    i for one dont want it thrown out even if it was easy, bc the people who did better on this test will do better on a harder one as well. plus if this test gets thrown out we are all screwed bc there will not be another test for a very long time. so for anyone who is 29 they are done.

    Fighting 6019 members and supporters,

    Tomorrow will be the much anticipated protest rally. Support has been pouring in from everywhere. Dozens and dozens of FDNY firehouses have been visited throughout the 5 boroughs and many have committed to attend. Many individuals including private citizens, firefighters(retired and active) and members of the media have committed to attend.

    At the rally tomorrow we will state our complaints with the examination. We will hand out sample exam question sheets of the highly subjective questions to further prove the absolute ridiculousness of the exam.

    We will hand out our Official Declaration of Protest against the entire exam and read it to the public. We will distribute candidate's and private citizen's protest affirmation sheets that will allow any person to enter a formal protest against the examination in unity with FIGHTING 6019.

    We will continuously state and restate how diverse we are in every way. We wish to make it clear that this exam hurt all candidates and that no ethnic group or any group for that matter did any better than another.

    We will then issue a public challenge to ALL fraternal organizations, firefighter's unions and politicians to stand united with us. We have informed as many of the fraternal organizations as possible as well as the unions and politicians of our challenge for them. We are hoping that our diversity will incite the organizations to put aside their differences and unite and work together for this common goal. Every organization contacted is very unhappy with this test and like us, wants it thrown out.

    We have also had a change in the way things work on our end. From now on, no individual from within FIGHTING 6019 will be addressing all members of the protestfdny6019@gmail.com list as an individual. We as the protest group leaders speak with one voice. You as a member will now only be receiving factual updates that have been approved by multiple members.

    We are still actively seeking motivated individuals who want to join us on the front lines of this battle. You will see most of us for the first time tomorrow and we look forward to meeting all of you.

    Please keep checking www.fighting6019.com on a daily basis. We are working hard to add new content and keep you updated.

    Have a great night, we will see you tomorrow at 12 Noon in Union Square Park. Your dissatisfaction with exam # 6019 will be felt tomorrow. BRING A PEN!!!



    -Stay Strong

    Congrats on joining the police force. Saying someone is dumb or " dum " just b/c they failed a test doesn't mean they would get killed on the job...

    Is this the alleged racially biased test? I still don't understand what the big deal is. If you passed you passed, if you failed you should have studied harder... Is there something I'm missing here?
