Copied from IMV email sent on Sunday, August 12th:

Resist Trump & Tenney Protest: Monday, 4-7 pm

Please share this information with your friends.  Carpool with them.  Bring your kids.  Bring your parents.  Make sure you sign up as "attending" on the event page.   

If you arrive early, at 2:30 or 3:00 pm, and are willing to help, look for people with orange vests who can put you to work as marshals or clipboard carriers to sign people in.  

We will have the 40 foot TrumpTaxScam Chicken there as well as TrumpHead, and lots of great music and chants.  You really don't want to miss it!

Safety First

Please read the following basic information provided by Diane Berry, our head IMV marshal and member of the NYCLU:  The right to Assemble Peacefully:
































Please do not put your signs on sticks.  Signs about health care, economic inequality (including the TaxScam), and how Trump and Tenney are hurting refugees, immigrants, and CNY families are all recommended.

Where to Go  

Meet up location is 207 Genesee Street, in front of the State Office Building.  Trump-Tenney supporters are expected to line some corners on the other side of the street, from Genesee to Oriskany. We will not mix with them or stand near them, as safety is paramount for all.  We want to make the job of law enforcement and our own safety marshals as easy as possible.  

We have been told that Route 49 into Utica will be closed.  Do not come on that route from the North  If you are driving from southern locations (Rt. 12 Binghamton, Norwich) or from Route 5 (Oneida, Cazenovia), take 5E/12N/8N and get off either at the MVCC (Burrstone Road East), or the Oswego or Noyes exits on the right, and make your way to Genesee Street from there. No matter when you hit Genesee Street from that side of town, head left. 

There are still rumors about alternative locations for Trump's visit.  However, we will not go around town trying to find out where he and Tenney are hiding.  Our strength is in numbers and our non-violent people power--that's what we bring to downtown Utica tomorrow.  Our audience is the persuadable voting public, and the media will be waiting for us.

Where to Park

Please carpool if possible.  Some folks have suggested meet ups closer to Chesterfield's (site of Brindisi fundraiser afterwards), and carpooling from there.  When you drive in to downtown, try to come in from the south and east and avoid Oriskany Blvd W.   

Here are some Public Parking lots, and also note:
800 Park Avenue (Oneida County Building, spots may open up after 4:00pm)
300 Genesee, Utica Public Library, Parking is behind the building. 
259 Genesee Street, Public Parking lot next to the Stanley Theater
Other good places to look for parking are streets around:
310 Genesee Street, Munson Williams Proctor Institute (may also be parking spots in their lot)
201 Bleeker Street is the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees, and there may be street and small lot parking in that area as well. 

Do not hesitate to park on the streets in compliance with signs.  There is always a lot of side street parking in Utica. 

How you can amplify: #EpicNY22Protest
We encourage people to take photos and video of the protest.  Tweet your pics and messages at #EpicNY22Protest.

Put your pictures and videos on Facebook.  Live stream.  When you get home, write a Letter to the Editor of your hometown newspaper about what you heard and saw.  

Our audience is the persuadable public, so let's keep our actions and signs appropriate.  Signs about how Trump and Tenney hurt central New Yorkers and signs about our values are best. 

The eyes of local, regional, and national news media will be on Utica on Monday.  We already saw that when a Syracuse news station drove all the way to Clinton to interview Sarah Reeske and find out about the protest we were planning.  If you are asked why you are protesting, what will you say?  Be ready to give the 10 second sound bite that might make the news. 

Join the "After Party"  

After the protest on Monday, we will celebrate, and show our support for a candidate who doesn't charge $1000 to get in!  Attend the Anthony Brindisi Campaign fundraiser at Chesterfields starting at 6:00 pm.  It's going to be so much more fun that being in that hateful and corrupt room with Tenney and Trump!  

Thank You for an Amazing Resistance Weekend!
