Peace Santa Arrives in Capitola

Peace Santa arrived at the Capitola Mall Dec 7 at noon. Soon after that he was being shadowed by what appeared to be a govt agent, holding a sign saying "Security is Peace". The agent claimed that Santa had left the Whitehouse in a Huff after discussing the War on Terrorism and the Iraq situtation with President Bush. Other protesters from the Peace Coalition were present and welcomed Peace Santa. He has been invited to appear at Pacific and Cooper st in Santa Cruz, Dec 8th at 1:45 PM.

Other possible appearances include: Ocean and Water st in Santa Cruz, CA at 5-6PM Dec 13th.

Clares and 41st Avenue, Capitola, CA , 12noon-2PM, December 14th.

It is hard for an adult to get an exact quote from this mysterious fellow, but there are rumors that Peace Santa's appearances on the 13th and 14th will coincide with work stoppages at the North Pole to protest Bush's War Policies and the terrorism situation in general.
