** This publication will come just days after major protests on New Years' Eve at Trump properties across the country. Many thousands filling the streets on the eve of 2017 to say NO! No nuclear arms race... No “pussy-grabbing”... No immigrant-bashing... No Muslim registry... No Wall... No White Supremacy... No Neo-Nazis... No gay-bashing... No climate-change-denying... NO TRUMP... NO PENCE... NO FASCIST USA! Watch THIS powerful short video.
** This will lead in to two weeks of rolling protests with NO! reverberating throughout society, culminating on MLK Weekend, starting December 14, with massive demonstrations of many thousands in key cities, including Washington. D.C., that grow to millions over the next week, protests that don’t stop... where people refuse to leave and more and more people stand up with conviction and courage demanding NO! We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America!
And all this in the context of millions acting – from their own perspectives – to say NO! We will not get used to fascism, we will do everything we can to STOP it. Are there guarantees? No. But this is real, this is possible and it requires you.
Right now, your financial contribution can make ALL the difference.
“Imagine if people, in the tens of millions, filled the streets, powerfully declaring that this regime is illegitimate and demanding that it not be allowed to rule! The whole political landscape would be dramatically transformed, every faction within the established power structure would be forced to respond—and all this could well lead to a situation in which this fascist regime is actually prevented from ruling.”
“This is not some idle dream but something which could be made a reality if all those who hate what is represented by this fascist regime translate their outrage into firm determination and massive mobilization to create the conditions which make this possible.”
