14th St and Pennsylvania Ave
|Protest outside the Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C., Nov. 9|
Progressive people from all over the country will be descending on Washington, D.C., on January 20, 2017, to stage a massive demonstration along Pennsylvania Avenue on Inauguration Day.
It is critically important that we keep building a larger grassroots movement against war, militarism, racism, anti-immigrant scapegoating and neoliberal capitalism’s assault against workers’ living standards and the environment.
This protest has the potential to unite tens of thousands of people in the streets against Trump, but we can only do this with your urgently-needed support. Please make a donation today to cover the cost of buses, leaflets, placards and other organizing expenses.
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.
That campaign was largely suppressed, but its end does not change the desires and aspirations of tens of millions of people, workers and youth in particular, who are demanding real change. On Inauguration Day, thousands will be in the streets regardless to give voice to the millions of people in this country who are demanding systemic change.
Donald Trump is a racist, sexist bigot. We believe that tens of thousands of progressive people will be in the streets on Inauguration Day, and in the weeks and months afterward.
How one voted on election day is one thing, but even more important is whether we succeed in building a mass movement that can truly change the country, and the world.
Join us on January 20, 2017, for a massive mobilization of the people.
This action has been initiated by the ANSWER Coalition.
