Band of Rebels Picnic June 29, 2015 @ 4:30 pm.
Since we stopped holding Monday demos most of us have been working on a variety of campaigns. The picnic will give us
- a chance to renew our friendships,
- to hear seven or eight short (3 minute) presentations on a number of issues,
- and to clarify the future of Band of Rebels activity.
From our beginning in the spring of 2011 we have worked for “economic justice and true democracy.” Among other issues, we focused on the controlling power of large financial institutions and thus spent many days in front of bank branch offices. We were in front of the Federal Building on State Street defending Social Security, Medicare and Medicare for All (single-payer health care). Therefore, the role of corporate power and economic injustice is at the center of our concerns what ever the particular issue we address.
Presenters will provide a one page information sheet about an issue and explain how we, as individuals, and as the Band of Rebels can support or join particular campaigns or actions.
This will be potluck, but Email about any dietary restrictions you have so we can make sure that there is food for all.
