Regular IUY Meeting: April 11

Regular Indivisible Upper Yellowstone Meeting, Wednesday April 11, 2018 6PM Livingston-Park County Library
Indivisibles,

Seven months from now (April 6 to November 6) we go to the polls. Think about what that could mean:

Will we continue experiencing mass murders and a staggering level of daily gun related deaths?
Will there be a war with Iran and/or North Korea?
Will Americans stop tolerating an accelerating level of corruption among the governing?
Will demagogues fail while using race, religion and ethnicity to divide us?
Will we actually fight against Russian interference in our democracy.
Will we ever become revolted enough by presidential sex scandals?
Can we stop the move to give away our public lands?
Can we return to our roots as a nation of opportunity for immigrants?
Will women see a culture in this country that is fair and respectful?
Will we continue to downgrade our desperately important public education?
Can we avoid an idiotic trade war?
Will we still have clean air and water – anywhere? (Climate change anyone?)
Will millions of Americans no longer be able to afford health insurance?
Will people understand that the few bucks they get back from “tax reform” are temporary – and vastly unequal to the sums given to corporations and the wealthiest?

This month, on Wednesday April 11 at 6PM in the Livingston Park County Library (lower level, Stevenson Room), Indivisible Upper Yellowstone again meets to review these and other issues to prioritize our demonstrations, advertising – and soon – our get out the vote efforts.We’re all busy and this is, of course,”just another meeting” but it’s also an opportunity in a pivotal few months to learn, express opinions, hash out issues, and help decide on actions.

Shortly, in another email message, we’re going to make an ask – become a member of Indivisible Upper Yellowstone ($10) and contribute to our ad campaign (we need $4500 for the next seven months). But right now please consider participating in person – we have a long hard march to the mid-term elections – just like the “March for Our Lives” – participation makes a difference.

Nelson and Dixie

IUY – Regular Meeting, Monday December 11

Regular meeting of Indivisible Upper Yellowstone – Monday December 11, 6PM MSU Extension Classroom, 119 South 3rd St. Livingston
This is a ‘regular’ monthly meeting, but the times are anything but regular. As the chaos in congress paces the presidential tweets, we’ve had more demonstrations and calls for action on such a wide variety of issues (tax bill, net neutrality, attack on public lands, sexual harassment, and more) than ever.
We – with our toe-hold on the political scene in Montana – have stood up and marched (Bozeman on the tax bill, on Net Neutrality). We’ve done something that has perked interest in the community – running a series of ads in the Enterprise to educate the public about the tax bill.We want extend that activity. To do that we need to sift through the many issues and our options to make our opinions known.
Participating in this meeting is not only a good way to catch up on the fast developing issues, it really does help us find ways of being effective.

Demonstration for Net Neutrality

Protest Against Rollback of Net Neutrality

LIVINGSTON: 11:30 AM to 1:00PM at the Verizon store (Cellular Plus) at 7th and Park
BOZEMAN: 4:30PM at the Verizon store near Kohls and Roseauers

Internet users outraged by top Verizon lawyer turned FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to gut net neutrality are planning to protest at Verizon retail stores across the country on Thursday, December 7th, one week before an expected vote at the FCC. Protesters will make it clear to members of Congress that the time is now to stand for net neutrality, not Verizon’s bottom line. And please remember, this event is about protesting actions of Verizon executives, lobbyists and their supporters in Washington, not the employees at these stores.
Please join us to help raise our communities’ awareness of this issue which strikes at the core of public access and free speech in an age when political dissent and activism relies on the internet more than any ever.

Please note: the store in Livingston is not a Verizon owned store, but a licensed retailer of Verizon products.  Please make sure your signs are focused on the Verizon corporation, Ajit Pai, the FCC, or congress and do not mention Cellular Plus.  Please do not impede access to the store by customers or employees.

The Livingston event is sponsored by Montana Women For and Indivisible Upper Yellowstone

Tax Bill Forum – Thursday Nov. 30

GOP/Trump Tax Bill Forum
7:00 PM Thursday November 30
(old) Lincoln School auditorium (3rd floor)
215 East Lewis Street
Livingston
What do you need to know about the GOP/Trump Tax Bill currently in the Senate?
Have doubts about the claims and counterclaims?
Disturbed by the fog of lies and trickery?
Is it really as bad as some say it is? Like 13 million people losing healthcare; the national debt ballooning by $1.5 trillion; eventual cuts to Medicare and Social Security to pay for – what? – a massive tax cut for corporations and the wealthiest 1%.
Bring your questions and confusions to the Tax Bill Forum. It’s a learning experience for all of us, this unprecedented legislation. Our panel, moderated by Nelson King of Indivisible Upper Yellowstone and including Laurie Bishop (D-Montana State Representative) and ‘crowd wisdom’ will piece together the most accurate picture we can.
We, progressives, Democrats, liberals, independents, need to take this SERIOUSLY. The bill absolutely could pass with most of the worst intact. We need to spread the word so that people know what is coming…

Demonstration – Daines’ office – Monday Nov. 27

.

DEMONSTRATION AT the DAINES OFFICE
1PM Monday, November 27
13 South Willson Ave. (Just off Main St.)
Bozeman

.

BYOS (Bring Your Own Signs)

.

We need a wakeup call – yes, we progressives, Democrats, liberals. The Senate is really, truly on the verge of passing one of the most blatantly regressive and destructive tax bills in U.S. history – like removing 13 million people from affordable health care, giving a giant long term tax cut to corporations, and upping the national debt by $1.5 trillion.

 

Indivisible national has called for a nation-wide protest focused on Senators. This we will do by demonstrating at Sen. Steve Daines office in Bozeman. Bring you woolies, and wooly signs to get our message across – show there are people who care.
