On 9/11 survivors of Katrina will commit a
NONVIOLENT act of Civil Disobedience:
Help build an encampment on the Washington DC Mall.

See you on the Mall on 9/11.
10,000 Katrina survivors will eventually camp on Bush’s doorstep.
They will camp in the seat of power and media demand truth and action.
They will stay there as long as it takes.
-Through the Katrina investigations
-Through the Supreme Court Hearings
-Through Bush’s last days of office, soon.
On 9/11 Bush will try to blindfold us with our own American flag.
Founding Bushville-DC on 9/11 will keep America’s attention on the criminal negligence of Bush.
