AUGUST 29 - NEW YORK NIGHTCLUB VETERANS FOR TRUTH
MARCH WITH US (PROTEST IS GLAMOROUS)
Well, it has begun - as streets close up, protests rev up as tomorrow's massive August 29 UNITED FOR PEACE AND JUSTICE march approaches. Here are the final details on our Nightlife Delegation - NEW YORK NIGHTCLUB VETERANS FOR TRUTH.
Please forward this to others who might be interested.
WHERE TO MEET
We will assemble at 11:45 AM at 14th Street and Fourth Avenue, North Side, right upstairs from the subway and in front of the Zeckendorf Towers Food Emporium. We will leave at noon sharp and make our way to the nearest feed-in point to the march, which is now 15th Street and 5th Avenue.
We will march up Seventh Avenue past Madison Square Garden, the site of the Republican National Convention. From there, we will turn east on 34th Street, march to Fifth Avenue, then march down Fifth Avenue to 23rd Street and then march down Broadway. The final destination for our march will be Union Square.
WHAT TO BRING/WEAR
We want to make a strong presence from nightclub folk known, and will have a large sign expressing who we are - NEW YORK NIGHTCLUB VETERANS FOR TRUTH. We invite you to represent your club, scene or performance persona - nightclub Tshirts, signs (no wooden sticks, please) and themed costumes are encouraged. Whatever your clublife orientation - make it colorful, make it clubby and KEEP THE SHOES COMFORTABLE.
Bring a bottle of water, and wear sunscreen or a hat - its gonna be scorching. Cellphones are handy if you lose the group, and if you're planning on any civil disobedience after the march, remember your ID. As a group we are walking the whole legal, permitted route with no other plans, so those with immigration issues ought to be okay. Please note that the city's ancient laws against wearing masks in public may be enforced that day, so masque at your own risk!
We are sorry to get these instructions to you so late, but the final parade route and feeder march details were just released to us yesterday. If there is any breaking news between now and the morning, please check THE MOTHERBOARDS (www.motherboardsnyc.com) top page for any updates before you leave the house - we wont be emailing again. Email firstname.lastname@example.org by 9 PM tonight with any questions, and we'll see you at 11:45 Sunday morning.
