The Russian Investigation is Getting Very Hot for Trump
 
If Mueller, the special prosecutor for the Russian Investigation is fired, Indivisible Broward Resist is suggesting the following:
 
“We and many other groups are prepared to meet in peaceful protest in case of a constitutional crisis such as the firing of Mueller.   
 
If Mueller is fired prior to 2pm we will meet at the U.S. Federal Courthouse  at 5pm.  If fired at 2pm, or after, we will meet at the courthouse at noon the next day.”
 
U.S. Federal Courthouse 
299 E. Broward Blvd.
Ft. Lauderdale 33301
 
B. Confirmation of Supreme Court Judge 
On Sept. 4, the Republican Senate has set the date for confirmation hearings on Judge Brett Kavanaugh nomination for a lifelong appointment to the Supreme CourtIn Brett Kavanaugh, Donald Trump chose a nominee who not only has extremist, ultra-conservative legal views on a range of issues, but who has repeatedly argued that the Supreme Court should put the president above the law. Donald Trump is at the center of a criminal investigation, and he should not be allowed to pick his own judge and jury.
Kavanaugh would rule against reproductive freedom, health care, the environment, voting rights, workers’ rights, LGBTQ rights, and immigrant rights for generations.

SUNDAY, August 12,  AT 10 AM TO 11 AM  – Hosted by Rebekka Lee,  Annie Casais-Montenegro and Samantha Gentry   We need photographers and media attention
 
 

On Sunday August 12, at 10am, we want you to join us as we peacefully come together as one. By locking hands we will show that we do not, and will not, stand for our beautiful beaches, wildlife, homes and livelihoods to continuously be destroyed and impacted by the water released from Lake Okeechobee.

We will lock hands at 10:15, for 15 minutes, all across the beaches of this beautiful state- East Coast and Gulf Coast; North to South. At the end we will all raise our arms up to the sky, hand in hand, to show love to our wildlife, water, beaches, Mother Nature and one another. Join us in our peaceful movement. Can you give 15 minutes of your time to make an impact? Those willing, I will have garbage bags with me, if you would also like to help with some beach cleanup afterward

VI. Save the Date Sunday, Aug 26 – Sept 4
This could be one of the most significant events this summer – the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court has just been scheduled for Sept. 4. Kavanaugh would rule against reproductive freedom, health care, the environment, voting rights, workers’ rights, LGBTQ rights, and immigrant rights for generations. Democratic senators including Sen. Nelson have asked for more information and this event may not occur on August 26, it might occur on Sept 4 or even Labor Day. It may be a last minute event. President Trump who has appointed the most corrupt administration in our history and is under a cloud of suspicion for being a traitor should not appoint a supreme court judge.

March for Our Lives

WONDER WOMEN RISE RALLY MARCH 3, 11 AM TO 3 PM, at POMPANO BEACH AMPHITHEATER

First, we want to thank you for your support of the two demonstrations that took place January 20 and 21. The Impeachment March to Mar-a-lago was the largest in West Palm Beach History. The Florida Women’s March emphasized power to the polls and the one year anniversary of the Women’s March. Last year, you made South Florida Women’s Rally the largest demonstration in Miami history. We are changing the U.S. culture from “Trump” culture. We need you to make it happen.

We want to inform you of another demonstration Saturday, March 3 from 11 AM to 3 PM at Pompano Beach Amphitheater, 1806 NE 6 ST., POMPANO 33060. This demonstration has limited seating and has developed from the “ME TOO#” movement. Mission: With so many sexual assault and harassment survivors finally stepping forward and finding their voices, we feel that it is the appropriate time to host another event that will empower our community. Last year, we organized and executed the Women’s Rally in South Florida so that the South Florida community could stand in solidarity with the March in Washington. 25,000 South Floridians came to the South Florida rally, making it the largest sister event in the state! The Wonder Women RISE! event is being held so that we can learn how to find our inner Wonder Woman! The agenda will include what got us to this tipping point historically, what we can do when confronted with abusive and harassing situations, how to deescalate these situations, and how to best cope after the fact. We also will address where we go from here. This is our day to RISE and empower each other by embracing our beauty, compassion, intelligence, sexuality, and STRENGTH!

We hope our rally is the first step towards unifying our communities, forging new relationships, and creating change from the bottom up. Speakers who are national experts in different fields will be addressing what actions can be taken and empowerment and inspiration will be created by poets and musicians gracing our stage. We will host our event at the Pompano Beach Amphitheater on March 3rd to commemorate both International Woman’s Day, March 8th and the month of March being Woman’s History Month.

Since the seating is limited, it is important that you Go to Eventbrite to register https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wonder-women-rise-tickets-40760326233.

WHAT YOU CAN DO NOW TO SAVE AMERICAN DEMOCRACY – “POWER TO THE POLLS”

  1. REQUEST AN ABSENTEE-MAIL BALLOT:  Go to your local Supervisor of Election web site listed below. The voting ballot for the 2018 election is expected to be 8 to 9 PAGES long. This will make longer voting lines on a complicated ballot (exactly what Trump wants – discourage voters). Advantages of mail ballot:  You get to vote in the comfort of your home. You can go on line and see that your ballot did count. You have time to look over the amendments on the ballot. And if you really want to stand in line, you can trade the absentee ballot for a voting day ballot.
