Rad Cheers: Newslettery

CINDY SHEEHAN and CRAIG & CINDY CORRIE SATURDAY (TOMORROW!) May 12 in Tonasket, Wa.!

Tonasket Peace Festival. If you are going "wha?", so are we. Tonasket, for the non-natives, is a small (< 1,000 resident) town up near the northern border of Washington State. It is a place renowned for both its community of hippies, artists and folks living off the grid and for its conservative population. The yearly Peace Festival is a grass roots event meant to create community in our varying groups throughout the PNW.

The announcement that Sheehan and the Corries are keynote speakers was held back until yesterday because the organizers want to diminish any conservative backlash and counter demonstrations and keep the proceedings friendly and productive.

Tonasket is in the Okanagon - one of the most beautiful places on earth. The landscape alone is reason enough for the drive, but the event itself will be one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences and the notice and remote location make for an intimate and really community-oriented event.

Please respond here if you are going, would like to go or have room to drive others. My car is busted, but I may be able to cajole a borrowed vehicle and have one or two free seats from Spokane. So if someone is going and has room I will teach y'all cheers the whole way there and back!
