"Can Grassroots Activism Help Close Santa Monica Airport and Defeat "Prop D" Deceptive Ballot Initiative?"  
to be the theme at the Activist Support Circle's
Public Forum
Wednesday, October 29 - 7:00 PM
Friends Meeting Hall located at 1440 Harvard Street in Santa Monica


Grassroots activism, organizing and voting to defeat "Prop D", the deceptive national general aviation interest- backed Santa Monica Airport (SMO) ballot initiative will be the topic of discussion at the Wednesday, October 29 Activist Support Circle public forum taking place from 7:00 PM until 9:00 PM at the Friends Meeting Hall located at 1440 Harvard Street in Santa Monica.


With less than a week from the Oct. 29 forum until the Nov. 4 election, speakers will emphasize the importance of a concerted community mobilization to defeat the deceptive "Prop D" initiative and pass the local control "Prop LC" initiative instead. Speakers will also discuss the ongoing public health and safety threats at SMO as well as the short and long term benefits of closing the poorly located airport when the FAA airport agreement with the City expires on July 1, 2015.


Speakers will include Martin Rubin, founder and director of Concerned Residents Against Airport Pollution (CRAAP), and Susan Hartley, former member of the Santa Monica Airport Commission.


The forum is free and free onsite parking is available. Light refreshments will be served at 6:30pm.


The Activist Support Circle is a support group for progressive activists that started in 2005 to help guard against activist burnout.
