THE FORECAST IS FOR RAIN. THE RALLY WILL TAKE PLACE RAIN OR SHINE!
GVCP’S TAX-DAY RALLY
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 19TH, 4:00 PM,
OUTSIDE REP. CHRIS COLLINS’ OFFICE, 128 MAIN ST, GENESEO.
WE WILL DEMAND THAT COLLINS RECOGNIZE THE FOLLY AND CRUELTY OF THE TERRIBLE BUDGET THAT PRES. TRUMP PROPOSES. WE ARE ALREADY SPENDING MORE THAN HALF OF OUR DISCRETIONARY BUDGET ON THE MILITARY, AND TRUMP WANTS TO ADD $54 BILLION MORE TO THAT ALREADY BLOATED MILITARY BUDGET!
We are peaceful and will not engage in civil disobedience or in violence. We’ll park on the street—not in the small plaza in front of Collins’ office. We will not block access to people who want to visit Collins’ office or any other business in the plaza.
However, we will exercise our Constitutional rights of peaceful assembly, free speech, and petitioning for redress of grievances. We will bring flyers to distribute to passersby. We’ll supply postcards to be mailed to Collins with our message. When GVCP was founded, in 1972, our motto was, “Human Race Not Arms Race.” Now, 45 years later, we will continue to push for government spending to help “People, not the Pentagon.” “Books not Bombs.” Please bring signs to convey this important message. WE NEED EVERY POSSIBLE PROGRESSIVE PERSON TO BE PRESENT TO HELP MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD. PLEASE JOIN US!
Arnie Matlin for GVCP
