Greet Mike Pence as he visits Dairyland Power Co-op. As the head of the Coronavirus Task Force campaigns, Pence has done nothing - more than 190,000 Americans have died from the virus, including more than 1,000 essential health care providers, there's no plan for universal testing, PPE is still being hijacked by the trump administration to favor political cronies, and there's no end in sight to the COVID-19 devastation.
10:30 a.m. 3200 East Ave. S. DO NOT PARK IN DAIRYLAND LOT. Park near Marcus Cinema or The Village shopping center and take the #4 bus to tha site. PEACEFUL protest with masks and distancing.
Our Wisconsin Revolution-La Crosse Chapter and Citizen Action of Wisconsin Driftless Coop are honored to partner with "The Free" and other local activists and organizers to send Vice President Pence a peaceful message that La Crosse is a community of Love, not Hate.

President Donald Trump has likened himself to a war time president during this time of pandemic. He has appointed Vice President Mike Pence to chair the National Coronavirus Task Force. During this time of crises
Vice President Pence has ignored the recommendations of scientists and public health experts. He has not acted swiftly in the provision of personal protective devises for health care workers nor development of national policy for masking, social distancing, and contact tracing. And he has opened the economy prematurely, more concerned for business profit than life itself. That hubris has caused tens of thousands of needless deaths and suffering--all for political gain and profit.
If, as described by President Trump, this is "war time," then Vice President Pence and this administration should be charged with war time crimes against humanity in the court of public opinion and voted out of office for the good of the United States and humanity. - Irving Balto (unable to attend the rally due to health issues)
