United for Peace of Pierce County has developed some contingency plans re: "taking it to the streets." Come out and let your voice be heard.
If Congress votes "No" on Obama's proposal to attack Syria, we'll meet downtown to celebrate. We'll meet the same day as the vote, at 5:00 p.m. in front of the old Union Station, currently the Federal Courthouse, 1717 Pacific Ave, Tacoma. Bring signs registering your thanks to your Rep and Senator(s) if they have voted "No." Or your dismay or anger or whatever if not.
If the House or the Senate votes "yes" on Obama's proposal to attack Syria, we'll be meeting THAT DAY at 5:00 p.m. with signs and our voices (and whistles?) to register our dismay in front of the old Union Station, currently the Federal Courthouse, 1717 Pacific Ave, Tacoma. We'll also be there THE NEXT DAY at 5:00 p.m.
Another group has called a "Vigil to Oppose Strikes on Syria" for today, Monday, September 9, at 7:00 p.m., at Occupation Park (So 21st & Pacific). Bring signs and candles.

The freeway banner reads: DontAttackSyria.com. We'll be at the D Street/McKinley Ave overpass over I-5 (right by the Tacoma Dome), and some days we may choose to be on Pacific Avenue and South 21st as well, IF enough people come out and we can be both places.
