An email from Move America Forward!!!! LISTEN UP.
The radical anti-military group, Code Pink, has been paying attention to our plans to organize a pro-troop demonstration in front of the Berkeley City Council Chambers on Tuesday, February 12th. (Located at 2134 Martin Luther King Jr. Way in Berkeley, CA - CLICK HERE FOR A MAP).
We learned of this posting from Code Pink and their allies today:
http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2008/02/07/18477667.phpEXCERPT: "Our efforts to close the Berkeley Marine Recruiting Station have galvanized national attention. The pro-war forces, represented by the group Move America Forward, are mobilizing to descend on Berkeley on Tuesday, February 12, starting at 5am! They plan to spend the day attempting to intimidate our peace-loving City and City Council."
Similarly, we were tipped off to an email sent out by one of the Berkeley City Council members, Linda Maio, who is trying to stack the Berkeley City Council meeting with lots of anti-military activists to provide them cover.
Here's what that email said:"…we have received info that the marines and their supporters are gearing up to come to the Feb 12th council meeting to shame us and attack us, in large numbers. Now that Laurie and Betty have put on a recommendation to rescind what we did (on the agenda of Feb 12th) we expect they will jam the microphone with their diatribes. Press will be there in full force. The regular meeting starts at 7 p.m. People need to get there early enough to get in and grab a seat. Pls help pass on the word. The fire dept will not allow more people in than room can hold. Therefore, I am urging people to come early and occupy a seat, and be prepared to speak too and represent our city's values next Tuesday."
Please -- help us ensure that the voice of patriots - and not anti-military bigots - is heard loud and clear in Berkeley on Tuesday, February 12th. Move America Forward will begin our day-long pro-troop vigil and anti-Berkeley City Council protest beginning at 5:00 AM in front of the Berkeley City Council Chambers at 2134 Martin Luther King, Jr. Way in Berkeley, CA.
If you can make it for at least some part of the day we welcome you - bring your American flag!
The "main event" begins at 5:00 PM when we are asking for a full show of force… we will rally from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM and then proceed to enter the City Council Chambers at 7:00 PM. We need as many people there as humanly possible.
Please do what you can to make it to this important event. Bring friends. Bring family members. Bring co-workers. Bring your American flags!
Complete details - including information on travel - is available at our website: http://www.MoveAmericaForward.org
*HELP SPREAD THE WORD - PASS THIS ON TO OTHERS -- WE NEED HUNDREDS OF PATRIOTS OUT THAT DAY!
(Note from Susan- Time to step up Patriots and be heard. Lets tell those Code Pinkos and the Berkeley City Council that their actions against our Marines is unacceptable and will NOT BE TOLERATED.)
You remember Linda Maio, she was the moron that tried to claim that the city council didn't read the 3 paragraph, very short resolution they passed calling our Marines "uninvited and unwelcome intruders".
[Update] Have you seen Senator Jim DeMints video about the outrageous Berkeley City Council resolution? If not, head over to TownHall and look and if you haven't signed Move America Forward's petition yet..... what are you waiting for...SIGN NOW.
