Democracy Lives in Truth: March & Rally to Protect Democracy (Bangor)
March 11, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Come rise up for democracy!
Join us to demand that our U.S. Senators and Congressional Reps call for:
-a thorough investigation entirely independent of the White House & Congress into Trump campaign contacts with Russian intelligence,
-removal of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General – recusal is not enough, he must resign, be dismissed or be impeached.
We will meet at West Market Square near Congressman Bruce Poliquin‘s Bangor office. We will march to the Unitarian Universalist Society of Bangor, 120 Park Street, where we will hear from local groups organizing to protect democracy and resist authoritarianism about upcoming actions and ways to plug in and have your voice heard.
Democracy Lives in Truth co-sponsors are:
Mainers For Accountable Leadership, Indivisible: Bangor, Standing For The Common Good, Bangor Racial and Economic Justice Coalition, Food AND Medicine Peace and Justice Center
-If your group would like to be added as a cosponsor please contact the event organizers listed below.
U.S. Senator Susan Collins and Senator Angus S. King, Jr., have both stated that they support the Senate Intelligence Committee investigation into Trump/Russia ties. However, the chair of that committee has publicly stated that he coordinated with the White House to quash media coverage of the ties. Chellie Pingree has called for an independent investigation. Congressman Bruce Poliquin has made no statement whatsoever on this critical issue.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from his department’s investigation into Trump/Russia ties after it was revealed that he met with the Russian Ambassador during the campaign and failed to report this meeting during his confirmation hearing. He commited perjury and cannot be the nation’s top attorney. He must step down or be removed. U.S. Senator Susan Collins enthusiastically supported Jeff Sessions’ appointment as Attorney General. Senator Angus S. King, Jr. voted NO on Sessions’ confirmation.
