We would like to meet ahead of time at the Pita Jungle listed above so that we can get organized before the protest.

However, if you are not able to meet at Pita Jungle due to time constraints, we look forward to seeing you at the Gilbert Rodeo Park!
For those meeting at the protest site -- the protests start at 3:30 & 6:30 pm.

***at the strip mall immediately north of Gilbert Rodeo Park,
***just east of Val Vista on N side of Ray (dirt parking lot),
***at shopping center on NW corner of Ray & Val Vista (1534 E Ray Rd).

We will have signs and literature available - come on out, and bring a friend!
