WE THE PEOPLE – A Presidential Primary Tent Convention
Friday, February 5 – Sunday, February 7, 2016
Veterans Park in Manchester, NH
On Primary Weekend February 5-7, 2016, patriots from across New Hampshire and the United States will gather at “political ground zero” in Manchester, NH in the first-ever We the People Convention to fight big money in politics. The Revolutionary-themed Convention will feature multiple presidential candidates, national reform leaders and entertainers, educational and artistic programming in a 500-capacity heated tent across the street from the Center of NH Convention Center, where national media are based during the primary. The Convention will include public demonstrations and targeted marches to presidential candidates to secure “first 100 days” commitments and generate a final burst of national media attention for the Fight Big Money agenda at the start of the 2016 election.
The Convention is free and open to the public – all are welcome to attend! Housing will be on your dime. Donations are gladly accepted.
If you plan on coming, it's critical that you reserve specific ticket block(s) through Eventbrite. Although the event is free of charge, we need your help in managing our costs. Many of you have pre-registered by RSVPing on this page, but we need to you register through Eventbrite as so we know who will be in the tent at different points throughout the weekend and can keep track for food.
A detailed map of all Manchester parking is here. We recommend the Victory Garage or the City Hall Lot - they are free on the weekends. On-street parking close to the park is $0.75/hour until the early evening Friday. Free parking, not identified on the map, is available a few blocks West and folks will need to identify parking for themselves (ie, near Bronstein Park) when they arrive.
ECHO ACTION & NH SPIRIT WILL BE TABLING AT THE EVENT!
9:00 AM - Dave Moloney of NH PLAN is speaking on a panel about Big Money and the Environment
★ 1:45 PM - Governor Hassan has been invited to speak as a Senate candidate. We encourage pipeline opposition to attend!
