Californians, Let Us Know in the Comments if You're Going to Be There. What's Going on in Your State That Requires Protest Rallies?
Their website has also arranged for buses from all over California. Places as far away as San Diego and Los Angeles. Check out their ride board and buy a ticket, STAT.From the Don't Frack California's website:
After months of showing up to all of Governor Brown’s public events, lobbying legislators, delivering over 100,000 public comments, and even dropping a banner during his state of the state two weeks ago, it’s time to show up in force.
On March 15th, with our friends at Californians Against Fracking, we’ll be joining thousands of folks from all over the state in Sacramento to make sure that Governor Brown can’t ignore us.
We’re experiencing the worst drought in recorded history in California. Communities are struggling to figure out where their water will be coming from in the coming dry months. Governor Brown’s administration’s solution? To call for conservation from his citizens, and not from big oil and gas.
On Saturday, March 15th, we’ll be making sure Governor Brown and his administration hears us loud and clear: Climate leaders don’t frack!
Bring your friends and family. We need YOU there.
After the protest ends, we'll also be heading over to a local watering hole. Meet us at KBar at 1000 K Street, a couple of short blocks north of the Capitol building.

About 20 Kossacks showed up by the time everyone arrived with two new Kossacks (since mid-November) and five people attending their first meet-up. L.A. is making progress!
Here's one photo:

Next event will be the LAKossacks rolling out the red carpet for out-of-towner Shanikka on March 15th for lunch! Venue will be announced soon.
roberb7, who is the organizer of the newly formed Daily Kos Group Mexican Kossacks, provides a well-written recap of the recent Democrats Abroad event in Puerto Vallarta. Tom Hayden, a member of the California State Assembly for 18 years, was the guest speaker.
While GreyHawk had many Kossacks sign up to attend his lunch and museum event, some had to cancel at the last minute because of a large snow storm rolling in. Four intrepid souls managed to attend: GreyHawk, HawkWife, Knockbally and deltadoc. I've always said that even two Kossacks is a meet-up and a very worthwhile one.
GreyHawk and his attendees pulled together a terrific re-cap diary with each person's written perspective and all the photos each Kossacks took of the snow and food pr0n. It's a fun diary and a great example of one way to document these meatspace events.
There's only one photo of some of the Kossacks who attended. So I'm going to post one of mine I took of GreyHawk and HawkWife when I met them in Providence at NN12.

I'm so impressed with the Seattle Kossacks, right now. EagleOfFreedom offered to take up the reins of collecting local Kossacks for camaraderie and action. In a very short time he started the group, communicated with me, set the event and got almost a dozen folks to join the ranks in person. Kudos!
So, you Seattle Kossacks, you've got a group now and John Crapper has offered to be an admin of the group. How swell is that?
SEATTLE KOSSACKS! Look for each other in the comments and gather together, invite one another and let's see more folk show up at the next event. AND the next action event.
Once again Kossacks prove they are for real.
