Thursday, 4:00pm – Rally in Solidarity with Honduras
24th Street & Mission
A rally will be held by Bay Area Hondurans United Against the Honduras Dictatorship, to raise awareness and defend the victory of Salvador Nasralla, candidate of the Alliance Against the Dictatorship of Honduras.
On Dec. 22, the U.S. State Department recognized the re-election of Juan Orlando Hernández, despite the obvious fraud and massive protests throughout the country. Honduras was one of only 8 countries at the UN that voted to support Donald Trump’s declaring of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, an obvious quid pro quo.
The electoral fraud is so evident that even the Organization of American States, OAS, has called for new elections to be held.

We will screen print, paint and rig flags to ship to water-climate protectors at Wiconi Un Tipi Camp, Wakpa Waste Camp, Brave Heart Society, and Dakota Rural Action to support of their work to stop the Keystone Pipe Line. These are the groups are working with the Promise to Protect.
We will be cutting fabric, screen printing, hand painting, and rigging. If anyone is up for sewing sleeves we could do that too. I am looking for a happily working sewing machine that someone can bring, lend or donate.
We will be working outside and with paints and inks, so dress appropriately.
Snacks and drinks to share welcome.
Hear the call of Mother Earth! She as well as us are going through a shift and many things are changing. While this is going on we can help alleviate and rid ourselves by smudging.
The art of smudging is an ancient practice done by our ancestors to purify, cleanse, protect and transmute all the gunky gnarly toxic invisible but tangible energy that permeates our atmosphere.
Lee Day will be a day of unity, peace and empowerment. We will have a United Against Violence Panel, this will be a discussion about gun violence. The panel that will feature:
Oscar Grant Foundation, L’s Up Gunz Down Foundation, Christopher LaVell Jones Foundation, King David Respect for Life Inc., Alan Blueford Foundation, Reggina’s Dancing Angels.
We will also have dancers, spoken word, singers, praise dancers and more.
Happy New Year!
Hoping for a YEAR of PEACE & JUSTICE – Globally
