U.S. Army on Domestic Missions

I feel strange putting out an alert like this in the United States, but here it is:

On October 1st, Bush deployed a brigade (3-4 thousand soldiers) for domestic missions of crowd control and keeping the peace.  This is the first time in America, since 1807, that the military has been on the ground domestically.  Bush then, almost immediately, threatened members of congress with marshal law if they did not pass the $700 billion bailout bill.  Rep. Brad Sherman talked about this last week.

For more background:

This situation represents a great threat to all of our movements and, as activists and organizers, our personal safety.  Please view these links and spread the word to as many friends and groups as possible.  We are all very, very short on time and we are going to need everyone in order to push this attempted coup back.  We need to organize as many groups and individuals together to stand up against this and try to coordinate them on a national level.

In addition, my understanding is that Bush is legally arrestable at this point by any local District Attorney and that arrest and trial would be the most direct method of pushing this back, and our DAs can be directly contacted and pressured.  Please watch the above for more details.

    it is scary…and I don’t think that Nov is going to make it much better. The Executive of our country has unpreccedented power these days (thanks to Bush). I’m really scared of what the next President will do with it.
