Message to Student Walkouts: This nightmare must end! Rise up and change the world!

To all students and young people who are lifting your heads, disrupting your normal routines to call out a great horror and hold those in power accountable, we stand with you. It’s truly horrifying that we live in a society where mass shootings are routine occurrences, and it is righteous that we are demanding change. The world needs even more students standing up: standing up to the authorities, standing up to the politicians who pretend nothing’s wrong, standing up to those who offer “thoughts and prayers” and tell us to wait, to duck our heads and patiently go along with this…standing up and taking to the streets, walking out and refusing business as usual…for ourselves and for students across the country.
At the same time, it is critical that we broaden our scope and take even greater responsibility. The heart-wrenching truth is that we’re coming of age in a time of unparalleled danger. We’re now living under the fascist Trump/Pence regime. We don’t use the word “fascist” as an insult or exaggeration; we use it to describe the reality of what they’re imposing on this country and the world.
Vicious white supremacy…anti-Muslim bigotry…mass deportations and ICE raids…families torn apart, children watching in horror as their parents are torn away from them…attacks on women and LGBTQ people…accelerated destruction of our beautiful environment…And while we sit in our classrooms in fear that someone will open fire, millions of kids just like us in North & South Korea sit in terror, wondering if they’ll be incinerated by a U.S. nuclear bomb at any moment. Children in Yemen and Syria can’t even dream of going to school, as they are bombed and starved by U.S. coalitions, dying of malnutrition and cholera at extremely alarming rates. This is only the beginning of the devastation a fascist America will bring to this planet.
When those in power tried to write the Parkland massacre off as just another mass shooting, students answered NO. Students drew a line and made clear that we are not going to allow shootings to be “normal” anymore. Now we need to do the same thing in challenging the legitimacy of the Trump/Pence regime because we can’t and we won’t allow ourselves to become normalized to fascism.The future is a true nightmare if this regime is not stopped and ONLY the people, rising up in mass sustained nonviolent protest, can stop this nightmare by driving this regime from power. That is what RefuseFascism.org is all about, and we call on you:

Korean Students: Dump Trump!
In front of the National Assembly of Korea on 11/3, South Korean students protested Donald Trump’s upcoming visit.
Published in the UCLA Daily Bruin:
Intolerant policies warrant nonviolent protests, not civil discourse
In the context of a fascist regime in power, you cannot have “civil discourse” with fascists…
Refuse Fascism is putting forward a challenge on Nov. 4, and a call to all to recognize this regime for what it is: a grave danger to humanity and the planet. Our challenge is aimed at ending this nightmare by having thousands across the country pour into the streets and engaging in mass, nonviolent resistance until our demands are met. We refuse to accept a fascist America.
This Nightmare MUST END: The Trump/Pence Regime MUST GO!
In the Name of Humanity: We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!
Student Organizer Speaks at Nov 4 in NYC: What Kind of World Do We Want to Live in?
Students have played a major role in almost every movement for social and political change and this is needed now more than ever. A fascist regime holds the reins of power in the U.S. And they have communicated by word and deed that they are determined to cohere America under the banner of open white supremacy, patriarchy, and American chauvinism. Right now fascist intellectual hitmen (Milo Yiannopoulos, Ann Coulter, Steve Bannon, Mike Cernovich, Richard Spencer, and more) have descended on the campus in the service of the Trump/Pence Regime.
YOU’RE NEEDED: Think about what you felt the day you found out Trump was elected. Now ACT on that feeling and organize others to PROTEST and NOT STOP, Until The Trump/Pence Regime is Driven from Power.
This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go! In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America BREAK THE SILENCE! BRING THE NOISE!

This means working and organizing with all our creativity and determination toward November 4 when many thousands of people will fill the streets of cities and towns, beginning a struggle that continues day after day and night after night, eventually involving millions of people, demanding: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!” (from our mission statement)

Since Trump was elected president, we are facing a constitutional crisis, and an emergency situation for humanity. A fascist regime holds the reins of power in U.S., and they have communicated by word and deed that they are determined to cohere America under the banner of open white supremacy, patriarchy, and American chauvinism.
AS YOU READ THIS they are kidnapping immigrants from their homes and workplaces, and forcing them into the shadows in fear of deportation. They are demonizing and unleashing violence against Muslims and leaving refugees to the mercy of the oceans and the imperialist countries that see them as human waste. They are denying health care, food assistance, and the basic right to live to millions of children, poor people, and elderly people. They are propelling women back into the dark ages with their male supremacist agenda, stripping women of the access to control their bodies, reducing them to sex objects and breeders. They are denouncing the humanity of LGBT people, labeling transgender people as “burdens” to society.
They are giving the green light to the police to continue to murder Black and Latino people at an escalating rate, with genocidal implications in their white supremacist agenda. They are bombing the people of the world with chemical weapons and threatening all of civilization with a nuclear holocaust in the name of “America First.” They are putting the whole planet in peril by pouring gasoline all over global warming and gutting all environmental protections. They are trying to eliminate the critical investigation of reality and the scientific method, and it is no exaggeration to say that this could lead to the very extinction of humanity if not through the utter devastation of the planet, then through nuclear war.
