HEADS UP CPAC 2012 - Occupiers and Unions to Protest There
Keep your powder dry at CPAC this week and be ready. From past experience, when the anarchists know there will be push back, they change their plans.
In Oakland this past week the cowardly occupiers occupied places where they knew the police were not going to be around. Of course the police finally caught up to them and arrested 400.
If anyone has a good contact with the Metro police, you might give them a heads up. And let the Marriott and Omni hotels know that they may have unwanted people floating around making trouble. It is bad enough the paulbots are around, now we have these idiots.
From Twitter and with links:
You'd be wise to keep a cool head if you're going to CPAC. From the D.C. AFL-CIO:
Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)With workshops like Return of Big Labor: What Can We Learn from Wisconsin & Ohio, and Taking back Wall Street: The Tea Party vs. Occupy Wall Street, the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) descends on the nations capital February 9-11 and local labor activists are planning a DC lesson to ensure that the voice of the 99% are heard at this elite conservative gathering. Actions are currently being planned for noontime and after work on Friday, February 10. Featured speakers at CPAC include Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, and presidential candidates Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum.
You may remember what the union-aided Occupiers managed to do at the D.C. conference center in November. When conservatives staged a conference there, they banged on the windows, physically harmed at least one old woman, blocked local traffic, and used children as human shields. Much of the action was caught on tape.
The AFL-CIO is planning a disruption of some sort at noon Friday and another at 5 p.m.
Here are some details about the event that AFL-CIO plans for noon: Where Marriott Wardman Park Hotel (2600 Woodley Rd at Connecticut Ave NW) When Feb 10 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm What do Wisconsin Governor SCOTT WALKER, presidential candidates MITT ROMNEY, NEWT GINGRICH, RICK SANTORUM and House Budget Committee Chair PAUL RYAN have in common?
They all represent the greed of the wealthy 1% and theyll all be at the 2012 Conservative Political Action Conference.
WEVE HEARD ENOUGH FROM THE 1%! Join the rally featuring tents, an inflatable fat cat, puppets, candidate Walmart, and more to LET THE VOICES OF THE 99% BE HEARD!
Friday, February 10, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel (2600 Woodley Rd at Connecticut Ave NW), by the Woodley Park Metro Station
Coordinated by the Metro Washington Council AFL-CIO
Yep, ruin their 15 seconds. The DC Chapter has done a good job of this in the past.
Thanks for the info. CSpan showed this. I guess they have a lot of air to fill. Shame they don’t cover Tea Party events.
I and others have made calls to CPAC, Metro police, and hotels but only got recordings. Messages were left but no call backs. Not much to do now but see what happens.
I saw Mittens get “sparkle bombed” the other day. If they can get that close to him, and he apparently now has a Secret Service detail, they can get in. Just like terrorists, no stopping them, they have surprise on their side.
Someone tried that last night on him, and the Secret Service was on the guy like white on rice. I don’t know why all these guys don’t have it. I might not care for Romney or his positions, but the thought that there are people out there willing to do this crap on a Pres candidate is pretty frightening.
I’m here with a friend. We’re “official bloggers” and will be around for 3 days.
We need a FReeper get together, at least to say we did it. Or, we could FReep the Occupiers.
They’ve lost their principles.
Want to make sure you see this thread. It would be nice if you could send the message to the RNC.
Are they trying to destroy the RNC?
I sent an email to CPAC with the info. I plan to call the RNC again tomorrow and try to get someone “in charge”. I am on a mission to make sure that they KNOW what is being said by their employees.
Anyone going to have a stream of Newt’s speech at CPAC tomorrow?
One was posted today. Wait till the live thread starts.
CSPAN just showed a full schedule of coverage starting at 10:30 AM tomorrow.
Thanks. will pass the message on to GVnana
COverage starts at 10:30 on CSpan
That would be 7:30 AM here on the left coast...
CPAC lost the meaning of true conservatism...
There is still the great percentage being truly conservative. Lord knows what that percentage would be.
Every year some independent faction creeps their head up.
