I am...going to see which one is closest. May even try the drive to DC.

Please spread the word...please have your friends post their lists as well! We need to educate the other posters here as well. take care, Dandiday

Unfortunately, the group for my state won't give any info until you join their page. I applied to join and my request is "pending". So, I don't know if I will get the info in time
I'm guessing you're close to DC since you live in Virginia?

Better come prepared for the worst since the people in Murrieta got hackled by counter protesters.

I know you're doing so much, Oldglory...and I appreciate all you've done here on CD! Please advise us what else to do...

I'm further from DC...a good 3-4 hour drive, but I'll try to make it up there. Yes, my join status is "pending" too...this is an early grass-roots effort. Sounds like they have to work out some bugs, and the next protest weekend may be more successful.

Just keep trying, keep writing, and keep making your voices heard!

Thanks, Dandi

Yes, constantly be in touch with your politicians on all levels. Form or join local political groups with similar ideals. Every little bit helps.

Default Locations for the protests against the illegal invasion!!!

here's the latest link I found. Scroll down, find your state, and PROTEST!!!!!! July 18 and 19!!!! This upcoming weekend!!!!

nationwideprotest

(for some reason, the site is not coming up as copied. It's under "makethemlisten.wix.com)


In DC, apparently the protest will be in front of the Mexican embassy.


Also, here's the Facebook page that is organizing it all:

I'm trying to join my state group, Dandi.

Yesterday it said my membership was "pending". Today, I checked and got "join this group". So...I signed up again. Hopefully, I will hear back soon. If there is something near where I live, I will go.

Somebody in another thread in this forum (and I can't find it now) brought up concerns that invasion cheerleaders will show up at these events.

I've faced them before---even had someone from LULAC start screaming at me and pointing his finger at me because I corrected him when he talked about "immigrants". I said to him "illegal immigrants". OMG! Did he get red in the face! He started with the whole "there is no such thing as an illegal person blah blah blah". Then he told me how he is a naturalized US citizen. I was about to ask him why he bothered to become a US citizen when there is no such thing as an illegal person but a well-intentioned man told the LULAC guy to not point his finger at me. Then a police officer approached both the LULAC guy and the other man and told them both to be quiet.

I was sure to thank the man who spoke up in my defense!

So...if any invasion cheerleaders/reconquistas show up, hey---I won't like it but if any want to talk to me, I'll be glad to give them an earful

Dandi,
Have you posted this over on Current Events?
Nor sure if CD will allow it - but will be seen by larger audience.
