ACT UP Mting 7pm Mo., July 16, LGBT Center - Organizing for International AIDS Conference

Put AIDS Back in the Headline: Protest Tu., July 24 in DC

 

Dear Friends,

In the wake of the successful organizing for the Financial Transaction Tax (Robin Hood Tax) on April 25th, and the timely Pride March theme of HIV Criminalization we have the opportunity to take these projects and others to a much wider audience.

In late July tens-of-thousands will attend the International AIDS Conference in Washington DC. As is usually the case the media will swarm the conference for the latest news about the epidemic. ACT UP and other AIDS organizations will have an unparalleled opportunity to project our demands for Universal Access to AIDS medications, full funding for AIDS Care and elimination of HIV criminalization and stigma. This is part of our plan to inject AIDS into the presidential campaign.

Mobilization to End AIDS, Tues. July 24, Washington DC


But to do so we must be organized. Join ACT UP every Monday until the AIDS conference*, at 7pm for an organizing meeting where we can plan our participation. Especially important is the mass day of action on Tuesday  July 24th as we mobilize what may be the largest AIDS demonstration in US history. We are planning on bringing buses to the conference. The demonstration will have 5 wings, all meeting at one point at the end of the march. At tonight's meeting you'll be able to sign up to come on the bus to Washington DC on Tuesday July 24th.
