MoveOn, the NAACP, Working Families Party and other national organizations are organizing #SaveThePostOffice Saturday, which asks Americans nationwide to show up at post offices across the country at 11:00 AM on Saturday, August 22, to save the post office from Trump and declare that Postmaster General Louis DeJoy must resign.

Here in Aurora (population 1,000), 8 of us (7 adults, 1 child) held an hour-long demonstration near the USPS site along state Route 99E. Even on a pandemic Saturday, there was a lot of traffic. From the passing cars, pick-ups, 18-wheelers, RVs and motorcycles, we counted 1 thumbs-down, 1 raised middle finger and 1 shout of “Trump 2020”. We lost count of how many thumbs-up, “V” peace signs, hang-10 gestures, friendly waves, honked horns and shouts of “you go” that we got.
One more reason to Vote Blue on November 3. Vote Biden/Harris to safeguard, among other pillars of our democracy, the Post Office.
