Hey all, just some more info about the counter-protest article that Mary sent out this am. From speaking with national march organizers, sounds like the bit about counter demonstartors "permitting the sidewalks" on the 25th is not true. Nationally we've been working with Parks and Rec and the police in the DC area and they have informed us that no one (no counter demonstrators) else is permitted for the march. (So, counter demonstrators can come and potentially be arrestested). Very interesting that the article talked so much about permitting, when they're not permitted (at least for the 25th). beth Beth Tarallo, VT Grassroots Organizer, PPNNE [log in to unmask] 802 878 7232 ext 232 March with me on Sunday, April 25th 2004 for Women's Lives!
