October 26 Stop Watching Us Protest in DC: Hop On The Bus

Are you sick and tired of the U.S. military (that’s what the NSA is) blasting through the constitution to monitor, search through and seize your private communications over internet, phone and mail? You can do something about it this Saturday October 26, when people who are upset just like you are gathering for a Rally [...]

Gut Check: Are the Organizations Behind the October 26 Anti-Surveillance March in DC Promoting It?

In case you haven’t heard, a big protest march in Washington DC is being planned for October 26, 2013. The demand: for the U.S. government to stop its massive warrantless surveillance programs that spy on the activities of hundreds of millions of innocent, law-abiding people. If you’re interested, come on down to DC for a [...]

Wildly Inventive, Unsettlingly Unusual NSA Mix Tape Bike Ride in Washington DC July 4 2013

We Act Radio in Washington DC is throwing aside the once-subversive, now-staid “hey hey, ho ho” mode of protest, replacing it with a NSA Mix Tape Bike Ride that is framed in jarring terms:

Coastline of United States Sharply Altered in Post-Election Cataclysm

The morning after the 2012 elections saw a starkly changed American landscape, changed in a very literal sense as large sections of the North American landmass collapsed into the ocean.

As the dawn rose over the United States of America, it quickly became apparent that the entire states of Maine (where voters approved same-sex marriage [...]

Americans Elect Spends another $90,000, sending mail from DC to swing Maine Senate Race

“The Delegates — and the rest of the American people — are the true boss of Americans Elect.” — Americans Elect, “About,” April 2011

“We will never promote any candidate of our own — and the ultimate winner is decided only by the American voters.” — Americans Elect, “About,” July 2011

Watching Equality of Marriage Rights In The 2012 Election

It would be nice if the initiative in Minnesota were voted down, and the other initiatives were approved, but such a result would not be ideal. The legal rights of American citizens shouldn’t be approved or discarded by voters. They’re constitutionally established, not a matter for popular referenda. [...]

Do Cosponsors of the June 24 DC March Against Torture Actually Promote the Event?

A national march in Washington DC against Torture on June 24 2012 is said to be cosponsored by 28 social movement organizations. Cosponsorship denotes support, and the very least an organization could do to support an event is to promote it. Perhaps the simplest, lowest-cost way for a social movement organization to support this DC [...]

No Labels Fights to Stop the Fighting

No Labels, May 18 2012: “The fight to solve our country’s problems goes on — that’s why you should support #NoLabels”.

No Labels, May 19 2012: “Listen up #Washington: Stop fighting. Start fixing! Plz RT if you agree.”

And yes, in case you were wondering: No Labels’ headquarters is in Washington, DC.

Stop the Frack Attack Rally against Fracking July 28 in Washington, DC

If you say enough with the earthquakes (yes, earthquakes), enough with the spills, enough with the carcinogenic drinking water, enough with plans for drill rigs on campus, enough with cozy insiderism going all the way up to the Obama administration, rally July 28 in Washington, DC.

When people stand up, declare they’ve had enough and [...]
