A US anti-war group has been warned it will be fined 10,000 dollars if it does not remove posters in Washington announcing a march in the capital next month against , a spokeswoman said Wednesday.Methinks they have it out for the ANSWER Coalition. What do youthinks? Look what I found on their site:
The fines come after a campaign led by FOX news calling for the DC government to take action against those putting up posters for the September 15 demonstration.Back to the original story:
Several hundred yellow posters have been put up around Washington announcing the protest, which is timed to coincide with the release of a report by the US military commander in Iraq, , on progress in the US "surge" strategy of raising troop levels.Sounds productive. So what's the problem again?
authorities said the posters have to come down because they were stuck on with adhesive that did not meet city regulations.Oh my. That is serious. Very, very serious. Illegal adhesive. Send 'em all to jail!
Demonstrators from at least 90 cities around the United States and have already pledged to come to Washington for the march, which will be part of a week of anti-war protests led by veterans of the Iraq war, according to Sloan.
A petition calling for the impeachment of , allegedly carrying one million signatures and endorsed by former US attorney general Ramsey Clark, will also be submitted to officials during the week's activities.
Somehow I think they'll get the word out. In fact, they're already on it. Check out their site to see how.
