FRIDAY LIST #6

Friday List 6

Good grief, this is the sixth Friday List!  How time flies when you are fighting fascism.  A slow week for me.  Aside from blogging and egging you all on, I donated a bit more money, signed a few petitions, and after a lovely lunch at a Mexican joint in the boonies outside Chapel Hill, took the proprietor aside, gave him my name and phone number, and told him if he knew anyone having trouble with immigration, I would be happy to help if I could.

David said...
1. Bought a subscription to the online New York Times. (Given the recent exclusion of various news outlets from Trump administration press conferences, I will count this as a political act.)

2. Attended a march to support immigrants sponsored by our Neighborhood Action Coalition.

3. Contributed to campaign of Manka Dhingra for an open state Senate seat that will be filled in a fall special election.

4. Represented three educators in a grievance meeting. Called a special lunchtime union meeting to discuss support for these educators. (After reading articles by Marshall Ganz and Jane McAlevey, I’ve decided to include union activities on my list.)

5. Phoned Sen. Murray’s office to encourage her to join Sen. Schumer in calling for Sessions’ resignation.

Howie Said...
Contributed to democratic national committee, postponed donating to Israeli peace group benefiting attacked Muslim community center in Florida and planned to email my senators about Friedman, speaking as IDF veteran, (in a way), plus pledged to doctors without borders and witnessed having to rush to emergency room in Brooklyn, just what the doctors and other professionals do heroically on the front lines and what is at atsake
Tom Cathcart said...

Went to the "Town Hall" for No Show Faso along with 760 other people in the small city of Kingston, NY. Lots of press coverage. Gave some more money to Ossoff.

Will said...
Went to a rally last week asking Senator Shelby to hold a town hall in Tuscaloosa. His main Alabama office is in the city.

Went to Montgomery with several other members of Alabama Arise to lobby the state legislature to end judicial override, the practice in which judges may impose the death penalty despite a jury's decision to give life without parole.

I. M. Flaud said...
I renewed my membership in the Union of Concerned Scientists, who have been claiming in countless emails, ever since I responded to one of their email actions, I was a lapsed member. I have no recollection of ever having joined. The ruse, if that's what it was, worked. Then I contributed another $5 to Our Revolution, in a valiant effort to counteract the relentless banal evil of big money (other than mine) in politics.
