Please join the People's Water Board Coalition and concerned citizens on Tuesday morning to demand the Detroit City Council implement an Income Based Water Affordability Ordinance. Dont forget to grab a comment card when you arrive. They give them out right before the meeting starts. Water is simply not affordable in Detroit and masses are being shut off this month! If you are unable to make the city council meeting, please call your councilperson and demand they make water affordability a priority! http://www.detroitmi.gov/Government/City-Council

Following several high profile ICE actions here in Southeast Michigan and the introduction of legislation at the state level to punish "sanctuary cities", cities which decline to participate in the deportation and detention of undocumented immigrants, many immigrant communities and their advocates have been concerned about how we can defend our neighbors from further punitive measures and targeted ICE raids which serve political purposes and disrupt families and communities. This month, Detroit's Jacobin Reading Group will be meeting on Tuesday June 27th 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 sanctuary city movement and related issues facing immigrant communities here and across the country, and sharing information about how people can get involved with the struggle for immigrant rights here in Detroit. For people looking to get a bit of background on how the state 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: Boscarino, Timothy. "Is Detroit a Sanctuary City? Depends on Who You Ask." http://www.modeldmedia.com/features/detroit-sanctuary-city-013017.aspx Goodfriend, Hilary. "A Demand for Sanctuary." https://www.jacobinmag.com/2017/02/sanctuary-movement-central-america-el-salvador-trump-deportations/ Stanton, Ryan. "Legislation taking aim at Michigan 'sanctuary cities' moves forward." http://www.mlive.com/news/ann-arbor/index.ssf/2017/06/legislation_taking_aim_at_mich.html

If you are an organization that wants to cohost or speak please contact us WHY WE MARCH FOR IMPEACHMENT Donald Trump has been in violation of the Constitution from the day he was sworn into the office of President. We cannot abide a Congress that turns a blind eye to the constitutional breaches of our Commander in Chief. We demand that Congress does its job and commences with impeachment proceedings immediately. GROUNDS FOR IMPEACHMENT President Trump must be impeached under Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution for Treason, Bribery, or High Crimes and Misdemeanors, in particular: (1) Obstruction of Justice. Article 2, Section 1.8. of the Constitution Sets forth the oath of office: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will do to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” In his conduct of the Office of President of the United States, Trump in violation of his oath faithfully to execute the Office of President of the Unites States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in his duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has prevented, obstructed, and impeded the administration of justice in that he: 1a. Interfered with the Department of Justice of the United States and Federal Bureau of Investigation by dismissing officers and investigators conducting investigations as to his illegal activities, including Preet Bharara the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Salley Yates, the Deputy and Acting Attorney General of the United States, and James Comey, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. 1b. Made false and misleading statements the people of the United States to deceive the people that investigations as to his misdeeds and those of his subordinates were and are being conducted thoroughly and completely with regard to his misconduct and the misconduct of his subordinate 1c. Failed to provide information regarding General Flynn’s dealings with the Russians to the House Intelligence Committee. (2) Violation of the Foreign Emoluments Clause Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 [N]o Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State. The framers of the Constitution created this clause to ensure that US officials would not be corrupted by gifts or payments from foreign powers, yet President Trump receives a constant stream of cash and favors from foreign powers and their agents. Inconsistent with the practice of all modern era Presidents and the expectations of the public, he has refused to place his business assets into a blind trust in which he would have no control over the assets and decision making of his businesses, but instead, directly and/or through his family continues to control his businesses and receive business revenues. The single largest tenant of Trump Tower is the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, a wholly state-owned company. The Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority office holds a lease with Trump Tower. Foreign diplomats and foreign embassy events at Washington’s Trump International Hotel. More than an obvious conflict of interest, receipt of any monies by him or his businesses under his control of him or his family from any foreign government or representative of a foreign government is a present or emolument in direct violation of the United States Constitution. Trump has financial relationships with businesses and governments throughout the world, including Turkey, the Philippines, India, Great Britain, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Brazil, Bulgaria, and Viet Nam. Most importantly, he has financial dealings with Russia and China, the extent of which are largely unknown and will remain so as long as he refuses to release his tax returns as has been done by all modern era Presidents, a promise upon which he reneged. These conflicts of interest have not only enriched Trump, buy have undermined our national security. (3) Violation of the Free speech rights of the citizens and the press. Has denied access to the White House by certain members of the press and publicly villified the press by calling them enemies of the people in violation of the First Amendment Rights of the people and his duty to protect the Constitution of the United States. (4) Treason. Article III, Section 2 of the United States Constitution defines treason in part as giving “Aid and comfort” to our enemies. By condoning hacking by the Russian Government of a major political party and encouraging dissemination of hacked materials for purposes of political gain and by condoning unauthorized, unsecured meetings with Russia and other governments he has breached the security of the United States. (5) Libeled and slandered the former President of the United States with criminal intent. Trump maliciously and intentionally maligned President Obama by accusing the former President of wiretapping him. Making a false allegation of a crime is a crime. (6) Issuance of a travel ban in Violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment, the Establishment Clause of the 1st Amendment and the due process clauses of the fifth and fourteenth amendments. 6a. The order singles out persons because of their religious preference in violation of the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. 6b. Because the order bans individuals from specific Muslim countries, it establishes a religious test in violation of the establishment clause of the First Amendment. 6c. The travel ban gives the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security almost unlimited powers without procedural protections in violation of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments. Donald Trump’s extreme disregard for the Constitution is a profound subversion of the Office of the President. Neither do we feel our country is in safe nor able hands, and we will not quietly ride out a tenure that threatens our democracy and way of life. We demand that Congress stop enabling President Trump through an embarrassing and potentially catastrophic charade of normalcy. The future of American Democracy rests in their hands. CONGRESS: DO YOUR JOB, OR LOSE YOUR JOB.

Since November, Americans have been engaged in nonstop peaceful resistance to the dangerous rhetoric and actions of the Trump administration and the GOP. Millions of us have marched, protested, called, written, and otherwise stood up. It's time to take a moment and celebrate what we’ve achieved — and recharge for the work ahead — with a summer social gathering: a Resistance Summer Community Cook-Out! The Resistance Summer Community Cookouts are an opportunity for a range of local and national partner groups in the Resistance to come together with friends old and new. We'll build our relationships and celebrate the diversity that makes us stronger. Our goal is to encourage taking care of ourselves and each other, to celebrate all we've achieved, and to enjoy ourselves! These are ways to reinforce the resilience of the Resistance and help us to stay in it for the long haul. Promoted via MoveOn. RSVP at the link above.

FREE ELECTRONIC COPY OF BOOK (for educational purposes only) https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B_akx02w9nqDaHVfeXNidFI2ZnM BOOK TRAILER: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWvEfg8bVB4 PURCHASE BOOK: http://newjimcrow.com/about/buy The New Jim Crow is a stunning account of the rebirth of a caste-like system in the United States, one that has resulted in millions of African Americans locked behind bars and then relegated to a permanent second-class status—denied the very rights supposedly won in the Civil Rights Movement. Since its publication in 2010, the book has appeared on the New York Times bestseller list for more than a year; been dubbed the “secular bible of a new social movement” by numerous commentators, including Cornel West; and has led to consciousness-raising efforts in universities, churches, community centers, re-entry centers, and prisons nationwide. The New Jim Crow tells a truth our nation has been reluctant to face.

It’s Fascism! Drive Out the Trump/Pence Regime Fascism has direction and momentum. Dissent is criminalized, truth bludgeoned, group after group demonized and targeted. All this has begun under Trump. The Trump/Pence Regime – the whole thing – every cabinet post, every executive order, every tweet is a link in the chain of a fascist government and worldview under the signboard of a vengeful “America First” being rammed into place. Every immigrant family ripped apart… every refugee turned back to war torn countries… every pipeline approved… every river despoiled… every denial of proven science, of established facts, of truth itself is killing people now and will cost millions more lives. This is poison to air, water, the earth, and to the conscience of the world. This is what renders the Trump/Pence Regime illegitimate and a grave threat to people all over the world. Therefore, our single unifying mission must be to Drive Out the Trump/Pence Regime. A critical juncture... July 15, 2017 nationwide protests to demand: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!

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/

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.”
Sunday, August 6, 2017 from 7-9pm

"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."

Come stand with them. Mission To provide a platform for children and youth to speak about issues that affect their lives, communities, and the world around them. Goal To encourage youth to be civically engaged in their communities and to stand up for their basic human rights.
