Marc Emery is imprisoned because of the insane Drug War. The FREE MARC EMERY Campaign was at Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s Rally to Restore Sanity and or Fear in Washington D.C. on Saturday, October 30th handing out 2,000 FREE MARC water bottles, 15,000 information cards, and 40 free t-shirts to spread the message of Drug Sanity!

On October 30 at the National Mall in Washington D.C., the late-night comedy duo will host the event (two events?) as a satirical response to the recent rally held by zealous conservative newsnut Glenn Beck and other protests against various US wars. The FREE MARC Campaign will be there handing out waterbottles labeled with information about Marc Emery and the failed Drug War to the crowds streaming into the event from locations around the perimeter.
• If possible, volunteers should meet up EARLY – 7:30am sharp at the Metro Center in downtown D.C. (607 13th St. NW – Map & Details – Google Map). Click here for more information on parking lots and prices in the area. It will undoubtedly be extremely busy, so getting early will be essential to actually getting close to the Rally location.
• Organizers will have a U-Haul truck loaded with waterbottles and other handouts. Volunteers in groups of 2 or 3 people will unload cases of water and boxes of handouts at “drop-spots” and start handing them to every person walking by until they are all gone.
• Any volunteers that miss the pick up spot or come later than 7:30am can call FREE MARC Campaign organizer Catharine on her cell and rendezvous with us at another water “drop-spot” along the way.
The Rally(ies) are from Noon to 3pm, but we will probably be handing out the majority of materials in the hour or two before the Rally and continue through the event if we have any left.
All volunteers receive a free FREE MARC t-shirt!
