WINTER SOLDIERS Defend Constitution March 19, 2008 (IVAW)*
in Tribal gear, 65 year old Buffy Saint Marie honored us with anthems,
including Universal Soldier on the
Independence Ave side of the DC Mall, at our March marking the start of
the 6th year of War and Occupation for Profit
After Scaling a 10 foot high wrought iron fence, at the top of the
National Archives steps, and taking the high ground, 30 feet above the
throng, our WINTER SOLDIERS educate the 1,500 tourists who wrap around
the Archives Constitution Ave and 9th St, NW, sides, lined up for
security checks, underneath IVAW.
Folks have to realize that we Vets take
the Oath to Protect and Defend the Constitution against
ALL enemies, Foreign and Domestic, including our
Treasonous Commander-in-Chief, GW Bush.
This OATH NEVER
This pic gives a better illustration of the depth of the crowd of
tourists and gawkers being educated.
There is a 24 foot wide ramp that leads down a slope, directly
towards our heroes, to get the Tourists into the Archives' basement
A huge reproduction of the Preamble, and
the part of the Constitution establishing "co-equal" divisions between
the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial branches, was unfurled, and
attached to the wall, at the bottom of the ramp, and a 40 foot section
actually served as a carpet to the ramp, helping the tourists
understand that they, as well as Bush, are trampling on the
Constitution, as long as they fail to protest Bush and his UNITARY
Executive Branch usurping the Legislative and Judiciary Powers of our
The Constitution, an antiquated piece of parchment
that embodies the most noble foundations for a free and just
government, is currently under siege
We, the people of the United States, in Order to form a
more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility,
provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure
the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and
establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
The Police, in a move reminiscent of VVAW's Dewey
Canyon III demos, 37 years ago, negotiated a plea deal, with
our Winter Soldiers: "Come down, after 90
minutes, and nobody gets arrested"
We packed up our Citizens' Warrant for
the Arrest of Bush & Cheney, and marched up Constitution Ave to the
Hastily assembled, and heavily armed SWAT TEAMS assure Iraq
Veterans Against the War that there's NO JUSTICE, @ the Justice
Department. The SWAT TEAMS had respect for our Veterans.

Constitution Action, posted on YOU TUBE already,
