If Trump is acquitted in a sham trial, a fascist regime will barrel ahead with disastrous consequences for humanity! THIS IS NOT A DONE DEAL. Flood DC. Protest Wednesday, January 29
Trump and Pence #OUTNOW!
Refuse Fascism is calling on people to come to DC, bringing signs with their reasons why the whole Trump Pence regime must go, and to demand witnesses, evidence, a real trial, conviction and removal. This is not a done deal. Everyday there is more evidence that Trump is Guilty of what he has been accused of and evidence that the whole regime was involved in this crime. People flooding into DC can play an important role in breaking this open and forcing the evidence into Trump’s trial.
Wednesday, January 29, 11:00 am,
Rally to demand Trump/Pence Out Now!
East side of U.S. Capitol. (SW corner of 1st Street NE and Constitution.
Protest and March thru DC
Starting at the east side of the Capitol, Delaware Ave NE and Northeast Drive.
Nationwide: See cities and locations here.
Refuse Fascism is calling for protest on January 29. It issued a statement saying, “Trump is on trial in the Senate. Democrats have finished presenting their argument for conviction and removal, but with Republicans stonewalling the entire process, the most likely outcome is a quick acquittal in a sham trial…UNLESS the people act now, flooding the streets of DC and cities and towns across the country in sustained, non-violent protest demanding removal.
“Meanwhile, a fascist movement is advancing. 22,000 heavily armed people converged on Richmond, Virginia on MLK Day with a violent white supremacist program and threats of civil war at its core. Trump presided over the so-called “March for Life,” where 100,000 people, many of them youth indoctrinated into Christian Fascist fundamentalism, marched to ban abortion and force women to have children against their will. THIS is the future if we do not step out in visible, collective, non-violent opposition.”
The Refuse Fascism statement continues, “Fascism has been unfolding. Concentration camps on the border… environmental devastation accelerated… war, even nuclear war, 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…All this and more will be accelerated and locked in if Trump is allowed to remain in power. Imagine the vengeance and entitlement to go forward with a program that puts the entire planet and all of humanity in its crosshairs.
“Stop being a spectator. Show up now – when it counts!
The statement adds, “The people can change this dynamic if they stop sitting passively back. If masses of people converge on DC outside the Senate, where the eyes of the world will be focused on the outrageous cover up and sham trial, this has the potential to light a political fire that not only swings the impeachment trial to admit evidence and witnesses and move towards removal, but can move even more people into mass sustained non-violent action that refuses to stop until the whole regime has been removed. Everyone around the world who has been wondering what’s wrong with the people in the U.S. for going along with fascism would take heart, and build even more pressure for our demand.
“EVERY DAY THAT THE TRUMP/PENCE REGIME REMAINS IN POWER THREATENS THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY AND THE PLANET.”
“All over the world people have shown us that hated regimes can be forced out through mass sustained, non-violent protest.”
