The jooish Cartel runs the banking, insurance, stock markets, media and know the government. Before you call me nasty names please prove me wrong. BOYCOTT JEWISH GOODS AND SERVICES.

Wow they train you to protest civilly. I hope you are thinking about the environmental damage that you may cause by running your air conditioners and car engines to stay cool. Just pick up after yourselves and leave the site better than you found it. Sounds like a waste of time and resources to me.

It cant be a waste of time if you have nothing else to do but criticize the zeal and integrity of thousands of Americans trying to spread awareness and make a difference. We will be clean and respectful, or at least my group will be!

that was either really dumb or somebody's getting revenge on an ex by posting their info on here

[-] 1 points by jart (1263) from New York, NY 2 years ago

A lot of people have been posting their names and contact info. It's kind of hard to organize otherwise.

I will bring a small air conditioning unit to keep cool. I will need the generator.

[-] 0 points by anonymous () 2 years ago

Have you planned for several recharging stations - small generators or vehicles equipped with ac / dc power inverters so that supporters can easily recharge their electronic devices?

[-] 0 points by anonymous () 2 years ago

A generator is also useful to power a sound system, which will be needed or at least very useful for assemblies larger than 100 people.

also great for the carbon footprint
