United For Peace and Justice Backs Down on Central Park Rally Request

So there will be no Central Park rally during the Republican National Convention...

United for Peace and Justice announced today it would accept an alternative march route for its Aug. 29 anti-war/anti-Bush demonstration that will end on the West Side Highway instead of Central Park.

The march is expected to begin at 23rd Street and Seventh Avenue, head uptown past convention headquarters at Madison Square Garden, turn west on 34th Street and end with a rally along the West Side Highway.

UFPJ had proposed five different sites to end the march -- three options in Central Park, plus Times Square or Third Avenue -- and the city rejected all of them.

Last week, the NYPD essentially told UFPJ accept the West Side Highway or sue.

Leslie Cagan, who heads UFPJ, defended the group's decision at a noon-time press conference: "We need to move on, so we decided to take the high road here."

UFPJ's decision has generated some heated debate on the NYC Indymedia site.

Mouse Bloc takes Broadway 8/29!

"If one mouse can scare an elephant, what can thousands do?"

As the Republican elephant tramples into our city, thousands of mischievous mice will confront them in the streets! On August 29 at 5PM, over 13,000 Republican fatcat delegates will be attending eight Disneyfied Broadway shows in Midtown Manhattan.

Every good little mouse in NYC knows the Republicans are only here to steal our cheese. This is our city! These are our theaters! Thousands of mice will swarm the streets to remind the forgetful old elephants that they are not welcome in this town. They will not be able to have fun at our expense without facing thousands of pissed off mice in the streets.

The idea is simple: show up at 4:30 at one of eight theater locations and be ready to topple the elephant to the ground. Mice love nothing more than theater in the street, loud drums, music of all kinds, radical cheerleaders, marching bands, anti-capitalist preachers, dumpster divers, bike blockers, pissed off workers, disrupters, rowdies, "out of town" troublemakers", roving affinity groups, pink bloques, kissing queers, clowns, pirates, khaki-clad yuppies, radical gardeners, puppetistas, pagans, samba bands, chicks with dicks, revel-utionaries, fire-eaters, throwers & spitters, drag kings and queens, billionaires, punks-be they crusty or clean!, zapatistas, autonomistas and of course, your friendly local ANARCHISTS! They claim the people of NYC are a 'threat to the city'-we say the Republicans and their agenda are the real threat.

Do bring-->friends, family, affinity groups, bikes, costumes, mouse ears, tails and whiskers. cheese (soy or otherwise), anything you need for a good action.

Don't bring-->Padded blocs-cuz its the NYPD and this ain't Italy! Black Blocs-->cuz this ain’t Seattle and its 2004!

Come join us on the 29th for some action outside of the NYPD-approved 'frozen zone'. Solidarity to the August 31 actions! Updates will be posted to the NYC Independent Media Center site at http://nyc.indymedia.org
