14] – NOBODY IS ABOVE THE LAW. This is a MUELLER FIRING RAPID RESPONSE. Trump is publicly considering firing special counsel Robert Mueller, the person leading the Department of Justice investigation of possible illegal actions by members of his presidential campaign, and the efforts to conceal those activities. This would be a constitutional crisis for our country. It would demand an immediate and unequivocal response to show that we will not tolerate abuse of power from Donald Trump.
If Mueller is fired BEFORE 2 PM local time —> events will begin @ 5 PM local time. If Mueller is fired AFTER 2 PM local time —> events will begin @ noon local time the following day. This is our moment to stand up to protect our democracy. Let's mobilize to show that we won't let Donald Trump become the authoritarian that he aspires to be. The law applies to all of us, and it's essential that it also applies. If the firing happens, meet at the Baltimore City Hall, 100 Holliday St., Baltimore 21202.

18] – On Wed., Dec. 27 from 7 to 8:30 PM, the DC Study Group will explore Latin America Rises Up Against The Right Wing, hosted by Party for Socialism and Liberation – PSL at 617 Florida Ave. NW, WDC 20001-1852. In recent days in Honduras and Argentina, spontaneous and organized demonstrations of working and poor people have been raging against the latest in a long history of right wing neoliberal attacks on social guarantees and the sovereignty of the peoples of Latin America.
What role does the U.S. government play in these developing situations? How do socialists understand the underlying economic issues? How can the people fight back -- and win? PSL Socialism Study Group is a space for progressive people interested in socialism to come together and learn about world history and current events with like-minded people.

19] – On Thurs., Dec. 28 from 5 to 8 PM see how Women in Black are in a sneak preview of NONUMENT0::The McKeldin Fountain 1, Baltimore’s first ‘augmented reality monument,’ at an information night fundraiser, hosted by D-Center Baltimore at 22 W. North Ave. A peace mug in honor of Women In Black will be a donation giveaway at the event. The film will create a virtual memorial to the brutalist architectural fountain being demolished in downtown Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. An augmented reality version of the destroyed fountain will be created with 3D model, video, animations, stories and historical information. Viewers will hold up a smartphone or tablet like a protest sign in order to see the lost fountain, hear the waterfalls and nearly forgotten stories from the past 35 years. Sound scores and first-hand stories will remember Occupy Baltimore, the Black Lives Matter movement and protests in the wake of the death of Freddie Gray in the hands of Baltimore Police, the National Guard on the site, Women in Black, controversial comedians, a marriage proposal, artists using soap bubbles, mermaid performances and many other personal, poetic and political stories imbued with frailty in this tenuous free speech zone.
