STOP EMINENT DOMAIN ABUSE!!
RALLY JANUARY 21/22 WEARE, NH
THE FIRST BATTLE is fast approaching in our campaign to end eminent domain abuse by having those who advocate it experience it themselves. The Committee for the Protection of Natural Rights is hosting a rally in Weare, New Hampshire over the weekend of January 21st and 22nd. We will meet in central Weare on Saturday morning at the OLD WEARE TOWN HALL. After some invited keynote speakers, we will set out in all directions to ask Weare voters to express America's outrage over the Kelo vs. City of New London decision.
We need to send a strong message to all politicians—stop stealing our property or YOU will be on the receiving end of the eminent domain steamroller.
Come to Weare, NH. Make a vacation of it. New Hampshire offers great options for the whole family: skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and much more. You can fly into Boston's Logan International Airport (BOS) or Manchester New Hampshire's airport (MHT).
There are no hotels in Weare (they need one) so supporters are recommended to find one in Manchester or Concord. Be prepared for cold, snowy conditions both in how you pack and the vehicle you rent.
Remember, no matter how bad the weather conditions the hosts of the event are all hearty New Englanders that will show you the ropes.
E-mail us if you might like to attend. More details will be provided as they develop.
