    Impeachment rallies are being held across the country. Organizers said they’re fed up with President Trump and the way he’s leading our country. One of the rallies was held in San Francisco Sunday afternoon off the Embarcadero. “This is the San Francisco location of a nationwide set of rallies going on,” Organizer Vara Ramakrishnan said. “There’s about 57 rallies in cities and towns and small streets all over the country. What we’re doing is we’re showing our support to congress which is headed back to DC tomorrow at a uniquely dangerous time in our country’s history.” Ramakrishnan continued. “Families, little...

    As record numbers demonstrate in the streets of Hong Kong to protest a proposed extradition law and the mainland Chinese government, a Christian song penned in 1974 has become an "unofficial anthem." Christian groups in the autonomous territory in southeastern China of approximately 7.4 million people — a former British colony — have been singing "Sing Hallelujah To The Lord" by Linda Stassen-Benjamin while protesting and marching in the streets. The song, which is catchy and simple in melody, is popular around the world and has been translated into many languages. The demonstrators have also been protesting against police brutality....

    Mullahs' Regime in Iran faces with several crises, all of which have the potential to trigger major protests, and that was before the announcement of new sanctions by the United States targeting the regime’s oil and metal sectors. A major crisis was triggered by the announcement of a spike in fuel prices. That led to extraordinary queues and protests at gas stations. Fearing large-scale protests, the regime was forced to announce that they won’t be raising gas prices. Another major incident was a large protest by workers, teachers, and pensioners outside the regime’s Majlis (Parliament) and its House of Workers....

    Eight protesters were arrested Wednesday morning as they blocked a van from leaving a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Southwest Portland. A video shows a band of protesters linked at the arms, blocking the van from exiting the facility. It also shows several of them being detained by federal officers, who deployed pepper balls at close range, as well as pepper spray. One detained protester ran away, but the video appears to show authorities leading that protester back to the scene. Robert Sperling, a Federal Protective Service spokesman, said officers went after that protester but didn't know whether...

    Thousands have gathered in central Istanbul to protest the United States’ embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and recognise the city as Israel’s capital, and the massacre of Palestinians that followed. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has been among the strongest critics of U.S. President Donald Trump's decision after he announced the embassy move last December. An Extraordinary Session of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC)’s Islamic Summit Conference was swiftly brought together under Erdoğan’s leadership to respond to the announcement, rejecting and condemning “in the strongest terms the unilateral decison by the President of the United States of America recognizing...

    Demonstrators waving posters, honking horns and yelling slogans gathered in Be’er Sheva Saturday night to protest against the arrest and jailing of an IDF soldier who shot and killed a terrorist who was apparently “neutralized” in Hebron last week. The protesters stood across from Prison No. 4 on Saturday night, where the soldier is incarcerated, according to Israeli radio. One of the protesters spoke with Channel 1 as other bystanders shot video with their cellphones, saying that he had served as a member of the Border Guard Police, and as a father of two combat soldiers,...

    Despite the French president calling for “unity” in the light of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, an almighty row broke out on Thursday after the National Front were not invited to Sunday’s Republican rally. France’s politicians were not able to show their new found unity for long. Just a day after the Charlie Hebdo shooting left 12 dead and had politicians calling for the country to unite, a row between politicians broke out after the National Front were not invited to take part in Sunday’s rally for “national unity” in Paris. For her part Marine Le Pen was furious that the...

From here, it sounds like the powers-that-be are demonizing it - reminds me of what they said about the Tea Party. Curious to have some feedback from those closer in. Thanks.

    On Sunday, September 21st, a huge crowd will march through the middle of Manhattan. It will almost certainly be the largest rally about climate change in human history, and one of the largest political protests in many years in New York. More than 1,000 groups are coordinating the march—environmental justice groups, faith groups, labor groups—which means there's no one policy ask. Instead, it's designed to serve as a loud and pointed reminder to our leaders, gathering that week at the United Nations to discuss global warming, that the next great movement of the planet's citizens centers on our survival and...
