Anti-Street Blocking Campaign to Hold Community Forum
OLYMPIA (April 24, 2002) - The Evergreen Coalition Against Street Blocking is holding a community forum on May Day street party tactics. The forum will be at the Old Madison Elementary on Saturday, April 27th at 6:00 p.m.
The community forum parallels an expansion of the Coalition's petition campaign citywide. "I've been surprised at the response across the entire Olympia community to our campaign," said organizer Sean Rogers. "So, we decided to take the campaign community wide."
Right now, the purpose of the petition campaign is to ask the May Day street party committee to coordinate the event with the city. "The entire Olympia community is effected by what happens on May 1," said Rogers. "They should have a chance to say what they think of May Day and street blocking."
