    NYC Rally for Legal MMA - February 8th

    How about someone stepping up to coordinate a NYC throwdown on the evening of the rally? A mini-mega so to speak? I will be real busy with the rally, but would some bully be willing to take this on?

    http://nymmanow.blogspot.com/

    On Tuesday, February 8, at 12 noon a rally will be held for the support of legalized and regulated mixed martial arts in New York State*. We will gather at 250 Broadway, Manhattan, New York, 10007 (Across the street from City Hall).


    This rally is being organized by the Coalition to Legalize Mixed Martial Arts in New York, a non-partisan volunteer group of organizations, gyms, business owners, and individuals who support the legalization and regulation of mixed martial arts in the state of New York.


    In 2010, with the support of Governor Paterson and former Governor Pataki, legislation to legalize and regulate mixed martial arts was approved by the New York State Senate, but not the Assembly. We thus have chosen to rally at 250 Broadway, which houses the district office of Sheldon Silver, the Speaker of the New York State Assembly.


    We ask that you bring picket signs (please keep your comments and images respectful) and, if possible, a pair of focus mitts. Please DO NOT bring any audio projection equipment.


    "If you are a fan, fighter, gym owner, business owner, or organization official who wants to start the 2011 New York State legislative calendar by letting our government know we want legalized and regulated mixed martial arts in New York State, please come show your support! Let's gather together to show our legislators that New York State is not respecting the wishes of its voters! Let's remind our legislators that mixed martial arts is a professional sport and in need of regulation! Let's remind our legislators how much business our state loses and how many jobs are lost to neighboring states where mixed martial arts is properly sanctioned! Let's remind our legislators that we care about the safety of our athletes! Let's remind our legislators that it is the people of New York State who vote for them, and that WE WANT LEGALIZED AND REGULATED MIXED MARTIAL ARTS IN NEW YORK STATE!"

    -Stephen Koepfer of the Coalition to Legalize Mixed Martial Arts in New York.

    I was glib about this in the throwdown thread but I'll take over planning duties. Do we need a space or can we use NYCS?

    I'm going to guess that I won't manage to make it into the city for this, but given that I've been to and organized numerous protests in NYC the past few years please feel free to ask me any questions. I'd be glad to help in any way I can in that regard since my physical presence (probably) won't be there.
