TEA PARTY IN ROANOKE APRIL 15

TEA PARTY IN ROANOKE APRIL 15

Hundreds of southwestern Virginians are making plans to join a “March On Washington” protest September 12. Buses will pick up citizens in Roanoke, Franklin County and Lynchburg.

The Roanoke Tea Party has chartered several buses to make a one day trip on Saturday the 12. Other buses will leave on the 11th for an overnight stay.

According to Carla Bream, “200 similar bus trips have been scheduled all over the US bringing citizen activists to the march. Thousands more will be traveling on their own to make a statement to the politicians – in both parties!”

The organizers of the March On Washington say the protest “is a nonpartisan, grassroots, citizens event sponsored by dozens of small government, Libertarian, and conservative organizations.”

They will protest – out of control spending, the bailouts, the growth of big government, a soaring deficits and tax increases.  

The press release states that: “The Roanoke Tea Party is a non-partisan, citizen-led group of Roanoke Valley residents who have organized to protest against excessive government spending and taxation – in the spirit of the original Boston Tea Party.”
