At about 4:00/4:30 PM those who wish to do so will walk slowly over to and then into the lobby of the building where Senator Clinton’s office is located.
There will be a reading of the names of those killed in Iraq at the lobby.
Other actions may accompany this event such as attempting to speak with Clinton ’s staff at her office or perhaps by arranging a meeting for Feb 22 with her staff in the cafeteria on the lower level. The Code Pink ribbons may be used in some fashion as well (with the names of those killed). There may also be a delivery of the hundreds of signed post cards against the war or perhaps letters.
The message here is something like---not one more dead, not one more dollar, / we cant wait till Jan 20, 2009 to end the war,/ heal the wounded, bring the troops home, end the war.
