In Santa Fe, 300 people from every age gathered on October 5. There were some great speakers. Mayor Daid Cox said, “the recent legislative bill has shamed us before the world.” Senator John Grubesic said, “our union has been fractured, our country is dying. Traitors in our Congress and Senate have allowed this to happen.” A lawyer testified that the Patriot Act and torture legislation are un-Constitutional. A Green Party representative said, “We must take our country back. If Mexico can do it, so can we.”
About 20 cops and 3-4 FBI/DHS agents were present.
About 80 people presented their statements to the office of a local Republican official (he wasn’t in).
Some good signs from the day: “We Mourn the Children.” “Have We No Principles?” “3079 Dead, 24005 wounded.” “Civil Disobedience May Be All We Have Left as Citizens Who Love Our Country.”
