Join an important gathering of Bay Area activists to plan a 2010 campaign of direct action for a California single payer health care system. We will map out a campaign of actions that will build on each other and build the movement. Some possibilities: * coordinated actions at insurance companies, the main obstacle to creating a universal health care system * several weeks of continuous actions at Schwarzenegger's office, after SB 810 (the California Universal Health Care bill) passes the legislature.� In previous years, Schwarzenegger has vetoed single payer, but we can make it politically costly for him. * targeting the candidates for governor (none of whom support single payer) during the campaign -- especially Jerry Brown * public free clinics in connection with any of the above * die-ins and street theater, which we used very effectively in our previous actions at Blue Shield and the Ferry Building * YOUR IDEAS
