SUPPORT OUR TROOPS - Patriots Rally for America IV - Saturday, March 1, 2003, Washington, D.C.
DC Chapter of Free Republic ^ | February 18, 2003 | Angelwood and Kristinn

Posted on 02/18/2003 8:35:34 PM PST by Angelwood

This is important. Drop what you’re doing. Pack the car, get on a plane, a train, a bus or start walking. Our troops need your support right now! They’re laying it on the line for us overseas and all they are seeing in the media is hundreds of thousands of anti-war/anti-American demonstrators marching in our streets.

As evidenced by this article Anti-war Protests Anger U.S. Troops Inside Kuwait those demonstrations are starting to affect morale. You can do something about that, but it will take time, effort and sacrifice -- a modest sacrifice compared to our men and women in uniform waiting for the the word to take out Saddam and his tyrannical terrorist regime.

The D.C. Chapter of Free Republic urges all FReepers and lurkers in good standing, as well as their friends and families, veterans and their friends and families and all others who want to stand up for America and support our troops to join us in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, March 1, 2003 for the Patriots Rally for America IV from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m at the outdoor Sylvan Theater on the grounds of the Washington Monument.

As the United States prepares to take the next step in the war on terrorism with probable action in Iraq, it is imperative that we get out and show support for our troops, our Commander-in-Chief and all that’s good about America.

Our troops are there to give their lives if necessary in order to prevent another 9-11 from happening to us. Now more than ever, they need to see your support back home. Please don’t let them down.

We are asking you to bring large American and Gadsden flags. Also, signs bearing messages supporting America, our troops, our Commander-in-Chief and the war on terrorism.

That same day, anti-American leftists will be holding an "anti-war" rally and march in D.C. The "anti-war" rally, organized by IAC-A.N.S.W.E.R. , a front group for the communist World Workers Party, will be held on the Mall near the Capitol Building between 3rd Street and 7th Street, N.W. The organizers have permitted other sites as staging areas for many in their group to assemble and then march to the main event. Some of these staging areas include: Constitution Gardens by the Vietnam War Memorial, the Northeast quadrant of the Washington Monument, and Freedom Plaza at 14th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W.

Another group has plans to assemble in the DuPont Circle area and march to Constitution Avenue, N.W. between 17th and 23rd Streets.

We do not expect any trouble from those groups. Law enforcement officers will be everywhere to keep the peace and ensure that everyone’s rights are respected.

As always, the D.C. Chapter's rules for demonstrating will be in effect. Briefly, they are: No violence, no racism, no profanity, no threats, no provocations, obey the law and treat all law enforcement officers with respect.

When: Saturday, March 1, 2003 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., rain or shine.

Where: The Sylvan Theater, located on the south side of the Washington Monument grounds at Independence Avenue and 15th Street, S.W.

Thank you Jim for making Free Republic the best place to go for information and activism on the web.

Thank you, Registered. The D.C. Chapter couldn't hold a rally without your efforts and your fantastic logos. We really appreciate all that you do for us.

We're way down here in TX, but will be traveling to San Antonio for the same rally. But I'll be praying we have hundreds of patriots attending all of them!

IF YOU'RE A FREEPER YOU ARE OBLIGED TO ATTEND THE CLOSEST RALLY POSSIBLE.

TELL OUR TROOPS AND OUR LEADERS WE SUPPORT THEM!!

Hey, fella... I borrowed part of your comment on the Takin' it to the Streets thread - to use in my tagline.

Our snow should be melted by March 1st... and the temps should be at least quadruple what they were last month! Positively tropical, I tell you.

See you in 10 days!

I hold my own rally every Thursday at the Coast Guard base.
I support them by helping them do some of their work.
I've been doing this since Oct 2001.

Any word yet if this might be seen on CSPAN? If not, we could/should start a massive email campaign to demand equal time for our rally. They slammed us on the last one. It'd be only fair.

The loonie left has a 40 year headstart on protesting, so we need your help in rasing the funds for the sound system and other basic components of a rally.

If there is anyone out there who is in the printing or advertising business who could make flyers, bumperstickers or other promotional materials to use at the rally, please FReep mail me.

If you're in a position to make a non-monetary contribution on something I haven't mentined, please FReep mail me too.

Time is short and your country needs you. Don't underestimate the value of your contribution.
