I could REALLY use some help. It’s such a huge topic and I would like to adapt to what people want to discuss and not give a long-winded angry lecture.

I welcome even hostile questions, comments, rants that I would respond to on the air. Let me know if you want your name mentioned or not.

Also announcements by activists are welcome.

Qods Day Guidelines & Protocols

The rally will take place at the amphitheater side of Lake Eola Park from 4pm to 6:30, at the intersection of Washington St. and Rosalind Ave.

1. All participants must respect and observe all local, state, and federal laws. This includes but is not limited too:

a. No blocking sidewalks

b. No disrupting moving traffic

c. No trespassing on private property

d. No disruption of local business

2. In the event of hostilities from onlookers or those opposed to the peaceful rally, all participants must restrain from any reaction of any kind. Contact a volunteer organizer if hostilities are encountered. Local law enforcement presence is expected and will be contacted in the event of hostilities.

3. Safety of everyone is of the utmost importance. Please be mindful of your surroundings. The area is a busy intersection with walkers and commuters. Please stay in the designated area only. Participants should stay near the amphitheater at all times.

4. Please make note of volunteer organizers as they will have the most up to date information and procedures. They will be wearing  white&black armbands.

5. Umbrellas and ponchos are recommended as there is a chance of rain. In the event of severe inclimate weather, the protest will be suspended in order to safeguard all participants. Volunteers will announce suspension.

7. Please do not litter the area with trash/posters/brochures. All participants should dispose of trash in designated areas.

 

Today’s radio show (and podcast soon thereafter) with special guest Felix Balak (my son) joining us in the studio. Posibly others will join us on phone (407-646-2915), twitter (@DearBalak), and on Facebook & Tumblr (Punkonomics). But sometimes it’s hard to keep up with everything while energetically spewing equal-opportunity hate at my advanced age so phone/twitter is best :)
