What's Happening

"The story of demagogues is as old as civilization. They have risen and fallen like the tides, always leaving in their wake misery, destruction and death. They exploit the frustrations and anger generated by a decayed society. They make fantastic promises they never keep. They demonize the vulnerable as scapegoats. They preach hatred and violence. They demand godlike worship. They consume those they rule." ~ Chris Hedges

​"If ever the time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin." ~ Samuel Adams, revolutionary (1722-1803)

Action Alert!

What:  #ResistTrumpTuesday
Where:   Peace Corner (Wall & Greenwood)
When: Tuesday, June 19, 11:30-12:30

This week's theme TBD

Important Reminder: 

These are especially volatile times. Sometimes people engage in inexplicable acts, from the simply rude to the dangerous. Standing on the street corner and loudly protesting Trump and Walden’s unconscionable agenda is our right and, in fact, our duty. But it always carries some element of risk. If you did not attend our “Know Your Rights!” workshop in May, we encourage you to watch it (see below).

We may be an unruly lot at times, but we must remain a peaceful one. Please DO NOT ENGAGE with any counter-protesters that may be present. There’s plenty of room for all.

That said, bring your signs! Bring your voices! Bring your friends! Vive la résistance!
