Nationwide protests called by APWU and NACL in response to Trump's attack on the US postal system.

Trump's removal of sorting machines and mail boxes in order to delegitimize an election he fears loosing, goes far beyond his usual "flouting of norms". It is an attack on the functioning of the Republic.
Postal workers understand this. Through their APWU and NACL unions, they have organized nationwide rallies in protest. On Tues Aug. 25, San Francisco's postal workers rallied at noon next to the Market Street, Fox Plaza post office.
Signs demanded the restoration of service and funding cuts. Understanding the connection, many carried sign that read "Save Our Democracy, Protect USPS & Voting."
A solution suggested by one sign read "Return '45' to sender."
