANT PEACE NOT WAR!". They were all patted-down and kicked out.
They were rightly not fined for exercising their freedom of speech. GO GIRLS!
Kelly said Palin's usual response to protesters is "...son over there fighting for our right to protest...", when it's unjust policies of the Bush administration our soldiers are forced to follow, Kelly thinks it's unfair we ask solders to follow these unjust policies.
Check out the beginning of the footage (taken from a neo-con perspective) from Sarah Palin's rally and you'll see these brave women in ACTION in the upper right hand corner. ENJOY!
