Need a Ride to the Anti-Minutemen Actions at the Border This Weekend? We need Drivers too!

People from all over the region have been organizing for the Sep. 16-18 action
against the Minutemen, the goal of which is to directly shut down their operations. Need a ride to the action at the border? The Bay Area Coalition to Fight the Minutemen is organizing minivans leaving from San Francisco on Thursday (Sep. 15) and on Friday (Sep. 16). Reserve your space (ASAP!) by emailing: stoptheminutemen (at)
At least two minivans will be leaving Thursday, Sept. 15, at 10 PM, from 16th
and Capp (in between Mission & Van Ness; a block from 16th & Mission BART) in
SF. They will leave San Diego at some point on Monday (to be decided by those
in the vans, but they need to be returned by Tuesday at 8 PM to SFO).

A car or minivan will be leaving Friday, Sept. 16, at 10 PM from 16th and Capp
in SF. It will leave San Diego at some point on Sunday to arrive in time for
people to go to work on Monday.

The cost is $45 per person (this is to cover the really high price of gas and
renting the minivans).
It is sliding scale, and we have some funds set aside to help out those who
can't afford the whole price.

We need to know by TUESDAY at NOON if you are coming. If you are going, please
email stoptheminutemen (at) stating: a) what day you are leaving; b) if
you will be making the round trip or arranging other transportation to get
back; c) if you can pay the $45, or how much you can contribute; d) if you are
reserving a spot just for yourself or for other people as well.

Ideal candidates (based on the qualifications of the van rental service)
are: at least 25 years old; have a good driving record; have a credit card or a
debit card with a Visa or Mastercard symbol. I believe the vans are scheduled
to be picked up from San Francisco Airport at 8 PM.

We need two drivers per vehicle and it would be great if both drivers met the
qualifications and can be present to pick up the vehicle. Right now we have 1
driver, period. Please volunteer ASAP by emailing: stoptheminutemen (at)
