Stop the War on Gaza!

On August 5, members of our Stop the Wars committee joined member group ANSWER Coaltion-SF in a demonstration in front of the Federal Building in downtown San Francisco to protest Representative Nancy Pelosi for her role in urging other congress members to send more of our tax dollars and weapons to help Israel in its continued bombardment of Gaza.  This action by Represntative Pelosi was shameful and yet another show of support by this administration of Israel’s illegal and massive destruction of Gaza and the killing of over 1,000 innocent civilians.

Our Stop the Wars Committee Joins ANSWER Coalition’s Protest: AGAIN, Out of Iraq!

On Saturday, June 21, we joined our member ANSWER Coalition’s rally and march through downtown San Francisco’s shopping district from Market Street, up Powell and around Union Square to say:

No More War in Iraq!   Money for Jobs, Health and Education! Not for War and Devastation! and other chants against this latest effort to involve us in yet another conflict in Iraq.   People applauded us along the way.

Here are a few photos from that event:

Civil Liberties Committee: We Visit and Rally at Senator Feinstein’s Office

On June 5, members of our CLC (Civil Liberties Committee) visited with Senator Feinstein’s office staff to request that the Senator support amendments to strengthen the Senate version of the “Freedom Act.”

We held a press conference and ABC-7 TV, KPFA, KQED radio covered our rally where speakers reported on this event, and Mike Rufo performed his “They Can’t Hide Their Spying Eyes” satirical song (to the Eagles “You Can’t Hide Your Lying Eyes” tune).  Although the almost hour-long meeting with the Senator’s staffers went well, Senator Feinstein has put out a statement saying that she is looking to strengthen surveillance, so she’s not doing the right thing to protect our rights under the Constitution.

Here are photos from this event:
