Sweet that people are talking about it!
I have a station wagon, so I could help out with moving mats.
I've been putting some posters up on main campus. I can do some more on main
campus today (and try and keep on top of the library since the posters change
there every hour...).
a couple questions:
do we want to do a bake sale while the demo is going on to raise money? or is
that just going to be too much?
also - this is totally unrelated to the demo, but someone mentioned to me that
uvm aikido club can pay for seminars. I'm not sure how much we have in the way
of funds for this or how this works or if I just dreamed this entire
conversation, but I signed up for the seminar at ACV on the 9th, and it would
be incredibly helpful if at all possible. does anyone know anything more about

"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never
get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around
you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To
never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect
strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never
look away. And never, never to forget. "
The End of Imagination, Arundhati Roy
