Protest Alert: Walkout scheduled for Inauguration Day

Food Not Bombs cofounder Keith McHenry reports on Arizona Indymedia that a walkout/protest is scheduled for Inauguration Day. The march from UA to the federal building starts at 1530. McHenry also reports that "some people are interested in occupying a congressional office."

Note that this will be during school hours. Not good.

UPDATE:

I found the flyer from Food Not Bombs' website. Events include:

  • "Memorial for Democracy": De Anza Park (Speedway and Stone) @ 1000
  • "March and Critical Mass Bike Ride" to the University
  • Old Main Rally @ 1530
  • March to federal building

The flyer also notes to "bring pots and pans to bang with spoons". What??

This will be followed on Jan. 22 by a "Counter Inaugural [sic] Ball" from 1100 to 1500 at De Anza Park.

All in all, politics is back for a while. Somehow, to them, democracy has something to do with only Democrats winning.
