Take the "P" out of Patriot - Proclaim Sept 11th Matriot Day!

SEE PHOTOS OF MARCH AND RALLY BELOW.

If we, as a nation, were to honor Matriots rather than flag waving Patriots what would the picture look like? If our president, governors and generals were women, what would our agenda be?
Thursday, September 11th - Bush has declared that day and is planning on observing it as..... "Patriot Day"
we figured on the anniversary of Sept 11 we should - Take the Pee out of Patriot and proclaim Sept 11th Matriot Day!

If we, as a nation, were to honor Matriots rather than flag waving Patriots what would the picture look like? If our president, governors and generals were women, what would our agenda be?

Imagine:
Enforcing the Matriot Act and mandate the following (compassionately!):
A complete education for all, full health care, on demand.
Affordable housing, free job training, free child care, etc, etc.

Vow to disregard national origin as grounds for suspicion (rather diverse national origin should be celebrated) We will work, struggle and fight for basic human rights,
but we will never declare WAR on anything... or anyone!
We demand full nutrition for infants, adults and the elderly!
We will enforce freedom of choice- in all aspects of society.
We will give the Peace Corps an equal or higher footing to military service (full pay, benefits and education).
We would require that all young people be given a full and just education before choosing between the military and community service.
Order millions of US troops to wield shovels, seedlings and compost instead of guns.
"Generals" pass orders to "conquer" Iraq- by greening the desert and building
millions of raised beds and drip irrigation water for the Iraqis veggie gardens.
Soldiers march in precision formation with shovels instead of guns over their shoulders.
"Make Compost, Not War!" "Plant Trees, Not Mines!"
Love over liberty! Destruction is not the solution! Neither is the price of pollution!

We think the seeds of a brilliant, creative, positive and powerful action are at hand.
If you'd like to collaborate with us, please contact
