Lots of folks are only now hearing about the nationwide Tea Party events on Friday and beyond — as well as the pig roasts and anti-stimulus protests that paved the way for revolts across the country.

A reminder of the main resources for activists looking to join:

The New American Tea Party page from “a coalition of citizens and organizations concerned about the recent trend of fiscal recklessness in government…dedicated to the Washington, D.C. effort specifically sponsored by the American Spectator, the Heartland Institute, Americans for Tax Reform, the National Taxpayers Union, Americans for Prosperity, and the Young Conservatives Coalition” is here.

The #TCOT has a site here and #dontgo has a list of links to official Facebook Event (and some non-Facebook) pages for each confirmed Chicago Tea Party.

PJTV’s clearinghouse for protests is here.

On Twitter, search “#teaparty” for the most up-to-date organizational info.

Glenn Reynolds has links to protest info in Nashville, Houston, D.C., St. Louis, San Diego, Atlanta, Orlando, Kansas City, and Cleveland. Glenn also has a related poll.

Many readers have requested that I post their tea party info (and I know a lot of you don’t use Facebook, so I’ll post the time/date/location when I can). Some will be held this weekend. Others are planning into the summer. I’ll try and get to all the requests and will add to the list. Leave info on your neighborhood party in comments if you’ve got it.

Fiscal responsibility is the new counterculture!

Via WND: Sen. Jim DeMint says…

Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., a staunch opponent of the federal government’s increase in size and spending legislated by President Obama’s stimulus package, has issued a call for Americans to stand up – literally – and take back their freedom.

“I would think it’s time to start thinking about peaceful demonstrations,” DeMint said in an interview with Georgia’s Augusta Chronicle. “The power of the people is there. Freedom is in the people’s hands right now, and it’s about to slip through.”
