    Just to clarify, I said it does NOT amaze me that affiliates aren't going - I do understand the concerns of affiliates not showing up - however, what does amaze me is the lack of effort by major organizations, such as the Poker Player Alliance, to help out a mere concerned citizen like Debbie Richardson in organizing the event that is mainly for them (the 250,000 people in the Poker Player Alliance who want the law re-examined).

    As far as how many people go, it is realistic not to expect crowds of multiple thousands of protestors to an event planned so quickly about a subject not universally known. That is why the PPA help would have been important.

    But this is how changes in society happen through civil action. You start with one small protest to get the word out. You keep talking, you keep spreading the word, and sooner or later a majority of the people are aware of your issue. Then you keep protesting through all means available and you don't stop until the issue is resolved. IMHO

    Your exactly right. What public effort is being made? There are millions that would support our cause, we just have to get to them. Any group with some resources could make a difference.

    Please check out our law page for tools to spread the word.

    Is it OK to repost your article from CasinoGamblingWeb on my Bet2K site (with links back of course)? I have a gambling legislation blog it would go perfectly on and will put it on the front page as well if so. I can also spread the word via my small 300 person mailing list. I know it is not nearly as big as some, but I bet if we all included it in our mailers (a good excuse to get another mailer out anyhow!) then we could probably reach 100K people throughout CAP member's sites.

    This is what I expect out of affiliates. Of course you can use one of our articles to promote the protest! And sending out to mailing lists is a great way to get the word out.

    I also wish to request that Online Casino, Poker and Sportsbook Operators send out a simple email to all their US player base letting them know of the protest. You also can use our information to quote and inform your players.

    Imagine what we could accomplish if we all come together.

    Does anyone have a link to any news media coverage of the event?

    I went to all the Washington DC TV News websites to see what they were saying about the protest and hopefully find a live newsfeed or video, but I cant find any mention of the protest. I also checked the DC area Newspapers.

    Wasnt it scheduled for today? Where in DC is it taking place?

    I think it would be very helpful if there was a web cast of the protest. I am eager to see the turnout and hear what people are saying, both protesters and observers.

    According to the latest J. Todd video that came out today at:

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=qB0PEc-Twjk

    there are only about 300 people (+ or -) that are planning on attending. Debbie had mentioned that a decent turnout was required for the media to consider to be significant enough to warrant coverage. At least the weather is nice today.................
