This is a summary of the latest news and information regarding Operation
Save America's upcoming event in Columbus, Ohio, and the organization of an
effective response. For details, go to http://www.theanswerisno.org/.
* The Operation Save America homepage
(http://www.operationsaveamerica.org/), as of 6/17/2004, displays two wildly
false accusations against the two of us who operate this website,
incorrectly claiming that we somehow "disrupted" their national event three
years ago in Wichita, Kansas, and mischaracterizing our work today as
attempting to "silence their voice" here in Columbus.
Both accusations are false; they are so false, we have no idea what they
stem from. Our activities in Wichita were primarily confined to videography,
documenting events at the clinic there and in outdoor public spaces
Certainly, today, encouraging the citizens of Columbus to answer them by
saying "No" - from a position of understanding what it is they are actually
demanding - will not be "silencing" them in any way.
We will be preparing a more detailed response to this matter in the next few
