They protest in front of the Circuit City on the corner of Central Expressway and Meadow Road. I think every Friday now. I have been meaning to get some pics but I'm in a mad dash to get to work.. Anybody else in N. Dallas seen these people?
From the Democracy Cell Project forum...
"For almost a month now, we have been visiting Hutchinson's office on a daily basis. So far, twelve have been arrested or issued citations. Last week, two ministers and an 80-year old anti-war grandma were arrested and thrown in Lew Sterritt prison for 12 hours because they refused to be turned away from visiting their senator.
This past Wednesday, I was able to get up into the building and deliver a letter to Hutchinson's assistant. However, the doors to her office remain locked and I had to ring a doorbell to get assistance. An assistant came to the door, but did NOT invite me because I did not have a scheduled appointment., according to their records. Believe me, we have found that if you have a scheduled appointment with Hutchinson, it appears time and again that appointments by any discenting voices somehow get removed from their daily appointment schedule ... hmmmm, how interesting.
Since the arrest and jailing of the well-known and highly respected Dallas ministers last week, it appears Hutchinson and building management have retreated. I'm sure a lawsuit that is being filed by one of the first individuals arrested against building management, etc. has had impact on their stand, too. The 20+ Dallas police officers no longer form a wall in front of the building. 'Bout time they realized that was a huge waste of taxpayer dollars in addition to a huge draw of attention. Instead, the building has added more security guards who are watchful of us, but not near as threatening as the Dallas Police were when they were out in force.
In closing, anyone and everyone in the Dallas area is invited to join us at 2:00 p.m. at Senator Hutchinson's office Monday thru Friday. Her Dallas office is located at Central Expressway and Meadow Road (northeast corner). The purpose of our daily visits: to deliver written requests (1) asking her to respond to Cindy Sheehan's request to all Senators regarding the noble cause for which are men and women are dying in Iraq and (2) request of a Town Hall Meeting to discuss Iraq, the loss of human lives due to the war, cost of war, an exit strategy, etc. Also, every Friday we recreate Camp Casey Dallas from 12:00 noon until 3:00 in front of Hutchinson's office. We have a much larger crowd join us for our Friday event ... probably had 25 + yesterday. Even though that number doesn't sound great, what is great is the response we are receiving from the passers-by. Wow ... an unbelievably positive twist compared to any anti-war activies of say, 8 to 12 months ago. Continuous "honks for peace", thumbs up, peace signs from the majority of vehicles that pass by this very busy intersection in Dallas, Texas. I sure hope Hutchinson and her staff are listening to the noise below ... her constituents are speaking loud and clear.
What are the non-majority vehicles putting up for them?
We have jobs to get too.. ;-)
I don't believe for a minute that the majority of vehicles passing by this group is giving them a thumbs up - more likely a middle finger. If it weren't for the fact that I'm too cheap to waste the gas to drive down there from my suburban location, I'd give them a "salute" too.
It's a common mistake, but these dunderheads are consistently missspelling the Senator's name. It's Hutchison, not Hutchinson. Small difference but one you'd think they'd be careful not to make. Then again, maybe they really don't THINK much, just emote.
