The federal raid live blog continues here.
Statewide protests against the dramatic and callous raids on as many as a dozen medical marijuana providers, timed perfectly to “coincide” with a key Senate vote on repealing medical marijuana, commence tomorrow, Wednesday, March 16th, 2011.
In cities statewide, Americans for Safe Access and Montana NORML (among others) are calling for people to convene upon their local city halls at 5PM, in protest of these federal actions and in solidarity with the thousands of affected patients.
What: Vigils at Local City Halls
When: Tomorrow, Wednesday March 16th, 2011 starting at 5PM
Where: Your Local City Hall
IMPORTANT: Bring signs that say: “YOUR CITY wants Feds Out of MT” (for example , “Billings wants Feds out of Montana!”)
Some local events have Facebook pages:
If you plan to attend your local event, and to get information about joining a 2PM coordination conference call prior to the vigil, please send an email with your city’s name in the subject line to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, in Missoula, an “Out of the Shadows, into the Streets!” march is planned for Saturday the 19th in Missoula. Convene at Caras Park at noon. Bring your signs from Wednesday! Here is the Facebook event page.
