POG is calling for a rally and march on Nov 3rd to push for systemic change in our political system, peace abroad, and social justice at home.
Below is info on POG (Pittsburgh Organizing Groups) post election day action. To get involved you can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org
Nov 3: Post-election Rally and March.
Because our dreams will never fit in their ballot boxes!
Join us for a rally and march for real change in our political system, an end to war and occupation abroad, and social justice at home. Gather at 5:30pm at SEI (Fifth Ave - half way between Craig and Bellefield in Oakland).
The Beyond Voting Campaign is calling for our election year debate to expand beyond Democrats versus Republicans to the larger issue of whether the U.S. will be a Democracy or an Empire. We will be helping communities mobilize from the ballot boxes on November 2nd to the streets on November 3rd with a national campaign of mass non-cooperation if Bush is elected, if the elections are canceled, or if there is overt election fraud again. No matter who wins, we will be uniting to open up a new political space to define democracy as grassroots and participatory.
If we want to live in a real democracy voting at the ballot box is not enough! We have to vote with our feet, our hands, our voices and our imaginations every day of the year. What can you organize in your community?[
