Saturday #OUTNOW! Protests Go Forward Nationwide
Assaults, Threats, Swastikas and Slurs Against #OUTNOW! Protests in LA
“We won’t be deterred, we’re coming back to demand: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go”
NYC: 2:00 pm Union Square @ 14th Street, march to Trump Tower
This Saturday, the national #OUTNOW! movement will take to the streets in at least 13 cities across the country in the third of five weeks of protest aimed at at building an unrelenting, non-violent, sustained mass movement, like those spreading around the world from Hong Kong to Chile to Lebanon, with one goal – driving the Trump/Pence Regime from power.
In Los Angeles, in the face of violent MAGA attacks and ominous fascist threats, local and national leaders of Refuse Fascism will be in the streets again THIS Saturday in MacArthur Park to lead the protest.
“No matter what they throw at us, we will not be deterred. The Proud Boy thugs are violent enforcers of Trump/Pence’s fascist program. We won’t back down. The #OUTNOW! movement won’t stop continuing non-violent protest until this whole regime is driven from power.” said Andy Zee, co-initiator of Refuse Fascism.

The #OUTNOW! movement was launched by Refuse Fascism with marches on October 19 and October 26.
OUTNOW!’s actions have been marked by a fierce determination to break with passivity in the face of fascism, a refusal to be lulled by talk of normal procedures and pendulum swings, and a challenge to those outraged by the Trump/Pence regime to get off the sidelines and join the movement. “Which side are you on?” the protesters ask.
“We must seize on the impeachment crisis now erupting,” Andy Zee states, “taking history into our own hands and turning dread for the future into a force for hope – joining together behind the single unifying demand: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go– NOW!”
Interviews are available with Refuse Fascism national spokesperson Andy Zee, RefuseFascism co-initiator Cornel West, co-initiator Sunsara Taylor, and Iraq War veteran and now revolutionary-minded Bo Login.
The Trump/Pence regime poses a catastrophic danger to humanity and the planet. Concentration camps at the border… environmental devastation accelerated… danger of war, even nuclear, threatened… white supremacy rules… fascist mobs and racist mass murders… truth and science erased… right to abortion near gone… the rule of law and democratic and civil rights stripped away… THIS IS FASCISM UNFOLDING.
“Puerto Rico, Hong Kong show us how, Trump and Pence Out Now!”
In the Name of Humanity, We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America
RefuseFascism.org is a movement of people coming from diverse perspectives, united in our recognition that the Trump/Pence Regime poses a catastrophic danger to humanity and the planet, and that it is our responsibility to drive them from power through non-violent protests that grow every day until our demand is met. This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
