Join this nationwide effort with other Internet users outraged by top Verizon lawyer-turned-FCC-Chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to gut net neutrality, one week before an expected vote at the FCC.
We will make it clear to members of Congress that the time is now to stand for net neutrality, not Verizon’s bottom line.
PLEASE remember, this event is about protesting actions of Verizon executives, lobbyists and their supporters in Washington, NOT the employees at these stores.
Note that this is strictly a peaceful protest Continue reading “CANCELLED DUE TO THE FIRES! Rally to Protect Net Neutrality!”

The #TrumpTaxScam is a DISASTER-of-a-giveaway-to-fat-cat-Republican-donors (surprise, surprise). It adds $1.5 trillion to the deficit — which will force deep cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security down the road — all to give huge tax cuts to the wealthy, corporations — and to Donald Trump himself.
We can, and must, kill this bill with constituent power. The tax fight and the healthcare fight are the SAME FIGHT. And, just like with healthcare, we can defeat it with nationwide constituent power. On our own home turf!
See you there!

US Homeland Security Will Start Collecting Social Media Info on All Immigrants October 18th. Just say “NO”!
“We see this as part of a larger process of high-tech surveillance of immigrants and more and more people being subjected to social media screening,” Schwartz told BuzzFeed News. “There’s a growing trend at the Department of Homeland Security to be snooping on the social media of immigrants and foreigners and we think it’s an invasion of privacy and deters freedom of speech.” (Adam Schwartz, an attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation)
This would also affect all US citizens who communicate with immigrants, Schwartz said, who could self-censor out of fear that information they exchange with someone overseas could be misconstrued and used against them.

In the event of Trump firing special counsel, Robert Mueller, Venturans are prepared to hold a FLASH MOB PROTEST for the day when this move occurs.
(Co-sponsored by GrassrootsVentura and Indivisible Ventura. Similar events are being planned throughout the nation.)
Clearly the firing of Mueller would be an attempt to quash the investigation of Trump and his campaign. This would make the firing an obstruction of justice, an impeachable offense, and probably a partial admission of guilt by POTUS.
Protestors will thus be standing up for American Justice, the Constitution’s systems of checks and balances, and calling for the impeachment of DJT.
As soon as such news breaks, Rapid Resistance Protestors will begin to assemble at the corner of Telephone & Victoria, by the Ventura County Government Center. Participants should start getting their signs made now.
No specific date can be posted here at this time. However, as soon as the news of the firing is made public, we must be ready to assemble beginning at 3:00 PM.
We will update Facebook, Twitter, and will attempt to reach all of you as soon as possible the day the news is released. Stand at READY RESISTANCE TEAM! Check your text messages and emails frequently for Mueller updates and to hear our call to action. Send your phone number or email to: email@example.com
Participants should wear

On Saturday, June 3, both Santa Barbara and Los Angeles will be holding a March for Truth. The goals are simple and bipartisan (at least, theoretically):
- Establish a fully funded, non-partisan independent commission;
- As much information as possible should be made public as soon as possible;
- Congress should require Donald Trump to release his tax returns to clarify his business interests and obligations to any foreign entity;
- If crimes were committed or if collusion is discovered, they must be prosecuted.
Those are goals we can all get behind!

“I have never canvassed before, but I will f—ing crawl door to door to make sure you lose.” A mild-mannered 60-year-old in Florida, to her Republican representative
Yep, the GOP has activated us, that’s for sure.
People across the country are refusing to stay silent. You can use Indivisible’s special guide to demand your member of Congress takes action, and then on June 3, you can join the March for Truth.
Click on every one of these amazing links! Citizens are stepping up and doing their jobs! Speaking out at town halls. Special shoutout to the New Jerseyans who confronted Rep. Tom MacArthur, the Congressman behind the key amendment that allowed Trumpcare to pass, for more than four hours and showed us all how it’s done. Crowds also confronted Paul Ryan!
Indivisible Ventura showed up to support our sister districts for die-ins to express our anger about Congressmen’s votes to repeal ObamaCare. Read news items here, here, here, and here.
Betsy DeVos got the respect she deserves…
LOVE THIS. Democrats are showing up at Republican Town Halls! Democratic legislators taking town halls for cowardly GOP members. “Hey, listen, I have a question for you,” he said. “I’m Representative Sean Patrick Maloney. Where the heck is your congressman?”
Despite Trump’s attempt to end the investigation into his ties with Russia, the Senate Intelligence Committee invited Comey to testify next week and subpoenaed Michael Flynn. (Federal prosecutors also issued subpoenas to Flynn’s associates.) Meanwhile, Democrats slowed Senate activity to demand the appointment of a special prosecutor, and the media called out Trump’s “grotesque abuse of power.” A handful of Republicans also expressed concern. KEEP UP THE PRESSURE – MAKE MORE PHONE CALLS TO APPOINT A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR HERE.
Trump’s tax’s haven’t been forgotten… keep hammering away. We DEMAND Continue reading “Your Weekly Dose of Sanity-saving Good News! This is What Democracy Looks Like!”
