04/10/2012 : POKER PLAYERS ALLIANCE LAUNCHES NEW LEGALISATION DRIVE
Poker advocate uses Black Friday anniversary to launch latest initiative
The Poker Players Alliance is using this week leading to the first anniversary of Black Friday to rally U.S. poker players in a fresh protest against the restrictions politicians and enforcement agencies have placed on the game in America.
Titled "The Players Will Never Fold", the new campaign runs through April 16 and encourages players to voice their disapproval of the measures against poker, contacting their political and media representatives.
"One year ago, U.S. government action resulted in the shutdown of major U.S.-facing poker websites. To mark the anniversary of this day and to send the message to our elected representatives that we demand action on legalization to license online poker, let’s all tell Congress that the poker players and enthusiasts of this great nation will never fold in the fight for the right to play America’s favorite card game! " the Alliance urges its members.
