    VOTING RIGHTS BILLS UNDER ATTACK ON MLK DAY…AND A PLAN TO FIGHT BACK


     
    On Martin Luther King Day we confront the horrendous blitzkrieg against voting rights and the future of American democracy.
     
    At this GREEP ZOOM #79, we begin with the Ohio Supreme Court’s welcome overturn of a horrendous gerrymandering travesty.
     
    We get a report from MAYOR JENNIFER ROBERTS on the battle for voter rights in North Carolina and the work of the Carter Center.
     
    We hear about Wisconsin’s outrageous denial of drop boxes and the ability of voters to send in their ballots with family members.  
     
    We hear from JENNIFER TANNER, TATONKA BRICCA, WENDI LIEDERMAN and RON LEONARD about the attack on solar in CA, FL and throughout the country.
     
    We hear from MYLA RESON on the denial of democracy at the Pacifica Radio Network.
     
    Then the great Constitutional attorney JOEL SEGAL presents the idea of a Presidential Executive Order to implement the voting rights acts.  
     
    This extremely powerful, detailed, critically important discussion on how to preserve our democracy should not be missed.

    GETTING GRANULAR ON GRASSROOTS ELECTION PROTECTION WHILE WINNING ARIZONA
     
     
    Today’s GREEP zoom #78 features a smack-down focus on the nitty-gritty grassroots realities of getting into our election boards and making sure the Steve Bannon fascists don’t seize control of our democracy and burn it outright.
     
    With TATONKA BRICCA, DANNY SHEEHAN, RAY MCCLENDON, LORI PESANTE and many more, we dig deep into exactly what we need to do to stop the election apparatus from being stolen.
     
    We hear of great work being done in California, Georgia and elsewhere, with a clear eye toward what our focus must be for the coming year.
     
    We also hear from JOHN BRAKEY and RAY LUTZ about the culmination of their amazing work in Arizona.  
     
    This week's confirmation by the county of Maricopa and the state of Arizona that the grifter Cyber Ninjas demanding a pro-Trump recount were miles off-based is embodied in a 90+page report burying forever the idea that The Donald might’ve won that election.
     
    This powerful, content-laden exploration of what pro-democracy forces face in 2022 sets the stage for how our movement must work if we are to emerge with something other than a Bannonite dictatorship.  JOIN US!!!

    NUKES COLLAPSING IN EUROPE WHILE RENEWABLES RISE EVERYWHERE


    We’re joined by the great LINDA PENCE GUNTER from Beyond Nuclear to celebrate the rapid demise of atomic power in Germany. 

    On December 31, 2021, Germany shut three of its remaining six reactors; the last three will shut December 31, 2022.

    This means the world’s fourth-largest economy will be totally nuke free.

    Meanwhile serious cracks in at least four French reactors threaten to shut that nation’s electricity supply in the midst of a very cold winter.

    Worldwide as the epic failure of atomic power worsens, we see a massive rise in renewables.

    From California the great TATONKA BRICCA tells us of the Green movement to completely convert the Golden State to 100% renewables.

    But the fossil/nuclear industry is doing all it can to shut the spread of rooftop solar, which employs upwards of 50,000 and is providing cheap, safe, clean reliable energy statewide.

    Tatonka also updates us on the critical move to make California a true democracy with protected election boards and transparent redistricting.

    Don’t miss this critical discussion of true democracy in both energy and the ballot box.

    CRACKS IN FRENCH NUKES & ATTACKS ON SOLAR POWER

    We’re joined by the great LINDA SEELEY of the legendary San Luis Obispo MOTHERS FOR PEACE who fills us in on the latest battles at Diablo Canyon. 

    The two California nukes are scheduled to shut in 2024 and 2025, but in a fit of major insanity the Biden Administration is now lobbying to keep them open. 

    Linda updates us on the endless and worsening problems facing these two incredibly dangerous nukes.

    RON LEONARD then fills us in on all the latest developments in the solar industry and the fossil/nuke attempts to kill it.

    Solar taxes and other scams are being thrown at the solar industry by utility companies fearful of losing their monopolies.

    Slave labor and other issues have seeped in from China.

    But prices continue to drop and the industry seems to be holding its own….for now!

    JOEL SEGAL introduces the magnificent concept of a VOTING RIGHTS SUMMER in which millions of young people would convene to save our electoral system from the fascist Trump/Bannon blitzkrieg.

    We also hear from JULIE LEVINE about the horrifying dangers of 5G and what we need to stop it.

    We start with the great JENNIFER ROBERTS, former two-term mayor of Charlotte, NC.  Jennifer is a world-class pioneer in Election Protection, green power and much more.

    JENNIFER'S affiliation with the CARTER CENTER is a hugely important expansion of the reach of Election Protection and the future of our democracy.

    She provides us with a detailed examination of many key power points relating to all we need to know about America’s balloting

    We’re then joined by Ann Arbor’s BRIAN STEINBERG, whose grassroots fundraising and organizing has made a huge difference in outcomes in Michigan, Georgia and elsewhere.

    Brian’s pioneer work in funding relational organizing has been extremely important, as his dissection of the use of Constitutional amendment referenda throughout the US.

    Former Ohio organizer PAUL RYDER joins us to dissect the impact MILITARY POLICY has had on the careers of American presidents such as John Kennedy, Richard Nixon and Joe Biden.

    We then hear briefly about the impact of undersea www activity on marine mammals (we will return to this next week).

    And then we visit the case of JULIAN ASSANGE, REALITY WINNER, LEONARD PELTIER and other political prisoners.

    It’s a critical hour, filled with cutting edge stuff.  Don’t miss us!!!
