Look what happens when you email lots of people about a solidarity action happening in your area for Iranian protesters and democracy. You sometimes find what you're looking for. From SFist.com:
Hey there, did you know Iran is having some sort of brouhaha, and Twitter will single-handedly bring democracy, sunshine and gumdrops to the nation? Or something like that? Anyway, reader and activist Michael Petrelis writes SFist to ask the following. Ahem:I'll be there, wearing a long, lime green scarf I snapped up at a thrift store yesterday. Hope to see you tonight at Union Square.Please don't tell me SF ain't planning nothing over the Iranian election. Are you aware of any solidarity stuff and will you post info; where, when, etc?
Also, on June 19 there will be a San Francisco fundraiser for Gay Iraqi refugees, who are being systematically murdered by the government. And there will be cosmo and martini specials too!
It's in the Castro at Cafe Flore, Friday, June 19. Go here for further details.Update:There will be a demonstration tonight at 6 p.m. - 9 p.m., San Francisco Union Square.
