Seattle Is One of 160 Rallies, Nationally, Opposing HHS Mandate at Noon on Friday

Stand Up for Religious Freedom rallies happen at noon on June 8 in 160 cities across the nation including 5 cities in Washington State (Seattle, Longview, Wenatchee, Richland/Tri-Cities and Spokane). Rallies are against the HHS Mandate in Obamacare.

160 Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rallies June 8 noon nationwide
PRLog - Jun. 7, 2012 - What do Portland, Oregon, Seattle, Washington, San Francisco and Los Angeles, California have in common? For one thing, they’re major cities located on America’s West Coast, that part of the country many refer to as the “Left Coast”.

It may come as a surprise to some that within the boundaries of these metropolitan bastions of liberal, if not “über-liberal”, politics, major protests against Obama’s HHS Mandate are scheduled for this Friday, June 8.

The nation’s Stand Up for Religious Freedom rallies (Stand Up rallies), including Seattle’s, are educational, bi-partisan, multi-faith, peaceful and family-friendly.  
Stand Up for Religious Freedom rallies happen at noon on June 8 in 160 cities across the nation including 5 cities here in Washington State (Seattle, Longview, Wenatchee, Richland/Tri-Cities and Spokane). According to national organizers, cumulative attendance at tomorrow’s rallies will surpass the estimated 65,000 people who attended the March 23 protest.

The number of Stand Up for Religious Freedom rallies happening in Washington State is disproportionately high when compared to other states in the union. California, perhaps the most politically liberal of the three west coast states, has rallies scheduled in 11 cities.      

The timing of this second wave of Stand Up for Religious Freedom rallies dovetails with the US Supreme Court ruling expected around the end of June on the constitutionality of the HHS Mandate.

The date of June 8 was specifically selected by national organizers because it is the 223rd anniversary of the day our Founding Father, James Madison, introduced the Bill of Rights to our nation’s First Congress.

In recent days, the Seattle rally received video endorsements from two nationally- and internationally-recognized individuals, Rabbi Daniel Lapin and Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King. The videos are available the Seattle rally website: www.standupseattle.net. In addition, Seattle’s rally will be live-streamed at www.standupseattle.net.

Speakers for Friday’s rally will address the crowd from the steps of the US District Courthouse, 7th and Stewart Streets in downtown Seattle. Speakers include Jay Richards, Sr. Fellow and Director of the Center on Wealth, Poverty and Morality at the Discovery Institute; Washington State Representative Mark Miloscia, Democrat, representing Washington State’s 30th Legislative District; Dr. Tom Curran, founder of Trinity Faith Resources  and host of 1050AM KBLE Radio’s program, Sound Insights; Pastor Joe Fuiten of Cedar Park Church and founder of Positive Christian Agenda organization; former WA State Senator, Mr. Dino Rossi; Fr. Kurt Nagel, pastor of Holy Family Catholic Church, Kirkland, WA; Mr. Shahram Hadian, 2012 Washington State gubernatorial candidate; Patricia Ullman, rally captain for the Seattle rally venue and Cynthia Ulrich, Seattle rally’s director of communications.

As happened at the Stand Up rally on March 23, organizers and attendees will leave the grounds of the US District Courthouse with no environmental impact. Unlike many other protests in Seattle, Stand Up protestors will leave the property in as good or better condition than at the start of the rally.
Local and national rally organizers available for interview.
