Seattle Protest (or will it be a riot?) planned with Bush victory

A Jenn Green article in the alternative Seattle newspaper The Stranger suggests that the public not take a Bush victory sitting down.

If Bush Wins--or Steals--This Election, Don't Just Sit There

If Bush gets reelected on November 2--if half of our fellow citizens lose their minds, or if he manages to steal the election again--storming Seattle's federal offices, prisons, and property will let him know that we're not going down without a fight this time. Here's a list of federal sites in Seattle that could be perfect places to protest:


If things get out of control, seek refuge in the office of Senator Patty Murray (she doesn't really like W. either).


But if we wind up with another 2000-style deadlock--if election results are contested in Ohio or Florida, or if Republicans try to stop people from voting in any state--that's where the real action will be. Protestors with guts should head to those states to make their voices heard. And if Bush manages to steal the election, then we'll see you in D.C. in January. Bring some eggs.

I truly have a fear that if President Bush is reelected Tuesday, there will be violence. And the conservatives won't be the ones to start it.
