Click here for more info & to get involved ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- By signing this, I pledge to: Wear Black on Thursday March 1, At work, at school, on the street:  Gather and hold 11 minutes of silence for all eleven million undocumented immigrants. These are our sisters and brothers!  Take pictures and spread them on social media using: #ImmigrantsStayTrumpPenceMustGo! Join with Refuse Fascism and gatherings in Atlanta, Cleveland, Chicago, Honolulu, Houston, LA, Orange County, Philly, Seattle, San Francisco, Tuscon; along with activist Maru Mora-Villalpando, Mayor Ted Terry of Clarkston GA, Yosanda Lonewolf Standing Rock activist, Kathy Najimy, Chuck D, artist Joseph Guay, people in the suburbs; Chicagoland network to Stop Fascism, Students at: Fullerton University, University of Washington, University of Houston, UCLA and Georgia State; No BS Media, Ernestine Hemming of First AME Church in spreading  the word and taking action this day.  Growing list of events and gathering can be found at the bottom of this page.  Stand against Trump’s comprehensive and white supremacist attacks on immigrants and immigration. Stand with DACA youth, with TPS recipients, with all those in detention right now. Stand with those whose families have already been torn apart and those who live each day with that fear. Trump's “Wall” is a potent symbol and instrument of terror that concentrates the shattering of old norms and cementing Trump’s new order of: America First…Make America "Great" (meaning: White) Again.” This all-around assault on immigrants is a horror.  It is also the linchpin and battering ram of the whole fascist program being hammered into place by the Trump/Pence Regime. Fascism is a qualitative change in how society is governed.  Fascism foments and relies on xenophobic nationalism, racism, misogyny, and the aggressive re-institution of oppressive “traditional values.”  Once in power, fascism essentially eliminates traditional democratic rights. This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!   AtlantaThursday March 1 Vigil & Gathering# ImmigrantsStayTrumpPenceMustGo6:00 pm WEAR BLACK“Border Wall” installation by Joseph Guay748 10th Street NW (Howell Mill & 10th Street, NW) Atlanta, GA 30318Facebook Event 678 962 ChicagoThursday March 1 Rally# ImmigrantsStayTrumpPenceMustGo11:00 am 190 N.

                             PETITION FOR REMOVAL FROM OFFICE           In the matter of Representative FRELINGHUYSEN, 11th Congressional District, New Jersey:             Saily Avelenda, an employee at the Lakeland Bank (NJ) led protests against FRELINGHUYSEN about lack of Town Hall meetings, health care and other Trump agenda issues. A handwritten note from FRELINGHUYSEN resulted in  her having to resign her job. On March21, 2017, FRELINGHUYSEN wrote a letter to a Mr. Joseph O'Dowd, a board member of the Lakeland Bank. In this letter was an appeal for money. FRELINGHUYSEN also complained about attacks from "organized forces." In a handwritten note at the bottom of his letter FRELINGHUYSEN stated "one of the ringleaders works in your bank".           Actions such as FRELINGHUYSEN's   can have a chilling effect on American citizens' exercise of their First Amendment right to free speech.           The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.   Whereas:  The U.S. Constitution, Article VI, clause 3 states: “The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.” Therefore:           Representative Frelinghausen, by your action to punish an American citizen for the exercise of her Constitutionally granted First Amendment rights, you have violated your oath of office to support the Constitution of the United States.           We the undersigned demand your immediate resignation of your office.

Petition to Nampa School District

Free Colby

Earlier today (February 3rd, 2017), Colby sent a picture to a select group of his friends, amounting to 12 people total. The picture in question was of an unrecognizable adult male, wearing jeans, a sweater, and a black beanie, carrying what appeared to be an assault rifle or AR-15 into the Columbia High School cafeteria. Colby had captioned the photo "We boutta die". This picture raised concern among several of the people it was sent to, one who, in turn, informed their teacher. It was inadvertently let slip that Colby was the one who took the photo, and he was promptly called down to the security office. The Nampa School District Facebook page soon released a statement saying that the person carrying the weapon was the CHS Resource Officer, Officer Workman, and that the gun in question was in fact a fake, used only for demonstration purposes. However, as you can see from the picture, it was not immediately apparent that the individual carrying the gun was in any way affiliated with CHS. Additionally, from the distance the photo was taken, there were no visible markings to suggest that the gun was not operational. In response to his actions, the school suspended Colby for 3 days, relieved him from his duties as a student PC technician, threatened to remove him from the school robotics team, and told him there might be additional criminal charges pressed against him. There is an argument to be made that the caption Colby put on the picture was inappropriate, as was his overall handling of the situation. However, I, and many others, do not feel that it warrants anywhere near the punishment Colby has received. In fact, the real issue here is that an adult male wearing nondescript clothing walked into a school openly carrying what appeared to be an operational weapon. If SRO Workman had been wearing his uniform, or if the weapon had been concealed in a case of some sort, this entire ordeal could have been avoided. However, as it stands, neither of those criteria were met, and to an onlooker such as Colby, who as a quality, rule following student, was not familiar with Officer Workman, it seemed as though a random person was entering his school with a gun. For bringing this information to others, Colby was suspended, among many other things. The way Columbia High School and Nampa School District have handled this situation has been unprofessional at best, and should never have happened in the first place.   Furthermore, they cited "disruption of education" as grounds for Colby's suspension. There was little outcry over this photo - perhaps some scares within classes, but nothing too widespread. Most people who saw the photo were told it was the SRO. The school did nothing to remedy any supposed panic - the only statement regarding the incident was in the form of a Facebook post. No announcements over intercom, no nothing. They say that Colby disrupted education and scared everyone, but if it wasn't enough for them to come on and say "everything is fine" then it is not enough to press these charges against him.
