DANVILLE TAX DAY TEA PARTY!

Original post made by Rick on Apr 13, 2009


Neighborhood Invitation - FOR WEDNESDAY APRIL 15

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

On Wednesday, April 15, 2009 there will be a Tea Party at the intersection of Hartz Ave. and Diablo Rd. to protest the reckless and irresponsible spending that is going on in our state and Washington D.C. This Tea Party is in support of Tea Parties being held across the U.S. on tax day, April 15.

Everyone is welcome! This is not a liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican protest activity. There is enough blame to go around in D.C. We are truly concerned about the direction or country is going and the future burden we are placing on our children, and rather than feel helpless victims, we need to take action that can make our voices heard as they are supposed to be.

The schedule of events is as follows:

12:00- 2:30 pm Meet at the intersection (sidewalk)

4:00 - 6:00 pm Meet at the intersection (sidewalk)

Put it on your calendar. Please bring your sign. Use your imagination but be sensitive to other protester's feelings!

Please RSVP to npctax2000@aol.com or (925) 930-9002 indicating how many adults and children you plan to bring. Please just stop by to watch if you want. The more the better. Sign or no sign.

Thank you!

THANK YOU for posting this!! I had been hoping someone would.

Neighborhood Organizer Nick C. has put a lot of effort into this event. It would be great to see a large turnout!!

We are thrilled Danville will be having a tea party - we thought we were going to have to go to Pleasanton. E-mail this announcement to everyone you know - let's show Washington how out of touch they are - let's get this great country back on track!!!

There's an easy solution to the 2 parties dilemma.
12-2 Danville
2-4 Pleasanton
4-6 Danville
6-8 Pleasanton

I think we should save our tea and throw the politicians into the river as a revolt against the despicable spending in D.C. It's not their money that they are burning through - it's ours and there's nothing we can do about it except protest. Will they hear us? I think not. Anita Venezia - taxpayer.

Anita, I hear your frustration -- but these events appear to me to be a first baby step. There's no reason for this 'beginning' to be the end!

That's why I'm going!!

this is where we begin to flex our power. the people have gone unheeded for too long! let these tea parties be a warning to a government which thinks they can take our hard-earned cash and give it away to lazy, multigenerational welfare users, illegal immigrants, bailing out banks that don't produce anything and who purposefully caused this crash in the first place. we are not slaves! it sounds a little cheesy sometimes, but these are the right words - DON'T TREAD ON ME!

My video of our organizer, Nick C., at the DANVILLE, CA Tea Party...

We had about 100 people at the noon rally, and at least that many again in the evening! GREAT TURNOUT for a tiny town with absolutely zero advertising or advance notice!!! The vid is from early in the evening event.

Enjoy,

Dawn
