I’m excited about this Saturday’s Women’s March in San Francisco and San Jose.
We had a #BlueWave in 2018 but it began the day after Trump’s inauguration.
On January 19, 2019, Women’s March Bay Area will unite in San Jose and San Francisco to reaffirm our commitment to building a positive and just future for all, and to celebrate the spirit of resistance efforts over the past year.
The movement that began in 2017 is now a global demand for governments based on human rights, the Rule of Law and Democratic Systems.
Americans won a battle in 2018 but we haven’t won the war and Putin’s weaponized trolls will work non-stop to divide us.
The Women’s March is a national movement to unify and empower everyone who stands for human rights, civil liberties, and social justice for all. We stand together in solidarity for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families — recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country. The Women’s March
A personal note: I’ve been ill and have a post in the works to explain what happened: I will slowly catch up on comments and blog visits.

The “Elves” are citizen activists in the Ukraine and Germany who use their computers to counter Russian propaganda:
Sweden has launched a nationwide school program to teach students to identify Russian propaganda. …In Lithuania, 100 citizen cyber-sleuths dubbed “elves” link up digitally to identify and beat back the people employed on social media to spread Russian disinformation. They call the daily skirmishes “Elves vs. Trolls” (above) ….Consortiums such as StopFake.org, about Ukraine, and Correctiv.org in Germany have sped up fact-checking with new digital tools and with cross-border journalistic partnerships. ….
