"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.

SEMG Membership Meeting Elks Lodge, 2401 E. 4th St., Royal Oak, MI (at corner of 4th St. & SB I-75 Service Drive, South of 11 Mile Rd.) 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
