Date Changed For Fire David Letterman Protest Rally Now Tues. June 16
We have changed the date of the FIRE DAVID LETTERMAN RALLY from
Monday, June 15 to Tuesday, June 16.
The time and place remains the same: 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm on the
sidewalks outside of the Ed Sullivan Theater, which is located at
1697 Broadway in New York City.
If you live within a 4 hour drive of New York City, please make
an effort to attend this event. You can RSVP on our Facebook Event,
Please bring your own signs (be creative but PG rated!) to the event.
Also, for the technologically oriented please bring:
1. Video cameras
2. Laptops equipped with Wi-Fi and Webcams
We are going to try and send out some live Video Skype of the
Tuesday event. If you are Video Skype capable, please
email your skype id to me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We want to see if we can your live feed of the event
to selected new media outlets.
You are one of more than 3,500 people who have signed the letter
we will be sending to CBS, telling them we won’t
be purchasing products sold by sponsors of David Letterman’s
Late Show until he is fired. Your help over the next
few days is critical to the success of this project.
Please take some time on Sunday to email all your friends and
invite those who live near New York City to attend
the Tuesday FIRE DAVID LETTERMAN RALLY. Also, please promote our
site http://www.firedavidletterman.com by tweets
on Twitter, phone calls to local talk radio hosts,
postings on your blogs, and comments on other websites and
In addition, Monday should be a great day to call the talk radio
programs to promote the Tuesday rally. Wonder who will be the
first one on this list to make it on Rush Limbaugh, Sean
Hannity, or Glenn Beck?
I will personally be promoting the Tuesday event on Tammy Bruce’s
radio program Monday at 12:30 pm EDT, and don’t forget that
our own project colleague John Ziegler will be talking about the rally and other
breaking issues on Monday during his 11 am to 1 pm PDT radio program on
1260 AM, KGIL in Los Angeles.
Details of the Tuesday rally, including names of speakers,
will be announced at a press conference to be held in
New York City at 1 pm EDT on Monday. Laureen Cummings and
Gwendolyn Lindsey-Jackson will be speaking at the press
conference. In addition, we currently anticipate that a representative
of a New York City based women’s rights organization will also be
speaking at the press conference.
We have a great team to field press inquiries.
Gwendolyn Lindsey-Jackson, attorney, John Ziegler, radio talk show
host and producer of the documentary Media Malpractice, and
New York State Assemblyman Brian Kolb have all agreed
to be the “point people” to field press inquiries, effective immediately.
You can find their contact e-mails at our website,
Gwendolyn Lindsey-Jackson, Laureen Cummings, and Anna Barone will serve
as our on-site leadership team during the rally itself on Tuesday.
Thanks for all your help ! If you have any ideas or suggestions,
please feel free to send me an email with your thoughts.
