Today we grieve, listen, watch, prepare

If you’re in NYC, the action will mostly be at and around Ground Zero, where many diverse protesters will converge. The forecast calls for rain, but that won’t stop us. Bring orange ponchos if you can!

The 11th is almost here. We hope everyone does their best to be seen and heard tomorrow. Signs, banners, and clothing are very important so people know what you’re striking about. Wearing orange could be a powerful and unified symbol of dissent.

Some people have asked what the demands of this strike are. Your demands are up to you. But here are some ideas: reinstate habeas corpus, end torture and illegal surveillance, impeach (all of those complicit within the US government), and convene a truth and reconciliation commission headed by citizen activists and community leaders.

In other words, we’re not going to take FASCISM lying down, we’re going to fight with nonviolence, truth, and civil disobedience.

Remember to document your actions with photos and video.
