Indy Volunteers: Can we get a new feature put up for Friday the 13th Bush Protest for next week? Info and ideas for people and groups planning next Friday's Bush protest. Two corp news sources have reported the time of Bush's speach as 12:15pm, but be ready for changes and possible secondary locations TBA due to the Laura Bush fundraiser that evening. If he's at the event at 12:15pm we need to be ready to greet him at 11:00am or earlier. |
I've found the only hotel not taking reservations on the 13th in downtown is the Benson at 309 Southwest Broadway. It's listed as SOLD OUT and I can't find any event listed to explain that fact. So, I'm thinking the event will be at the Benson.
This would also make sense because the GOP has done previous events at the Benson (IE: cheney in 2003)
"the event will be at 12:15 p.m., location not yet released."
"Tracey Schmitt, a White House spokeswoman, said the president intends to travel to Portland to attend the Oregon Small Business Summit on Friday, Aug. 13."
"Bush will speak at a small-business summit in Portland at 12:15 p.m, his campaign confirmed Friday. The location hasn't been disclosed yet, but the event will not be open to the general public."
"It's a Bush-Cheney campaign event, which will highlight the president's policies to help small businesses," said Tracey Schmitt, campaign spokeswoman for Oregon."
