Hi Friend –
Tonight we celebrate.
After the vote, after 480 miles of marching, 12 days of occupation, 47 arrests, and 3 legislative wins, we gathered to announce the end of the #SACsitin. We celebrated our victories and shared a vision for where we go from here. I want to share those things with you and invite you to join our celebration.
When we set out from Los Angeles 48 days ago, we were determined to make the sacrifice of walking almost 500 miles across California, occupying our state capitol for days, and going to jail because we believed it would do two things. First, we believed our bold action would challenge our elected leaders to acknowledge and act to end the crisis of corruption. The journey was indeed very difficult, the sacrifice real – marked by pain, stress, and fatigue – but our faith in its power has been dramatically confirmed by win after win.
The very first day after our arrival rally & first sit-in at the Capitol, California became the 2nd state in the union to pass a resolution calling for an Article V Convention to propose a money-out 28th Amendment. In the 1st week of our occupation, we joined other democracy activists in filling a hearing room with our bodies & stories and a once-uncertain committee passed the California Disclose Act. And on Monday, as we stood watch in the gallery and held high the new symbol of our movement – one finger raised high, signifying “one person, one vote” political equality – the Assembly passed SB1272.

Everyone has been following the mobilizations going on in Brazil with strikes and demonstration by workers and popular organizations expressing their indignation about the World Cup with its astronomic costs and corruption, all in function of the interests of the multinational companies and FIFA.
But at the same time people have been .putting forward their concrete struggles making demands for salaries, rights, housing, better public services. They have denounced repression and criminalization of dissent, etc.
