MAINE -

Sunday, July 1st at 1:00pm rally & protest march at the VILLAGE GREEN in Kennebunkport located in front of the Captain Lord Mansion on Ocean Ave.

When President Bush meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Kennebunkport,Maine people of conscience will converge in the town for a CITIZENS SUMMIT and protest MARCH TO THE BUSH COMPOUND permits have been granted

The INTERNATIONAL MEDIA, NATIONAL PRESS, LOCAL and INDY MEDIA will be present so we need to turn out thousands of protesters so that the world can see that we do not support the war and policies, both domestic and foreign, of Bush and his administration. We are calling for an immediate withdrawal of U.S. Troops from Iraq and the removal of permanent bases. We will also draw attention to the need to hold both Bush and Cheney accountable for the illegal war, torture and war crimes, the mutilation of our Constitution, the evisceration of habeas corpus, illegal surveillance of citizens and abuses of power. We want the IMPEACHMENT of both BUSH & CHENEY!!!

Speakers at the rally include: David Swanson from "After Downing Street"
John Kaminski, president of Maine Lawyers for Democracy,
Congressman Dennis Kucinich,
Melida and Carlos Arredondo from Military Families Speak Out and others.

Music by Pat Scanlon and Band as well as others

The MARCH to follow the rally.

STREET THEATER: A 7' tall statue of Lady Liberty will be lying in a casket and pulled on a cart as if in a funeral and death of liberty and democracy. Please wear black clothing to mourn the death of Liberty!!

LOGISTICS: Please do not drive to the assembly site as it will create an even bigger traffic jam than we are expecting as it is July 4Th weekend. PARK at the Kennebunk High School on RT#35 (Fletcher st) just off the RT#95 Kennebunk exit. We will shuttle you down to Kennebunkport. It is best to be there as close to 10:00am as possible as we have many folks to shuttle and limited buses. PLEASE do not arrive close to noon as we cannot guarantee your arrival to the rally on time. Once in the 'Port you can spend some time sight seeing until the rally starts.
