Recreate 68 Fizzles
It's more like
"Recreate the Days of Rage", the 1969 protest by Billy Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn:
Lt. Ron Saunier, a Denver Police Department spokesman, said the number of protesters that actually showed up was nowhere near what groups had told city officials to expect.
Recreate 68 had projected that as many as 25,000 or even 50,000 people would participate in activities this week. Instead, a group estimated by police at 1,000 to 1,200 participated in a Recreate 68 anti-war march Sunday morning, with a much smaller group parading up Colfax Avenue later in the day.
What if they decided to give a revolution and nobody came?

The speakers included Cindy Sheehan (lately famous for running against Nancy Pelosi because she's too conservative); Ron Kovic (a wounded Viet Nam war vet, and perennial protestor, who had the audacity to announce through a thousand watt public address system that he could not speak his mind in America); and the indefatigable ignoramus Ward Churchill. Professor Churchill, you might recall, claimed that the people slaughtered on 9/11 had "provoked" the attacks.
Update II: They might get more participants if some of them showered monthly:
Sheesh, looks like those bandannas might have a double purpose. More photos here
