**THIRD** rally to DEMAND TRUTH FROM MEDIA!--Action on Thursday Night 6/9


Hello Code Pink! I hope you will join me this Thursday, June 9 for the
third rally of the Save America Coalition. Details follow. Given the
action from Code Pink today about the Downing Street Memo- the timing is
excellent. Check out our previous two rallies here:

JOIN US! Participants include members of St. Pete for Peace, Progressive
Democrats of America, Democracy for America Tampa Bay, Tampa Bay
Veterans for Peace and other concerned citizens.

We are calling for the media (and the passing rush hour motorists) to
DEMAND THE TRUTH and investigate the "Downing Street Memo". The
administration has been documented LIEING and fixing the case for war
(yes, I know WE know this, but others are opening their eyes). The major
media are starting to ASK QUESTIONS.

We have been covered in the local press, and these SIMPLE actions have
garnered national attention.

Now is the time to TAKE ACTION. Please take ten or fifteen minutes out
of your day and join us. Please forward this message to all you know
(not just email; CALL people you know!)

Thanks and I hope to see you there! (bring your own fabulous hot pink
poster board sign, or hold up one we will provide for you!) PEACE!
Michelle Geisler

P.S.- if you bring just THREE others with you, I will give you a
fabulous BIG Code Pink button for FREE! (look for my pink sign with
Downing Street Memo on it)

Hello Fellow Progressives!!

We are planning YET ANOTHER sign-holding rally outside of the Media
General/Channel 8/Tampa Tribune complex on Parker in downtown Tampa
(between Channelside and UT; between Kennedy and the Crosstown), to
express our outrage at the media not doing its job of reporting on the

The Downing Street Memo is the document which proves that George Bush
and Tony Blair "fixed the facts" to get us into the Iraq war and
resulted in the unnecessary deaths of 1,600 American men and women in
uniform, as well as more than 100,000 Iraqis.

NOTE that some mainstream media IS starting to cover it, but
predictably, the conservative talking heads and Bush spinmeisters are
already trying to discredit it. (For more info about the Downing Street
Memo, visit http://www.downingstreetmemo.com)

This story of the White House's deception and betrayal of us, and its
potentially impeachable offense, has been VIRTUALLY IGNORED by the
mainstream media!! We want to bring it to the public's attention--our
first step is to picket on Kennedy near Media General, and draw the
media to us!!

Thank you to all who have shown your support at the last two rallies. If
at all possible, please, try to make some time for a third day to
support this worthy cause, and DEMAND TRUTH FROM OUR MAINSTREAM MEDIA!!

Michelle K.
