One foot out the door
I filed and posted my update Saturday by 7 p.m., and left the house to bring Sayaka a charger so she could finish her livestream of the day’s peaceful protest that ended with a sit-down in the highway. Then I went out to bring her a battery pack and ended up live-streaming a fairly crazy night in downtown Greensboro. Both videos are in the link.
I’m on my way back out there as soon as I finish this. So forgive me if I seem rushed.
News? Shit, there’s a lot of it and it’s unfolding fast. What you need to know right now is that there’s a curfew in effect in Greensboro starting tonight at 8 p.m., running until 6 a.m., and it is in place until the mayor lifts it.
For tonight. gather your own news. Please be responsible.
