Organizer/AuthorSandy Sanders
Come help us hang and hold (2) 40ft. long 2-sided banners (TAX THE RICH! and GENERAL STRIKE!) over the 880 freeway at rush hour this Friday. Live music and whatever else you want to bring. Code Pinkers and others have been doing this each Friday for several Fridays and need folks to come out and help us. CHP have been harassing us and demanding we physically hold the banners up. We have been getting tremendous response from drivers honking in support. We are trying to bring back the idea of taxing the rich and the corporate to restore our society. Our leaders, the elites, seem fixated on privatizing our democracy and making us pay for their silver spoon luxury. I don't know about you, but we've had enough and we're not taking it any more! Come join us for rebellion and fun on the bridge...let's help stimulate the People to rise up and take our democracy back!

TAX THE RICH! TAX CORPORATIONS! END THE WARS AND RESTORE DEMOCRACY!
