Change We Knead Now


THE CHANGE WE KNEAD NOW - BAKE BREAD FOR WORLD PEACE
Sit with us outside the White House and bake bread for World Peace in Lafayette Park starting on July 4th, 2009


We see that many of Obama's supporters are growing disillusioned as he has not implemented the ideas they felt he stood for, and many say that something must be done this summer to stop his drift way from the change he was elected to champion.

We spent trillions to bail out America's corporations, now it's time to bail out the American people. Obama said we would need to push him to do the right thing. This is our time.

We have chosen six changes we believe Obama can enact this year, and that would have the most impact toward returning power to the public, providing jobs, slowing climate change, and providing economic stability and security for the future. We saw how easy it was to find trillions of dollars to bail out the financial industry. It is clear that Obama can find the trillions needed to implement the changes that will benefit all the people in this country that voted for him.

Our proposed strategy involves sitting outside the White House with a petition of six changes. Some of us will bake bread in solar ovens to hand out to the hungry. We intend to have hundreds, and then thousands of people sitting outside the White House at any one time. We will give the signed petitions to Obama. It is legal to sit in front of the White House and it is legal to have a petition and bake bread in a solar oven. The solar oven is a symbol of just how easy to is to replace an oil-based society with a solar-powered future. Nuclear power and "clean" coal are NOT the alternative energy America voted for. As thousands sit outside the White House promoting these changes, supporters at home can show their support by downloading the petition and having it signed by their friends, family and coworkers. Supporters can organize local civil actions baking bread in solar ovens. We can also wear or display THE RAINBOW RIBBON OF WORLD PEACE to show how many support our six changes.

It is clear that Obama is listening to the interests of America's corporate rulers. The American people must take action to get his attention and make it necessary for his administration to make the bold changes his supporters elected him to implement. Letters, e-mails and phone calls have not applied enough pressure against the power of corporate lobbyists, campaign contributions, and media spin, to create the change we need now!

Sincerely yours,

Franco Mares and Keith McHenry
