March on the Democratic National Convention 2020
Milwaukee, WI–The Coalition to March on the DNC is excited to announce a rally and march on the opening day of the Democratic National Convention, Monday, July 13, 2020.
“All eyes will be on Milwaukee when the people’s movements protest outside the DNC as it takes place at the Fiserv Forum, July 13 thru July 16th, 2020. The Coalition calls on all progressive, left, democratic and socialist organizations to join us in unity,” says Omar Flores, spokesperson for the Coalition.
“In forming the Coalition, we already applied for a permit to rally at Red Arrow Park and to march within sight and sound of the Fiserv Forum. We will be holding our first organizing meeting in Milwaukee in the coming weeks,” continued Flores.
In previous years, organizers of the Coalition led mass marches that drew tens of thousands to the 2008 RNC in St. Paul, MN, and thousands to the 2012 RNC in Tampa, FL, and the 2016 RNC in Cleveland, OH.
The Coalition to March on the DNC is a broad, national coalition of left and progressive forces, working with dozens of local Milwaukee groups and activists. We are rallying behind demands including but not limited to:
– End US Wars and Interventions / Money for Human Needs, Not War
– Community Control of the Police / Stop Police Terror
– Legalization for All / No More Deportations
– Tax the Rich
– Medicare for All
– Climate Action Now
– Fight to Expand Union and Worker Rights
– We Demand Peace, Justice, and Equality!”
Our solidarity will be based on respect for a diversity of tactics, and the plans of other groups.
The press conference is Thursday, April 4th, 6:30 PM at Milwaukee City Hall.
