The January 6 Hearings Will Not Be Enough, In the Name of Humanity We Must Make Real Our Pledge to Refuse a Fascist America
By Coco Das

But there is no expectation of any real accountability. Stopping fascism is going to require more than lifting one finger to vote.

Presentation from Andy Zee at the panel discussion “Why did 74 million people vote for Trump? What is the danger and what do we do about it?”
Trump has cohered diverse reactionary and fascist movements that predated his regime into a force that has now tasted power, is embedded in key institutions especially the courts, and that lives and seethes in its own conspiracy laden universe of victimization that will propel an aggreived revanchism. This is a movement that is not going away. – READ ANDY ZEE’S PRESENTATION

What is Refuse Fascism?
RefuseFascism.org was initiated on an emergency basis in the wake of the election of Trump and Pence in 2016. Our founding mission called on all who recognized the catastrophic danger of the Trump/Pence regime to unite and organize to drive the regime out of power through sustained, non-violent mass protest. We pledged to the world that we would not stand aside while there was still a chance to stop a regime that imperiled humanity and the earth itself. With our slogan: In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America! And our single unifying demand: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
This Pledge to the People of the World, initiated by Refuse Fascism, appeared in the New York Times on November 9, 2020
