    Larger turnout than I would have expected in Massachusettes.

    ...I think it's #2 for me.

    Good work.

    Thanks! Not only was it surprising to see that many Massachusetts people protesting big government, these were all middle-class working people, and you just can't get those people to gather and protest.. That speaks volumes.! To help the turnouts, they had most of the tea parties start at 4pm so that people could work but leave early.
    One thing that bears mentioning-these protests across the country were peaceful and nobody acted out! It was a great family event.

    Really? The original Boston Tea Party was to protest taxes by the British.

    The Boston Tea Party was a direct action protest by colonists in Boston, a town in the British colony of Massachusetts, against the British government. On December 16, 1773, after officials in Boston refused to return three shiploads of taxed tea to Britain, a group of colonists boarded the ships and destroyed the tea by throwing it into Boston Harbor. The incident remains an iconic event of American history, and has often been referenced in other political protests.

    Wiki article.



    The 2009 Tea Parties held across the US are explained here.

    Great shots man. I enjoy seeing pics from other events. It's amazing how organized these events were, the internet is an amazing communications tool.

    No way! You guys sacked the White House and burned it in 1814. You still owe us for that one. :)
