Antiwar Events Go Viral

George Phillies, August 30, 2013

On Saturday, August 31st, rallies are scheduled across the United States against the War on Syria. I have compiled a partial list. The demonstration event has clearly gone viral. Events were being added to Facebook and other places faster than I could type.

Some of the people organizing these have happily said they have never done anything like this before, and have posted Facebook event pages omitting minor details like the city or state for their rally location. Also, for Facebook announcements there are some anomalies involving which time zone is being posted with the announcement, so check what time these are. Finally, *some of these events are not tomorrow*. I have done what I could, but the list is very long and some announcements were a tad bit obscure. The following list is not complete, but I got tired of typing.

The driving force is an internet message.

Here’s the plan of action to Oppose the illegal and unconstitutional war with Syria:

We are launching a global rally on Saturday August 31st in every city and town in the world.

Here’s how you get involved:

Go to the FB search bar and search for ‘No War With Syria Rally (your city)’ example: No War With Syria Rally San Diego

Join the event, invite ALL of your friends to join it as well, then get involved with the locals that are already in the event page to help them any way you can.

*If there is no event page made for your location yet, please make one.
Here’s how:

-Simply click on your event tab from your FB homepage

-Click create an event

-Name the event ‘No War With Syria Rally (your city)’ example: No War With Syria Rally San Diego

-make sure you set the privacy to public so other people can find it when they search for it

-Pick a central and relevant location and start time for your area(please make it on Saturday August 31st)

-Invite ALL of your friends and encourage everyone else to invite their friends as well and do whatever else you can to let people know about the rally

-Try to get some volunteers together to make banners to do some canvassing on friday the night before your rally. Contact the local overpass light brigade or set one up yourself. Make signs.

-Pass out flyers in the days leading up to your rally, if you can’t afford them, ask for some donations. Some local businesses may also be willing to help you out with printing

-Contact other activist groups in your area for help(occupy groups, anti-war groups, veterans for peace groups, code pink, civil liberty groups etc)

-contact local media and let them know about your rally. Focus on independent journalists in your area.

-Set up a hashtag for your march and use it on FB, Twitter, and Instagram

-The rest is up to your discretion to handle locally

The time to change the world and stop the war is now. Share this information with anyone and everyone you know, thousands of innocent lives depend on it

Please Comment, LIKE & SHARE!

Here are a few of the events across America, in order by state, with thanks in part to /www.facebook.com/NoWarWithSyriaRallies and http://interoccupy.net/blog/map-of-nowarwithsyria-protests/ and http://www.popularresistance.org/protests-against-syrian-war-developing-rapidly/ , not to mention DailyPaul and various Libertarian Party sites.

  2. On Saturday, August 31st, rallies are scheduled across the United States against the War on Syria. I have compiled a partial list. The demonstration event has clearly gone viral. Events were being added to Facebook and other places faster than I could type.

  3. Film, film, film. If cops don't like film, they need to be filmed.

  4. You know of any events being held in Cincinnati this weekend?

  5. Let me urge urge readers interested in local events, which are popping up like mushrooms, to search Facebook "No War with Syria Rallies" and the other links I note. There may very well be something closer to you.

    Let me further urge readers to take to heart the message I quote. Many of these events were not created by groups that were already around. They appeared because someone like you was willing to choose a time and place, create a facebook page, and perhaps spring for some thin foam board and enlarged printing (many word processors will do "tile" and give you large printouts) for a few signs.

  6. Great job George.
