The holidays are winnowing numbers as are the nationwide protests that some folks from here are lucky enough to be able to attend.
It was sparse attendance Friday night. Mostly regulars, checking in with the “fam” we’ve become, holding a sign for an hour or two and then leaving. We hollered “hey” to the National Guards still stationed here. Made jokes about how the 10 of might very well be those “hard core terrorists” they always seem to be looking for here. We aren’t, at least not on purpose. We’re just gumming up the wheels for them, for now, until our outfliers get back to town.
Have many of you received invites to an anti-racist organizer training? Did you or are you planning on going? I’d love you hear your reactions in the comments.
