Plans for and Reasons for the Rally
|Piston Cap from Best Friend|
The Community Circle Rally has been conceived as a way to enable renewal of a progressive presence for Social and Economic Justice in the public physical and mental space. Our public squares have been monopolized by armed groups of anti science reactionaries focused on weapon ownership, anti-immigrant activities and resistance to public health measures implemented to contain the spread. These gatherings have been characterized by a dangerous and unconsidered disregard for the likelihood of biological hazard transmission of the Covid-19. A summary version of the safety and operation plan for the rally is now online in the Goodsharing.net event listing for the rally as text and a downloadable PDF.
