Viral Expansion of Airport Protests Spread Across America

It started with a handful in NYC and now has spread to over 25 airports throughout the nation. Sorry for the second post in a day, but we need good news. I am near tears, not out of fear of Trump (for once) but out of pride for America’s response. NY Times reports that Trump may be buckling. We can do this.

A Handful show up

A few dozen folks showed up at JFK in NYC and within hours the crowd grew into the thousands. This morning around 7, I got an email about how now the protest was speading to Philadelphia today. By 9 I got an email with the list of over 25 airports across the country that were having protests. A few minutes later, a report from the NYTs that Trump may be buckling. This must continue happening. He may still get his way, but we are galvanizing a nation. Justice will prevail.

    • See above Morty. Call your friends and head to the ABQ Sunport, bring signs, tweet and Facebook photos. Create a Facebook event page and invite others. Tell the press and in a few hours, there will be hundreds at the airport. With all the friends you guys have there would be thousands there.
