Bathrobespierre’s Broadsides streams today (7-5-20) at freakradio.org “Fuck the 4th” Rally and March 8-8-10 Flashback with Gillian Greensite and Curbhugger Chris Archives still Down, so tune in 9:30 AM-3 PM this morning

More important hit the streets to make real change! 


(A useless Zoomed City Council meeting on 6-23 ignored the strong demands to defund the SCPD.  It  proceeded with the usual prefabricated agenda involving no meaningful checks on current police use of force and violence.  The real budget meeting was on July 2nd.  Without strong loud community response beyond the sterile and City Manager-controlled confines of City Hall,  City Council will continue to ignore the ongoing protests and refuse to hold public meetings in the Civic where folks could distance and participate.  The Community needs to continue holding its own meetings (i.e. protests in the streets and using the public buildings as we need to))
