Caroling for Peace at Ed Royce’s Open House on Friday

Hey, you… My favorite progressive activists in North OC! Are you looking for a great opportunity to do some Holiday Caroling? And would you also like a chance to ask your Member of Congress to bring the troops home from Bush’s failed occupation of Iraq? Great, then join the OC Peace Coaltion for a special event tomorrow in front of Rep. Ed Royce‘s (R-Right-wing Tool) office in Downtown Fullerton!

Here’s more from the DFA-OC Calendar:

Orange County Peace Coalition and MFSO are planning to have a demonstration in front of Congressman Ed Royce’s office in Fullerton from 5-8 pm during his Open House. The group wants to have signs and pass out literature to people coming to the Open House, and a some of us want to sing the holiday Peace Carols that Vern and Pat [two great local peace activists] wrote last year at this time. Congressman Royce is a strong supporter of the war in Iraq, and although he has met with MFSO members, he is not making any effort to bring the troops home now and says that the soldiers will come home when they have “finished the job”. We have been to this office many times and need to keep the pressure on Congressman Royce to do the right thing. His office is at 305 North Harbor Blvd., Suite 300, Fullerton, CA 92832. We plan on meeting at street level below his office at 5 pm. His Open House will last at least two hours.

Wow, now doesn’t that sound like something we should do? Isn’t it time that we give Ed Royce a message that we’re sick and tired of him putting the desires of Bush-Cheney over the demands of the people? Isn’t it time that we ask him to stop funding Bush’s failed occupation, and start funding the needs of the people here at home?

Yes, that’s what I thought. So can I expect to see you tomorrow at 5:00 at Ed Royce’s place? See you there.

    Caroling?! They sit in and get arrested at Loretta’s and are going to sing to Ed?! How benevolent of them…and a waste of time.

    Good for MFSO and the OC Peace Coalition for keeping pressure on Royce. We have seen too many anniversaries of the beginning of this war and commemorated too many deaths. It’s time to land helicopters on the roofs of the American Embassy and get the heck out. We’re not doing anyone any good there except the mortuaries.

    Gila-

    Good point! Our progressive activist friends are now putting pressure on CReeps that should be pressured, so we should commend them for that. They’re asking one of our Reps to do what his constituents are asking him to do, and I think we should support them in that.

    Everyone else-

    Jeez, what’s your problem? We’re not talking about crazed LaRouchies, but true progressive patriots who are asking their Rep in Congress to do as the people ask and end Bush’s failed occupation of Iraq. I’m sorry that you don’t appreciate real citizen action, but I do. As long as they’re going after these darned CReeps, I’ll support them.

    I was there for over 90 minutes and passed the carolers on the street underneath the windows. I do not remember anyone inside the event even mentioning it. I just thought that the patron at the adjacent restaurants were being serenading. There is nightlife in downtown Fullerton and Royce’s open house served food, cookies, and punch. Thanks for adding more festivity to the occasion. Nobody even knew that it was a protest unless it was the staff. I heard not one comment in over 90 minutes of socializing at the event.
