Worldwide Rallies to Free Marc Emery - Saturday, September 18

CANNABIS CULTURE - Activists are holding rallies in over 90 cities worldwide in support of 'Prince of Pot' Marc Emery TODAY - Saturday, September 18, 2010 - a week after his sentencing in an American courtroom for operating a marijuana seed business in Canada.

To see some photos and videos of rallies, go to www.Facebook.com/MarcEmery -- photos will be collected and shared on www.FreeMarc.ca!

Marc is a political prisoner behind bars in the US after being extradited to the US by the Conservative government of Canada as political retribution for successfully using the profits from seed sales to fund marijuana legalization efforts in North America and around the world. He is currently imprisoned at SeaTac Federal Penitentiary in Washington State (send Marc mail!). Marc was sentenced on September 10 to five years in US jail.

Canadian Minister of Public Safety Vic Toews will begin considering Marc's repatriation to Canada through the treaty transfer process in coming months. Help to remind Vic Toews and the Conservative Government that Canadians and people around the world want Marc Emery brought back to Canada and set free!

Rallies and Days of Action are planned for SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2010 in cities around the world.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO

On this day, one or two people can create a lot of awareness. Just by holding up a banner or sign at a busy intersection or a bridge overpass, anywhere lots of people and cars go by.

If you have 10 people, put 5 pairs of people into 5 good locations, not all together in one spot. Two people are as visible as 10 or 20, so spread out throughout the community. This is more effective than a rally, which can sometimes obscure the message by making the crowd too busy with competing signs.

Two to four people per intersection (one on each corner) is a suggested maximum. This kind of support maximizes the message and the individual's ability to get it out. One person can make a difference!

Take some photos, indicate where you are and put it on facebook or send it nicole@nicoleseguin.com so she can put it up at www.FreeMarc.ca

SUGGESTED LOCATIONS

• A busy intersection or bridge overpass of a highway
• A US Congressman's or Canadian MP's local constituency office
• Near the entrance of baseball or football stadiums
• A University campus Student union building

SIGNS & BANNERS

Signs can easily be made on large pieces of cardboard or bed sheets. The best for a large sign is King size bed sheet banners from a local thrift store. This is ideal for hanging from bridges and overpasses.

Here are some suggested slogans for banners and signs. Try to get the FreeMarc.ca website onto your banner if possible.

• Free Marc Emery - FreeMarc.ca
• Marc Emery - Political Prisoner - FreeMarc.ca
• Google Marc Emery - Political Prisoner
• Return Prince of Pot Marc Emery to Canada from US prison
• Bring Marc Emery home to Canada - FreeMarc.ca
• Return Marc Emery to Canada - FreeMarc.ca
• Send Marc Emery home to Canada - FreeMarc.ca

INFO HANDOUTS & PETITION

Give people the "Free Marc Emery" information handout! (Also helpful for you to explain who Marc Emery is and what's happened to him!)
