This Land is MY Land


Norfolk wants to seize a thriving, 78-year-old business--Central Radio Company--through eminent domain.  Property owners Bob Wilson, Ed Dickinson and vice president Kelly Dickinson put up a sign on their building protesting the city's action...and officials are forcing them to take it down.

Enough is enough.  This Independence Day week, help us fight for property rights and free speech in Norfolk! 

Bring a picnic, a blanket, your family and friends, and join us at Central Radio Company for a rally for freedom, where we will help Bob, Ed and Kelly tell the city of Norfolk:  This Land is MY Land!

We will have posters and markers for you to make signs supporting Central Radio Company.  The Institute for Justice will also be providing light refreshments.

Speakers include:

Robert Dean, chairman, Tidewater Libertarian Party
Bob Wilson, co-owner, Central Radio Company
Christina Walsh, director of activism and coalitions, Institute for Justice
Pat Simon, chair, Portsmouth Taxpayer Alliance
Erica Smith, staff attorney, Institute for Justice
