From Eric Odom: The New 50 State DontGo Movement Network

The New 50 State DontGo Movement Network

To members of #dontgo Movement

Today at 5:31pm

While some in the media are trying to belittle the Tea Party events that happened today, they seemed to have missed the part where we only spent a week in planning, and only 3 days ago many of us were wondering if anyone would even show up!

But much to our pleasure and surprise, the Tea Party Rallies were a HUGE success! In fact, we here in Chicago had around 400, reports suggest Nashville had 500 or so, and some reports are suggesting that St Louis may have broke 1,000. In total, there were Tea Party protets in more than 40 cities across the country today.

As if this isn't good enough news... the fact that this is just the beginning of a new revolution makes it even better. Indeed, we're just getting started and there is much that needs to be done.

The DontGo Movement is excited to have played a role in the organizing efforts of the national Chicago Tea Party rallies, and we're ready to come out swinging. As many of you know, we're gearing up to launch an independent, grassroots minded news site in each of the 50 states at NewsPlatoon.com. We're also currently organizing state DontGo Movement Coalitions in all 50 states, and we're getting ready to launch a couple large scale eActivism efforts taylored to help continue the movement and help us maintain the level of online energy we currently see with the Tea Party events.

Our new network of 50 state coalitions goes live on Monday, but we decided to go ahead and send you an early invite. Please CLICK HERE to join the new network. Once logged in, make sure you join your state and get plugged in to your local network.
