Next Steps For The No Confidence Movement
101 H St., Arcata (Marsh Commons)
Veterans For Peace Chapter 56
I will make another presentation and facilitate discussion that will be open to the public. Then the VFP members will vote on whether to endorse the No Confidence resolution.
Today the Eureka Times-Standard verbally agreed to run a 500-700 word editorial that I haven't yet written. I also spoke with reporter Megan Vogel who will interview me on Thursday morning.
The leaflets are getting around. Thanks to some of the VFP members I know are already on board, I've gotten some support spreading the word. Seeing other people doing this has made me infinitely more motivated. There is no question that we have serious momentum. People often perceive momentum as equivalent to potential. People invest in potential.
We need more volunteers to write letters and call radio stations, as well as hand out more leaflets (.doc). To make it as easy as possible for anyone to get involved, GuvWurld now features the No Confidence Campaign Primer.
This is a super distilled, bullet point presentation of all the talking points and the overarching strategy. It's everything necessary to help the community understand that "We have no BASIS for confidence in the validity and legitimacy of the results reported in United States elections." Once you read the Primer, you will be able to reason with your neighbor about why it makes sense for the Arcata City Council to pass this resolution. We are epitomizing Think Global, Act Local.
