Join an Organizers Task Force
It has been now just a little over two months of the Trump/Pence Regime. We have seen all the damage that they have done in just that short period of time and the fascist course they are moving on.
It is time to step up and say ever more powerfully:
Enough! Basta Ya!
In the Name of Humanity, We refuse to accept a Fascist America.
Drive out the Trump/Pence Regime.
Our Call to Action is being spread very broadly all over the country, making the case for this and popularizing the NO! everywhere. We are currently in the midst of a campaign to do this which needs to grow and have more impact to influence the mood and thinking of all those who anguish and those who are acting. Coming up very soon there are some major events being organized by a whole broad array of forces that promise to bring many hundreds of thousands into the streets and in protest in a concentrated 10 day period, between Saturday April 22 and Monday May 1.
*April 22 March for Science , Scientists and those who support science all over the country have called for a major march in Washington DC on April 22, with satellite protests being held in 427 places all over the world, 315 of them in the US.
*April 29 People’s Climate March, Climate, Jobs and Justice with a focus against the policies & actions of Trump/Pence that endanger the environment of the whole planet. Washington DC
*May 1 Many organizations including immigrants rights organizations, unions and student groups have called for protest marches and strikes in cities across the country, on the general theme of opposition to the attacks against immigrants.
All of these actions are in protest against very dire measures the Trump/Pence regime has taken, with grave danger for humanity. Having many thousands — hopefully millions — taking to the streets in this way in a concentrated period of time has the potential to build a more powerful mass force of opposition to the whole regime, drawing national and international attention to the dangers of this regime and the depth of opposition to it.
At the same time, many who will be protesting do not yet have the understanding that this is a fascist regime and that it is up to the people in their millions to unite on the single mission of driving them out now. These protests provide an opportunity, and a need, for Refuse Fascism to bring forward and organize many, many people to march under the banner of Refuse Fascism, to influence the people in the protests, and those concerned with these issues with the understanding of Refuse Fascism.
To accomplish that, it is very important for all those who see the fascist danger of this regime to join with these efforts and strengthen their impact by bringing our message to them, manifested in a powerful way .
You are needed:
Refuse Fascism is calling on everyone to get involved and to make our efforts as effective and powerful as possible. There are millions who are horrified at what Trump/Pence represent and are looking for a way to act. We need hundreds to reach out to thousands, to impact millions. To that end, we are organizing national task forces to coordinate our efforts, and provide ways that will facilitate mass participation.
If you are interested in participating in one of the task forces focused on relating to either the Science March, the Climate March or May 1st actions, we would like to hear from you right away. We would like to know something about you including where you are, in what ways you would like to contribute, and if you have particular connections to or knowledge of people or organizations who are already involved, or that should be approached by Refuse Fascism. We need to pull these Task Forces during the week of March 27.
April 24 is Holocaust Remembrance Day, It has been proposed that Refuse Fascism reach out to others and unite for mass actions on that day that not only remember the horrors of the Hitler Regime that destroyed the lives of millions of Jewish people, but to draw the lessons from that experience and make a powerful national manifestation expressing the cry Never Again! in relation to what is being hammered into place with the Trump/Pence regime. This could take many forms of expression, making clear NO! In the Name of Humanity, We Refuse To Accept a Fascist America.
We want to pull together an April 24 task force to reach out to progressive Jewish and other religious forces, and much more broadly to together put out a call for this kind of mass expression on this day. Anyone who would like to be part of that Task Force, fill out this secure form telling us something about you, where you are located, in what ways you would like to contribute, and if you have particular connections to or knowledge of people or organizations that should be approached by Refuse Fascism. Include the best way to contact you so we don’t lose time getting back to you.
If you want to participate in any way, please fill out this secure form. We’ll get back to you quickly.
And if you have any knowledge or thinking on the struggle in these important arenas, and the harm that the Trump/Pence regime is doing and how that will affect the future and the mission of Refuse Fascism, please write us.
