Casino Free Philadelphia: Injunction endangers referendum
Record of Iraq War Lies to Air April 25 on PBS
AN INVITATION: Meet the Kucinich for President Coalition


We wanted you to hear from it first: The Supreme Court just took a major step in knocking the referendum off the ballot.

Friday late-afternoon The Supreme Court put a preliminary injunction on the referendum. That keeps the referendum from being on the ballot until further notice.

It's an outrage. Our vote is not a legal football to be kicked around by judges. It is a right, nothing something we should have ever had to fight for. So we have every right to be angry at this decision! It's against that which is deepest in a democratic system: voting and the right for the people to have their say. This is round one of a multiple-round fight. The implementation of the preliminary injunction is a little unclear since the ballots are already printed. Stickers should not be put to cover up the question on the physical ballots, because there still remains a chance the injunction will be lifted. So hope remains.

Yet our outrage needs to be heard. Money and undue influence should not trump the interests of the public in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania.

We have two immediate actions:

1) Send a letter to the Gaming Oversight Commission to tell them this situation is unacceptable. We should not be worried about whether our right to vote is going to be upheld.

2) Join us for a "Our Vote is Not a Legal Football" rally. Join us Monday, 12noon at City Hall [West-side, Dilworth Plaza]. We will take a visit to our visiting Supreme Court Judges, too.

Let others know, by passing this message on across the City and State. The bottomline: This is an outrage; and this is the moment to show what we are made of. Our movement will only use this fire to grow.

Warmly, - Daniel Hunter

Record of Iraq War Lies to Air April 25 on PBS By David Swanson 
-   USLAW Coordinator []   Sent: 2007 April 14 Saturday 1:42 AM

    Bill Moyers has put together an amazing 90-minute video documenting
the lies that the Bush administration told to sell the Iraq war to the
American public, with a special focus on how the media led the charge.
I've watched an advance copy and read a transcript, and the most
important thing I can say about it is: Watch PBS from 9:00 to 10:30 PM on
Wednesday, April 25.      
What comes out of watching this show is a powerful realization
that no investigation is needed by Congress, just as no hidden
information was needed for the media to get the story right in the first
place. The claims that the White House made were not honest mistakes. But
neither were they deceptions. They were transparent and laughably absurd
falsehoods. And they were high crimes and misdemeanors.
     Moyers's wonderful movie is marred by a single line - the next to the
last sentence - in which he says, "The number of Iraqis killed, over
35,000 last year alone, is hard to pin down." A far more accurate figure
could have been found very easily.

Hello Friend,

Here is the link to Dennis Kucinich's website.  Even though we are most impressed with him as the true ANTI-WAR candidate, on this site you will find out more about Dennis and other issues that are important to him and the American People.
