How shall we greet Trump this Wednesday in Ypsilanti?

I want to go and protest Trump’s visit to Ypsilanti on Wednesday, but I don’t have a good idea for a sign. The best I’ve been able to come up with so far is the image above, which I just cobbled together using whatever rudimentary tools I could find online, but I doubt that it’ll […]

America’s scientists, told that research dollars are drying up and that they face new restrictions on how they discuss their work with the public, join the fight against Trump

Occupy Cross Street…. Ypsilanti to host micro solidarity protest on Saturday

A few days ago, on this site, I suggested that we have a big “Occupy” event outside, or perhaps in the lobby of, an Ypsilanti branch of Bank of America.
