Dallas for the 50th?
#61
No thanks.
I am not longer willing to be a demonstration dummy for the pigs.
Lesson learned long ago.
Anyone ever involved in direct political action knows the reality of the militarized police.
Worse now than then.
Read not to contradict and confute;
nor to believe and take for granted;
nor to find talk and discourse;
but to weigh and consider.

Friends,

I am writing you as current and past registrants to COPA conferences in Dallas and COPA contacts with a survey and an update on the conference. As you know, we have been trying to assert our First Amendment right to hold our annual Moment of Silence on the Grassy Knoll on November 22 at 12:30 pm, as researchers have done for the last 49 years. In 2011 the Sixth Floor Museum, the Mayor of Dallas and a Dallas public relations firm, along with members of the Dallas elite and power structure, began efforts to block off Dealey Plaza from the public on November 22 and to illegally prevent "conspiracy theory" from being spoken there. Their motive is clearly to control the message that the world press will come to see that day in Dealey Plaza, favoring public relations to the truth.

We spent the better part of two years opposing and challenging these efforts by meeting with the Mayor, writing to the "50th" planning committee he created to plan his ticketed event, and contacting city administrators working on the planning and blocking our permit for our traditional event. See more details in the attached press release.

We have met with complete silence until just recently, when the Mayor proposed to let us gather at an alternate location not visible to the crowd or the press and to allow us access to the Grassy Knoll once their event ended and people were allowed to disperse. We insisted that all those who applied for a ticket to the Mayor's event be notified that our event would follow and proposed better alternatives that would allow us to preserve our rights at the place and time when it could have the most effect. The letter that follows, sent to COPA this week, represents a final offer from the City of Dallas, rejecting any compromises proposed:
Mr. Judge,

In response to your recent email (September 16th), as I have previously stated, we will be holding a JFK commemoration event on Friday, November 22nd in Dealey Plaza. Shortly after the program is completed, we will make every effort to have the site available for your group. We estimate the time that the event will conclude and begin to clear to be approximately 2:15p.m. We are holding a location approximately two blocks from Dealey Plaza that will be available for your group to gather, watch the program on the provided monitor, and stage the move to Dealey Plaza around 2:30p.m.

The Mayor has agreed to post information regarding your event on the city's website to assure the public is aware. We will not be able to accommodate your other requests--- to move the event to American Airlines Center; to change the start time; or to move the barrier fence to the north side of Elm St.

We look forward to working with you cooperatively to announce your event on the city's website; to locate your group nearby Dealey Plaza, and to assist in moving them expeditiously to Dealey Plaza as soon at the event clears.

Please feel free to call me in order to work out the details.

Sincerely,
Mary K. Suhm
City of Dallas

The 50th: Honoring the Memory of President John F. Kennedy

http://www.50thhonoringjohnfkennedy.com/...dium=email


Dallas citizens will honor the life, leadership and legacy of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 2013, the 50th anniversary of his death.
All those receiving admission to Dealey Plaza on Nov. 22 will be notified by email between Thursday, Oct. 10, and Tuesday, Oct. 15. The email will appear in your inbox from The 50th: Honoring the Memory of President John F. Kennedy. Due to limited space at Dealey Plaza, if you do not receive notification by Oct. 15, you will not receive admission. However, you are welcome to watch a live stream of the event at one of the free, downtown, outdoor broadcasts. Check this site soon for a list of those viewing sites...::angeldevil::

Security in the Plaza. Listen towards the end where the manager says "The Dallas Police understand the sensitivity of the event". What is there to cause any sensitivity if Oswald was a lone nut who killed the president alone 50 years ago?

I'd love to organize sky-writing planes that write "CIA Killed JFK" in the sky over the phony commemoration.

The City Of Dallas has removed the 'X' marking the spot where JFK's fatal shot intercepted and exploded his head [from the front]. They are whitewashing the entire event! Shameful!::face.palm::

Ridiculous. I heard some city hack saying that they needed to 'smooth out' the area to stop people from tripping over. As if people trip over painted surfaces.....
