Two groups are meeting below Foley Square and will be marching to Foley Square:
Staten Island Tea Party will meet-up at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal in time for the 10AM departure.After we disembark we will march up Whitehall Street to Broadway,Broadway to Worth Street and the turn east into Foley Square. The distance is about 1.3 miles and should take us around 45 minutes or less.
The SITP started the idea of marching up Broadway to the event, and it has caught on. We now expect to be joined by other groups from the NY area (including other Tea Party groups and various NYPD and FDNY organization) at different points along the route. Also, received a phone call from Glenn Beck’s producer this morning asking for the details of the march and expect FoxNews coverage.
We will pass City Hall Park on Broadway. Rain is expected in the afternoon; an umbrella is probably going to be necessary.
Final quote: Louis L’Amour: “There’s no stopping a man who knows he’s in the right and keeps on coming…”
And Long Island CSA (Conservative Society For Action) This is their info:
If you would like to meet up with fellow CSA members, please meet a few bocks away from Foley Square at Columbus Park (corner Bayard and Baxter Street). We can then walk the few bocks to Foley Square. Meet time at 11:30 am. MAP

December 5 Rally
SATURDAY IN FOLEY SQUARE: STOP THE TERROR TRIAL IN NYC!
NEW YORKERS TO ATTORNEY GENERAL HOLDER: “WE WILL FIGHT YOU ALL THE WAY!”
MEDIA ADVISORY, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, Contact: Bill Zeiser at firstname.lastname@example.org (516) 448-5489, Website: www.911neverforget.us
THOUSANDS OF NEW YORKERS TO DESCEND ON FEDERAL COURTHOUSE AREA IN LOWER MANHATTAN ON SATURDAY TO PROTEST NYC TERROR TRIAL; AMERICANS WILL STAND IN SOLIDARITY WITH 9/11 FAMILIES, FIRST RESPONDERS, MILITARY, AND TERROR VICTIMS TO CALL FOR REVERSAL OF CONTROVERSIAL HOLDER DECISION
What: 911 Never Forget Rally
When: Saturday, December 5th, 2009 12:00 noon
Where: Foley Square
Who: The 9/11 Never Forget Coalition, a diverse group of 9/11 victims, family members, first responders, active and reserve members of the military, veterans, and concerned Americans, is holding a major rally on December 5th to protest the plan to bring the 9/11 terrorist conspirators to trial in New York City.
The Coalition has united to fight the decision of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to try the 9/11 co-conspirators in New York City’s federal court, a decision effectively giving war criminals the same rights as American citizens while endangering the safety of all New Yorkers. The rally will be the first in a series of nationwide initiatives to demand reversal of the Obama Administration’s decision, which recent polls suggest is opposed by 59% of American voters.
The Coalition is joined by many organizations, including the Uniformed Retired Firefighters Association (URFA), which has called for its members to be present en masse at the Saturday rally: “Our fallen brothers and sisters, along with all the occupants of the WTC and aboard the aircraft, on September 11, 2001, were murdered by ‘illegal terrorist combatants’ and do not have the right to a ‘civilian criminal trial’: they should be tried in a military tribunal.”
Two weeks ago, the 9/11 Never Forget Coalition sent a letter signed by 300 family members of 9/11 victims to the President, Attorney General and Defense Secretary Robert Gates asking them to reverse course. The letter has now been signed by over 120,000 Americans and is posted at 911familliesforamerica.org
Rally Speakers will include:
Debra Burlingame, co-founder of 9/11 Families for a Safe and Strong America. Burlingame is sister of Charles F. “Chic” Burlingame, III, pilot of American Airlines flight 77, which crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11.
Tim Brown, co-founder of theBravest.com. Mr. Brown is a retired, decorated 20-year FDNY firefighter, and a survivor of the 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, a first responder to the 1993 terrorist attack on the WTC and a veteran of the New York Urban Search & Rescue Task Force team that responded to the 1995 terrorist attack on the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City.
Ron and Robin Griffin, Gold Star parents. Mr. and Mrs. Griffin are parents of Army Specialist Kyle Andrew Griffin, Bronze Star recipient killed in Iraq in 2003.
Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy. Dr. Jasser is one of the moderate, anti-Islamist Muslims featured in the controversial PBS film, Islam v Islamists.
Andrew C. McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor. Mr. McCarthy led the prosecution against the jihad organization of Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, in which a dozen Islamic militants were convicted of conducting a war of urban terrorism against the United States that included the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and a plot to bomb New York City landmarks. Mr. McCarthy also made major contributions to the prosecutions of the bombers of the United States embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, and the Millennium plot attack Los Angeles International Airport. Following the September 11 attacks, Mr. McCarthy supervised the U.S. Attorney’s Anti-Terrorism Command Post in New York City, coordinating investigative and preventive efforts with numerous federal and state law enforcement and intelligence agencies.
David Beamer, the father of Todd Beamer, a passenger on United Flight 93, which was hijacked on 9/11. Todd conferred with the other passengers when it became clear the flight was being strategically routed toward a target of national impact, and it is believed that his rallying words “Are you ready? Let’s roll,” set in motion a successful counterattack from the passengers and crew.
Other speakers to be announced.
Debra Burlingame, founder of 911 Families for a Safe and Strong America, said “Our rally on Saturday, December 5 will tell Attorney General Eric Holder, President Barack Obama and their supporters in Congress: We will fight you all the way! ”
