THE TIME HAS COME.
Dear Fellow Bay Area Resisters:
Our president has no regard for the law or democracy of this land. The recent offer to pardon Border Patrol agents for breaking national law clearly demonstrates that he believes he's the only one in charge, a dictator. The Treasury's fight to hand over the president's taxes is a smack in the face to the sacred checks and balances. The AG's soft report and stall on releasing the full findings of the Special Counsel's office reeks of cover-up and obstruction. The president's refusal to fully staff his cabinet creates a top heavy administration with very little public accountability.
We declare that each of these oversteps are in themselves dangerous to our democracy, but taken together, they reveal a clear movement toward authoritarianism and we will vigorously demonstrate against that reach while calling for full restoration of our government as our forefathers intended.
We call upon the third most powerful office holder in our nation to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump for his blatant treasonous actions and words, for his utter disregard of checks an balances, for his contempt for the rule of law. This is not a person who represents democracy and equality, this is a person who is gutting all that is good and right within our society for selfish gains and he should be stopped. Now.
Join us as we PEACEFULLY petition Speaker Pelosi's office to begin impeachment proceedings. Out of many voices, we shall be one, demanding justice for our nation.
We will go up to Pelosi’s office at approx. 5:15 PM to present her rep. with a letter urging her to initiate impeachment proceedings against Trump, then return to the sidewalk for more protesting. Please bring signs & banners. Who knows, there might even be tacos & music (we’re working on it). Please arrive early to allow for traffic (it is a weekday) & parking (there are several parking lots/garages within a few blocks of her office).
And thank you for your support.
