(This image from "Stop Harper.")
Of course inspired by Brigette DePape -- blessed young woman.
Got mine the other day (while at a rally in downtown Toronto) from a woman also named Janet, after I admired it.
The one she gave me is hand-made. Good size. Attention-grabber, I notice, as I walk down the street.
Hope to see lots & lots & lots more of them in the days ahead.
p.s. the Green Party petition is about serious election nonsense the Harper government is up to. Please check it out, sign it, Facebook it, Tweet it, send it to friends via e-mail ... & do not let up!!!!! We are now into a serious battle to defeat this rapacious (& not even remotely democratic ) government. Your energy is needed!
p.p.s. you might want to visit a site that has plenty of info about "Harper's Crimes Against Humanity."
p.p.p.s. & also -- ** Report called “Thinking Outside the Ballot Box: How People Power Can Stop Harper’s Agenda and Create Fundamental Change,” by Brigette DePape (written for the Council of Canadians).
p.s. # 4: & if you go to this page, you can order some cool Stop Harper stuff of your own!!
