May 1st: Come out on May 1st! Stand with Immigrants Under Attack!
Carry a sign that says, “NO! In the Name of Humanity – We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America,” in one of several languages – English, Spanish, Arabic, Farsi, French and more – showing the whole world that people here are standing with them against the attacks of the Trump/Pence Regime.
Carry one of these NO! signs and/or organize a NO! Contingent that carries this NO! in a multitude of languages. Stand with people from all over the world as immigrants are being demonized, terrorized, dragged from their homes, or living in fear that the government will jail or deport them and everyone else is being told to stand aside and turn their backs.
By carrying this NO!, show your opposition to Donald Trump’s hideous “America First” ideology and program. Say NO! to Trump’s Nazi-like Declaration proclaiming that May 1stshould be “Loyalty Day” – when it is clear he means “Loyalty” to “Making America White Again” and threatening people of the whole world with his war moves.
Join with others all across the country to say:
No Ban! No Wall! No Deportations! No Fascist USA!
100 Days of Fascism – Basta Ya!
Drive Out the Trump/Pence Regime!
In the Name of Humanity, We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America!
