HELP Plan a Mass December Rally
at TRUMP TOWER
NO to Racism, War, Police Violence, Anti-Muslim and Immigrant Bashing!
Today we face the most extreme national and international crisis since 9/11. This is a crisis that can quickly expand.
Please join us at an urgent planning meeting this Tues. Dec 1, 7:00 pm at the Solidarity Center.
The time is now to focus on Trump and the corporate media. Trump is filling stadiums with racist, bigoted mobs and mobilizing them into a really ominous force. The media is acting as giant megaphone, providing constant coverage of fascist proposals like a national database and ID cards for Muslims, causing vicious attacks on immigrants and refugees, and all the while justifying new wars, vastly increased police violence and publicizing the most disgusting racism.
The shooting of five Black Lives Matter activists in Minneapolis, the deadly shooting at the Colorado Planned Parenthood, the attacks on Mosques and the Muslims pulled off of flights, desperate refugees barred from entering the U.S., the vicious anti-immigrant slurs and escalating police killings – all are a result of a poisoned political climate that encourages fascist violence.
From the Middle East to East Europe to Asia Pacific, the Pentagon is moving in the direction of wider war. Racism, fear of immigrants and anti-Muslim bigotry are being used to justify new crimes.
This is not an election issue. It is clear now that Trump and his corporate supporters are trying to actually build a fascist movement. These fascists aim to overwhelm the anti-racist unity that the Black Lives Matter has achieved in the streets and on campuses, and crush the inspiring example this movement sets for others.
Whenever fascism rears its ugly head, it is the duty of all progressive forces to unite in struggle and solidarity against it.
Let’s bring together all those who fight for justice — immigrant organizations, Palestine activists, the dynamic Black Lives Matter movement and LGBTQ community, antiwar forces, Muslim community groups and labor activists, peoples with disabilities, workers fighting for $15 an hour — and plan a united action.
We are looking at demonstration dates of Sat. Dec 12 or Sat Dec 19. The date will be set based on feedback we are getting from many different groups..
Hopefully our unity will resonate into nationally coordinated actions all around the country. Let’s see what is possible.
We hope to see you on Tuesday at 7:00 pm and would love to have your input.
