Solidarity Project with the People of Mexico
Mary Jo Connelly September 6 2019·
Don't miss the chance to join us next Sunday Sept. 15 from 4-6pm for food and conversation with Prof. Javier Bravo, a representative of Mexico's MORENA Party (the party that elected AMLO, a left-progressive President of Mexico).
It's a great opportunity to hear what's happening in Mexico with the astounding election of progressive Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), and to talk about what we can do on both sides of the border. For fellow left-electoral geeks, there's a lot to learn from AMLO and MORENA experience. See the attached flier for more information. — with Mike Connelly, Ben Echevarria, Shana Berger, Amanda Achin, Andre Green, Rae Axner, Matt Taylor, Will Mbah, Gabriel Mireles, Garret Virchick, Matthew Miller, Pennie Taylor, Vicki Jane, Lily Huang, Becca Tumposky, Ben Bradlow, Payton Corbett, John Fitzgerald, Greg Hill, Rene E.

According to a report by Sandy Eaton, Over 120 people from across the Massachusetts South Shore and beyond gathered in the United First Parish Church in Quincy Square on January 5th to discuss their concerns regarding growing threats to human rights and the environment, and to plan actions to promote equality, fairness and a healthy climate. This event was sponsored by the South Shore People’s Network and the South Shore Coalition for Human Rights, and hosted by the church’s Social Justice Concerns Committee.
Reverend Rebecca Froom, Minister of the Church of the Presidents, greeted everyone. Deanna White-Hebert, president of the South Shore Coalition for Human Rights, recalled the Coalition’s forty-year history of struggle against racism. Nick Giannone, a union activist from North Weymouth, introduced four invited speakers and then chaired the lively discussion that followed.
Cameron Bateman of the Massachusetts Nurses Association spoke, as did Lily Huang, a life-long Quincy resident, representing Jobs with Justice, and Nicole Sullivan from Boston Feminists for Liberation. Clayton Nino Brown, representing the ANSWER Coalition, urged folks to go to Washington on January 20th to protest the Inauguration.
