The D.C. goverment and the federal Department of the Interior continue to do their best to disrupt organization for the September 15th march to end the war. Here's an audio link to an interview with one of the organizers for the march. The government is trying to make the organizers take down the signs that publicize the war. A local Fox News station started this, campaigning to get its listeners to complain about the signs.
You can also contact the D.C. government and ask them to stop trying to interfere with First Amendment rights. The best way to take action is to call the Director of Department of Public Works, William O. Howland, Jr. at 202-673-6833, and the Mayor of DC, Adrian Fenty, at 202-724-8876.

The September 15th March is timed to bring thousands of people to D.C. to demand an end to the war just as the "Patreus" report is being issued to Congress. It's too important a chance to bring pressure on the Congress for us to allow Fenty's D.C. government and Bush's Department of the Interior to use harassment in order to silence us.
