Anacortes Weekly Protest Needs Your Support! EVERY SUN, Noon to 1 pm, 12th & Commercial
August 30 - November 1
The Anacortes protest that occurs every Sunday at noon is getting over-run by Trump protestors. They are asking for our help! Please consider joining them this Sunday, August 30, at noon!
Please share far and wide and consider joining the progressive protestors for a show of support!
You know that every Sunday, on the four corners of 12th and Commercial, people gather to protest or simply show their political positions. Last Sunday, the TRUMP corner was FULL of people, FLAGS and NOISE!!!!
There were banners out the kazoo, “decent” looking Anacortes folks carrying quasi- articulate signs; there was loud music blaring, recordings of political ads kept playing in a loop, and a man was screaming drivel on a microphone. There was also a life-sized poster of Trump mounted on wood.
There were not so many people in the progressive side.
Not sure if this Trumpian show of force is a result of (a) the picketing at the Post Office the previous day, or (b) excitement over the Republican convention this week, or (c) mobilization because the polls show Biden ahead. WHATEVER the Reason, those Republican supporters were in full force yesterday. # (c) is a scary prospect.
WE SHOULD ALL SHOW UP ON SUNDAY, 12-1pm.
The time for doing nothing is so well past. We should be wary of the polls that say Biden is 8-12 points ahead of Trump in various states because this could be a Hillary déjà vu.
PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD AROUND TO YOUR FRIENDS and LET US ALL SHOW UP ON SUNDAY!
