Overpass Light Brigade has a number of actions coming up, starting on Monday, Feb 24th, from 5:30 to 7 in Hillcrest with a trans* rights rally by Canvass for a Cause at Sixth and University following the announcement of the status of a transphobic referendum initiative to repeal a new law signed into law by the governor, Assembly Bill 1266, protecting rights to ensure that transgender public school students are able to participate in sports and other activities and use school facilities based on their gender identity. If enough signatures were submitted, Californians would vote on the referendum in November.
The following evening, Feb 25th from 7 to 8:30 PM, there will be a candlelight vigil by GMO-Free Orange County with a light brigade message "OMG GMO GMA = EVIL" to help provide a welcoming committee for the powerful Grocery Manufacturers Association arrival at the Laguna Niguel Ritz-Carlton hotel and to let them know that it is NOT OK for them to dictate what's in OUR food supply, on Pacific Coast Highway and Ritz Carlton Drive, at their arrival at a conference put on by high powered attorneys focusing on:
- Introducing a watered down GMO labeling bill on the federal level
