Need RC Volunteers in Mountain View

BAHN需要找Mountain View的反RC(租控)义工。BAHN的组委们希望能在尽量多的城市进行反RC活动,但几个义工组委精力实在有限,需要当地地主配合。 MV义工需要 1)愿意为大家服务,抵制RC, 2)肯抽时间关注MV的RC动向,并和大家分享, 3)组织大家参加会议,抗议RC。 希望当地有更多的人愿意站出来,BAHN的其它城市的义工会配合帮助你们工作。如果没有人愿意出来做义工,那BAHN将解读为大家在这个城市没有足够的利益。所以在找到合适人选之前,BAHN 恐怕只能忍痛把MV 当作非重点,只进行一般性的关注了。...Read more →
