Rally for a #FairWorkWeek and Fast Food Worker Empowerment
Friday, March 3, 2017, 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Eastern, City Hall

“Everyone needs to plan their time to balance work, family and education. But last minute scheduling practices endemic in the fast food industry prevent fast food workers from planning theirs. It’s time for a #FairWorkWeek NOW! They also need the ability to form their own nonprofit organization to fight for their rights and improve their communities.”

People’s March for Education Justice
Saturday, March 4, 2017, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Eastern, Trump International Hotel

“As we continue to defend public education from federal attacks by Donald Trump and Betsy DeVos, we march to defend [education] here in New York from Governor Andrew Cuomo. The public investment he proposes in his education budget this year is woefully inadequate and falls way short of being equitable. … Black, brown, immigrant, refugee, low-income, LGBTQIA, English language learners, homeless students and students with disabilities are worthy of an investment that will meet their needs not deny them opportunities to be successful.”

NY March 4 Trump Rally
Saturday, March 4, 2017, 12 p.m. to 3 p.m., Trump Tower, 725 5th Avenue

“Donald Trump was scheduled to return to NYC for the first time since the inauguration; but of course he chickened out, knowing that we prefer New York City WITHOUT HIM! We are certain that his absence will not stop the trumpalumpas from continuing with their March 4 Trump rally in support of him this Saturday, so we still want to make a strong showing in a counter protest at Trump Tower.”

March 4th for Standing Rock
Saturday, March 4, 2017, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern, New York Public Library, 42nd Street and 5th Avenue

#ICancelledYouNetflix

(Credit goes to the talented @a-womans-courage. This is beautiful and inspiring. Thank you for allowing me to use this)

In light of Netflix’ blatant disregard to our efforts to bring back Sense8, as well as the dismissive announcement they made yesterday, I believe the time has come for members of the fandom to collectively cancel their Netflix subscriptions.

If all Netflix cares about is profit, then we’ll hit them where it hurts. If Netflix cares about quantity rather than quality, then they don’t deserve our money.

So, let’s start a mass cancellations campaign and maybe Netflix will finally realise how serious we are.

When?
Tomorrow June 10th at the below times 

(I used the same time frames used for other Twitter campaigns to avoid confusion)

9AM Pacific - United States.

11AM Colombia + Mexico City.

12PM Eastern - United States + Toronto

1PM São Paulo

5PM United Kingdom.

6PM Spain + Germany + France + Italy + Netherlands.

What do we do?

  1. Cancel our Netflix subscriptions and, if possible, take a screenshot of it.
  2. Share your screenshot on Twitter with the # ICancelledYouNetflix. Please remember to use only ONE hashtag and to @ Netflix.
Please reblog so as many people as possible can see this.I will post this on Twitter as well. Come find me @ max_riemelts_me and RT. 
Thank you!!
Let’s deliver a message, Sensies. Netflix cancels Sense8, we cancel Netflix.

Erfurt Fussgängerzone. Erfurt is the capital of the state of Thüringen in Eastern Germany. It was an important trading town during the Middle Ages, and has many beautiful old buildings and parks. The city center is quite compact so walking is the best way to explore. As in most German towns, regular tram services run all around the city, with service intervals of at least every 10 mins for most of the day. Trams are less frequent in the evenings. Night buses are available throughout the night to bring you home after midnight. They run once or twice every hour and meet at the heart of the city center (Anger) or depart from the train station.
