MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT! Sept 11th - The National March Against Terror! FR SPONSORED!
National March Against Terror ^ | 7-8-04 | Bob J

Posted on 07/08/2004 3:41:36 PM PDT by Bob J

FREEPERS!

In the spirit of our successful "Rally for America" in '03 and as FReepers and patriotic Americans, it's time to once again to hit the streets as a national force to stand up for what is right and take action against the juggernaut of lies, evasions and mistruths perpetrated by the liberal media who want to see the War on Terror fail!

September 11, 2004
has been designated by the Free Republic Network and associated FR Chapters as the date for the
National March Against Terror

To date, national sponsors for this event include;

What is the NMAT?
The National March Against Terror event is a nationwide demonstration of the American people's commitment to win the war on terrorism, support for our troops, and pay homage to the victims of terror. All participants are volunteering their time, energy, and resources to make this event possible.

Who is running this event?
The National March Against Terror event is being run by the NMAT Lead Sponsors. These sponsors are volunteering their time, energy, and resources to help structure the March as a national event. As of this writing, the FIT-AIM-ACT Campaign is offering its advisory services through its coalition task force committees, SAFE Foundation is organizing NMAT's fundraising and promotional activities through its 'National March Against Terror' program, Free Republic Network is organizing and coordinating the literal-side of the March, i.e., marches, rallies, vigils, and other public events through its national online network, and GiveSupport International is maintaining the NMAT web site and all related trade names, slogans, logos, service marks, and copyrights.

Is NMAT a non partisan event?
Yes. The National March Against Terror event involves Americans of every political background. It is not sponsored or endorsed by any one group or party. Every American can participate in his or her own way. Each year, the March may or may not be held on September 11th, but it will support the National Day of Vigilance and the war on terrorism every year until the war is won.

Why have a National Day of Vigilance?
The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 changed America forever, and we the American people must never forget our responsibility of protecting our homeland. By having a national day of rededication to year round vigilance against terrorism, we hope that America will never again be caught off guard by those who seek our destruction. It is our belief that such vigilance will ultimately save lives at home and abroad.

Do you hope to make NDOV a National Holiday?
If the Congress and/or the President decide to designate September 11th or some other day as 'National Day of Vigilance', we would be happy to see that happen. However, it would be our desire that NDOV not be made into another holiday for family barbecues and picnics. Instead, it should be a national day for every American to reinforce their personal vigilance against terrorism. Until the war on terror is won, our hope is that the National Day of Vigilance be used to help America stay on a war-footing in support of our troops and to encourage the highest level of vigilance at home.

This event is just now being announced and many other Major sponsors and co-sponsors will be coming on board soon! What can you do to help make this event as or more successful than our "Rally for America"?

Organize or attend a rally in your city or neighborhood!
Get your friends, relatives and neighbors to take part!
Contact your local/state politicians and local active duty/veterans and ask them to support, attend or speak at a local NMAT event!
Contact your local television and radio stations and let them know about the NMAT!

Soon, we will have a section of the NMAT website that will allow you to post your rally info/location (much the same as we had for the RFA).

If you were thinking of some other kind of volunteering, let me know.

Mmmm. Give each one of the marchers rifles, send them off to Iraq, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, etc, and the terrorists will stand up and take notice (either that or take notice and hide behind some rocks).

Can you publish a sample press release ..?? Or would it be better to get it by FReepmail or email ..??

I just want to make sure my local media takes this event seriously.

I'm very excited about this.

I'm interested in volunteering to be on the next trip to the moon. Can you hook me up with that? JK.

Seriously, I look forward to the event. You have an Atlanta volunteer right here when it's needed. I ain't much of a people organizer, but I'm sure one helluva Web Designer. My time for THAT is what I can do best. Please FReep mail me if you would like some help with the Site. I'll even donate the server space.

Press releases will be available within a week or so. We expect to spend the next 45 days planning and organizing with the big PR push coming the last two weeks prior to the event.

Question for you.

Are you planning on having many small events per state or one or two large events per state.

I used to be a volunteer coordinator and have experience with this so if you need my assistance, please let me know.

If you are interested, VetsCoR will discuss participation at this week's BOD meeting. If the event goes large, maybe a slide show or video should be developed for general distribution?

One thing we (well, some of us) learned long ago, getting conservatives out to large events more than an hour or two drive away is difficult. Since '00 we have concentrated on having many smaller events throughout the country rather than having just a few large ones.

An example would be the "Rally for America" in '03. There were several hundred events and we figured the total number of bodies at them to be in the 200k-300k range. No way we could get than many of us to one or two locations.

I would expect the larger to cities to have larger events with more people. Are you in Taxachussetts? Are you interested in helping out on a local or national level?

I just heard from a local vet that wants to get something going - I pointed him over to here to check things out. He and I worked together on the Support the Troops rallies.

I can also contact my friend Carolyn @ Operation Gratitude to see if she and her supporters are interested. She is based in Encino. I and the wife spent Memorial Day with 100's of fine folks preparing over 10,000 Operation Gratitude Care packages that went out that weekend alone. She got permission to use the National Guard armory and has many military contacts.

Operation Gratitude

BTW, she will be having another big shipment push going out for Veterans' Day this year.

Quote: "Are you in Taxachussetts? "

Yes I am in Taxachusetts. I am forever grateful to have found Free Republic because now I know I am not the only politically active conservative in this liberal state. :o)

Wherever you need help I would be happy to volunteer. If you let me know what the responsibilities are at each level I can give you a definitive answer.

BTW: I also have PR experience so if you are having a task force for this I would be happy to volunteer for this as well. I am a little rusty because I have not been in that field for 5 years, but would love to polish them up for a cause as worthy as this one.

Just need a well written and motivating media release. However, don't count too much on the national level of Veteran/Military organizations. Most are fraternal and don't get involved in events unrelated to their charity purposes. But regional and local posts/chapters may be responsive.

Be careful how you want to promote this...as of now, it appears to be two different events and can be confusing. Either NMAT or NDOV should take the lead with the other being a back up solution for those who can't participate in the first...if that made sense.

Agreed. The NDOV is an ongoing perennial event while this year we are observing it with the NMAT. Check with Ted and Paul on this, technically it's their baby.

Bob, please don't ever use the letters "VC" when referring to VetsCoR...bad connotation for Viet Nam era Vets. VCR is fine for short.
