Friday, July 4, 2008
We're Celebrating all day on July 4th! Making our voices heard!
11:00 pm -1:00 pm ~ "BRING THE TROOPS" HOME RALLY
Intersection of East Colonial Drive & Bumby Ave by Walgreens, 32803.
A Call for Peace ~ To Make This Our Last July 4th in Iraq
We will honor the original principles of our founding fathers by again engaging our freedom of speech to tell our government to
BRING OUR TROOPS HOME NOW!
In staging this rally at such a visible intersection we also provide passersbys the opportunity to express their support for bringing home the troops. We support our service men and women by working to bring them home. We remind others that "Peace is Patriotic". Express your patriotism and commitment to the American values on which the US was founded and call for an end to this bloody, illegal and ineffective war.
4:00 pm -8:00 pm ~ "Lake Eola ~ Walk Around"
Walk with us around the park and help spread the peace message with our positive pink presence. Wear a pink crown and an "I Miss America" sash if you can or a pink slip if you dare! Meet at Panera's on NE corner, Eola and Robinston St. at 4:00 pm. Leaving at 4:30pm sharp. If folks want to continue, we will meet back near Paneras to leave again at 5:30pm and 6:30pm.
