We collected hundreds of tea bags, and we are deciding between sending them off to Washington D.C. or possibly dumping them at the Federal building on Jackson for Patty and Maria to see. If we choose the latter, then I would like to make that an event by itself.
We also collected so many more names for our network, so we are growing ladies and gents, we are growing.
The bad news: out of all of the local news stations, I know for sure that KOMO was there, but I have yet to see any sort of story or footage. There was another camera guy there with a big camera, but I don't know where he was from. However, everyone I have talked with has told me that they have not seen ANYTHING in any of the local news casts. If you have seen something, please leave a comment here, or if there is something online, leave a link in the comments. If it turns out that they TOTALLY IGNORED US, then I am going to be livid. We sent them official press releases and called them the morning of the protest at 8:30 am. They knew. They knew.
The numbers of the news stations are listed over to the right and I encourage EVERYONE to call them and demand to know why they ignored a press release, a phone call, and a national movement that drew tens of the thousands of people all across the nation, in only the fifth week of this administration. DO NOT let them dictate what is worthy of that oh so fickle and capricious title of "news."
Question: what was your favorite part about today's protest????
I'm exhausted. :)
