McCain is in SF! Join our welcome party tonight.
It’s no wonder that Sen. McCain’s campaign has been so cagey about their planned fundraiser in San Francisco. Now that word is out, look what’s happened! No Soldier Left Behind will rally outside the fundraiser at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco tonight.
For the last week, there was no evidence of a planned fundraiser on the McCain website. Today, the news is reporting a whole range of times for the start of the event. But in spite of all their efforts, we will gather at 6:30pm on Monday, July 28 at the Fairmont Hotel, 950 Mason Street, San Francisco, CA 94108. We’ll have signs, petitions, stickers, etc. If you are in the area, join us! For questions, contact me here.
UPDATE: We are now planning on getting a group out there earlier, at 5:30. Join us if you can!
REPORT BACK: It was a great action! You can see for yourself on this segment from one of the local stations that covered it, featuring your favorite peace group! (that’s us)
Why 6:30pm? That’s too late. McCain is supposed to arrive at the Fairmont at 5pm (according to the SF Chronicle), and the other protesting groups will be there by 5:30 at the latest. Move up your protest by an hour if you can! We need to all be there at the same time, to make an impact!
Actually I heard about that and we are working on turning our folks out earlier as I write this. Thanks for the heads up, and you’ll probably see a bunch of us out there around 5:30. Thanks!
