We got an AP report out- excellent :)

D.C. Voting Rights Advocates Hope To Sway International Group
Friday July 01, 2005 2:40pm

Washington (AP) – Supporters of D.C. voting rights are hoping to gain some key international support.

More than 100 people rallied at Freedom Plaza to educate members of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, which promotes democracy around the world.

The group is holding meetings at a nearby hotel.

D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton is among those who spoke at the rally. Norton, who can vote in committee but not on the House floor, says D.C. residents are tired of being “outsiders” in their own country.

Norton plans to meet with the international group.

Four voting machines have been set up on Freedom Plaza, surrounded by a chain link fence and yellow signs that read “D.C. Residents Keep Out! By Order of Congress.”

Not very interesting or very informative, but I am glad it was written. Too bad few outlets picked up this news bit.

OSCE Rally Friday!
|| 6/28/2005 || 7:52 am || Comments Off on OSCE Rally Friday! || ||

Come out if you can make it:

On Friday, July 1, 2005, rally for DC voting rights as the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Parliamentary Assembly holds their annual session in Washington, DC.

A series of events are planned and designed to encourage the more than 300 international diplomats to pass a resolution supporting full congressional voting rights for DC.

1. From 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM, we need volunteers to rally outside of the host hotel, the JW Marriott on 14th Street at Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, to greet the parliamentarians as they arrive for the beginning of their weekend long meeting.

2. At 12:00 noon on the western side of Freedom Plaza, Mayor Williams and Team DC Democracy will unveil an artistic installation created to visually represent DC’s denial of democracy.

3. Immediately following the unveiling of the installation, there will be a rally outside of the JW Marriott on 14th Street at Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, to greet Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert as they arrive to address the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly.

Don’t forget to wear blue!

Today a certain someone got a call from an irate parliamentarian because I spoofed the www.oscepa.org website. My rationale for the spoof was to draw media attention to the website, but instead of saying that I can do what I damn well please, I opted to “work well with other’s” and spent the entire night reworking the website. check www.osceindc.com

I found a great article by one of my DC democracy colleagues, Bill Mosley for the DC based, independent newspaper, the Common Denominator:

DC City Council Passes OSCE Resolution
|| 6/7/2005 || 5:04 pm || Comments Off on DC City Council Passes OSCE Resolution || ||

The Parliamentarians of the OSCE are coming to DC for the first time next month, and we are going make sure they pass a resolution condeming the U.S. government for it’s denial of voting rights to the 572,000 Washington, DC residents. This 4th of July might be more fun than last year!

A RESOLUTION
_______________

IN THE COUNCIL OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
_______________

To declare, on an emergency basis, the sense of the Council on welcoming the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe Parliamentary Assembly to the District of Columbia and calling on them to adopt a resolution at their assembly in support of full voting rights for citizens of the District of Columbia.

RESOLVED, BY THE COUNCIL OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, That this resolution may be cited as the “Sense of the Council in Support of Full and Equal Voting Rights for Citizens of the District of Columbia Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe Emergency Resolution of 2005”.

Sec. 2. The Council finds that:
(1) The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) is made up of 55 states, including the United States, from Europe, Central Asia, and North America, and forms the largest regional security organization in the world.
(2) OSCE institutions include negotiating, decision-making, and operational bodies, which deal with a wide range of issues including human rights issues.
(3) The OSCE Parliamentary Assembly will hold its first Annual Session meeting in the United States July 1 through 5, in Washington, D.C.
(4) Approximately 572,000 residents of the District of Columbia, in violation of established international human rights standards, are denied full voting rights in their national legislature.
(5) Ensuring equal voting rights for citizens of member states is a fundamental OSCE commitment.

Sec. 3. It is the sense of the Council that:
(1) The Council of the District of Columbia welcomes the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly to Washington, D.C., and to the United States.
(2) The Council calls on the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly to adopt a resolution at its Annual Session observing that the approximately 572,000 residents of Washington, D.C., continue to be denied equal and full voting rights in the United State House of Representatives and the United States Senate, and insisting that the government of the United States adopt such legislation as may be necessary to grant the residents of its capital city equal and full voting rights in their own national legislature.

Sec. 4. The Secretary of the Council of the District of Columbia shall transmit copies of this resolution upon its adoption to the President of the United States, the Mayor of the District of Columbia, the District of Columbia Delegate to the United States Congress, the chairpersons of the committees of the United States Congress with oversight and budgetary jurisdiction over the District of Columbia, the presiding officer of the OSCE and to the presiding officer of the OSCE’s Parliamentary Assembly.

Sec. 5. This resolution shall take effect immediately upon the first date of publication in the District of Columbia Registar.

Now I really need to work on the website www.osceindc.com
