don't laugh at me, but I saw this thread earlier and thought, oh cool! I told dh and he asked if there was any danger of getting arrested at these things. Is it a public/private mall issue of whether there are rights?

Also, is the Boston one at Fanieul Hall?

the Boston one is actually at the State Capital to support pending legislation being voted on. i think they may have a VS on on the 1st at Fanieul Hall but im not sure about that yet. i would love to see legislation in mass. passed, since i am down there often and always feel very uncomfortable.

From what I understand you or whoever is orgainzing the one in your area should call the mall management and let them know what is going on to see if you need permission...or a permit or something. I'm still kinda fuzzy on the details myself.

yeah planning has been left up to me and it is really scaring me, trying to call to get permission, and calling the media just the thought is making my stomache revolt. I just don't think i am the best for the job and i am afraid i will screw it up, i mean i don't know all of my facts i just know what i feel if i am the one that calls media and organizes it and they want to intervue me i am just afraid i won't properly represent our agenda. YKWIM? I know how I FEEL, but all the facts only half reside in my head.

courtney


who the heck do you call to get permission for a public demonstration.

off to the proper thread, everytime i try to post i get told that the server is to busy. so i am still not subscribed. I really wish someone with more experience would do this...but i guess everyone has to start somewhere.

we are just going to 'happen' to be at VS and just 'happen' to bf our babies. this isn't about chanting, locking arms or getting drug off by the mob squad...it's about showing that NIP is natural. the more ppl. who NIP, the more accustomed the 'public' will be to seeing bf and hopefully the more accepting they will be!
stnking typos

It's DS' 3rd birtday party that day, otherwise I'd so be NIP-ing at my crappy little mall's VS! I'd prolly be the only one there. I live in such a conservative area.

Oh well, I'll get in the spirit anyway and whip out a boob at the petting zoo!

If anyone would like to get involved but can't be there, you can send out the press release to local media and call other bf moms of contact your LLL!

Have a great NURSE IN!
