Will the WOMEN'S MARCH fizzle like OCCUPY WALL STREET?
Is protest broken? Disruptive tactics have failed to halt the
rise of Donald Trump.
Here's a Parody Ad – that ran on
Fox News –that Turns Trump
Campaign Rhetoric on Its Head --
When the Republicans took power
in 2004 the first thing they did was to reward the Banks
who financed them with a Bankruptcy Bill --
Somebody needs to be rebutting FOX LIES. Republican Voters are not watching MSNBC so it needs to be TV ADS in Swing States especially!
More than a how-to manual
for organizers, NO SHORTCUTS is how to build working-class power.
|Before you post that anti-Trump image or clever biting remark -- think this -- will this help to turn the opinion of Republicans? Would it be better to just explain the facts that make that opinion wrong ?||
My first local Democratic Committee Monthly Meeting 2017 Thurs Feb 2nd 7pm
I met a couple of women ( probably in their 50's - 60's ) whilst waiting outside for the key carrier to open the door to the meeting hall. In so many words we exchanged that it was our first meeting and how much we wanted to DO SOMETHING.
We piled in to a room where every chair was eventually occupied and some of the audience were left standing. A packed room full of new faces (they said). Full of Women's Marchers and motivated Action Seekers , no doubt, attending their first ever Democratic Party Meeting.
The 4 Leaders sat at a table in front of us. The meeting started with some technicalities to do with the Minutes of previous meetings that needed to be seconded by Members. It seemed to be a somewhat pedantic exercise.
The leader (who was a veteran Democrat and ex-Union Leader , ex-City Councilor and had almost been a County Supervisor,) welcomed us and gave a good overview of ways of participating in the organization. This included the difference between having a vote and not. Something to do with being an ASSOCIATE or an AGENT. There were various Projects one could be a part of ( I think they were called) the one that struck my attention was on "Issues ... " ( I can't remember the rest. )
There were several SUB-COMMITTEES one could join. I can't remember any of these but I hope the website ( which was down from having been hacked) will list everything that I should have taken notes on.
