#SOSAmerica2019 NYC Kickoff
Start: Wednesday, August 21, 2019• 5:30 PM
#SOSAMERICA2019 NYC ACTION
On Wednesday, August 21st, SOSAmerica2019 will launch its first official event in New York City, NY. We will gather in Madison Square Park at 5:30 p.m., where we will have a brief speech, followed by a direct action.
AS WE LAUNCH, WE WILL BE MAKING ONE THING VERY CLEAR:
OUR GOAL IS SUSTAINED, DIRECT ACTIONS
THAT SNOWBALL INTO MASSIVE PROTESTS.
When we say “sustained, direct actions”, we are looking to the examples of Puerto Rico, Hong Kong, and others. The incredible protesters in these places did not occupy specific spaces for long periods of time. Instead, they turned out in the streets again and again and again, each time in large numbers. After a massive protest they went home, regrouped, chose their next location, and took to the streets again. These large-scale, sustained actions applied continuous pressure on their governments as the people demanded change. In the case of Puerto Rico, these actions have led to the resignation of their governor.
- the criminal president of the United States and his administration step down,
- we secure voting in our 2020 election,
- we end the dehumanization and mistreatment of immigrants immediately.
Join us on the 21st to make it clear that we, the ordinary people of the United States of America, will no longer tolerate the current state of affairs, and we the people will be taking our grievances into the streets to defend our Democracy.
COME JOIN YOUR VOICE TO OURS.
TOGETHER, WE ARE THE RESISTANCE UNITED.
