    Fight Anti-Music Laws With ROAR!
    Saturday, September 6, 2003
    Washington, DC
    Noon - Midnight
    FREE

    At the U.S. Capitol (Upper Senate Park directly off Constitution Ave between New Jersey NW and Delaware Ave NE)

    The US Government has declared a War on Music. We are the target of busts, arrests, harassment and intimidation, all with the ultimate goal of diminishing our culture and silencing the music we love. The recently passed RAVE Act threatens to scare club owners and promoters into shutting down events nationwide for fear of imprisonment of up to 20 years and/or fines of $500,000. Even harsher laws sit in Congress right now.

    Next weekend, join ROAR! for a demonstration against the assault on music and a festival for our civil liberties. We will display the force and unity of our culture through performances by international artists and speakers from major industry groups and politically influential organizations.
