I took this picture as we were
gathering after a breakout session,
before the general assembly reconvened. Maybe a fifth to a quarter of
us were still involved with meetings in other rooms, but this gives you
an idea what we looked like then. Click above to take a more detailed
look at the event.
The lunch speaker on Saturday was
Gil Cedillo, the
State Senator from
California's 22nd District. The bulk of his speech was about the
movement to get every driver of legal age a California Drivers License,
my favorite line from his speech was "how great it is to have a peace
here in California." He was talking about us. :-) I gave him an Alabama
because I enjoy the coincidence that his is the 22nd District and it is
22nd State. It was still the newest one when I heard him speak. After
that evening the Swami
threw his turban in the ring as a
so I gave him a Mississippi quarter.
That logo on the
upper left of this badge was
suggested to me by a woman
from the San Diego Green Party.
The first time I took pictures at
a Green Party
meeting, I wasn't really
intending to document the event. Rather I was capturing the moment
the closing circle at the plenary at the Secretary of State's Building
Sacramento, somewhere back in 2001.
