It wasn't until I got to the end of his entry that I realized he was in Chicago , as he urged his readers to join him on August 8 at noon at the Palmer hotel to protest ALEC.
Good for him.
It is really great that the unions are rallying at noon on the 8th to say NO to ALEC -
The protest at noon on the 8th is not the only protest and yet it seems to be getting ALL the press.
There is a three day protest action planned.
The rally on the 8th will get plenty of press - cause there will be hundreds of people - BUT we also need positive press on the 7th and the 9th - we need press for all three days and that means we need LOTS of people for ALL three days.
At protest at the ALEC meeting in Charlotte last year - Brockway, an ALEC legislator from Georgia posted a biased and misleading video on line for his Repug buddies - that was taken during a lull in the protesting.
There can be no lull in the protesting at Chicago.
We must have a presence all three days.
PLEASE join us for all three days.
Please be there to say - The USA is NOT OK with the extremist pro-corporate American Legislative Exchange Council.
