Yet another weird SF fan


I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Pointless Event Alert!

According to Geek Girl:

If you live in or near New York City, or plan on being there in early October, please sign up to be part of a very special event that the Yes Men are planning with some amazing activist groups.

We can’t tell you the details right now, but it will be about the Iraq War, and will involve doing simple public performances individually or in groups. It will be easy, outrageously fun, and will culminate in what promises to be a super-fun outdoor dance party.

You can visit http://www.BecauseWeWantIt.org/ to sign up, and to sign up for cell phone alerts so that if anything changes the day of the event you’ll know right away.

In 2003, the thugs in charge of Washington began destroying a country they knew posed no threat. Five years later, that country is still the most dangerous place on earth, and ours isn’t doing so well either. This action is about trying to change the political discussion around this, the biggest crime of the twenty-first century.

Onwards!
The Yes Men and friends

p.s. If you can’t attend, but would like to help with a donation, please visit http://theyesmen.org/donate/. Many of you already have, which is why this is moving forward!

It looks like they'll be too busy patting each other on the back to make sense. BTW, can there be a counterprotest?

Hmmm… When I looked up the Wikipedia entry for Yes Men, I found there's been a counterprotest for one of their events:

Not all actions succeed. In July 2007 an attempt to pretend to film a documentary about Milton Friedman in order to obtain interviews with right wing think tanks was foiled by the Cato Institute when their cover story did not work out. Paint was thrown on them by Bureaucrash, the Competitive Enterprise Institute supporter pro-capitalist culture jammers, on their way out.[11]

I suppose that means the skunk bombs won't be needed after all …

er, you might want to either remove the relative links or make them absolute.
