This week’s calendar of events for activists (from Patricia Gray)

The times they are a changing and we need to be as active as we can pushing against our rotten government.  Get ready for the upcoming national election.  We need to inform people so that they can make a wise choice.  We know the major media will fill their heads with lies.

We must get out on the streets and fight for the truth and a government
that will be on the side of the 99%.
Wednesday, August 31
9:00 am – 5:00 pm        Harrah’s at Lake Tahoe
                                   highway 50 @ Stateline Ave in Stateline, Nevada
                                   TELL OBAMA NO TPP AT THE LAKE TAHOE 
                                   SUMMIT MEETING
                                   President Obama and Governor Brown will be
                                   there, we need to say NO TPP, and NO
                                   FRACKING to them both. The President and
                                   the governor are not serious about combating
                                   climate change and protecting our environment
                                   as long as they support fracking and the TPP.
                                   This must be a peaceful protest—bring signs
                                   and banners —  NO TPP!  NO FRACKING!
11:00 am             San Francisco Police Officers Association 
                          800 Bryant St. S.F. #2
                          press conference
                          STAND WITH KAEPERNICK
                          S.F. 49er  player Colin Kaepernick refused to stand
                          during the  national anthem.  He did so in protest
                          of the violence of the S.F.P.D. against people of
                          color.  The POA (Police Officers Association) reacted
                          this by denying any racial violence problems—this
                          in spite of all the events of violence.  The POA is in
                          denial, and worse, it attacks those willing to state
                          and stand for the truth.
                                                            ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
