Demonstration at Newt Gingrich's Boston Event

When: Friday, November 18, 2011, 11:00 am
Where: Harvard University Institute of Politics • 79 John F. Kennedy Street

Demonstration at Newt Gingrich's Boston Event WARNING: NO RON PAUL PARAPHERNALIA ALLOWED! Whether we'd like to admit it or not, the mainstream media is telling us that Newt Gingrinch has surged to top-tier candidate status. We need to show up and inform his conservative supporters that he is a big-government Republican. I propose we wave anti-Net signs outside his Boston event this Friday, and then try to ask him difficult questions at his Q&A.
