East Moline's Labor Day Parade was a fun filled day for many folks on Monday, September the 5th. Among the many floats and walking groups in the parade, the Illinois Liberty Alliance of the SuperLiberty.com group sponsored entry of the Ron Paul 2012 Presidential grassroots volunteers teamed up with the Fully Informed Jury Association (FIJA) to also celebrate Jury Rights Day which happened to fall on the same day as Labor Day this year.
The Illinois Liberty Alliance entry rolled through the parade with 11 volunteers, A white Ron Paul 2012 decorated van playing Ron Paul supporting music, two FIJA banners which read, “Called for Jury Duty? Know your Rights. FIJA.ORG”, over 3,500 pieces of literature, and bags of candy and balloons. The literature included Ron Paul newspapers made by an Iowa grassroots group and Jury Rights Day cards created by the Fully Informed Jury Association (FIJA).
Nancy Brandt of Henry County was the coordinator of this event. “We spent 5 1/2 hours stamping the literature with "Illinois Liberty Alliance. Find us at: SuperLiberty.com". We enjoyed walking with the banners, and we distributed 1600-1700 Jury Rights Day cards at East Moline, Illinois' Labor Day Parade. One man I gave a card to said, 'I better look at this. I've got jury duty coming up.' I told him to go to the FIJA website.”
