We will not stand aside
While there is still a chance to stop a regime that imperils the people of the world and the earth itself.
We do not comply with a regime:
putting targets on the backs of Black, brown, and Native people
denying women control of their bodies
forcing LGBTQ people back into the closet
We do not accept:
a society ruled by hate and bigotry, ignorance and brutality,
demeaning and cursing other peoples and countries
threatening them with destruction
There can be:
no more children torn from parents and locked in cages,
no more fire and fury from the mouth of a demented bully
with his finger on the nuclear trigger,
no more mass COVID death from science-hating lunacy
no more “law and order” of official terror
by bullets, batons, and tear gas
No longer can we live with
howling mobs resurrecting Jim Crow
fascist thugs attacking our protests
the right to vote stolen by defenders of the Confederacy
We will not worship the flag or accept a theocracy.
We will not become collaborators on a march to a racist genocide.
We will not hand the future to scorchers of the planet.
We will not rest until this fascist regime is driven from power.
4 more years, 4 more months
And it could be too late to change the course of history as the Trump/Pence regime sabotages the election and drags humanity to the edge of extinction.
Here and Now, we pledge to unite in our millions
rising together in nonviolent resistance to stop a great horror.
We pledge to stay in the streets, overcoming fear and uncertainty,
until this American fascism is brought to a halt.
Trump/Pence Out Now!
We will not stop
Until they’re gone.
