First Weekend Of May 2003

Flip Off Fang

Or You're Next!

 

 

A full day event, rather then a stop in the day of driving. 

We have an amazing location in downtown Flint to be able to pull an awesome march off. 

Consider this: 

Meeting early (11 or noon) at the riverfront park (complete with stage and arena type seating.  Here we will have speakers (possibly guys from POFDLR,  GP, etc) and a quick set of music (similar to the bash). 

After the speakers are done we will march like 3 or 4 blocks to City Hall where the march was held last year.  At city hall we will have a couple of barrels of water for refreshment, along with some fresh fruits/veggies donated to or fundraised by the flint local 420(I like this term :).  With fruit and refreshments people will be able to stay longer without getting dehydrated or hungry and be able to enjoy a day of drumming, chilling, and picketing passerby's on the road.  

Along with refreshments perhaps a  few tables set up with fundraising merchandise and group specific information (for instance GP, LP, SP, along with MMM and MINORML) could all man informational tables. 

Perhaps even have our guest of honor(speaker/s) at a table where individuals could come talk to them in a more personable setting then just listening to them over a megaphone. 

I realize that you have your heart set on making some trips that day, but I feel we would be more effective growing locally, rather then transporting our locals to some other local.

About bands for a fundraiser,  check out www.kineticstereokids.com , if you can download a few songs from there new album (I recommend times are ruff, and mindfuck) these guys are some funky guys, with a style there own.  I have gotten some positive feedback from these guys on the possibility of them doing a fundraiser.

Flint Marijuana March an Overwhelming Success!

by Rev A.S. "Happy" Wright, Thumb Area MMM
copyright 2002 The Happyhouse Church

Spectacular showing for Flints first Marijuana March!

A Lone dissenter showed up at the rally, and I respect that person for having an opionion, although I feel the press may have brought him for "balanced reporting". There was some heart-felt debate, but no incidents of violence, only outrage.

Over 120 Marchers showed up to the municiple building in Downtown Flint, representing all parts of the Movement. At one time, maybe 11:30, we had over 90 people standing up for your, and our civil rights. By far, medicine was the overwhelmingly held position, but religion, hemp, and recreational use were all amply represented. One person brought a sign that said, simply "GOD does NOT make mistakes", which was my favorite. At 10:01 there were three of us there, including a -real cutie- who "staid the course", and marched with us in Lansing, even getting up on stage with Adam Brooks.

By 11, there were more then fifty of us at the Municiple Building. I guess "potheads" CAN get up at 10am for a protest! We showed Flint, the Thumb, and maybe even the whole world that we are ready to change the laws, sick of being being demonized, and not afraid of persecution! Next Year Flint will meet at the same place, and march on Saginaw street. This year was more rally then march, and as that, it worked.

From Flint, two caravans departed to Lansing and Detroit. About six of us went to Detroit, but around 30 went to Lansing. I can't say much for Detroit because Prof. Hemp did below, but Lansing was massive, and the speakers all did much better then I expected. The March itself, at one point, covered over three blocks in length with flags flying, signs bouncing, cheers ringing, horns honking and banners waving. All in all, I hope we showed that several marches can build a better Lansing march, if timed right, and motivate more local communities to fill the ranks both locally, and in Lansing. Flint was a better rally, but Lansing is the real march. Now if we can only do the "afterparty" in Detroit, and encourage speakers to speak at three events in one day, locally, Lansing, and Detroit. Several rallies to find people, a march in Lansing, and a party in Detroit.

 

I would like to thank everyone who was intregral and involved in Flint; Adrienne, WBNN, Cannabis Culture, Rev Right Time, Rochstone, Joe, Roxanne, Dan, Steve, Tanya, Ken, The Red Shed, The Green Party, Jan and Mikey, the Guy with the THC banner in the Jail, and The Entire Flint Local 420, and WNEM and MLIVE, because bad press, or no press, or even censorship is much better then the weak coverage you woulda given(I have a photo of Jay Brandow at Hash Bash looking disgusted!!!"!

Thank you TV12 and The Flint Journal for giving such comprehensive and impartial coverage to the Flint Marijuana March. Not only did TV12 give us the #1 spot on the six o'clock news, but they did an excellent job in presenting both sides of the issue. The 11 o'clock story was a model of editing, and whoever cut the footage deserves a few pat's on the back! As an added bones, Lindsey was a REAL cutie, and I was glad not only to meet her, but that she distanced herself from her opionion. I din't really know what side she was coming from.

The Flint Journal is responsible for most of the crowd, and does deserve my sincerest thanks. One front page story is worth a thousand fliers, I guess. Not only did the journal provide a before story, but followed through with an actual report from the march afterward. Both of these news agencies are a credit to honest reporting, in contrast to WNEM, TV5, which is a discredit to the same, intentionally blacking out the event. Shame on you TV5, the people are on to the "controlled press", such as yourself! Sometimes saying nothing say's something, and TV5 said "We could care less what YOU the VEIWER think!" The listerners of "The Banana" let me know, they showed! How cool...

 

The Flint police have my top hat off to them, they were at the least vigilant, and at the most supportive. One, in fact, told me that if he did spot a pot smoker, he would come tell me, to "Take Care of It". I felt the police were there more to protect marchers from violent prohibitionists then the city from "crazed pot smokers!" Thank you Flint Police for helping me bring this off without a hitch.

Peace and Determination,
Rev Happy
