Tea Party Protests Planned

ATLANTA - Tea parties are being planned for this coming Friday in more than a dozen U.S. cities, including Atlanta.

They won't be silly tea parties like the one from Alice in Wonderland, but serious demonstrations like the Boston Tea Party of 1773 that protested British taxation.

The one set for noon on the steps of Georgia's State Capitol is being planned by several local groups that recently banded together on the internet.

"The time for rhetoric is gone and it's time for action," says Debbie Dooley of Duluth. She and co-organizer Michael Mealling met face to face for the first time Tuesday.
