11 South Union Street
Montgomery, AL

Angry citizens and voters who wish to take the mic

Others to be announced

Government isn't working for any of us regardless of what our political stripes are. This rally seeks to unite the people against the government. Please leave your partisan ideologies at the door. It's a BIG TENT event and everyone is welcome...but not to bash one side or the other.

During the rally those Representatives who have agreed to speak will be speaking about good bills they had die this session. After they speak the audience will vote their legislation up or down. I have invited representatives from various organizations to speak as well. If they agree they will speak on bills they promoted this session and then the audience will vote them or down. This is to show the Alabama Senate how things are supposed to work...since they obviously don't have a clue.

If you are speaking or attending and you want your bills to pass then you need to turn out some people.

Now, I'm bringing my pitchfork. It is a stage prop. I promise not to poke anyone with it. I will not attempt to enter the State House with it. The pitchfork represents a peasants uprising. Descending on the State House with pitchforks is very appealing to me right now. The message it sends couldn't be clearer. Others are not required to bring a pitchfork. But please do if you feel so inclined.

Also, bring signs that display your message loud and proud. I am partial to "No Work No Pay"

It will be hot...dress appropriately. Also bring your own drinks as there will not be any vendors at this event. Obviously no alcohol is allowed.

More info as it becomes available. Please email me at and let me know if you are attending.
