CRAWFORD ACTION, March 1, 2008

George Bush returned to the Crawford ranch on March 1, and peace activists again voiced their opposition to his illegal occupation of Iraq and twisted priorities. The visit by Bush was largely not announced thus our group was small. But we had rather speak out in small numbers against torture, than hide in a mansion ranch with hundreds and try to rationalize the authorization of war crimes. Further, a Canadian reporter spoke with us and a report appeared in the Canadian press. http://communities.canada.com/shareit/blogs/theelephant/archive/2008/03/02/as-texas-votes-crawford-prepares-for-its-curtain-call.aspx ( for report and image).
And of course, the streak continues: the peace presence at the checkpoint has happened each time Bush hides out at the ranch.
