Organizers said in a news release there would be socializing and speeches (30-second to three-minute “rants”) from 5 to 7 p.m. and a ceremonial dumping of symbolic tea at 7 p.m.

Those attending are encouraged to wear 1770s attire, bring a buoyant pillow case/tea bag with a slogan written on it, and make a sign or poster. The news release said those attending would be able to meet people from all walks of life that have had it with “bailouts, politics as usual and a continuation of ‘representation’ that is clueless!” Other topics that were said to be on the table were “acts of war against countries that from our actions may fall into the hands of Al-Qaida,” socialized medicine and kicking the debt can down the road.

“Political speeches from current office-holders are frowned upon,” the organizers wrote.
