ONE BILLION RISING

The Gloucester Coalition for the Prevention of Domestic Abuse, Strong Men Don’t Bully, HAWC, the YWCA North Shore Rape Crisis Center, and the City of Gloucester invite you to join

ONE BILLION RISING TO STOP VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND GIRLS. RISE IN SOLIDARITY AND JOIN THE GLOBAL CAMPAIGN!

On Wednesday February 14, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. at City Hall, Gloucester will join with activists from around the world for ONE BILLION RISING, the largest action in the history of V-Day, the global activist movement to bring an end to violence against women and girls.

Featuring women’s rights activists Megan Wolf, Gloucester recording artist and Laura Crook, Actor, Writer, Survivor.

ONE BILLION RISING began as a call to action based on the statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion this adds up to more than one billion girls and women.

On February 14, Mayor Sefatia Romeo-Theken will lead our cry for justice, and our resolution that Gloucester will not look the other way, and that we will continue to seek justice for victims and survivors of abuse.

Mayor Sefatia Romeo-Theken notes: “This year more than ever, we join millions of women, girls and men around the world to demand an end to sexual assault and domestic violence. Here in Gloucester, as in many other communities of the U.S. we have been reviewing and strengthening our workplace procedures to assure sexual harassment is prevented. Please join us. ONE BILLION RISING is your opportunity to break the silence and speak out to express outrage at the number of girls and women who endure these injustices.”

WE WILL NOT BE SILENT ABOUT ABUSE Bring pots, pans and noisemakers to demand change DEMAND JUSTICE FOR WOMEN AND GIRLS City Hall February 14, 2017 at 3:00 p.m.

It’s never going to sink in is it? ARGHHHHHH!!!!!

I should really just submit and resign myself that there are people that no matter what you do or say or how many times it’s repeated, they will refuse to use a search engine.

Need to get me one of those LMGTFY T Shirts, baseball caps and whatever other products they come up with.  If they have a car wrap I’ll buy one of those too.

Hi Joey

Thnx so much!

Response:

No it was posted three times.  a search would provide the links

there is a search box and there is also google.

might i suggest the search terms one billion rising and goodmorninggloucester.

Here are the results 

There are no less than 5 results.

Now the thing that really tends to get me going more than having to point out that search engines exists is that when you suggest that search engines exist to most people, they seem genuinely indignant and feel like you are singling them out for being a dummy.

I should note that this is not the case with the person who sent me this email who I am sure is a very lovely person.

This note to those who refuse to use search engines –

GOOGLE- PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD- TAKE ONE MINUTE OF YOUR LIFE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO POINT YOUR BROWSER IN THE DIRECTION OF GOOGLE AND TYPE IN YOUR SEARCH QUERY.

WEBMASTERS AROUND THE GLOBE WILL REJOICE- THE WORLD WILL BE A BETTER PLACE!

I MAY PLAN MY OWN ONE BILLION RISING EVENT TO RAISE AWARENESS OF PEOPLE WHO REFUSE TO USE SEARCH ENGINES.

*note: If this email was a joke in response to last week’s post linked below then I hope you burn in hell.

How much could I charge for a seminar to teach people how to look for things on the internet using a search engine?
