American Resistance Sevilla invites you to our
Pub Gathering & Prep for Women's March
Thursday, January 11, 8:30 pm.
Merchant Pub, Calle Canalejas, 12
Let's raise a glass together while we discuss the final details of Seville's Women's March,
which is coming up on Saturday, January 20.
We'll provide poster-making materials for you to take home.
No, we're not going to sit around in the pub drinking and lettering posters;
that's a road to disaster, or at least sloppy spelling and beer-stained placards!
And We Will Celebrate the Publication of Karen's New Book
Women of the American Resistance:
You Are the One We Have Been Waiting For
Now out on Kindle and paperback — and all revenues
from book sales are going to Planned Parenthood
in the name of anti-choice White House officials.
If you're seeking inspiration, practical tips on sign-making, or ideas for dressing up your dog for the march, check out Karen's post: Protesting 101: Ten Essential Tips for the Women's March.

There is a LOT of noise out there.
