I am pleased to announce an important new section of Yabberz.
The new Indivisible - Resist section and topic category is dedicated to stories from the front lines of grassroots Trump Resistance. As we all know, just last week we all witnessed the very real impact of these actions stopping TrumpCare dead in its tracks.
Here is what the Indivisible newsletter had to say about how grassroots activism made this happen:
Your relentless constituent pressure ensured that TrumpCare was deeply unpopular before it was even introduced. That unpopularity made it easy for the far-right Republicans to oppose the bill. Ryan and Trump needed those far-right votes, so they tried to offer more extreme concessions to win them over. Those extreme concessions spooked the purple-state Republicans, who started to bolt. Why? Because of intense pressure from their constituents (i.e. YOU). Suddenly, the bill was losing votes from both the far-right and the purple-state Republicans. In a matter of days, the congressional coalition behind Trump’s top legislative priority simply collapsed. TrumpCare was toast.
TrumpCare was terrible, but terrible legislation passes all the time. The difference this time was that you were organized and determined. You mounted a sustained, nationwide resistance that broke the will of the Republican caucus and derailed Trump’s agenda. Politics is the art of the possible, and you changed what was possible. You stood indivisible and it worked—and people will literally live longer, healthier lives as a result
Whether the story is your own personal action, that of a group you participate in, or a news report of activism, this section is the go to place to see how we are all Indivisible.
I also took this opportunity to rename the core news section to "Just News", and will be adding more sections and enhancing their landing pages as discussed in recent posts.
Here is a screen shot of where to find it:
