WILL FEDERAL LEGISLATION PROTECT OUR ELECTIONS?

 
As Trump Republicans assault the right to vote with more than 400 bills pushed into state legislatures, we track the possibilities of the FOR THE PEOPLE ACT and the JOHN LEWIS ACT.
 
The twin attempts to use federal legal powers to protect our citizens’ ability to exercise the franchise face serious obstacles.  JOEL SEGAL and other powerful experts give us the news on what’s happening.
 
We also discuss next week’s NATIONAL JUSTICE ROUNDTABLE to take place at 1-5pm eastern time, Monday, August 30, will cover the issues of DC Statehood, Election Protection, Saving the Earth & Social Justice/Ending Poverty & Homelessness.
 
This huge gathering of progressive forces can be accessed this coming Monday via www.electionprotection2024.org.  Don’t miss it!!
 
We also get an update on the by-laws election at the Pacifica Radio Network, with reports from New York, California, Texas, Georgia and more.
 
This is the Grassroots Election Protection Emergency Coalition Zoom #62.  We are glad to have you aboard

AFGHAN DEJA VU; A NEW GEORGIA MIRACLE?;  CA RECALL/NEW NY GOV; FOR THE PEOPLE/JOHN LEWIS ACTS; NATIONAL SUMMIT 8/30

For our 61st Grassroots Emergency Election Protection Coalition zoom we note the American flight from Kabul, replicating the one from Saigon on April 30, 1975.

HAS THERE BEEN NO LEARNING CURVE?

We ask the same of REBECCA LANDAU and RAY MCCLENDON as we confront the unlikely Georgia Senatorial campaign of former NFL bust & Trump devotee Herschel Walker. 
Rebecca and Ray discuss the major post card campaign and other grassroots tactics meant to keep hold on Georgia’s US Senate seat in 2002.

With TATANKA BRICCA and others we examine the California recall; with JULIE WIENER we face the new Governor in NY.

With JOEL SEGAL we go deep into the major national summit upcoming August 30, 1-5pm eastern, to gather top national leaders & grassroots organizations around Voting Rights/Election Protection; a Green Planet;  DC Statehood; and Justice, Homelessness & Poverty.
This monumental zoom will allow key organizers to announce their campaigns, their goals, what they need and how to get in touch.  It will be the prime unifying event for the progressive community leading up to the 2022 mid-term elections…and much more.

We also explore the critical progress of the nation’s two critical federal election protection laws, the FOR THE PEOPLE ACT and the JOHN LEWIS ACT.  Both are tied up in the complexities of Congressional maneuvering.  This report tells us how.

We finish with a round-table of front-line reports.  If you are ready to work for a democratic and sustainable future in the country, don’t miss this show!

A COUP IN CALIFORNIA?  CRAZY IN ARIZONA?  AMERICAN FASCISM HOME TO ROOST?

Our GRASSROOTS EMERGENCY ELECTION PROTECTION COALITION Zoom Call #60 starts with TATANKA BRICCA sounding the alarm on the recall of Gavin Newsom.

California's Democratic Governor could be removed in September if he fails to get 50% of the vote.  He’d then be replaced by an extreme right-wing Trumpist who could do major damage. 

If ancient Senator Diane Feinstein leaves the Senate, control could then be shifted to the GOP.

We get a full report from the three Arizona musketeers JOHN BRAKEY, RAY LUTZ & STEVE ROSENFELD on the terminal insanity of the state that’s given us Kyrsten Sinema and the Ninja nincompoops.

We also hear from BRYNN TANNEHILL on her brilliant overview of AMERICAN FASCISM, which warns of the GOP coup that could destroy American democracy forever.

CHARLES MORELAND and JOEL SEGA update us on the impact of COVID on upcoming planned events for DC STATEHOOD, a GREEN EARTH & JUSTICE, this coming August 27-30.

We hear further reports on the spread of the COVID in the face of mass vaccination, masking and more.

In the face of an escalating attack on our basic freedoms, don’t miss this call!!

THE HOUSING CRISIS, ANTI-DEMOCRACY ASSAULT IN GA, DREAM DRUMMING & MARCH, AN END TO AZ INSANITY?

Our very packed GREEP Zoom #59 opens with a deep, difficult descent into the terrible crisis of homelessness.  As the Democrats fail to stem the eviction crisis, we look toward 3 million Americans shelterless and on the streets.

We hear from RAY MCCLENDON of the Atlanta NAACP about the terrifying fascist assault of the gerrymandered Georgia legislature against the state’s democratic election apparatus.

MAUREEN TAYLOR tells us of the crisis in Michigan’s voting procedures and the mass marches against it.

CHARLES MORELAND lays out the major progress being made toward the upcoming August 27-30 DREAM events for DC Statehood, a Green Earth & Justice.

JOEL SEGAL describes the upcoming August 30 Summit/Roundtable for voting rights & justice at the Plymouth Church in DC.  Joel also lays out plans for SMART ALEC, the exciting new coalition for drafting progressive legislation.

CHASE IRON EYES confirms there will be a Drum Circle in Lafayette Park the morning of August 30, followed by the delivery of a solar panel and plan for a Clean/Green White House.

We end with an amazing report from Arizona and RAY LUTZ on how he, JOHN BRAKEY & STEVE ROSENFELD turned a complete fiasco into an important democracy learning event for the whole nation.

There is much more in this action-packed session on grassroots democracy.  Don’t miss it!
