On Thursday 16 February We Have A Dream

Each year, to mark the anniversary of the US Prohibition of alcohol on 17 January 1920, a loud and musical noise protest will be held on the grounds of parliament, until cannabis can be freely cultivated. The focus will be on sound, so bring drums, pots and pans, generator based sound systems, megaphones, trash and crash cymbals, and so forth, and begin the setup and soundcheck precisely on 2pm when the house begins to sit, then kick off the DJs at 3:42pm, the bands at 4:20pm with a big session, and finish at 6pm stepping the music up even louder and faster with a massive dance and frenzied party, the idea being to trigger a sound control complaint.

According to the official sitting programme, on Thursdays the house sits between 2 pm to 6 pm:

They incitement to riot is a crime well…

Well I don’t know what will happen now, and we’ve got some difficult days ahead, but it really doesn’t matter with me now, because I’ve been to the mountain top! But I don’t mind, like anybody I would like to live a long life. Longevity has it’s place, but I’m not concerned about that now, I just want to do gods will, and he has allowed me to go up to the mountain top, and I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the promised land. and I may not get there with y’all, but I want y’all to know tonight, that we as a people will get to the promised land, so I’m happy tonight I’m not worried about any man my eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the lord!

And then we known on the doors of Parliament to the chant: I have a dream.

We shall overcome…. someday
