Today I participated in a Twitter Storm from Gaza #IseeGaza #UnlockGaza
Yesterday I was arrested outside Senator Murkowski’s office in the Hart Senate Office Building in DC with an estimated 40-50 others protesting #StopTrumpCare.
The day before I wrote postcards to my two US Senators from New Mexico.
The National Defense Authorization Act (H.R. 2810) has passed the House, with an additional $3.8 Billion for Israel plus $705 million for US-Israel missile defense cooperation, a $558 million increase above the President’s request.
I urge you to submit an amendment to delete the $3.8 Billion and the $705 Million from the NDAA. Peace and security are not enhanced with these expenditures.
Tomorrow? I’m not sure what action I’ll be taking but I know I will do something.
After walking out of the Capitol Police detention facility yesterday, a filmmaker making a documentary about the #Resistance asked me why I do these actions.
I spoke about the need to resist being lulled into complacency and treating current events as normal — they are not.
I spoke about the horrific consequences if the GOP’s healthcare bill is passed and about ignoring climate change.
I spoke about how inaction leads to depression, at least for me. Action is hope.
Finally, I said the most important thing. I do this action for my family, my three sons and granddaughter. It’s their future that is on the line now.
