Lieutenant Commander Smash has a great post about mobilizing picnics to counter the March 18th and 19th protests of our military at San Diego (Camp Pendleton) and Fayetteville (Ft. Bragg).
Smash has the details. See if you can help out.
We're asking everyone in San Diego to celebrate Independence Day a little bit early this year. On March 19, from 1 to 4pm, come to the west end of Balboa Park for a Patriots' Picnic, in the grassy area along Sixth Avenue, just south of Laurel Street.
Wear red, white, and blue. Pack a picnic for your family and friends. Bring a football, soccer ball, or frisbee (leave the baseball bats at home). Laugh, play, and have fun. Balboa Park is open for everyone -- nobody can prohibit you from using it peacefully.
Oh, and if you feel the urge, you might want to bring along an American flag, or maybe a homemade sign expressing your support for our troops.
We're promising a safe, fun, and peaceful event. We'll be working with the San Diego Police to ensure that the opposing groups are safely separated, and we'll have some of our own security in place, as well.
Don't let the seditionists take over our park, again...
