Stand With the G-20 Protesters

By Debra Sweet 

The most blatant show of military and police force left protesters tear-gassed, subject to piercing sound, shot with rubber bullets, and not allowed to assemble, while the population of Pittsburgh was kept off the streets and rounded up along with people there to deliver messages of opposition to the G-20 ministers.
 
We put a quick letter together which we will deliver on Thursday.  Please circulate this link everywhere so that thousands sign on.

People of conscience must stand together in outrage and not accept this repression from the government on the people.  We cannot allow these actions to go quietly into the night and be forgotten. 
We are seizing the opportunity to have our voices heard in unison, denouncing the fascist direction of this country.   It is with the utmost urgency and for the sake of stopping the police state and reversing this course that WE WILL NOT BE SILENT. 
 
By signing this statement we pledge to do everything we can to call attention to, and demand justice for those unjustly arrested and charged at the G-20 in Pittsburgh.  The world can't wait!
If you have further ideas, writings, reports, photos, please send them!
