Kansas City IMC

excellent points kara,

thanks for sharing this concern. Many of us have likely had similar feelings.

Granted the initial entry to the park seemed a little intimidating. That said, I thought that this last Sunday's overall protest was especially powerful. The positive energy generated by the pro peace crowd was awesome. The majority of our anti war, pro peace protesters are intelligent, beautiful, caring people:
sign example:

The pro war people are well aware that they are outnumbered (and outclassed) by the pro peace protesters. Their ugly little, not so secret goal is to antagonize / provoke a pro peace protester into doing something illegal. (Really, it must feel awful to harbor such hateful feelings towards your fellow citizens. I almost feel sorry for them. almost.)

Another possibility under investigation is that many of this specific group of pro war people may have been bused in from Iowa.

From what I understand, it is not realistic for the to groups be physically seperated. Nor should we move our protest, as they would quickly follow (pity they do not have creativity enough to find their own park). The legality of the threatening signage issue is being looked into.

We need to ignore them and focus on doing good. Bring a camera and take photos, take notes for an article, mingle, gather signatures for our civil liberties, wander to the drumming area.

Someone that I met a few weeks ago stated that we get courage from one another there. I believe that to be very true. Among like minded people, lively entertainment, in an outdoor park spring setting, we make our own agenda.
