    so I did a bit of stalking and apparently you have Bjork, Orwell, Sinclair, and Chomsky quotes on your site - all of them socialists.

    So I guess the issue for you is one of message disciple. And while I am behind you, you have to say that protests are one of the few venues for people on the left to coalition build. With the Internet it is only there for people who actively seek it out and not right in front of peoples eyes.

    And as I am sure you know, most Civil Rights pioneers are/were socialists - many abolitionists, sufferigists, womens rights, and black civil rights leaders. They have a place in a civil rights march as much as the ACLU.

    •  Message discipline absolutely. (1+ / 0-)

      I have participated in several protests over the years.  Quite a few people are turned off by "mission creep" of ancillary groups.  The booths and signage must be on point.
