My dear Environmental and politically concerned friends,
An action alert for your consideration. As a member of the resistance to trump’s fascist and racist coup of our government I would like to suggest we make a concerted effort to let corporations and their CEOs know that we will not tolerate their support of trump’s attack on our environment or women’s rights/human rights, civil rights or our freedom of religion and that means any religion. We also stand with our native brothers and sisters at Standing Rock and in solidarity of native Sovereign lands. And our public lands are not for sale. If they expect us to buy their products we expect them to support these rights.
Everytime I see a senator or representative (state or federal) make a tweet, I Tweet back to them and suggest strongly if they want my support in 2018 they will stand strong with the people against the trump agenda. I am also doing this whenever I see a tweet from any Corporation and let them know that if they expect me to spend my shopping dollars with them that I will not do business with companies or corporations that support his fascist agenda. My wife and I started by calling L.L.Bean and letting them know that we would never buy from them again. They had gotten quite a number of calls and tried desperately to let us know they wanted our business. We told them we wanted their support for freedom. We have been using all types of social media, emails and the telephone. After seeing on the news how many of the large corporations acquiesced immediately when they thought their bottom line would be affected, I believe this to be a sound and important strategy and defense of Human Rights and the rights of the people to demand the government work for us and not the corporations.
