CNY Solidarity members and supporters:
Please find below the weekly ACTION ALERTS from Indivisible NY24 and our legislative action teams:
Monday (Sept 23)
Call for Impeachment Last week, we learned that Trump’s effort to pressure Ukraine with funding cutoffs to investigate former Vice-President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, apparently triggered a whistleblower report found credible by the Inspector General for the Director of National Intelligence (but illegally kept from Congress). Ukraine depends on American support to avoid a Russian takeover. This impeachable offense likely constitutes bribery and certainly betrays America. Call John Katko, (202) 225-3701 or (315) 423-5657 to ask him to support an impeachment inquiry. Call House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to demand unequivocal backing of an impeachment inquiry and ask her and Jerry Nadler (the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee) to produce articles of impeachment from the Judiciary committee by November 1. (202) 224-3141. More information here and here.
Making Sense of the Mueller Report.
6-7:30 pm. Once again our own Tom Keck will provide an overview of the Mueller Report, with time for Q&A, at Tully Public Library. More details here.
Tuesday (Sept 24)
Weekly Vigil Until they #CloseTheCamps
12-12:15. Together with our friends from the Syracuse Immigrant and Refugee Defense Network, we’ll be outside Rep. Katko’s office in Syracuse every Tuesday at noon until they close the concentration camps at the southern border. More details here.
Wednesday (Sept 25)
Public Hearing on building a Trail on Murphy’s Island on the shore of Onondaga Lake 6 p.m. Come to the OnCenter to share your thoughts on this environmental issue with the Department of Environmental Conservation. More information is here.
Thursday (Sept 26)
Meeting on Public Charge Immigration Rule
5:30-7:00 p.m. Come to the North Side Learning Center office at 501 Park Street in Syracuse to learn about the public charge rule, a new rule limiting legal immigration. Sponsored by the New York Immigration Coalition. More details here.
Saturday (Sept 28)
An Assembly in Support of All Immigrants
11:30-12:00 noon: We will assemble in much the same fashion as we do on Tuesdays, standing silently with our signs of support for all immigrants but especially those currently held in the abhorrent concentration camps. Feel free to bring your own sign; we will also have a bunch of printed standard signs to share.
Location is the sidewalk adjacent to the paid parking at the Regional Transportation Center (RTC), during the Saturday farmers market. The market results in a substantial amount of slow moving traffic. In our experience, we find this location and time to be effective and relevant because:
1) The increased presence of Border Patrol at the RTC.
2) As Saturday will be a market day, there will be increased exposure.
3) A large portion of the market’s customer base is immigrants.
4) Too, immigrants deserve a lot of the credit for the produce being available at the market.
Sunday (Sept 29)
CNY Solidarity Meeting
3-5 p.m. Join us at the CNY Solidarity meeting on Sunday, September 29th at Park Central! In the first half of our meeting we will hear from organizers from the Workers’ Center of CNY, followed in the second half by committee meetings. Park Central Presbyterian Church, 504 E. Fayette St., Syracuse, NY 13202. https://www.facebook.com/events/1754561794851260/
