Hundreds of armed civilians are already encamped along the border, drawn by President Donald Trump’s hyperbole about a migrant caravan “invasion.” 

2 – Sites of Resource Recommendations for Voters –

  For clarification – I DO NOT campaign for any candidates! Am sending these recommendations mainly for info for ballot and propositions.

First site provides some explanations of their recommendations / no recommendations. I think it makes one question and not just accept some of the surface stuff we are seeing about candidates, propositions / ballots etc.

We must be in the streets, beginning the day after the midterm elections to DEMAND and DEMONSTRATE OUR DETERMINATION that:

IN THE NAME OF HUMANITY, THE TRUMP/PENCE REGIME MUST GO!

Stopping this rapidly escalating fascism cannot be done through the normal process of elections!

Call – for ‘Handmaids’:

  You are invited to be a ‘handmaid’ at this demo. Costumes will be loaned out. Contact: afong@jps.net if you are interested by Tuesday 10:00am

This is not a “normal” election season. *11 people murdered in a synagogue while they worshipped, allegedly by a man with a terrifying record of unbridled antisemitism * 15 pipe bombs sent to former presidents, high ranking officials, media institutions, and others who have been repeatedly targeted by Trump * Two Black people murdered, allegedly by a man who spewed racist epithets and had just been denied entry to an African-American church. Through it all, Trump never backed off his hate-filled, fascist rhetoric on the campaign trail. Rather, he ramped it up.

These are not “normal” times. For nearly two years, the Trump/Pence regime has maneuvered through one shocking crime against the people after another, burying each under yet another monstrous offense. Muslims banned. Immigrant children languishing in concentration camps. White supremacy riding high. Women and LGBTQ people slammed backwards. Threats of nuclear war. Accelerated environmental destruction. A pro-fascist majority on the Supreme Court.

On November 7th and November 10th, join a different kind of protest movement, one that refuses to get swept up in another election cycle that buys our silence and capitulation to fascism, and instead demonstrates our singular demand and determination

Saturday, November 10

7. Saturday,  1:00pm – 2:30pm, Protest & Demand: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!

Meet at:

Embarcadero Plaza
SF

Regardless of whether you voted…
No matter who wins…

We must be in the streets, beginning the day after the midterm elections to DEMAND and DEMONSTRATE OUR DETERMINATION that:

 B IN THE NAME OF HUMANITY, THE TRUMP/PENCE REGIME MUST GO!

This is not a “normal” election season

These are not “normal” times.

Trump’s “Make America Great Again” is a 21st century fascist program of Manifest Destiny – “America First” – wrapped in the
flag and Mike Pence’s Bible taken literally, with a program of white supremacy, misogyny, and xenophobia.

Stopping this rapidly escalating fascism cannot be done through the normal process of elections!

On November 7th and November 10th, join a different kind of protest movement, one that refuses to get swept up in another
election cycle that buys our silence and capitulation to fascism
