Amidst Market Unrest, Americans for Prosperity Gathers Citizens to Protest Big-Government Power Grab

WASHINGTON – About 1,000 citizens will gather in front of the U.S. Capitol on Friday to participate in a free-market call to arms by the grassroots group Americans for Prosperity (AFP). Amidst market uncertainty, and just weeks away from a crucial election, the crowd of citizens from 38 states around the nation will protest a looming big-government power grab and rally to the defense of free-market, limited government principles. The rally will kick-off at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, October 10, in front of the Capitol reflecting pool at the Grant Memorial.

“Big-government supporters are on the attack – the free market and our American way of life are the targets,” said AFP President Tim Phillips. “This rally is a call to arms for those who believe government is the problem, not a solution. The one-thousand citizens who will rally in front of the U.S. Capitol represent millions more Americans across the country who believe in free-market principles.”

Who: Americans for Prosperity
What: Rally to defend the free market, protest big government power grab
When: 2:30 p.m.; Friday, October 10
Where: Grant Memorial, in front of the Capitol reflecting pool

Even as candidates and elected officials are busy blaming economic uncertainty on Wall Street “greed” and deregulation, the rally is part of AFP’s grassroots campaign to expose government policies that have ushered in market unrest and promote free-market solutions. The citizens participating in the Capitol Hill rally will also attend AFP Foundation’s October 10-11 Defending the American Dream Summit at the Marriott Crystal Gateway — the nation’s largest gathering of free-market conservatives committed to changing the policy landscape on issues such as taxes, spending, and unfettered markets. Americans for Prosperity is a co-sponsor of the Summit. Visit www.DefendingtheDream.org for a full agenda.

“We are standing together to send a powerful message that free markets and pro-growth economic policies deliver the American Dream,” Phillips concluded. “Class warfare attacks are camouflage for a far-left, big-government agenda that will shut down our economic engines. Our rally will send a compelling reminder to lawmakers of the belief in more limited government, low taxes, and less spending, shared by millions of Americans.”
