South Beach: Awake and In Motion

There have been 3,018 dead soldiers in combat and over 46,000 American soldiers have been wounded from this illegal war and last night George W. Bush came out and told the world that the best plan for Iraq was to send in more American troops. More than twenty thousand of them. Less than 24 hours later Americans hit the streets, all across the nation. A few different groups organized over 585 Emergency Protests, throughout the states.

In South Beach at the corner of Lincoln and Alton one of the protests was underway at 4:30pm. Small groups gathered on each of the four corners of the busy intersection. Some held signs encouraging the drivers to "HONK" in agreement and they did, which was nice, but it would have been nicer to see some of those drive by honkers get out of their cars to stand united with the rest of us. There was no real opposition, just one guy asking why anyone would bother in South Beach because "no one cares", and "gay people aren't political". This guy just seemed a little too happy being extra negative, looking to provoke people, but he was ignored by the peaceful bunch. All kinds of people were in attendance, but the younger protesters illuminated the heart of the matter "People do care, this is their future we are trying to protect".
The World Can't Wait was one of the organizers, and they have a more expanded plan to "Drive out The Bush Regime". When asked about throwing this new congress out if they don't make changes by 2008 spokeswoman, Sunsara Taylor said "we don't have that much time". Pelosi took Impeachment off the table, and that has infuriated the masses, these protests will not end here, Bush and the Democratic leadership seem to be partnered in this non issue, and we cannot and will not stand for it. It's good that they have shown their true colors so early in their majority roles, their arrogance has exceeded their ability. First and foremost HR 6166 needs to be repealed. They are supposed to uphold and defend The Constitution of the United States, instead they have watched for six years as the Bush administration has trampled it and now the Democrats have the ability to hold them accountable for the 655,000 innocent Iraqis that have died in OUR NAMES, and they have made it clear that they do not care, and will continue this New World Order agenda for the duration!
For those of you who don't follow sports the Superbowl is being held in Miami this year, and that weekend will be oozing with media across South Beach. Miami Beach Democratic Club will be part of a protest in South Beach on that weekend, they will once again place over three thousand cardboard tombstones at Lummus Park in honor of those killed so far. Show your support, call for an end to the Bush Regime, learn about and defend our Constitution, the future of America is everyones responsibility.
