COAST has endorsed the inaugural event of the Cincinnati Tea Party, formed to protest and oppose the stimulus bill and foreclosure bailout in Washington. The rally is on Cincinnati’s Fountain Square this Sunday, March 15, 2009 from 3-5 PM.
So many of us have watched in horror as the new administration and Congress have lived up to the worst nightmares of voters in their first two months in office. Well, these energetic volunteers from this new organization, including Mike Wilson, have given us an outlet for those frustrations and voice to the tens of thousands (hundreds of thousands?) of area residents appalled at the new direction of our nation.
You can read here about the Tea Party movement in other U.S. cities: St. Louis, MO., Chicago, IL, Atlanta, GA, Green Bay, WI, Harrisburg, PA, Jacksonville, FL, Washington, DC, and Fayetteville, NC.
COAST thanks Mike Wilson and this Tea Party organizers and joins them in this important event. Here’s how you can help:
- Tell your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers about this great opportunity to speak out about the ruination underway in Washington.
- Send e-mails, and use Facebook and Twitter, to drive people to the event.
- Come to the event and bring people with you.
- Bring signs. COAST will be organizing a sign-making party this Thursday night at 6:30 PM at 1550 Magnolia Drive, Cincinnati, OH 45215.
Yeah, it’s pretty important.
