Thank you

Thank you to Dave Ish and Club Lemeno for providing valuable Texting Services to keep our human fonts up to date for the San Diego events.

Thank you to Indivisible San Diego and San Francisco for their support.

Thank you to Aaron Townsend of Satellite Inc for the video editing.
Thank you to Paul Emus of Emus Communications for the San Diego drone footage, and to Inti Fernandez for the San Francisco drone footage.
Thank you videographer Stefan Ruenzel and pilot John DuGan of Bay Aerial Helicopter Tours for going up and getting this incredible San Francisco footage.

Thank you to the O.B. Rag in San Diego for the coverage and moral support.

Do you remember that kick to the gut on Election night in 2016. Waking up the next day in a state of shock and despair.
Do you remember the elation as WE gathered together at the Women's March and all the marches since, knowing that WE were not alone, that while things looked bleak WE knew that WE would prevail and WE would be stronger for it.
Now WE must take that solidarity and GET OUT THE VOTE! WE must continue our resistance!
WE are already seeing the results, in Pennsylvania and Georgia special elections, Republican incumbents dropping out, a "too close to call" Senatorial race in Red State Texas. A new wave of women and minority candidates across the nation.
WE must not lose our momentum, WE still have much to do, WE must GET OUT THE VOTE!
WE must take back Congress, WE must oust those who are bought and paid for by the NRA.
For so many reasons, our children's future, for the future of our planet, WE must GET OUT THE VOTE!

The Beginning


Brad Newsham

Zombie Times


In October 2006, Brad Newsham threw himself into the movement to impeach US President George Bush and Vice-President Dick Cheney.  Many Americans, including Newsham, passionately believe that the Bush administration should be held accountable for its misconduct in office.

Early on the clear, calm morning of January 6, 2007 Newsham and a crew of volunteers outlined the message "IMPEACH!" in 100-foot letters that stretched for 400 feet across the sands of San Francisco's Ocean Beach.

This was just the first of many  human banner organized by Brad Newsham.

Human Banner Central

In mid February 2017 a friend of Mike James, Deanna Polk, shared a post on Facebook of a  human banner that had been organized by Brad Newsham on the sands of Ocean Beach San Francisco. As activists and general hell raisers in the community of Ocean Beach San Diego for decades, Deanna suggested to Mike that we they could do this.

Mike inspired by the Woman's March and the Resistance movement took on the challenge and within 3 weeks, on March 4th 2017 successfully organized 2 human banners. Resist and Impeach.

In order to accomplish the event he worked with Brad Newsham and was further inspired by his story.

When he saw Brad had planned another human banner for April 2018 in San Francisco to Get Out the Vote, Mike jumped at the chance to create a banner simultaneously in San Diego.

Mike created this website and Facebook page to share past and human banners efforts.
