100 Handmaids to Confront Mike Pence & Kirstjen Nielsen to Demand: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
What: Rally, photo op of Protesters v. VP Pence & DHS Secretary Nielsen
Tuesday, 100 women dressed as Handmaids will gather at the Bowling Green 4/5 station and march in procession to the Alexander Hamilton Customs House where Mike Pence is scheduled to speak at a DHS conference.
Sunsara Taylor of Refusefascism.org says, “Mike Pence is a Christian fascist theocrat for whom the Handmaid’s Tale is a model society: the Bible invoked to force women to bear children against their will, to persecute LGBTQ people, to tear immigrant children from parents. Only by driving the Trump/Pence regime from power through massive, sustained protest can we stop this nightmare.”
Monday Attorney General Sessions announced the regime’s “Religious Liberty Task Force,” aimed at further legalizing and enforcing bigotry and discrimination against LGBTQ people, and forced childbearing for women justified as “expressing religious freedom.”
Refusefascism.org is a movement of people of diverse political perspectives united in our recognition that the Trump/Pence regime poses a catastrophic threat to humanity. We are organizing a movement to drive them power from through non-violent sustained protest as in South Korea two years ago.
