Hosted By : MDPAN and Detroit water Brigade: ******WE WILL GATHER AT ATWATER BREWERY about 3:30- 4 the march will start at 3 walking from Atwater up the Riverwalk Rally around the REN CENTER SPLASH FOUNTAIN********* This March will bring awareness to the following issues Detroit Water Shut offs, Infrastructure Issues, and to make water affordable at a price all can pay around the region. We oppse the Great Lakes Water Authority and Demand justice for FLINT! Water is a human right, not a corporate right. Michigan holds 20% percent of the worlds fresh water, yet people in Detroit are without. 19,000 shutoffs this month alone. Over 89,000 homes in the last 3 years. People are being bullied out of their homes because water bills are being tacked on to property taxes. Basic human rights are being denied and it is criminal. The media is ignoring this. Its time WE fight back against the injustice that is happening to the families in Detroit! Dress in bathrobes, and towels. WE are taking the streets in Detroit! TURN THE WATER ON OR WE will be establishing places for people to wash themselves up and drawing much needed attention to this massive human rights violation. Please watch this. This tells our story. #WaterIsAHumanRight http://www.detroitmindsdying.org/ Cohost : Real Voices Detroit https://www.facebook.com/realvoiceslive/ Detroit Light Brigade https://www.facebook.com/DetroitLightBrigade/

We know with the GOP proposed healthcare bill, 22 million people would loose their health coverage in the next decade, and this means an earlier death for many. With over 30% of our current health costs going to billing and administrative costs, we know we can do more for the 28 million who are currently uninsured. Also, our country shamefully has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the "developed" nations. I believe we can push our government to better represent and advocate for the majority of people. A national single payer health care option would be the most affordable, effective, and efficient way to ensure that all Americans receive adequate healthcare. https://www.resistandprotest.com/event/michigan-march-medicare-all

"A conservative group recently formed to support the policies of President Donald Trump is planning events throughout the state this summer to drum up support for the current administration." Are we ready to fight back? MDPAN is planning a small counter protest in response. We need to ensure that Duggan's and other local businesses understand the cost of openly endorsing fascism. We will assemble on Woodward with signs. The Fascists are organizing a statewide effort to prop up the intolerable and illegitimate 45. We need to let local businesses and the people know that openly endorsing bigotry and austerity comes at a cost. Refuse to tolerate fascism in any form. Protect our neighbors and loved ones from unconstitutional abuse. The bourgeois are bleeding us dry, but we will not be silent! Onward to democracy! This isn't about harassing people who voted differently. Bring your heart, bring your signs, and bring your issues. We are not defined by what we oppose, but by our positive vision for the future. Healthcare, immigration, criminal justice reform, ongoing voter suppression, redistricting, bloated military spending, the militarization of the police, and the abhorrent misdistribution of wealth are all on the table. The future of humanity is at stake. You can check out the fascists' site here: http://www.michigantrumprepublicans.com/ Please message us or comment here for more information.

The environment is a pretty common topic of discussion these days, but what often gets lost in the discussion of how we all stand to gain or lose from what happens to the planet is the way that environmental issues intersect with social inequality, creating a starkly different set of threats along lines of race, class, gender, immigration status, and sexual identity. Climate change and pollution are often depicted as big, abstract, global problems, an argument which sometimes obscures the ecological destruction and environmental injustice happening today, often in our own communities. This month, Detroit's Jacobin Reading Group will be meeting on Tuesday July 25th from 6pm to 7:45pm at the Conely branch of the Detroit Public Library at 4600 Martin in Southwest Detroit. We will be discussing the movement for environmental justice both here in Detroit and nationally, and how people can get involved in the fight against ecological inequality and policies which hurt poor communities and communities of color. Joining us for the conversation is the East Michigan Environmental Action Council, who will be discussing their work on these issues and sharing information about how Detroiters can get involved. For people looking to get a bit of background on how we got here and the larger picture of what's going on, we put together the following readings. It's also possible that some people might have a lot to say on the subject but not a lot of time to do the readings, in which case we would still love to have you at the conversation on Tuesday. People without a lot to say who still want to learn about the issue and how to get involved are also welcome. PLEASE NOTE: We have moved the meeting to Southwest Detroit instead of our usual location and would hate for anyone to miss the above memo and head to the library in midtown instead. Again, we will be at the Conely branch of the Detroit Public Library at 4600 Martin one block north of Michigan Avenue. Readings are as follows: Principles of Environmental Justice http://www.ejnet.org/ej/principles.html Copeland, William. "From Climate Oppression to 21st Century Leadership: What Will the New Black Economy Look Like?" http://www.huffingtonpost.com/william-copeland/from-climate-oppression-t_b_6594692.html Kahle, Trish.

Here’s your summer read! We invite you to read On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century by Timothy Synder. Join us at Swords into Plowshares on Sunday, August 6 at 2:00 p.m. for a discussion of this provocative little book. This short book offers twenty pithy, often sobering, suggestions based on the happenings in the 20th century. Here are two quotes from the Prologue: “History does not repeat, but it does instruct.” “History can familiarize and it can warn.”

"Nuclear Disarmament: What is taking us so long?" will be presented by Sister Megan Rice from Washington, D.C. Sister Megan Rice was 82 years old in 2012 when she and two fellow activists broke onto the property of the Y-12 uranium plant for nuclear bombs in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The antiwar protest was called "the biggest security breach in the history of the nation's atomic complex." They were convicted of trespassing. When she was released after serving two years in prison, she said, "We have 7,000 nuclear weapons under the control of one man...I'm not out of prison. None of us is out of prison as long as one nuclear bomb exists." Megan is at the center of Washington Post reporter Dan Zak's book, "Almighty: Courage, Resistance, and Existential Peril in the Nuclear Age."

Regular Sierra Club SEMG Membership meeting, 1st Thursday, monthly. This is the follow-up film made by Josh Fox's award-winning documentary feature GASLAND. The new film continues to explore the controversial method of extracting natural gas and oil known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. It shows both how dangerous the practice is and how pervasive the gas industry's influence on public policy has become. Tempered by Fox's trademark dark humor, the film shows how the stakes have been raised on all sides in one of the most divisive environmental issues facing our nation today. Open to the public; any interested person can attend. 6:30-7:00 Snacks, socializing 7:00-7:10 Announcements 7:10 Presentation

Designated representatives of local peace groups discuss peace issues. Also, to share announcements of upcoming events. Agenda TBD: Potential topics -- Federal Budget -- The Wars: Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen -- Report on Hiroshima event with Sister Megan Rice -- Announcements Note: the group usually meets on a 2nd Thursday of the month. However, there is a large event on that day in September which would have made parking around Swords into Plowshares difficult. We chose to meet on the first Thursday (Sept 7) this one time.
