Nobody is Above the Law – Be Ready! Update 12/21

Any firing that occurs between December 23 and December 26 would trigger the protest events on December 27.

Flash Mob Protest — Nobody is Above the Law

Join MoveOn and your local resisters in action if the unthinkable happens.

This is an nation-wide event planned as a rapid response protest in the event that Donald Trump fires special counsel Robert Mueller. Please note that the listed date is a placeholder and will be updated to be within 24 hours of the firing, should it occur.

Update from our Ventura rally organizer.

Dear Grassroots & Democratic Friends,

There is widespread concern that Robert Mueller will be fired — an attempt by Trump to stop the investigation into his ties to Russian oligarchs, his financial entanglements, and conspiracy to help a foreign entity affect our democratic election.

We have organized a Rapid Response Flash protest that will occur in coordination with the national host of the event, MoveOn. (If you haven’t sign up yet, RSVP here. Too far away, check out local rallies here.) It is expected that Trump will fire chief investigator, Mueller, during the upcoming Christmas Recess when members of the House and Senate will not be in Washington, DC to obstruct Trump’s desire to be rid of the legal investigation.

Therefore, we must stand ready to join together in protest. So many have signed up to attend, that it would be impossible for me to call each of you on the day that the firing occurs.  To get a notification of the day and time of our assembly,  you will need to to enroll to receive a text message by:

1. Install the app for iPhone (http://apple.co/2o8cQAG) or Android (http://bit.ly/2neIpnw)
2. Press ‘Create New Account‘ to sign up
3. Enter the Indivisible Ventura invite code: 340-050-206

Secondly, if you cannot receive texts, I will notify you at the same email address you have used to sign-up with GrassrootsVentura. (See attachment for full details.)
In either case, you will need to watch your email and texts closely to receive the notification to meet at the Government Center.

MoveOn, the national host of this event, has notified me of an adjustment to our holdiay season plan as follows:
Any firing that occurs between December 23 and December 26 would trigger the protest events on December 27.

If the firing happens on December 31 or January 1 we will proceed unchanged, with the original plan to host events at 5 p.m. local time if Mueller is fired before 2 p.m., or at noon the next day if a firing occurs after 2 p.m.


If the firing does not take place before New Year’s Day we will enter a placeholder date of December 2020, and continue to organize over the whole of Trump’s term in office. We already are anticipating over 300-400 people.
 
Thank you all for standing up to the plate. The people at the true power! Be of good cheer — we shall overcome.

Attached you will find a flyer you can print to share or to keep as a reminder that we will not stand by idly should Trump blatantly obstruct justice by firing Mueller.  We expect our demonstration to very large, but we need every person to come! Get your signs ready just in case the firing happens next week.

Your servant,

Taffy Walker, Organizer, GrassrootsVentura

Once you sign up, make sure to invite friends to join you at the event!

Note: VERY IMPORTANT! If you choose to attend an event, you agree to engage in nonviolent, peaceful action, to act lawfully, and to strive to de-escalate any potential confrontations with those who may disagree with our values.
