Who Are We?

The citizens organizing the Participatory Democracy web site and the "We The People" march on Washington D.C. are ordinary working class citizens. We come from various regions of the United States and are concerned about both public and media apathy regarding the Bush Administration policies. We are a nonpartisan group and share a common concern for human rights. We are not paid or elected political figures, just ordinary, middle-class Americans.

We collectively, are concerned that the media is not investigating what events led to the September attack on America.

We collectively, are concerned that the media is not investigating Enron's role in shaping U.S. energy policy.

We collectively, are concerned that the media is not investigating the Constitutional erosions to civil liberties levied by the Justice Department.

We collectively, are concerned that the media is not investigating Vice President Cheney's role in providing arms to Iraq.

We collectively, are concerned that the public isn't demanding Congress AND the media investigate these and other issues. "We The People" demand that the Bush Administration and Congressional representatives remember that 'our' government is supposed to be representative of "The People".

The two principal organizers of this protest march hail from the Boston, Massachusetts area. They are a private school teacher and a local businessman who are passionate observers and patriotic Americans. Their intent is to inform the elected leaders of this nation that the citizens will not idly stand by and let this government erode the Constitutional Rights of every American.

 

 

Come Wind, Come Weather...

"Beware the Ides of March!"

Unfortunately, we were not able to gather the permits for our March Protest in Washington D.C. We are revamping this web site to coinside with a national flyer campaign in partnership with The Alliance For Democracy. Stay tuned.
