RESOURCE LINK for March 17th: Counter ANSWER's march from the Wall to the Pentagon
Me | January 31, 2007 | Just A Nobody

Posted on 01/31/2007 2:42:16 PM PST by Just A Nobody

The purpose of this thread will be to pool our resources and ideas to counter the attempted take-over of our nation’s capital and foreign policy.

It is not the place to voice your disgust with those that feel it is necessary to present a street presence to counter the dregs of society seeking to undermine and destroy our country and our leadership. If that is your purpose, please move along.

On January 27, 2007, Thunder90 posted a thread to advise us of the next convergence on our nations capital by the anti-American hate-mongers. This gives us SEVEN WEEKS to organize and strategerize.

While reading Thuder90’s thread and the AAR from the DC Chapter’s counter demonstration last Saturday, January 27th, you will find inquiries in regard to transportation, hotels, metro lines and the like. There were also a number of Freepmails discussing these issues.

For those interested in making our presence known in Washington, DC on March 17, 2007 please feel free to offer what you can.

· If you are driving and have room for others, let us know the general vicinity you will begin the trip. I have an offer now of someone willing to pay for half the gas to share a ride.

· We already have offers of rooms/beds for those that need a place to stay. We can always use more!

· Perhaps you can rally enough interest in your area that renting a van or chartering a bus would be worthwhile. Let us know and we will see if that can be arranged.

· Those that live in the greater DC area or will have a vehicle at your disposal may be able to help shuttle folks from hotels or metro stations.

· We may need wheel chairs and those to push them.

· Those that have blogs, talk shows, columns or access to others that do – please share!

Any specifics should be discussed via FReepmail!

(D.C. Chapter Report on 1/27/07)


There are no formal plans at this time. Why plan a big rally/counterdemonstration if no one plans to attend?

Rest assured the DC Chapter faithful, with assistance from local citizens and troops, will be in DC on March 17th between 11:00 AM and however long it takes to ensure our presence is known.

The question is – WILL YOU BE THERE?

Word about the protest is getting out!

Excerpts from ...

Veteran-American Voices - The pendulum swings
But what can we, you and I, do about it?
Folks it’s time to put up or shut up!
If we do not counter with a physical presence at their rallies, contact our congresscritters, and, in general, put faces and bodies behind the words, we may as well quit.
Get off the sidelines and get in the game… we have thousands of cheerleaders, but few players.

Counter Protest March 17th, 2007 At the Wall
We are not going to allow this to happen if we have to stand 20 deep around the WALL.
This letter will be going all over the Internet...to all the major Veteran groups...please spread this far and wide.

Justa .. I have marked my calendar, and can offer rides (small car) to hotels/airports/metro, etc., assuming the old buggy holds up.

Reply Mail from the National Park Service


Dear Sir:

I forwarded your E-mail attachment to the National Park Service employee and U.S. Park Police Sergeant who will be meeting with applicants for a public gathering permit for a large march/demonstration on 17 MAR 07. At this time, it is accurate to state that the National Park Service has issued no permit for any event starting at the Wall of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, on that date. As I mentioned on the telephone, there are special regulations, found at Title 36, United States Code of Federal Regulations, Section 7.97, which protect core Vietnam Veterans Memorial areas and resources from such activities.

As my Supervisor directed, I have requested the National Park Service employee responsible for reviewing any public gathering permit application, as described above, to respond to the concerns you expressed on the telephone this morning,via E-mail. Thank you for your time.

Robert M. Healy, Jr.

Park Ranger, National Mall and Memorial Parks



In other words the website is lying they have not yet gotten a permit, now is the time to fight with the pen we must get this information out asap....people need to clog their Congressmen and Senators and the National Park Service with E-mails and phone calls! They can't be allowed to be anywhere near any Memorial! Thats what the streets are for the gutter and the garbage. Please forward this far and wide! Also this doesn't mean we shouldn't get as many Vietnam Veterans as possible to DC I remember another time long ago when WE needed America to support us and they didn't....we need to support our troops and their mission!

Excellent! It would be great to see you again.

Can you post this on your state board? IIRC, there are others from your state that have expressed interest.

I remember another time long ago when WE needed America to support us and they didn't....we need to support our troops and their mission!

The day after the election I walked into the school where I teach. The first person I saw came up to me close to tears. Her son is an intelligence officer stationed in Iraq.

Her comment to me was, "They are going to do to my son what they did to my husband in Viet Nam."

I will be there.

Justa, I'm beginning to get vibes from the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapters about potential support for the counter rally:

"This "heads up" courtesy of Tom Mutha ( President, Liberty Bell Chapter 266, Vietnam Veterans Of America ). Looks like I'll forego the St. Patrick's Day festivities here in Philly this year for a trip to the Wall !!! How dare these pieces of shit use our memorial as a rally point !!!!!"

Alan F. Maberry
Past President,
Liberty Bell Chapter 266
Vietnam Veterans Of America

"I KNOW WHERE I WILL BE ON ST. PATRICKS DAY...HOPE TO SEE SOME OF YOU BESIDE ME, AND A FEW THOUSAND OTHER VETERANS AND SUPPORTORS. PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO YOUR MAILING LIST, IF YOU CARE. SEMPER FIDELIS," TOM MUTHA 

Please contact your local chapter of the VVA. I see the http://vva.org web site is not yet reorganized to link all the chapters
