Protesters Call Agenda Change “Taxation without Representation” and Demand to Be Heard
(West Palm Beach, Florida) – “End Charlie’s Bailout,” a coalition of a fiscally conservative activist are not thwarted by a last minute agenda change at the South Florida Water Management District Budget Workshop on July 14th, at 12:00 PM meant to prevent as many activists from attending the workshop. The agenda was set weeks in advance to have doors open at 12:00 PM, and after hundreds of calls and emails have been sent to the district from activists against the U.S. Sugar Corp. bailout, the updated agenda has the doors closed for the first hour.
“End Charlie’s Bailout” is busing activists from Martin, Broward, Miami-Dade, Lee, and Collier counties to attend a protest of Governor Crist’s bailout of the U.S. Sugar Corporation. The buses will be onsite at 11:30 AM and a press conference will be held at that time at the protest site with coalition members against the bailout. Protesters will demand an end to the bailout and demand a cut in property taxes.
“This is just a ploy to get us to back down. We will not back down. We will not be silent. We will be there at the time the agenda starts – 12:00 PM – and demand to be heard.” Robin Stublen, Punta Gorda Tea Party
“We were told in advance doors would open at the budget workshop at 12:00 PM. Once they heard concerned citizens would be attending and voicing their opinions about another bailout put on the backs of taxpayers, they decided to close us out. This is Chicago and Washington politics as usual and this unelected body is promoting taxation without representation. Florida officials should be held to a higher standard.” Jason Hoyt, Tea Party Patriots Live.
