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