The Coffee Party Movement

Let's hear it for Annabel Park of Silver Spring, MD, who, when really upset by the Tea Party Movement and it's Fox News promoters, started a response movement in her living room: The Coffee Party Movement. And, wonder of wonders, it has caught on... enough so that I've added Coffee Party to my blog rolls. Here's the Coffee Party Mission Statement:

The Coffee Party Movement gives voice to Americans who want to see cooperation in government. We recognize that the federal government is not the enemy of the people, but the expression of our collective will, and that we must participate in the democratic process in order to address the challenges that we face as Americans. As voters and grassroots volunteers, we will support leaders who work toward positive solutions, and hold accountable those who obstruct them.

And here is Annabel on how she started it all: Interested? Then go HERE and join the Coffee Party Movement. I did. Under The LobsterScope

Time for Progressives to Organize Democratically

I think this is a tremendous opportunity for progressives to start organizing democratically at the local level, rather than waiting for instructions from top-down organizations like MoveOn, OFA, etc.  I urge everyone to go to a Coffee Party meeting in their area, or to set up a chapter if one doesn't exist.  Let's take back the streets!
