Protest against the New York Times:

This coming Monday The New York State Young Republicans will co-sponsor an event in front of the New York Times Headquarters from 5:00 to 7:30 PM, to protest against their decision to print secrets about America’s terrorist tracking program.

The Times Headquarters is located at 229 W 43rd St (bet. 8th & 9th Aves).

If you bring a protest sign, do not affix it to a stick of any kind. Only handheld signs are permitted by law!

Also as many are aware Congress on June 30th voted to condemn papers like the Times for reporting the program. Here is how our Congressman from New York voted on the issue. If you’re upset about how your Congressman voted don’t sit still, make a call and let them know you disagree.
