Sick of the meta bullshit?  Sick of the doom, gloom and woe-is-me?  Want real action?  Here is a your chance.  Organize and march on Washington!


Date: Saturday, October 2, 2010

Time: Noon until 4pm

Location: The event takes place on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial located on the National Mall in Washington DC.

Description: This event is open to the public. This event is also a family friendly event. We will march rain or shine. Bring signs that promote the values of One Nation Working Together. There will be portable bathrooms and water on site.


Is Daily Kos, Huffington Post, MyDD or any other member of the liberal/progressive blogosphere or Netroots Nation onboard for NN10.2?

War on Error has an impressive diary listing bus locations for you.

All you need to do is show up.

Organizations that have allied together for this march.  This will be a historic march but why do I not see Netroots Nation representation?

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
