Location Details
Justin Herman Plaza, the Embarcadero, SF
Event Type Protest
Organizer/Author
According to SFWeekly (http://blogs.sfweekly.com/thesnitch/2012/04/tea_party_protest_nobama.php) and SFGate (http://blog.sfgate.com/nov05election/2012/04/11/major-tea-party-rally-planned-for-san-francisco-saturday/), the biggest Tea Party rally since the 2010 elections is happening at Justin Herman Plaza on Saturday, April 14, from 1pm to 3pm. And yet I can find no coordinated counter-protests announced either here, or by OccupySF or OccupyOakland or WCW or ANSWER or CODEPINK or MoveOn or SEIU or by any other social justice or progressive organizations. Why not? I don't want to be the lone counter-protester, so please join me at Justin Herman Plaza to counter the Tea Party at 1pm, or better yet contact progressive organizations like the ones mentioned above or others of your choice and get them to send out the word. I'm just one person; I can't do it alone. The more people who show up, especially in organized groups, the more we will be able to neutralize the reactionary Tea Party message.

Don't stand by and let the Tea Party re-emerge and take the spotlight away from our issues! Don't let them "occupy" our home turf unopposed. And if you know of any organized group planning to attend, please give links or info in the comments.
