Join Our Weekly Street Corner Protest Against Harkey, Issa, and Trump!
Join us every Thursday, starting Aug. 2 through Election Day
Encinitas Blvd. & El Camino Real MAP
5:00 - 6:00 PM
Encinitas Street Corner Protests are an opportunity for our neighbors to stand together and peacefully exercise our first amendment rights. We have stood together and protested our opposition to Congressman Darrell Issa’s continued alignment with the GOP agenda and Trump’s regressive and authoritarian policies. Together with our sisters and brothers in California’s 49th Congressional district who have come together under the umbrella of the Flip The 49th organization, our actions have forced Darrell Issa to retire.
We are resuming Thursday protests starting on August 2, and will continue them until Election Day, November 6. Until then, Issa is still our Member of Congress and is answerable to us, his constituents. Issa’s hand-picked successor, Diane Harkey, has not stood up and denounced Trump’s erratic and arguably treasonous behavior (see Sen. John McCain’s statement). Encinitas Unity will continue to partner with Indivisible 49th to rally community support against Harkey and Trump with the goal of "flipping the 49th" Congressional District and voting in Mike Levin.
Darrell Issa and the GOP discounted our protests as "paid" efforts to negatively impact their party’s efforts. Our local Street Corner Protests prove members within our community are volunteers standing up and making their voices heard.
Please come join us every Thursday evening at 5:00 pm with your signs, friends, neighbors and family members. This is a family-friendly protest.
NOTE: We CANNOT park in the Ralph's/Discount Tire lot- we will be ticketed and or towed! Plan to park on the street over on Turner Ave or on Camino De Las Flores.
