RESISTANCE MARCH 2018

January 6, 2018

 JANUARY 20 IS HERE AGAIN! MARCH WITH US IN PALM SPRINGS TO SHOW THAT RESISTANCE IS GROWING, NOT GOING AWAY.

WHO

I’M SENDING THIS TO NEIGHBORS AND OTHER FRIENDS WHO HAVE INDICATED LIBERAL POLITICAL LEANINGS, BUT WHO MAY NOT GET NOTICES FROM OTHER LOCAL DEMOCRATIC SOURCES.  PLEASE, PASS THIS ON TO ANYONE WHO MIGHT COME TO THE MARCH – EVEN IF THEY DON’T VOTE IN CALIFORNIA.  IT’S CATHARTIC AND THE MORE WE HAVE, THE BIGGER THE IMPACT. BRING EVERYONE YOU CAN!  THIS EVENT IS BEING ORGANIZED AND SUPPORTED BY THE 1,700 LOCAL MEMBERS OF COURAGEOUS CALIFORNIA RESISTANCE, THE DEMOCRATIC HEADQUARTERS OF THE DESERT, THE 10 DEMOCRATIC CLUBS OF THE COACHELLA VALLEY, AND MANY OF OUR DEMOCRATIC ELECTED OFFICIALS.

 

WHAT

A MARCH OF COACHELLA VALLEY ACTIVISTS TO SHOW THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION THAT THEIR ACTIONS IN THE PAST YEAR ON HEALTH CARE, FREEDOM OF RELIGION, IMMIGRATION POLICY, DACA, ENVIRONMENTAL POLICIES, PUBLIC EDUCATION, TAXATION, AND A HOST OF OTHER ISSUES HAS INCREASED THE RESISTANCE TO TRUMPISM.

 

WHEN

SATURDAY, JANUARY 20, 11:30 AM TO 1:30 PM

 

WHERE

GATHER AT FRANCES STEVENS PARK, 500 N. PALM CANYON, PALM SPRINGS

 

WHY?

IF WE DON’T SHOW UP, THE PRESS AND THE TRUMP SUPPORTERS CAN ASSUME WE’RE HAPPY WITH THE LEADERSHIP OF THIS ADMINISTRATION. WE MUST  NOT LET THEM BELIEVE THAT!  DO YOU WANT THEM TO ASSUME THAT LACK OF PROTEST MEANS WE’RE OKAY WITH THE MUSLIM BAN, DECIMATING THE  ENVIRONMENT,  STALKING OUR LATINO NEIGHBORS, DEFUNDING HEALTH CARE (ESPECIALLY WOMENS HEALTH CARE) , UNDERMINING LGBTQ RIGHTS AT EVERY TURN, RESCINDING DACA PROTECTIONS, BUILDING A BIG WALL,  APPLAUDING RACISTS AS “FINE PEOPLE”,  GUTTING PUBLIC EDUCATION AT ALL LEVELS, PASSING A TAX BILL THAT BENEFITS CORPORATIONS AND THE WEALTHY SO THEY CAN CLAIM A DEFICIT PROBLEM TWO YEARS DOWN THE LINE AND MAKE THE CASE THAT THEY MUST CUT SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE, AND OTHER SAFETY NET PROGRAMS TO BE RESPONSIBLE BUDGET MANAGERS?  NO! NO! NO!  BUT IF WE DON’T SHOW UP, THEY’LL NEVER KNOW WE CARE. 

 

JUST AS IMPORTANT AS THE NATIONAL STATEMENT IS THE POSITIVE EFFECT THIS CAN HAVE FOR OUR LOCAL DEMOCRATIC ELECTED OFFICIALS AND PROMISING CANDIDATES FOR WHOM OUR SUPPORT IS CRUCIAL. THIS MARCH – AND A BIG TURN-OUT WILL DRAW LOCAL PRESS COVERAGE THAT WILL HELP  OUR DEMOCRATIC INCUMBENTS  AND CONTENDERS.  ALL OUR DEMOCRATS HAVE EITHER A TOUGH GOP INCUMBENT TO BEAT OR GOP CHALLENGERS WE MUST FEND OFF.  SOME OF YOUR LOCAL CANDIDATES WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM A GOOD TURN-OUT ARE;

CONGRESSMAN RAUL RUIZ, M.D.

COUNTY SUPERVISOR V. MANUEL PEREZ – 4TH DISTRICT RIVERSIDE COUNTY

ASSEMBLYMAN EDUARDO GARCIA – 56TH DISTRICT STATE ASSEMBLY

JOY SILVER – DEM. CHALLENGER FOR STATE SENATE AGAINST GOP SEN. JEFF STONE (BIG TRUMP LOVER)

 

COMMIT!  DO IT!  HAVE FUN WITH LIKE MINDED FRIENDS AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

2018 IS HERE.  WE WORK HARD AND WIN OR WE HAVE A FUTURE LIKE THE PRESENT.

 

Thank you, my friends.  I won’t be sending out this type of email again to you, but would encourage you to sign up to get the ProgressiveNews! updates on all progressive/Democratic activities in the valley by going to progressivenewsinthedesert@gmail.com and signing up to get their newsletters/updates.  It’s free, but of course a small contribution to support this excellent service of our Democratic Headquarters is always welcome. 

 

Happy Blue Year,

Pris
