Saturday 4/5/2008: Peace Demo in Patchogue

Please consider attending the counter-military recruiting demonstration today, Saturday, April 5, 2008, outside the Patchogue Military Recruiting station at 11am to 1:30pm.

Message from Karen Sackett:

A woman I met whose nephew is in Iraq began a group
with her sister called “Operation Love Our Troops”
where they go door to door collecting essentials for
the soldiers. The sister received a phone call from a
member of the gathering of eagles urging her to attend
a demonstration in Patchogue tomorrow because a group
there (us) will be demonstrating against the troops.

As you know, we will be demonstrating against
recruiting tactics and against the occupation in Iraq.
Please try to make it tomorrow so our numbers are
better than usual, and feel free to send the info out
to your lists.

The Patchogue recruiting station is located at 116 E.
Main St., between Route 112 and N. Ocean Ave. and we
will be there from 11:00 am until 1:30 pm. The police
have told me they will keep the groups separate, and
we will maintain a peaceful non-confrontational
presence. If you have a video camera, please bring it.

Thanks so much for your help.

  1. how dare you enjoy the luxuries of freedom and the blanket of security that we provide for you yet question the manner in which we provide it? how about you grab a gun and stand a post and defend your liberties? i thought not…….


  2. Wow! reading this so many months later and now, after the young veteran was just trampled on by a police horse while protesting “the manner in which” our “luxury of freedom and blanket of security” is provided, seems particulary surreal. Are there people out there still saying this crap?

  3. I think Nicholson’s delivery was more effective. Joe, Joe, you could have at least put it in quotes.
    Sadly, I think Joe missed the point of that film.
