Protest Cheney Visit

ACT Alert Update: Dick Cheney is Coming To Albuquerque Saturday

We’re joining with other progressive organizations to tell Dick Cheney and his local Republican allies how we feel. This is our chance to make a statement against the policies of the last four years.

Call us at 830-9250 if you’re interested in helping us prepare for this event. There are people to call and signs to make. Our goal is to show that ACT is still here and we are making sure our voices are heard. And call us if you’re interested in coming to the event!!!

When: Saturday, July 31st, 12:30pm

Where: We will meet at our Albuquerque HQ at 5600 Menaul (between San Mateo and San Pedro). Then carpool up to our staging area at Stapleton Elementary school, 4477 9th Ave. NW, Rio Rancho.
Note: MoveOn, Sierra Club, Stop the War Machine and the League of Conservation Voters are also participating.

MoveOn says:

Whatever your message is for Cheney, be sure to spell it out on a big piece of poster board and join the crowd of other progressive voters that will be protesting his campaign stop in Rio Rancho tomorrow, Saturday, July 31, starting at 1:30.

Parking for the protest will be at Stapleton Elementary School in Rio Rancho. Stapleton is about .75 mile from Rio Rancho Mid High -- the location of Cheney's event. After heading west on Northern Blvd. in Rio Rancho, turn left on Rockaway and make an immediate right on 9th -- Stapleton's parking lot is on your right.

Vans and cars will be there to shuttle people to the protest locations. Water will be available. Arrive at the staging area between 1 and 1:30. If you are coming from Albuquerque, it will take you at least 30 minutes to get to Stapleton.
And you can always attend the Kerry/Edwards Coordinated Campaign Office Grand Opening afterwards. Saturday, July 31st from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM at 3301 Central NE, Albuquerque, NM. Call (505) 256-2570 for information.
