2. Friday, 7:00pm – 8:30pm, Anti-Hate Digital Light Vigil Friday Nite at Crissy Field
Crissy Field Ave.
The members of Gays Without Borders are announcing that the National Park Service has granted us a permit for an electronic-only “candlelight” vigil on Friday, August 25, at 7 pm, and speak out at Crissy Field.
From GGNRA“… permit for the East Beach portion of Crissy Field, west of the restrooms, with easy access to parking, and if the fog cooperates, a view of the airfield and the Golden Gate Bridge.
“We cannot allow open flames near the highly flammable eucalyptus trees however, so real candles won’t be allowed, but battery operated candles, flashlights, cell phone flashlights, cell phone apps that look like candles, glow sticks, anything that lights up but isn’t fire is ok.”
Our grassroots community gathering is designed to preemptively use this public land the night before the Patriot Prayer rally, at the same location. We will be using our digital devices as sources of love and light to show solidarity with all who oppose hate and the Trump agenda.
Saturday, August 26
3. Saturday, 6:00am – 9:00pm, Park Out Crissy Field 8/26 (check site for updates)**
Crissy Field Beach
(Much of the Presidio will be shut down on Saturday – including parking lots. Have not received updates on this action since the permit was granted !)
The idea is for all of us who have cars to occupy the parking around crissy field so that the white nationalist event attendies have to park somewhere in city making it A more difficult for them to gather and B (maybe more importantly) more difficult for them to bring guns because the federal open carry rules do not apply- I am creating the event to make sure someone does….. not sure who’s idea this was originally- not mine- but I think it has legs… or wheels if we can get the word out
4. Saturday, 9:00am – 6:00pm, Anti-Racist Rally

* To provide a counter-point to the hatred of fascists and the “alt-right” by exposing them for the fools that they are with humor.
* To provide safety through distraction and disguise. We can be a buffer to draw attention and shield those most vulnerable and likely to be targetted by right wing extremists.
* To confront and mock fragile egos, garbage ideas, and the toxic, delicate form of masculinity endemic in the far right.
* To encourage new people to join action with creative resistance.
