The advance publicity for the beach
impeach promised "Cindy Shehan, Cynthia McKinney, and Michelle
Shocked!" Unfortunately, I was still getting my camera out when Cindy
finished speaking. What I remember boiled down to "get the troops out
of Iraq. End the war now. Vote for me!" Cynthia McKinney began by
saying "I agree with
everything Cindy said." Then she talked about how it wasn't just the
Jena 6 on the line in the South. There were four more in Alabama, and
probably others burried in the email that hadn't reached the public
mind yet. I think she invited people to come hear more later.
Michelle sang a song in which we had to
help her list off the countries where the US has had a negative
military impact. Viet Nam, Chile, Iraq, Nicaragua,... The list went on
and on, but she only had a few minutes on the stage.
Zack showed Cynthia how you could find
the whole story of 9/11 on the back of an assortment of greenbacks.
Then we all put our
bodies on the line so the guy in the black helecopter with the funny
logo could shoot us. There were several signals that basically meant
"move to the next configuration." The conspiricy theorist in me likes
the fact that Cynthia McKinney waved the green flag, and Michelle
Shocked waved the blue flag.
After the helicopters
had come and gone, Code Pink organized us into a march to the new
Marine Recruiting Station near BART.
