  1. I just found out about this and so doubt if I can attend this one. However I am very interested in being a part of an affinity group from Northeast Ohio for the June actions in Columbus. I was at the Keystone XL demos by myself and it kinda sucked being a delegation of one. Long time community activist and did CD training 20+ years ago for a blockade of the CIA HQ. Anyhow. My e-mail address is and a phone number is 216-245-1073.
