Protest George W. Bush at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut at 10:00am on May 21, 2001
May 19th is right around the corner.
And so is May 21st - when GW Bush is going to be honored by Yale (for what? Nobody knows... Something to do with payola) during Yale's commencement.
Rumor has it they're even going to give him an honorary degree... Now if you think that isn't appropriate, then I'll see you there!
This is a great opportunity to follow up after the Voter Rights March. Make it a double-whammy and protest against him in DC, then come out to CT! Keep up the pressure!
Here's all the info everyone needs:
Take the Metro North New Haven Line from Grand Central, leaving at 8:07AM (Monday, May 21st... Enough time to call in sick to work that day) to the last stop on the train - New Haven. If you're late there's another train leaving at 9:07 and 10:07AM just in case. Make sure you get on the train. Itís $15.25 regular fare, one way.
Arrival at 9:50AM if you leave at 8:07AM. EST.
There is a bus leaving from Boston going to this protest. To get yourself on that bus, which will arrive to meet us at the New Haven stop at 10:00AM, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward you to the appropriate contact.
OTHER - NEW ENGLAND, CT, MA, ME, et al:

This will be a huge event... The protest that is.
No matter what your issue, Environment, Choice, Supreme Court, etc... It all comes back to one thing. George W. Bush is illegitimate, he didnít win the popular vote and he didnít win Florida (USA Today, 5/11/01). The people donít want him or his cronies making decisions that affect the globe and weíre not going to take it anymore.
So come out and speak your peace. It isnít about anything besides Bush. He stole the election. He wants you to drink arsenic and breathe CO2. And heís debating your womb in Washington right now. And the budget? Well... Just tell him to cut the crap, not money for the poor.
Fight this sick administration. Fight to restore your rights. Keep the momentum alive after May 19th and make sure at least two people you know are coming along. I want to pack that New York train and all of the buses that are being organized throughout the New England area.
From New York trains to Boston buses, youíre wanted and welcome. Join us in protesting this sonofaBush.
