San Francisco Protest of Uber on February 9, 2017

Today I heard from Michael Stone about an upcoming protest to be held in San Francisco on Thursday, February 9, 2017 regarding Saudi women driving and Uber. His message is below. His message includes links - to sign a petition and learn about the event from the facebook page.

I have enjoyed some recent blog posts of yours regarding Saudi Women Drivers.

We thought you might be interested in an upcoming protest created by Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CODEPINK and author of Kingdom of the Unjust: Behind the U.S.-Saudi Connection.

On Thursday, 9 February, at 1pm, CODEPINK & supporters will deliver a petition signed by over four thousand people to Uber's San Francisco headquarters. The petition demands that CEO Travis Kalanick call on the King of Saudi Arabia to lift the ban on women driving!

We hope you write about the action! Thank you very much for all you do.
