Peaceful silent demonstration at E.Warren event in Northampton MA


Elizabeth Warren will be giving an income inequality speech at the WWII club in Northampton, Ma on Sunday. Doors open at 4. Some of us will be meeting at the park by the Academy of Music downtown around 3:00 to go over details. If you would like to meet directly at the club, please arrive no later than 3:30. Times are subject to change as space is limited and the event may fill up. Please wear all black to represent the grief we feel as we mourn the loss of the person we thought she was. This will be a silent visual Demonstration in reaction to her recent endorsment of Hillary Clinton and to let her know how we feel about it. We feel as if she has turned her back on us and has not acted in alignment with her own message. Please bring Bernie signs. We will stand with our backs facing her holding our Bernie signs for her to read. Please no shouting or interruptions. Sometimes silence speaks louder than words and can send a powerful message. Eye candy for ear candy.

After the demonstration, we, along with whoever else would like to join us, are going to flower bomb the town. We realize that many Bernie supporters have been heart broken by recent events and are feeling discouraged. We are here to say that THE REVOLUTION IS STILL ON!!!!!!!

We are going to get buckets of carnations or wild flowers and attach a message to the stems, something good along the lines of, "the revolution is on" "see you in Philly" "fight on" "Bernie or bust". We will walk around town and put them on every single car that has a Bernie sticker. We may even hand them out to every person we see walking on the street. Please join us.
Time:
Sunday, June 12, 2016 3:30 PM - 6:30 PM EDT....................

*****I have taken out the original OP that said it came from the Bernie Sanders site--see comments below in thread. The link was broken (some say it was taken down).

It's all over the Bernie friendly sites.

And the Sanders supporters are ignorant of the uselessness of "Permanent Protest," as usual.

6. Click on the link

"Invalid Event URL"

"The URL you clicked references an event that does not exist. This event may have existed at one time but been subsequently deleted. "

That should put an end to this hogwash.

19. The Facebook link works for me.

It's posted on the WWII club Facebook page, with a number of people responding in support of the demo.

I wonder though if these are actual Bernie supporters or Trump supporters stirring the shit. I think we should expect a lot of the latter in the coming months.

23. I don't have a problem with this. EW should know that some people are unhappy with her.


Demonstrating is fine especially when it is done civilly.

The whole sphere of Bernie supporters doesn't have to act like DU and pretend we're one big happy family.

37. No, they're just miffed because none of the leading Democrats will validate

their emotional attachment to Sanders. Warren weighed her options and made an informed choice to support Hillary. As if she had anything to gain by backing the losing challenger? Look eventually Sanders is either going to give it up on his own volition, or be pressured into it, and then what... these fringe fanatics will get dressed up in the "disapproval" costumes and target him too?

38. I don't expect dedicated HRC supporters to understand during this HRC uber alles moment, but one ...


... can still support a politician generally and protest against specific decisions or even timing of decisions.

I know its inconvenient, but its for the best in the long run.

30. This is sad and pathetic.

 

Senator Warren acted exactly as Bernie said superdelegates should. She didn't use her influence to hinder Bernie in any way, but now that the primary is OVER, she's working for the Dems to make sure we win. How is that anything to be criticized?

If Bernie fans want to know why 'Berniebros' caught on, and why there were often characterizations about the movement being full of a**holes, this is all the illustration you need.

Where's the demonstrations about Senator Merkley, who actually has flipped allegiances? Guess what, I'm going to bring up that word again. This is flat out sexist garbage.

You lost. It is time to accept it. Would you rather have Trump? I strongly disagree with this level of purity, and I don't think Bernie would be happy with it. This is unproductive fringe behavior.
