From Americans For Prosperity:


Join Taxpayer Tea Party Protests Across North Carolina
Reckless Federal Spending, Trillions of Dollars of Debt and Proposed Tax Hikes Spark a Growing List of Tea Party Protests All Across North Carolina

Excitement is building as we get closer and closer to Tax Day on Wednesday, April 15 and not because we are anxious to file our taxes. There are literally dozens of tea party protests across the state on this date. And they don’t stop there! On the list below, you will see that the tea parties will continue after April 15, too.

Average citizens are bringing their friends, neighbors, children, and handmade signs conveying the message that, like the patriots of old, they don’t want high taxes, oppressive government or trampled freedoms. Chanting “Don’t Tread on Me” and “We, the People”, citizens hope their elected officials hear their voices.

We have been to three tremendous tea parties so far. See the photos and video coverage from Raleigh’s kickoff tea party at the Capitol on March 21, and enjoy this photo of an April 7 Wilmington tea party where hundreds of people exercised their right to assemble and protest on the Cape Fear River.

Please attend one or more of these events and help us spread the word. Our economic freedom is under attack and we must fight back. All of the events below are free and open to the public.

Note: The Edenton Tea Party was one of the earliest organized women’s political actions in United States history. On October 25, 1774, Mrs. Penelope Barker organized, at the home of Mrs. Elizabeth King, fifty-one women in Edenton, North Carolina. Together they formed an alliance wholeheartedly supporting the American cause against “taxation without representation.”

This event will include Revolutionary war re-enactors to celebrate the famous Edenton Tea Party. This is a once in a lifetime event to celebrate our past and protect us from a future of debt and high taxes.

Please register today here.
