99ers Wanted: This is how protesting is Done & PLEASE HELP with Twitter #99erAID Round 2 Tomorrow.
Spurred on by the success of last week’s Twitter chat, event organizer Jason Tabrys (@99erAID) has announced a second event with an eye toward weekly #99erAID events.
#99erAID seeks to allow 99ers and the long term unemployed a chance to get together and share ideas while also lending each other support. The group is not affiliated with any political party or advocacy group.
The event is scheduled to run between 8:00 PM EST and 9:30 PM EST with a 90 minute chat on the 99erAID Facebook group chat to immediately follow at 9:30 PM EST.
Any and all are welcome to participate and urged to help spread word about the event but the organizer has asked for respect, civility, and that all comments be made with an eye toward helping 99ers survive these harrowing times.
For more information please contact Jason Tabrys on Twitter @99erAID
99ers & All Unemployed – take a page from Wisconsin, Egypt, and Libya – NOTHING is IMPOSSIBLE.
Tweet these out to all and to media / celebrity contacts:

With more and more credible sources debunking the “official” unemployment rate announced by the US government of 9%, it is clear that the people are starting to get the truth out there. (See 15% Unemployment? http://www.zerohedge.com/article/albert-edwards-and-goldman-sachs-biggest-scandal-last-decade-plunging-labor-force-participat)
After this “inconvenient truth” gets nationwide exposure, how many are still going to be complacently content to sit on the sidelines, continuing to allow the 99er Nation to perish a slow, painful ruination?
Americans ARE NOT too lazy to get out and stand together an a vocal, undeniable demonstration of “We are MAD as HELL and are not going to take it anymore” and lest there be any doubt as to how that is done – check out the video and the continuing saga of Madison Wisconsin (see video)
