Weekly Actions: July 9, 2017

July 9, 2017

Dear PAGE Activist,

 

Trump is on another embarrassing tour abroad, visiting Poland, Russia, and the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. He has claimed a clash of civilizations is imminent and that the West must defend itself against “radical Islamic terrorism.” His hate speech is not being taken lightly by protesters and is being met with resistance - some peaceful, and some involving car-b-ques. Let’s take inspiration from the peaceful, but firm, folks in Hamburg and keep moving ahead our progressive agenda.

 

This week, our actions focus on defending the right of US residents to good healthcare, protecting our environment, and expanding our historical knowledge.

 

As always, our weekly actions are curated for US-Americans abroad and global citizens. If this is your first time receiving a PAGE email, please check out our website and resources for starting a PAGE group.

 

In Solidarity,

 

PAGE Global Coordinating Committee

 

Priority Actions

 

  • Oppose the deregulation maelstrom at the EPA. As recent reporting has noted, the Trump administration’s malevolence has far outpaced its incompetence in one area - dismantling environmental regulations that protect our air, water and climate. The EPA administrator, Scott Pruitt, has been taking much more input from industry than from his own staff. However, we can work together to create a record of public opposition to these efforts, giving support to those who wish to stop them - or reinstitute them in the future.

    1. Fill out a brief comment form by clicking here, and tell this administration it’s important to you to protect our nation’s water from pollution from coal plants!

    2. Support the Sierra Club as they stand up for the EPA and climate progress. Send a message to Pruit here. You can give money to the Sierra club here. Or check out any of their dozens of campaigns protecting the environment here.

 

  • Input into our Single-Payer Healthcare letter to the editor. PAGE is writing a letter that members can adapt and send to their local papers about experiences with public health insurance. Last week, we asked for your stories, and this week we are asking you for your input. The AHCA is not having an easy time in the Senate; Senator Mitch McConnell has said that if the bill does not pass, they will have to work with Democrats to prop up ACA markets. Those of us living with single-payer healthcare know that we can do better.

    • Please suggest concrete points to include (studies, statistics, anecdotes) on this Google doc.

 

Extra Action

  • Learn about other “revolutionaries”: The Fourth of July just happened, but we have many national holidays ahead of us. Indigenous people, descendants of slaves, and other marginalized folk are often feel excluded from these celebrations, and with good reason. As good accomplices, we should learn about other revolutionaries and counter-histories. Use our Anti-Oppression Guide’s Anti-Oppression Education Reading List to discover new heroes!  We suggest reading An Indigenous People’s History of the United States. Email us at engage.with.page@gmail.com if you have suggestions to add to the list!
