Weekly Actions: April 9, 2017

April 9, 2017

Priority Actions for this week:  

  • Anti-War Action: To understand the basics about the Syrian Civil War, watch this short video and read this analysis on Trump’s bombings this week. Then, call your representative to demand that the US stop escalating violence in the region.

  • Refugee Discussion. Around the world, refugees are fleeing hardship, war and disaster, as the US and other countries tighten their borders.

    • Have a discussion or do some research in your PAGE group about the refugees in your country of residence. Who comes to the country and why? What kind of opportunities and challenges do they face? What do they want and how are they fighting for it? Who is fighting with them? How will changing US policies impact refugees in your country of residence? What local organizations support refugees coming into your country or city?

    • Consider holding a fundraiser event like Resistance Bangkok, the PAGE group in Thailand. The event will raise funds for Asylum Access Thailand, which supports refugees from various countries who are waiting in Thailand for resettlement.  

Extra Actions:

  • Virtual Tax March On April 15, taxpayers across the US will march to demand that the president release his tax returns. The Resistance group in Sevilla, Spain, has launched an ongoing virtual tax march. Learn how to participate here and check out some photos here.

  • Prep for Climate Day Action Solidarity for Humanity, a resistance group in Switzerland, is organizing a virtual event for April 29th, the day of the people’s climate march. More details and instructions coming soon. In the meantime, if you happen to be outdoors near something beautiful which will be impacted by climate change, take a photo of yourself with a sign that demands action.

  • Keep Resisting Cuts to USAID, State Department and the UN: If you haven’t already, check out PAGE’s guide for doing this, and share it among your contacts. It’s super important to take action NOW to prevent cuts here.

  • Art Resist Read this essay about resisting through photography.  

 

Ongoing Projects in Our Focus Areas:

 

Around the world, PAGE chapters are engaging across our four focus areas. If your PAGE group is interested in getting involved, email us at engage.with.page@gmail.com and we'll support you and connect you to other PAGE groups doing similar work.

 

Refugees/Immigration

  • PAGE is working on a list of legal and support resources for folks abroad who will be impacted by US immigration and refugee policy. Write to us if you have ideas or want to help coordinate.

  • Groups around the world are reaching out to local Muslim leaders to ask how they can provide support to them during this time of heightened Islamophobia and immigration bans.

  • You or your PAGE group could also work with or fundraise for local groups supporting refugees in your country of residence. As the United States closes its borders, we can work to ensure that refugees have options.

Environment and Climate Change

  • The March for Science is on April 22. Find out if there’s a sister march in your community. If not, think about organizing one. If that’s not possible, consider reaching out to a scientist in your country of residence, and see if there is an opportunity to promote their work, on social media or through other channels.

  • The People’s Climate March is April 29. Find out if there’s a sister march in your community. If not, think about organizing one. If that’s not possible, use this opportunity to reach out to an environmental activist in your country of residence, and see if there is an opportunity for your PAGE group to support their work.

  • The growing global climate movement 350.org is organizing global divestment activities the week of May 5-May 13. See if there’s a divestment action in your country of residence! If not, consider reaching out to local environmental activists to organize one.

Global Corporation Watch

  • Divest from the Dakota Access Pipeline. Organizers around the world are targeting the banks which have invested in DAPL. See a bank in your country of residence? Reach out to us and we’ll help you get started with divestment action.

  • Global Trump Boycott. While you might think that most of the resistance action is happening in the US, we have a special edge being abroad in that we can target and organize against Trump’s international businesses. Consider organizing a boycott in your community of residence.

US Foreign Policy + Aid

  • Trump has proposed MASSIVE budget cuts to the State Department and USAID. PAGE is organizing a coordinated response here, which involves coordinating with Indivisible groups in the US, keeping an eye on various congressional committees and organizing global social media pushes. Stay tuned for continued action and let us know if you’d like to help.

 

Thank you for working with us!
