Default Procrastinators wanted!

Only 24 short days remain till the march on D.C.

Capt.TB wrote on January 24 that no more than half of one bus filled at any location. If you have been waiting to sign up, do it now. It isn't fair to Tony that he be bombarded the final week. After all, he is doing this in his spare time.

If you have been putting it off, there is no time like the present. Get your ticket now. Get one for your buddy as well.

As a side note; there has been several things written with regards to t shirts. While it might make for a nice memento of the day. My guess is that the 24th. of February will be pretty damn cold. More like parkas and a lot of under garments. Unlikely, even the largest t shirt would be worn over all that cold weather clothing.

I'm curious as to what or where we are at regarding signs, buttons, stickers, fliers or the like? I read something about the enviros having red baloons. Due to the fact that we are coming from all over the U.S. I would hope that we all have at least one item in common. T shirt, sticker, button or whatever.
We need to stand out just as much as the enviros. Labor usually brings the blow up rat, which was the subject of a couple of banning lawsuits. (lots of press coverage) Maybe we could bring a mock coffin with the wording on the side "here lies the costal fisherman". Another effective tool I've seen sucessfully used is the Grand greenback. The grand greenback looks like real U.S. currency when folded lying on the ground. Nobody ever walks by without picking it up. When they open it up it has the message on the inside. In our case, revise Magnusson Stevens act, protect our fishing rights.

Economy should be the message conveyed to congress. I have seen many figures bandied about as to the impact of fisheries shutdown. Money is what talks in D.C.

We have to clearly state our message and stand out from the rest. But, again numbers will be our best tool in the box. Get off the fence, we are all in this! Get on board today!

Pete
