I will be rendezvousing with the Alarm and Muster people in front of the CNN building at 1130 hours. There will be Threeper flags available there as well and all Threepers and Oathkeepers are invited to join me there.
From a member of Alarm and Muster comes this briefing:
It is a very grass-roots kind of thing from what I can tell with a handful of different orgs getting involved. "Official" start time is noon and the protest march will walk on the sidewalk from the CNN center to the Atlanta Journal and Constitution building. "Official" end time is 2 PM.
The North Georgia 9-12 group is taking the lead and will gather their members at 10:30 AM in a parking lot nearby. I spoke with the head of the N. GA 9-12 and let her know that I planned on being in front of the CNN center at 11:30 AM, and she said that her group would be gathering within sight of where I was, and it would be no problem linking up our groups before the official start time of noon.
Operation Can You Hear Us Now and N. GA 9-12 has put out a list of excerpts from city ordinances pertaining to signs, sticks, flags, etc:
Following is a list of things to remember (excerpts from ordinances) while demonstrating on City of Atlanta public sidewalks:
Signs, posters or plaques must be constructed of cloth, vinyl, paper or flexible cardboard no greater than 1/4 inch in thickness.
Sign supports must not be pointed at either end.
No metal or other hard material unless a flagpole with a flag.
No plastic unless supporting a sign or banner. Hollow plastic cannot exceed 3/4 inch thickness, 1/8 wall thickness, and may not be filled with any liquid.
No solicitation whatsoever: no for sale, contributions, or commercial advertising allowed.
Signs are not permitted within government or private buildings.
Firearms, explosives, clubs, missile, or any other weapons of any kind are prohibited.
Open flames are prohibited.
***Please don’t litter. ***
Failure to abide by these rules could result in fines, arrest, or both.
Also keep in mind that GA law prohibits carrying of firearms at political rallies as per the "public gathering" law. Hopefully the PG law will be removed this upcoming state legislative session with HB 615, but that's another story.
From 9-12'ers page about the upcoming event:
Other Groups Joining the Protest Include:
13th Colony Patriots
Alarm & Muster
First Coast Tea Party
Flip This House 2010
Rainy Day Patriots
Sons of Liberty
Southern Crescent Tea Party Patriots
Tea Party Nation
I would like to invite as many of our folks to join us as possible. This will be a difficult demonstration for the 9-12 to coordinate as they lack a permit and it will be sidewalks only. This opens the march up to harrassment and agents provocateur, so capable, well-disciplined folks to help coordinate will be useful.
If there is anyone from Birmingham who is going, please contact me by e-mail -- GeorgeMason1776@aol.com.
