Pope John Paul the Second is scheduled to hold an open > mass on August 15th at Cherry Creek State Park. American Atheists plans a protest march for the Pope at that time, too. - A FLYER - Pope Picket '93 For over a thousand years popes have told the West what to do. It's time that Atheists tell a pope what to do. We would suggest, "John Paul, go home!" -- The place: Denver, Colorado The date: August 13, 14, and 15, 1993 (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) The occasion: World Youth Day 1993. The pope has been invited by the Denver archdiocese for a massive conference [and what better state of repression for such a nice Catholic event?], ending in a papal mass on Sunday, August 15, 1993. The conference is expected to draw over 60,000 young people. At least 200,000 persons will be at the mass. Now, isn't the pope the very last person we want influencing the young? [nah, Pat Robertson is more dangerous than the pope.] American Atheist plans: There will be a number of opportunities to demonstrate against the pope and Roman Catholic policies during the weekend. Our plans will finalize as we work with local authorities. The weekend will include an informal cocktail party and lectures on the Roman Catholic church. Accomodations: Most hotels are already booked because of the massive crowds expected for the pope's visit. American Atheists has been able to reserve a block of rooms at the American Motel, 10101 I-70 Service Road North, Wheat Ridge, CO. The room rate is $36 per night plus 9.5 percent tax. Details on how to reserve your room will be sent after you register for the picket. Transportation: American Atheists will organize transportation from the official Pope Picket hotel to any demonstration sites. Golden West Airport Shuttle service provides transportation from Stapleton Airport to the American Motel. Cost is between $5 and $8. Registration: There is a $5 fee per person to participate in the Pope Picket '93. This non-refundable registration fee is charged to help cover costs of organizing the event. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- POPE PICKET '93 Registration Form [] I'm signing up for registration(s) for __________________person(s) at $5 per person.
