PORT TOWNSEND — A scattering of North Olympic Peninsula protesters are expected to join in ‘The World Can’t Wait’ protest Thursday in Olympia, said Brinnon resident Kenn Dzaman.
Dzaman is one of several organizers of the event being staged near the state Capitol to protest a White House administration they believe is no longer representing them.
“I’ve got eight people coming from Brinnon,” said Dzaman, who was buying on Tuesday large quantities of water and snacks to take to participants involved in the event.
Dzaman said the protest, which is taking place in conjunction with others around the country, is because of distress and anger over White House policies concerning war in Iraq, torture, domestic spying and other issues.
Organizers are urging students to walk out of school and businesses to close their doors in protest.
Protests are also planned in Everett, Seattle, Tacoma, Spokane, Twisp and Wenatchee.
The Olympia protests and demonstrations will be staged on the Capitol’s West Campus Lawn at Tivoli Fountain.
