Today’s May Day Unite & Resist is cancelled due to hurricane watch!
Many thanks to the many who made the People’s Solidarity Climate Rally so positive and strong (see wnypeace.org post and fb event page). Thanks too to Activists of Buffalo’s Johanna C. Dominguez who took this and so many great pictures of people coming out to Defend the Sacred, protecting People and the Planet.
We will continue with the National Days of Action this Saturday with the Immigrants Solidarity March/Rally on May 6, 1pm. If we are weathered out with the rain, cold, or other climate events, we’ll hold the entire event at Pilgrim-St Luke’s (Richmond & Utica). Watch our wnypeace.org and fb event page to keep posted
Many Thanks, Peace, Solidarity, and yes Love. Cresley, Kate, Peggy, Vicki, and All

The local Tax Day March, on Saturday April 15, was a great show of solidarity on this National Day of Action! Kudos to all who came out to protest the injustice of the president’s secretive tax returns and his plans to give the rich even more tax breaks as programs for people get cut down. We will get our message through! Si, se puede!
Onward! Let’s keep the pressure on!
