Tampa Bay residents who want to #FreeBritney will have a chance to rally this weekend when Timothy Rivera—co-host of the all-Britney podcast “Original Doll”—and Bay area local Claire Kentwood host a march this Saturday, July 10 at Curtis Hixon Park in downtown Tampa.

Unless you are taking a media sabbatical, you’ve probably heard of the plight America’s pop sweetheart is going through. In short, Spears is trying to break free from a conservatorship controlled in part by her dad since 2008.

Saturday’s march stages at 10 a.m. at the Curt—located at 400 N Ashley Dr.—and will start moving at 11 a.m. It’s the second Tampa march for Rivera who co-organized a march with Kentwood back in April, as well as other rallies in Orlando, Miami, Minneapolis and his hometown of Austin, Texas.

We will rally in support of Britney terminating the fraudulent conservatorship she has been placed under since 2008, stripping her of basic human and civil rights,” the event page states. The rally is also to “raise awareness of conservatorship abuse.”

Signs, tees, and all the proper #freebritney accoutrements are requested for the march, which, naturally, ends with brunch at Xochitl Cocina Mexicana located 307 W Palm Ave., which is about a 20 minute walk away down the Tampa Riverwalk.

Definitely beats trying to free insurrectionists.

#FreeBritney March. Saturday, July 10. 10 a.m. Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, 400 N Ashley Dr., Tampa. INFO
