a pleasant sight ,
but it is
the USA today :
Context : The War on (Some) Drugs .
I applaud Dana Beal`s accomplishment in creating a coordinated global day of
pleasant events at which the State can display it`s use of Force , virtually
for its own sake , to control peaceful fellow citizen`s lives .
I know Dana has as many detractors as fans among those with the same goal
of ending this unconstitutional prohibition , and I can understand why .
But Dana does succeed in bringing together a rainbow of , what has to be
, , 10000
peaceful people who happen to be pot heads .
The accent on music groups ( you can imagine he gets some good music groups
) is undoubtedly a reason for his success .
Unfortunately , I feel , from the point of view of having real political
impact to end this madness , the resource was squandered terribly .
None of us who are waging the war to actually get the representation our
numbers warrant , to actually start using our damn VOTE , and our ability to
get out and do the Ward Healing to motivate our friends and neighbors
of whatever pharmaceutical persuasion to join us , to display the political
muscle to attack this Statist criminalization of simply being human ;
None of us who are actually running for Political Office against
Giuliani and Hillary and their allies got a chance to speak to Assembled
Crowd while they were fresh . Below is the Speech I prepared , which if it
was to be delivered at all had to be delivered when the energy was high . I
really am looking for warriors to get together a Mid-Summer Party at
Coney Island in my district .
The Election of the Millennium is This November 7 . Next year`s march
won`t have the same leverage .
Prepared Speech ( undelivered ) The excercise appears to have been useful . Chris Garvey says the
speech I did give ( video to come ) was much tighter than previous efforts .

Final Event Agenda
" MY FELLOW - - CRIMINALS "
One year ago , right here from Dana Beal`s Bully Pulpit ,
that`s the way , I announced my JIHAD , my holy war ,
to replace Jerrold Nadler as the voice of this
Congressional District here on the tip of
Our Capital of the World where we are now
Assembled under the Protection of FIRST AMENDMENT of
the BILL of RIGHTS which the People living here
208 years ago DEMANDED
before they would agree to Constituting a
Federal Government with the POWER to use FORCE
to , in JEFFERSON`s words ,
Restrain US from injuring one another .
These Honorable men agreed to create a system of
Courts and Police and Prisons to provide collective
protection against those who would use Fraud or
Force in their relations with others .
They recognized that bestowing this power on a Political
Class was very dangerous and tried to structure a
government which would restrain that Force and prevent its
use of fraud .
Today , in the year 2000 , the Government has
metastasized into a leviathan which has become criminal
itself by criminalizing us its citizens for all sorts of
things from failing to properly fill out some of its
unending flood of forms to growing and using certain
plants which humanity has used since before recorded
history - for instance Marijuana , Ipoga & Coca .
The Political Class says we are not wise enough ,
charitable enough , or moral enough to run our own lives
. Therefore they have to take our money , and sometimes
even put us in prison for our own good .
The State makes large classes of citizens criminal , not
for injuring another citizen , not on the basis of a
complaint by one citizen that another did him wrong --
The State becomes not just the Court and the Prosecutor ,
but the Accuser too .
This is profoundly wrong and corrupt .
And now the Corruption has become Total .
The Court , which the merchants and farmers here
200 years ago instiutued to provide redress
-- short of direct revenge by the injured individual --
for damage by Fraud or Force --
The Court , which therefore seeks and depends on the
finding of TRUTH above all else .
The Court , has been corrupted to its absolute core -
It has condoned PERJURY by the individual elected to
represent the Honor of the State .
The RULE of LIE has replaced the RULE of LAW .
While joking he`d inhale now , Bill Clinton has put
more Citizens guilty of injuring no-one other than ,
perhaps , themselves , in prison than anyone else in
American History .
What has this to do with US ?
What has this to do with the
image behind me ?
This picture is not unique .
This picture of a SWAT Machine Gun
pointed in a Hispanic kid`s face
has happened lots of times to
lots of families right here in the Capital of the World .
For all sorts of reasons -- but mostly as casualties
of the Unconstitutional Substance Prohibition War
being conducted by the State upon Its Citizens .
Kids have been torn away by overwhelming use of force ,
from their Fathers and their Mothers and their Nanas and
Gramps , and Uncles and Aunts , by the State , for all
sorts of reasons .
For at least half a dozen families here in our World
Capital this last year - - it`s simply been by mistake !
A wrong Address .
Perhaps a neighbor , with some bitch or other about the
family , but too cowardly to deal with it directly ,
called an 800-snitch number leaving anonymous tips .
I was born in 1944 . In the `50s , we were told scary
stories of the Police State behind the Iron Curtain -
a criminal state where the Gestapo - KGB - Secret
Police - Special Weapons Attack Teams - broke down
doors in the middle of the night and rounded up
families to cart them off to prison on the basis of
informers tips .
We are there . It is Now .
Let us END the NANNY POLICE STATE
I NEED TO RAISE AN ARMY OF WARRIORS FOR LIBERTY
I am running for US Congress , House of Representatives ,
New York 8-th District , Right here , and up the West
Side to , actually 119 , but mainly 89th St , and across
the Brooklyn Bridge to the wharfs along the water , then
taking the Gowanas Parkway to Boro Park , and Ocean
Boulevard down to Coney Island .
Go to my Web site to see a map of this Gerrymander ,
and see if you are one of the 600,000 of US in the
I am running because I saw on C-SPAN the testimony of
the six ordinary , W2 wage workers in the White House
Travel office , some of whom had been falsely arrested
and imprisoned in closed vans , some of whom had to
defend themselves against going to prison for years for
false charges of embezzlement - orchestrated by Hillary
Clinton to clear out a job for one of Bill`s kissing
I am running because my opponent Jerrold Nadler lied
repeatedly while acting essentially as a criminal defense
attorney on the Judiciary committee , lied every time he
claimed no wrong doing had ever been proven against the
I am also running , because at exactly the same time
Mr Schippers was delivering his devastating factual
record of Bill Clinton`s Lies and Conspiracy ,
One of Giuliani and Safir`s Courteous Respectful Punks
was fabricating in court , a few blocks from here , a
scene which did not happen , to justify his seizure of my
MotorBoard at a stoplight . The record is on my Web Site
Judge for yourself .
Incidentally the American Government is now far and away
the greatest thief in history . It seizes over 600
million $ in property each year while all bank robber
together total less than 30 .
In the last year Giuliani & Safir have seized at least
$3M worth of cars , many on the basis of chemical tests
at roadblocks .
The Very first such seizure was so patently corrupt and
unsubstantiated that it was thrown out of court a year
after the damage had been done .
IF I GET 100,000 VOTES WE WIN .
The job pays $141,000 , and carries about a $3 billion

I need to get 3500 signatures to get on the ballot -
its one of those Election Regulations designed to keep
things Fair - Yea Right - Fair for the Republocrats .

their choices on this vote and give themselves the
Vote for Peace and Freedom for a Change .
If you`ve got any money left over that the Government
has not TAKEN for your old age , or because they are more

That`s why this shirt I have on is long sleeve .
I`m planning to spend a lot of our funds on a series of
parties in each of the neighborhoods of the district

NEW YORK, NY. Cures Not Wars , 9 Bleecker, N.Y.C.
10012. USA. > Tel: 212-677-7180 Fax: 212-353-1670. Media: 677-4899
If you are from the New York area, you can come to meetings on Sundays at 6
at # 9 Bleecker St one block west of the Bowery. We also have trainings on
Saturday at noon, meeting up in front of the Washington Square Hotel until
1pm, then at Bleecker & MacDougal until 2pm. You can also send yr postal
address for a free infopack, or just call us at 212-677-7180.
On Saturday, May 6th, gather south of Washington Square Park (but not IN the
park) from 11 to 12:30; walk south to Houston street and a block or so east &
you'll hit the "official" parade assembly point (it's too small) at Houston
& Broadway. March leaves promptly at 1 PM, reaches City Hall Park just
We're encouraging people to "wait for the parade" at city hall, demonstrating
against rudi, instead of down in Battery Park where they just annoy the
sound crews. They can walk the last 10 blocks like everyone else, and stay
within our permit, which stipulates that nothing much is supposed to be
happening before we arrive in force, except vendor set-up and so-on.
What we Don't want is people harassing the sound people like last
year because some one told them there's free pot in Battery Park.
There isn't, and there won't be. There is no helicopter. Pot is not
legal that day by Mayoral proclamation!
Not only that, last year there were 43 arrests in or around
Washington Square Park, 47 in Battery Park, but only 12 on the entire
march. Therefore the safest place to be is on the march, which goes
from 1 to 2:30 PM (the height of the day)-- with chances of arrest
less than 1 in a thousand. The best thing you can do if you find
yrself in Battery Park early is to tell everyone to go back up to
City Hall. / Dana/cnw
