This is pretty impressive political organizing done even as the local Colorado Springs’ Pikes Peak Justice and Peace Commission aligned itself with the national coalition of Democrats and Liberal church folk, the United For Peace and Justice (UFPJ), to try to derail Recreate ’68’s work.

What is especially despicable about the manipulations of these pacifists and Democrats is how they are providing propaganda and camouflage for the police and US government to violently attack demonstrators at the Denver Democratic Party Convention. By splitting away using the guise that there was not sufficient commitment by leaders of Recreate ’68 to their new age religion cult of ‘non violence’, they themselves are helping enable violence from the authoritarian government which they say they oppose.

Shame on them! Further they are actually trying to demobilize people from doing mass protests in order to mobilize them to vote pro-war candidate Barack Obama. Double shame on them for that!

Furthermore, did you notice TOM HAYDEN, need I say of the original Chicago Eight/Seven is speaking for the ARD-allied PEOPLE CALL FOR CHANGE, at an indoor church venue, drawing people away from the streets.

Although I wondered if this was a clever way to involve people who would normally avoid the streets. To hear Hayden they would have to cross the street, before and after…

Cynthia McKinney, Green Party candidate for President, and Rosa Clemente, Green Party candidate for Vice President are NOT participating in any Recreate ’68 activities.

Both candidates, and the Green Party of Colorado, are refuting this announcement and are stating that neither candidate, nor the Green Party of Colorado, are in any way associated with Recreate ’68, nor will any of their candidates be speaking at or attending any event, nor are they in any way associated with the group Recreate ’68.

Dave, and what is the problem the Green Party has in speaking at this rally?

Dave,
Until we can verify your claim… McKinney and Clemente will have an eager audience on Sunday. Hopefully they aren’t listening to divisive advice from the Green local. Shame on you for trying to discredit fellow activists. When McKinney rocks the house at the rally, I’ll accept your apologies. Meanwhile I suggest you break your laptop over your knee if you can’t stop yourself fomenting a fractured image of what is really a united, peaceful DNC protest effort.
Green is the new Blue
Many of us believe in the same candidates, shouldn’t we stick together?

This below is what one finds if they follow Dave’s link to the Denver Green Party site. Notice that Claire Ryder is behind this sectarianism. Claire is the grand leader of the Denver ARD faction aligned with the national Democratic Party connected UFPJ.

Isn’t this reminiscent of how the Cobb crew derailed the Green Party presidential campaign in 2004 as the Green Party Cobb people asked folk not to vote for the Green presidential candidate but for John Kerry instead?

Green Party Candidates Not Associated With Recreate ’68

(Denver) In a press statement, and email blast this morning, Recreate ’68 announced that Cynthia McKinney, Green Party candidate for President, and Rosa Clemente, Green Party candidate for Vice President, would be speaking at their rallies.

Both candidates, and the Green Party of Colorado, are refuting this announcement and are stating that neither candidate, nor the Green Party of Colorado, are in any way associated with Recreate ’68, nor will any of their candidates be speaking at or attending any event, nor are they in any way associated with the group Recreate ’68.
