--Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
--Avoid touching surfaces.
--Minimize contact by multiple people with commonly used surfaces like water bottles, bullhorns, handrails, and barricades
--Minimize yelling and singing. Make noise with drums, tambourines.
--If you use a megaphone, it should be thoroughly sanitized between different speakers

If you have the following symptoms, please DO NOT participate in person. Even if you test negative for COVID-19 but have these symptoms, please refrain from in-person actions:

§Mask Up, Step Out. Be Safe, Not Silent. Trump/Pence Must Go!

We should not foreclose the possibility that Trump will “win,” by hook or crook, whether by voter suppression, intimidation, manipulation, or by the “normal” workings of October “surprises” and the electoral college.

We are at a “stop everything” moment in history. September 5 needs to be a significant outpouring inspiring 60 days of struggle. If every attempt by the regime to subvert the election, to further repress protest, to implement new fascist measures is met with growing numbers demanding Trump/Pence OUT NOW! we could force a different political equation going into the election, constraining Trump’s ability to easily postpone or subvert the election.

If masses of people are already in the streets over the 60 days running up to the election and then the regime attempts to discount, challenge, or dismiss the results, we would be a people organized and mobilized to act in defiance that this not go down. And, if we launch this struggle and increasingly tap into and mobilize the deeply held desire of millions to see the ouster of the fascist Trump/Pence regime, no one can say how far this can go or how fast.
