Important Gray Panther and Other Events
Sat, Dec 16, 12 Noon,  March FOR Sanctuary Cities (Counter-demonstration to alt-right March Against Sanctuary Cities).   Supported by over two dozen community groups. Assemble, Union Square opposite Westin St. Francis, 12 Noon.  Begin march 1 PM. Finish march at Civic Center Plaza 3 PM.   Facebook page.

This week:  Stop the Tax Scam, a plan of $1.5 Trillion in tax breaks for corporations and the super-rich, to be financed by gutting Medicare, Medicaid/Medi-Cal, and Social Security, and taking away their guaranteed benefits.  Medicare would become cut-rate private insurance. Medicaid/Medi-Cal would be cut and frozen no matter what happens.  Social Security would become individual stock market accounts where you could lose everything.

Wed, Dec 20, 10 AM,   Statewide Day of Action, Clean DREAM Act Now!   Congressional and Senate Democrats have abandoned the immigrant community by not shutting down the government if no Clean DREAM Act bill is included in the House spending bill being negotiated.   Democrats are deliberately doing the least amount possible to remove DACA youth from harm’s way along with the immigrant community at large.   Assemble at Feinstein's office, corner of Post, Market, and Montgomery.  Sponsored by Bay Resistance and others. See Facebook page for event.
Tues, Jan 9.  SB-562 Sacramento Day of Action.    January 9th, 2018 is the first meeting of the Calif Assembly Health Committee, which would be hearing and improving SB 562, California’s single-payer healthcare bill, if Assembly Speaker Rendon were not refusing to let the bill be heard, to save himself, the Governor, and business Democrats from having to commit on the bill, one way or the other. As the corporate austerity-hawks in DC move toward Tax-Scam, we need this more than ever.     Come to Sacramento Tues, January 9, and hit all 80 Assembly members demanding SB 562 be heard by the Health Committee! Buses from SF & Richmond; Oakland & Berkeley; San Jose & Walnut Creek; Fresno & Modesto & Stockton See link to schedule below. (It’s early! Get your coffeepot ready the night before.
