As I’m sure you know, the Republican National Convention is taking place in Tampa starting August 27th. We are members of the Coalition to March on the RNC and encourage you to join us and stand with us in solidarity in a march against the 1% at the Republican National Convention.
The Coalition to March on the RNC unites to fight back against the political elite and the 1% agenda.
As of now, we are a Coalition uniting groups from around the country to say NO to this political system that only works for the 1% and therefore are marching at the Republican National Convention to let our voices be heard. Together we stand to march for good jobs, healthcare, affordable education, equality and peace. On top of this we stand against all parties of the 1% and have also endorsed the March on Wall St. South, who plan to protest the DNC in Charlotte, NC. For too long people have suffered, while the rich got richer. We say government money be used for human needs, not on wars overseas and corporate greed. Together, we are planning on having a 5000 strong march at the first day of the convention on Aug 27th. We have hundreds of national and local organizations such as Code Pink, Veterans for Peace, Get EQUAL, Dream defenders, United National Antiwar Coalition, Occupy Tampa, Occupy USF, Occupy Pensacola, Occupy Tallahassee etc… endorsing us and we would love for all Occupy Assemblies to come down to Tampa to join and/or endorse our coalition. Only through unity is there strength.
We will be encouraging people to sleep at Occupy Tampa’s Voice of Freedom park or at these parks that allow camping for a nominal fee.
We will be rallying at Perry Harvey Sr. Park, located at 1200 N. Orange Ave Tampa, FL, at 10 am on August 27th and will be marching from the park through the streets of Tampa to “Protest RNC Square” at around noon. The parade route is as follows: http://marchonthernc.com/marchroute
