Napa County Protest against Pelosi "corruption" on Saturday
When Nancy Pelosi holds some private meetings on Saturday, opponents to her left will be holding signs and shouting slogans calling the secret meetings evidence of corruption. The newly-formed Napa County Central Committee of the Peace and Freedom Party is sponsoring the demonstration in front of Pelosi's own hotel, the Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford, Napa County, to protest meetings House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will hold there with business leaders.
In her San Francisco district, Pelosi has an opponent from the Peace and Freedom Party, labor activist Gloria La Riva. La Riva has been pointing out that while Pelosi claims to be pro-labor, and has succeeded in receiving funding from some labor groups, Pelosi and her husband own a winery, the Piatti restaurant chain, and the very hotel in which she will be meeting business leaders, and all of them are 100% non-union.
Protesters will meet in front of the Auberge du Soleil, 180 Rutherford Hill Road, Rutherford, at 11:00 AM on Saturday, August 14. They will have signs and leaflets referring to the extensive corporate holdings of Pelosi and her husband, her close relationships with corporate lobbyists, and her actions in Congress that have benefited her own family holdings as well as other corporations.
