Just added a couple more activities this week due to the horrors coming at us, I’m sure there will be more. Please sign up to twitter.com and keep track. You’ll find me @bethpikegirl
New-Today, Wednesday, June 27th, Bay Resistance is asking you to rally 4 pm at Unon Square or 5 pm at 767 Market St, SF over the Janus SCOTUS decision, bit.ly/januswhy
Since I was out of the country for a bit, the pace of resistance has necessarily picked up in reaction to the pace of government cruelty and incompetence. Not to worry-just kidding, worrying is absolutely required- just pick as many of these actions as you can handle and then add one…or two. Here goes:
