[Owasp-leaders] Meetup.com goes Deep Politcal

Until recently meetup.com has catered to and been used by people of a 
wide diversity of backgrounds. Now they have turned their organization 
into an political movement that is sure to disenfranchise a large chunk 
of the OWASP community.   It's no longer appropriate for OWASP to have a 
relationship with an organization that is politically biased and 
offensive to people that disagree with their political views, or don't 
want to support the political agenda.  On the meetup home at the bottom 
is floating panel with a link to https://www.meetup.com/pro/resist/

How can we sever our relationship with meetup?  I know I recently got an 
email saying my account was expiring and asking me to pay the $50 meetup 
membership fee.  I won't pay it!
