there if imc folks want to meet up!

An invite to:
DON'T JUST VOTE, REVOLT!
Post-Election Drum, Dance, Shout party
Election Night! NOVEMBER 2nd, 2004
8 p.m. - Market Square, Portsmouth, N.H.
Not really sure on the candidates? Feel like you're choosing the lesser of
two evils? Feelin' downright depressed cause of this sad state of affairs?
Well come shake it off with others of like mind in Portsmouth's Market
Square the night of the election!
The electoral process in this country has become more fraudulent than
Nixon, more fake than plastic, and more superficial than reality TV shows.
No need to rant because you probably already know. Participation in our
communities can not be limited to casting ballots every four years, in
fact, that's just about the most lazy "democratic" participation ever
practiced! And about half of the country's population don't even take that
up. With regard, the feeling of ineffectiveness and hopelessness resonates
in all of us.
This is not a pro-voting, pro-candidate, pro-party get together where
partisans can come to shout their freakin' heads off. Please, spare us, we
get mouthfuls of it from sun up to sun down day in and day out. This is a
public expression of all that passion, frustration, and whatever the hell
else can't fit in those narrow ballot boxes. So get up!
BRING: drums!, guitars, horns, noise makers, buckets, pots, pans, anything
musical (or not). Flashlights and other spectacular items. Banners, flags,
signs (no Candidate/Party signs for god sakes), puppets, costumes,
whathaveyou. Bring everything and anything seen fit to express the utter
futility of the election!
its the most important party of all! (pun intended)
Hope to see you all there.
