RAVE Act Protests Across the Country, May 31, 2003
    #1588520 - 05/29/03 01:11 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Have you ever wanted to dance for a good cause? Here's your chance.
On Saturday, May 31, protest gatherings will be held in cities across
the country to call for repeal of the RAVE Act. Click here to find a
protest near you. http://actioncenter.drugpolicy.org/ctt.asp?u=693&l=1849

A lot of you out there know what it takes to throw a good party -
promotion, DJs or a band, a sound system, and a big crowd. The same can be
said for a good protest. Help us make these events a success by
showing up. If you can't be at one of the protests on May 31, please donate
today so that we can make sure these events make the biggest impact
possible on Congress and the White House.

And to make sure our message is heard loud and clear in Washington, DC,
do us a favor and call your Representatives and Senators to let them
know about the protest. To find out who your federal legislators are,
use our legislative directory
http://actioncenter.drugpolicy.org/ctt.asp?u=693&l=1850. Tell your
Members of Congress that you support the protests against the RAVE Act
occurring around the country on May 31st. Tell them the RAVE Act was passed
without debate and without a full vote of Congress, that it violates
fundamental civil liberties and that you want it repealed or amended to
protect innocent business owners, public health, and free speech.

Because of you, the campaign to repeal the RAVE Act is growing.
Together we've raised nearly $16,000 on-line for our efforts. However, that
will only go so far in what's sure to be a long fight. If you haven't
already given to this effort, please do so now.

Like we said in our last e-mail about the RAVE Act: If you're willing
to shell out $10 to see your favorite band or listen to your favorite
DJ, will you give $10 to protect the scene from this outrageous law? If
you can give more, please do so. Please give at:
http://actioncenter.drugpolicy.org/ctt.asp?u=693&l=1851

The Drug Policy Alliance is reaching hundreds of thousands of people
with our campaign. Since the RAVE Act was signed into law in April,
we've:

-- Placed a print ad in an industry magazine that reaches 50,000
people;

-- Generated commentaries and news stories in Rolling Stone, Billboard
Magazine, Circuit Noize, the Washington Blade, Newsweek,
http://actioncenter.drugpolicy.org/ctt.asp?u=693&l=1853 the Miami
Herald, and newspapers across the country through the Associated Press; and

-- Urged voters to call their Members of Congress on dozens of radio
shows from California to New York.

We are working in coalition to repeal the law and we expect to get a
bill introduced soon. We are working to make the RAVE Act an issue in
the next election and we are acting as a watchdog to ensure that the DEA
and others will not trample on the rights of electronic dance fans.
Drug Policy Alliance is also working overtime to strip provisions from a
House bill known as the CLEAN-UP Act that will destroy live music if
passed.

Thanks for your hard work for this effort. Please attend the protests,
call your representatives, send a donation
http://actioncenter.drugpolicy.org/ctt.asp?u=693&l=1852 and keep
spreading the word.

We would like to give a very special thank you to the groups that have
made these protests possible, including the Northwest Late Night
Coalition, DANCEmusic, the Culture Defense Project, and ROAR!: The National
Dance and Music Rights Alliance.

Sincerely,


Bill Piper
Associate Director of National Affairs
Drug Policy Alliance

The rave act doesn't only target raves...infact I think it targets illegal raves least of all...

What ever happened to REAL protests? Why does everybody have protest parties now. Don't people realize that nobody cares what dancing robots think?
