Dinner with Karl Rove?
Low numbers meant (to date) it hasn't been reported on protest central, Indymedia. House of Wheels has the details.
About 100 protesters picketed outside the White House later, chanting "Hey, hey, ho ho, Karl Rove has got to go."Original! Spurred on by the success of the above, DC Indymedia is now organizing another protest at Karl Rove's House. This is not the first time they have visited Rove at home. Last time:
Several hundred people stormed the small yard of President Bush's chief political strategist, Karl Rove...pounding on his windows, shoving signs at others and challenging Rove to talk to them about a bill that deals with educational opportunities for immigrants.So this time, instead they are inviting themselves over for dinner.
Protesters poured out of one school bus after another, piercing an otherwise quiet, peaceful Sunday in Rove's Palisades neighborhood in Northwest, chanting, "Karl, Karl, come on out! See what the DREAM Act is all about!"
Rove obliged their first request and opened his door long enough to say, "Get off my property."
"Seems like he doesn't want to invite us in for tea," Emira Palacios quipped to the crowd.
The entire story reads:
On Sunday at 6PM members of DAWN will protest in front of Karl Rove's house in the Palisades. His address is 4925 Weaver Terrace in Palisades.Note it doesn't actually specify what they'll be protesting and as far as I can see, it's just harrassment of Rove and his neighbours. No jail solidarity even.
There is plenty of free parking, but bring health food. Karl really needs to lose weight before his trial and prison sentence for outing a CIA agent.
But don't worry:
This will be a totally peaceful candlelight vigil. Bring some healthy snacks to share. I'll bring carrot sticks and such.Has anyone ever heard of a violent candlelight vigil? Nothing would surprise me...
