A month of flash protests, banner drops, rapidly responding to sharp political events, and other actions to disrupt the advance of fascism, disturb the normalization and complicity of those who oppose Trump/Pence but are passively going along, and build the movement to drive the regime from power.
The Trump/Pence regime poses a catastrophic danger to humanity. Concentration camps on the border… environmental devastation accelerated… war, even nuclear war, casually threatened… white supremacist rule… fascist mobs and racist mass murderers… truth and science erased… the right to abortion near gone… the rule of law and democratic and civil rights stripped away… THIS IS FASCISM UNFOLDING AND IN POWER.
As the impeachment hearings move towards possible conclusion, sharp political lines are drawn with high stakes. Trump has declared the entire lawful process illegitimate and worked with Republicans to defy and obstruct it. Yet, to date, the Democratic leadership has all but conceded that Trump will not be removed by the Senate. Further, they refuse to impeach on the basis of Trump’s full fascist program, thereby leaving intact and even legitimating these crimes.
What can change all of this? WE CAN – the power of the people taking to the streets in sustained non-violent protest, raising the unifying demand: Trump/Pence #OUTNOW! And then, continuing week after week across the country, growing in numbers and determination until our demand is met. THIS IS THE WAY TO REMOVE THE TRUMP/PENCE REGIME. At this moment of peril, celebrate this holiday season by struggling together, overcoming all that divides us, and transforming dread for the future into hope for humanity. Let this be the joy of the holidays.
In recent years, Puerto Rico, South Korea and other nations have shown the effectiveness of this method. For this to happen in the U.S., we must together:  Disrupt the advance of fascism by standing up against the Trump/Pence regime and its crimes.  Disturb the normalization and complicity of those who genuinely hate what Trump/Pence represent, but are passively going along as catastrophe mounts.  Build the society-wide influence and numbers of the #OUTNOW Movement, advancing towards the time when we can bring millions into the streets in sustained, non-violent political protest that does not stop until the regime is removed from power.
Join us for December Disruptions: “There is no Santa Claus, and he will not remove Trump and Pence. It’s on us. Trump/Pence #OUTNOW!” This is a month of flash protests, banner drops, rapidly responding to sharp political events, and other actions. This will include “moving protests” on Saturday, December 7th – on public transit or by car caravan – to disturb the air and get the word out on a massive scale. The centerpiece of the month will be mass protests on December 14, injecting the demand “Trump/Pence #OUTNOW!” into the holidays to shake off the numbing mass-consumerism daze. If we truly want to bring joy to children everywhere in this season, we must put an end to the regime that locks them in cages and imperils their future.
Don’t bury your hopes and conscience. Come out and make a difference. NOW IS THE TIME.
There’s still a chance to stop a regime that imperils humanity and the planet. What will you tell future generations you did during this last window of hope and opportunity? Let’s stand together with conviction and courage, overcoming fear and uncertainty, to struggle with all we’ve got to demand:
