Every year at the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, there is a celebration of Reagan on or around his birthday. Reagan supporters and champions have had an unfettered ability to celebrate his presidency and his "legacy".
We say that the legacy of his presidency is chaos in Central America and the emergence of the great economic inequality between the 99% and the 1% in the United States.
The current situation at the border, and the caravans of refugees coming up through Mexico are a result of the violence and chaos that the Reagan Wars against poor Central American farmers created.
American Imperialism is nothing to be celebrated.
We will vigil outside of the ceremony with signs to Renounce Reagan, Reparations for U.S. War Victims in Central America, U.S. Wars Cause U.S. Immigration, etc....Any other groups who resist the whitewashing of the "Reagan Legacy", and who would like to participate in this vigil, are welcome. Please let us know if you would like to sign on as Endorsers, and RSVP!
**There is annual photo and print coverage of this birthday event for Reagan. if we are out there with our message to Renounce the Reagan Legacy, there will finally be a counter message!
