Here's another protest:
Put together by a friend of a friend of mine.
Personally, I haven't submitted my e-mail, because no way in hell am I going down to D.C., not even to protest. On TV I'll just look like one of the W faithful, forget that. Also, I took a lot of time off for work for the election, so I'm not going to take time off for the swearing in (and NOT for that clown).
I do like the concept of the protest. If enough people participate, it'll be impressive.
I'm placing the link here so that the protest can get more publicity. I hope some people can get something out of this.
The site has a few more links, I'll list them here:

Below the fold I've placed the complete text of the initial page for the website. To save people from clicking all over the place.
The election is over. The fight is not.
Bush's election is bad for the US, and even worse for the rest of the world. But elections are only one part of democracy. We need to think strategically about direct action, learn from a rich history of nonviolent activism, and develop new tactics to take on this administration.
Let's start from the start: Inauguration Day.
On January 20th, 2005, we're calling for a new kind of action. The Bush administration has been successful at keeping protesters away from major events in the last few years by closing off areas around events and using questionable legal strategies to outlaw public dissent. We can use these obstacles to develop new tactics. On Inauguration day, we don't need banners, we don't need signs, we don't need puppets, we just need people.
We're calling on people to attend inauguration without protest signs, shirts or stickers. Once through security and at the procession, at a given signal, we'll all turn our backs on Bush's motorcade and continue through his speech and swearing in. A simple, clear and coherent message
