Support a Green Serena Blaiz to Crawford

Good folks,

I am goin' to Crawford to be with Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a soldier killed in Iraq who is outside Bush's ranch demanding an "audience" with him. (It's been all over the news, but for more background, see www.codepink4peace.org and/or www.meetwithcindy.org) She's reportedly has been threatened with arrest on Thursday, so maybe I will be too -- Guilt by Association.

I am "without means", and thanks to out-of-state family visiting, without responsibilities for much of August. Fortunately this gives me the freedom to make this trip, but unfortunately not much in the way of resources to undertake it, so if you would like to help me out, your donations will help with gas, food (unless I decide to join the hunger strike) and maybe even

If you are supportive, and can afford it, please toss a few coins in my Paypal hat:
go to http://www.gypsyresort.com/re and look for the "donations" link under "Welcome" near the top.

While in Crawford, I will report for www.okimc.org, and other alternative news sources, and will take pics and share what I get newswise when I have internet access.

Most of you getting this know me and know of my activism and community work. But for the rest of you, here is some of my contributions to local progressive causes, as way of bona fides for my appeal:

Web sites created/maintained for:

OK Greens
Oklahoma Code Pink
Green Commons
Green Bloggers
Oklahoma Committee for Conscientious Objectors
Oklahoma Indymedia
Oklahoma Progressive Network (pending), Peace House

Organizing work for: OCCO, OK Greens, Oklahoma
Progressive Network, Code Pink

And if you can't send $, please send moral support via
your thoughts and/or email! I'll probably need it.

Serena Blaiz
