Dads Against Mercury is very proud to be a co-sponsor of the July 20 Rally on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.

WHEN? Wednesday, July 20, 2005 8:30am March 9:30 Rally/Press Conference
Times may vary a little to support speaker schedules.

WHAT TO BRING? Personally designed signs, posters, etc. It does not have to be professionally made, just make one. The media loves pictures of children. Let's stay away from using any profane language. Anything else you want to express about what has happened to your child and this huge cover-up will be great. Feel free to say things about the pharmaceutical companies, CDC, FDA, IOM, politicians, bad reporting from the news network, etc. If you have urine/stool test which show high levels of mercury this is a great piece of information for the media. Please also remember this march/rally is about our children being poisoned by the mercury (Thimerosal) in their vaccines. You may want to reinforce your poster on the back so it will not flop. Sticks attached to the back of your poster will make it much easier to hold.Remember, you cannot take the banners or signs into any buildings.

WHAT TO WEAR? Wear comfortable, cool clothing. Rally T-Shirts are being designed and will be sold prior to the rally and at the rally. They can be purchased soon on the NAA web site. http://www.nationalautismassociation.org/

WHERE TO STAY? According to Moms Against Mercury, rooms have been blocked with special group rates at the following hotels:

Holiday Inn Capitol- http://www.holidayinncapitol.com/ (This hotel is very close to rally site)Because of the overwhelming response to the rally, this hotel is already completely booked for the evening of the 19th and 20th. You may try to see if other rooms open up, but it looks like we've booked this hotel solid!Room rate-$189.00Location: 550 C Street S.W., Washington, DC 20024Phone number: 202-479-4000Closest Metro Station: L'enfant Plaza

Henley Park Hotel- http://www.henleypark.com/ (Short Metro ride to rally site)Room rate-$169.00Location: 926 Massachusetts Avenue N.W., Washington, DC 20001Phone number: 202-414-0503 or 1-800-222-8474Closest Metro Station: Metro Center (can be accessed through the Grand HyattWashington)

Book rooms as soon as possible under the name of Moms Against Mercury Group to get those specified rates. It would be to everyone's advantage to try and get a couple of roommates to cut down on the cost of the room. Rooms are blocked for Tuesday the 19th and Wednesday the 20th for those who want to come in Tuesday night and stay the rally night.

Maps will be provided. Water will be available at the rally.

SPECIAL THANKS: We would like to extend special thanks to the fine people of Whole Foods, and PepsiCo for donating bottled water for rally/march attendees, and to our friends at Penske for loaning us a truck to get the water and other materials to the rally.

MERCURY FACT SHEET: Download the "Power of Truth" Mercury Fact Sheet (in .pdf format), print multiple copies and bring it to the rally to distribute.

REGISTRATION: If you are planning on attending the rally, please register at http://www.nationalautismassociation.org/rally.htm. Even if you have already sent emails to let us know you will attend, PLEASE still go to the NAA registration page and fill out the registration. We have emailed a few in this group and told them to go to this link. This will be the easiest way to keep up with the numbers. Even if you are only going to drive up that day please take the time to register. Much of the planning will involve the number of people attending. If you know anybody coming ask them to fill out this registration form.

A few of you emailed and said I am coming plus so many more. Please make sure each person in your group fills out the registration form or you can fill out the form and put the total number in your group. ALL RALLY/MARCH EMAILS FROM NOW ON WILL BE GENERATED FROM THIS DATABASE, SO IF YOU DON'T REGISTER WE WILL NOT KNOW TO SEND YOU AN EMAIL WITH RALLY/MARCH UPDATES. Okay, enough about the registration.

Dads Against Mercury will have water at the rally site. If you know it is going to be a really hot day you may want to pack a few extra bottles of water especially for those of you bringing children. The water may go fast and we do not want people getting too hot.

You may want to bring a beach towel so you can sit down on the lawn.The rally should be over around noon. You may want to make appointments in the afternoon to meet with your Congressman.
Children are welcomed and encouraged to attend.

T-shirts can be pre-ordered now and NAA will start mailing them out at the end of next week. To order, go to the NAA's site. A parent is making and donating banners which will look like the t-shirts.
You can help us by telling everyone you know about the March/Rally and getting people to attend. For further information email contact@dadsagainstmercury.org

Mark July 20th on your calendar and come out and join us in honor of all our injured children . . . and get the word out!
