Monday, December 17, Noon, National Day of Protest

Quote:

WHEN: noon to 1.30 p.m. Monday, December 17

WHERE: Your Closest Constituency office of your Member of Parliament


WHAT: Theatrical demonstration (chains, leg irons, prison uniforms, signs,) with 10 - 20 people at ALL 308 Members of Parliament Constituency Offices across Canada. Its a day to educate each MP by giving out pamphlets to passers by and the MP and their assistants. Dressing in prison uniforms, hand-cuffed or leg-ironed, with a ball and chain, padlocks, or a variation of this with signs that might say "Prohibition Hurts People, Bill C-26 Hurts Canadians" and " HONK if you oppose jail for pot!"
WHY: The Conservatives have introduced amendments to the Controlled Drugs & substances Act that mandate minimum penalties for sellers of 3 kilograms of cannabis, all growers who grow in a rented property, all growers who have children in the garden house, any production of hashish and budder and oil for distribution, maximum penalties raised to 14 years, equal to manslaughter, for cannabis production! The penalties for marijuana have been getting more severe in the courts for the last year, and arrests across Canada are up considerably.

We are DEMONSTRATING at our elected REPRESENTATIVES to DEMAND MP's listen to science, facts, the Senate Report 2002, and to NOT pass the Bill-C-26, the Government Drug Amendments. INSTEAD WE MUST give each Member of Parliament compelling reasons why we should end Prohibition and solve all the problems of prohibition with a taxed and regulated form of distribution. We will propose counter-amendments that would, if legislated, solve the key concerns of the people and government regarding gun crime, gang activity, etc.

HOW: This is a day time protest, 90 minutes starting at noon. The idea is to present the CANNABIS USER as a good, decent citizen. PROHIBITION is the evil, PRISONS and INMATES are the RESULTS. So we must do a theatrical demonstration of individuals (possibly wearing hats of different professions, nurse, graduate, construction, etc.) dressed as prisoners, leg irons, hand cuffs, orange prison jump suits or the old Monopoly jail outfit of black and white stripes, holding a sign saying "POT PEOPLE DON'T DESERVE JAIL" " THE ANSWER IS TO END PROHIBITION " " QUEBEC IS NOT THE USA; No More Drug War, if you please" "LE QUEBEC n'EST pas L'USA ; Aucune Guerre de plus de Drogue, si vous s'il vous plaƮt" " Free Societies don't Punish Freedom, do they?"

Prison theatrics are accompanied by a sign. Others give out pamphlets to passersby. NO ONE IS SMOKING POT. this isn't DEFIANCE, this is a political demonstration. The media, if they show, must see one message and that is prohibition = punishment = jail. NO DISTRACTIONS, PLEASE! It's not a rebellious smokeout, it is political theatre organized to make an impact on your local media and your local MP.


The main Calgary protest will be at Prime Minister Stephen Joseph Harper constituency address in Calgary

Glenmore Landing
A203, 1600 - 90th Avenue S.W.
Calgary, Alberta

Stephen Harper Calgary constituency office will be in direct sight of the December 17 / 07 protest.

We will be at the corner of 16 street and 90 ave. S.W. no later then 11:45 AM.

So far we will have one person in a prisoner oufit, one will be in a RCMP outfit and one in a suit and tie.

There is lots of parking available at Glenmore Landing shopping center where the protest will be held.

We could really use a celebrity activist or politician to help draw media attention. Any help would be hugely appreciated folks.
I would pay the airfare (and hotel if necessary) for Senator Campbell or Nolin.

Any activists or politicians that can make it I will take care of all your needs while you are in Calgary! I even have sleeping quarters available if necessary.

Just as one example of the excellent support there is for this protest in Alberta alone.
A true Canadian hero! I just got this reply a short while ago.

Quote:

I would love to come to the protest and I will go, I believe that the variety of people we can manifest with further change and support the cause. I have 25 years in the military and I left with an honorable discharge, I was in both Bosnia, Croatia and Afghanistan front lines in which I received some of the highest medals for supporting our country, so if that could help influence or educate our aim here then I feel good about that.


Also if Hollowpoint (HP) is well enough he will be attending too!
HP was also in the military and he was involved in other very important careers (Fire Department and EMS) and activities too (part of coaching for a Olympic team).
