In the most recent Sierra Club magazine we read a respected Harvard prof's proposal that humanity set aside half of earth as habitat for everybody but humans. It's called the 50/50 plan. It's about forestalling extinction of loads of species.

How does this swan song mesh with a call for a $15/hour minimum wage, and burnishing the middle class with Bernie ideals, and saving social security, and doing something for Black Lives Matter?

You're welcome to join The Commons SF in a snappy round-robin response to this question,

"What does 'This land is your land, this land is my land' mean to you?

We of The Commons SF believe decisively addressing that question will unite small business folk, environmentalists, identity liberationists, union advocates, even housing rights defenders, heck even the First Nations, in short, the lot of us.

If you want to jump-start the unification of the "resistance to Trump movement," this meeting is for you. Thus far San Francisco Vision, Black Lives Matter, SEIU, the building trades, Sanctuary City, ISO, and Glide Memorial Church haven't found a distributor (car analogy) that unifies the action of the resistance's 240 cylinder engine.

We think responding hugely to Woody Guthrie's refrain, "This land is your land" is key to finding the unifying question for all of us.
