Americans are using the Net to organise a series of protest rallies against the election of George Dubya.

The "Not My President's Day" event will take place in New York this Sunday, the day before the US's official President's Day. There are also other protests planned across the country on the same day, which aim to combine speakers, music and street theatre.

"We are part of the grassroots movement which started on the Internet and spread across America in outrage over the electoral coup resulting in George W. Bush assuming residency in the White House," the site states.

"Our goals are to protest against the installation of an illegitimate president; to demand that our elected officials oppose the unmandated agenda of the illegitimate president; and to call for the enactment of electoral reforms necessary to ensure that all future elections will have outcomes based faithfully on the will of the people."

The site, run by the group Democracy March - which organised the Inauguration Day protest in Washington last month, contains details of all this weekend's meetings throughout the US, including Los Angeles and Boston. It also provides online discussion groups to help protestors communicate with people in their area.

"We are convinced that the election was stolen as a result of large scale disenfranchisement of minorities and others, defective ballots, and possible fraud, as well as an outrageous and illogical Supreme Court decision that stopped the counting," the site adds.

"However, now that Bush has become President we feel that Bush's dangerous, extremist, unmandated agenda should be fought against not only because it is wrong, but because his agenda, like Bush himself, is illegitimate."

For those unable to attend, it also has a link to a site offering nifty "Impeach Bush" bumper stickers for free. ®
