The Peace and Freedom Party endorses this event.
Trump’s appointees are a motley and dangerous crew of billionaires, white supremacists and other extreme rightwingers. They have nothing good in mind for anyone but the banks, oil companies and the military-industrial complex.
It is more important than ever that we keep building the grassroots movement against war, militarism, racism, anti-immigrant scapegoating and neoliberal capitalism’s assault against workers’ living standards and the environment.
Real social change comes from the bottom, the mobilized grassroots, and not from the centers of institutional power, the professional politicians or the capitalist elites.
This country needs a real political revolution. Millions of people feel entirely disenfranchised by a political system that delivered the least favorable and trusted candidates in U.S. history. Many hoped that the Bernie Sanders campaign would represent a new direction and opportunity to take on entrenched power and extreme inequality, for a higher minimum wage, to defend Social Security, rebuild the labor movement, provide universal health care and free tuition.
Donald Trump is a racist, sexist bigot. On Inauguration Day, thousands will be in the streets to give voice to the millions of people in this country who are demanding systemic change and who reject Trump’s anti-people program.
Join us on January 20, 2017, for a massive mobilization of the people!
Let's stand together to say NO to:
- ... attacks on immigrants and mass deportations
- ... hate crimes and the 'Muslim registry'
- ... U.S. wars and sanctions
- ... environmental destruction and climate-change deniers
- ... police brutality and the repression of protesters
- ... racist, anti-Semitic white supremacist groups
- ... union-busting and poverty wages
- ... cutbacks of Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security
- ... the reversal of hard-fought for women's and LGBTQ rights
