Update 12:45 pm: Spoke to soon, protest is back on, 9am at city hall.
Update 11:45 pm: This might have been the most effective and shortest protest in history. Unsound is now saying the protest is on hold – comically like the event they were organizing to save – and soundin like the city council themselves have been in touch to try and calm them. I’ll update when they update. Facebook protests for the win! They toppled Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, an the city of long beach in six months. – Shaun
unsOund Surf (359 E.Park Ave, Long Beach, NY 11561) is organizing a protest via facebook regarding their claim that the entire Quiksilver Pro has been cancelled. I personally think this event is a once in a lifetime chance. If we don’t have this event in Long Beach this year, Quiksilver will take their money to either the Rockaways or the Jersey Shore- who will welcome them with open arms.
The protest is Tuesday, August 30th 9am at City Hall. If you can’t make it, call the City of Long Beach and make your voices heard: 516-431-1000 – City Service , 516-431-1001 – City Manager.
