250,000 Tell Bush Team: You Flunk : Ads Surround Department of Education

Susan Notes: Grassroots activism making itself heard (and seen). What have you done for the resistance today?

Over 250,000 citizens have signed the petition demanding that President Bush fire Secretary of Education Rod Paige for accusing teachers of belonging to a "terrorist organization."

To make sure that Rod Paige and the Bush team get the message, the Institute for America's Future, TomPaine.com, and MoveOn.org are launching advertisements at bus stops and subway stations all around the Department of Education headquarters in Washington, DC.

The campaign, paid for by contributions from petition signers, will run for one month.

The Institute for America's Future and MoveOn.org have teamed up for this campaign to show that Americans are tired of insults and broken promises. And that when it comes to responsibility and accountability, the Bush administration should walk the walk, not simply talk the talk.
