With as many as 20,000 people in attendance, the Atlanta Tea Party on April 15 was one of the largest and most successful Tea Parties in the country. The Atlanta Tea Party on July 4, 2009 had been expected to be just as large. Unfortunately, plans have changed. Simon Property GroupÃƒï¿½Ã‚Â has forced the cancellation of the Atlanta Tea Party.
The Atlanta Tea Party wasÃƒï¿½Ã‚Â forced to cancelÃƒï¿½Ã‚Â its Independence Day celebration in Gwinnett, after losing its location due to the objection of GwinnettÃƒï¿½Ã‚Â Place Mall (a Simon company.) The Tea Party had been scheduled to take place in the parking lot of the old Macy’s building at GwinnettÃƒï¿½Ã‚Â PlaceÃƒï¿½Ã‚Â since March.
UPDATE: A leading Atlanta TEA Party organizer is reportedly going to be featured on the Glen Beck Show on Monday, 6 July 2009, 5pm.
With just a few days left until the Fourth of July Tea Parties begin, this is veryÃƒï¿½Ã‚Â unfortunateÃƒï¿½Ã‚Â timing! One wonders why Simon Property Group waited until now to interfere.
Liberal Atlanta paper’sÃƒï¿½Ã‚Â snarkyÃƒï¿½Ã‚Â reaction.
