This is some shiesty shit going down at WSU - keep an eye out for similar happenings over yonder and across the mountains friends - campus police are on the prowl!!!

***PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO ANYONE YOU THINK MAY BE
CONCERNED ABOUT THE FOLLOWING ISSUE***

To all concerned;

I]Kirsten Pauli (the WSU WAC-Coordinator) several
weeks ago, brought to my attention a proposed
draft by Steve Hanson (The Chief of Police and
Director of Public Safety) and Rich Heath (Assistant
VP for Administration and Human Resources in Business
Affairs).

II]Mr. Hanson and Mr. Heath have drafted a proposal to
expand WAC code 504.15.930 to 504.15.935. I do not
believe this is the proper mode of action for
protecting the WSU campus and the welfare of its
citizens. I would like to see the campus organize and
put an end to this proposal. The proposal (a)needlessly
increases police power, and (b)it discourages and
infringes upon the use of alternative modes of
transportation around campus. I believe that WSU
should be promoting alternative modes of
transportation.

Subject: Join May 1 protest of James Dobson at Safeco Field



The religious right has rented Safeco Field for May 1, 2004, to hold an antigay rally. They are basing it on marriage rights, or I should say the restriction of marriage rights. They are planning to bus people in from around the state. They are currently predicting 10,000 attendees.



See: http://www.maydayformarriage.com



Focus on the Family's James Dobson will address this assembly. Dobson is a high visibility, arch-homophobe, and he will be a big draw for them. We are organizing a "Welcoming Party" for them. We are not about to let them arrive with no resistance. Here are the bare-bones details, and as more information is developed I will forward it to you:



Assemble Saturday, May 1, 2004, between 10:30 AM - 11AM. The earlier you arrive the better.

Where: Corner of S. Occidental St. and Royal Brougham, north end of Safeco Field.

What to do: At this time we have many details to work out.



For now, MARK YOUR CALENDARS AND SHOW UP. SPREAD THE WORD TO EVERY SUPPORTER OF MARRIAGE EQUALITY AND CIVIL RIGHTS THAT YOU KNOW. MAKE SIGNS.



We will provide some signs, but the bigger the variety and quantity of signs the better.



This is a legal, peaceful protest of the right wing coming to Seattle to hold a rally that opposes our rights. Although Dobson and crowd have every right to have this assembly, we have every right to protest it. We cannot let them come to Seattle and throw their bigotry in our faces without fighting back.



This is a PEACEFUL, if loud, protest. The Seattle police are likely to keep us on the opposite side of the street, separated from those attending the May Day for Marriage rally. This is as it should be to avoid violence and face to face confrontation. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO BLOCK PASSAGE TO THE RALLY. We can legally be there as long as we DO NOT BLOCK SIDEWALKS, PARKING LOTS, ENTRANCES, ETC.



Please spread the word so that our side can have a great turn out. Updates are forthcoming.

Anthropologist.

Subject:UW internet blues
Time:1:12 pm.
Mood: annoyed.
"Hooray, we've blocked internet access for almost all of the computers in the dorms, because you all have viruses. No, we don't need to warn you first. Just hunt around until you find how to get your computer unblocked (if you happen to ever find out that your computer IS blocked, and not just that the internet is down). Se, you can still go to the UW website. Then go to the student guide, find the computing help, and see what to do if your computer is blocked. Here's the website! But no, you can't get the patch you need because the website is 'temporarily down', and has been for the last 24 hours. Just keep refreshing every ten seconds. Sorry!"
