Year 2 of Trump: L.A. Rise Up!
Call for Demonstration and Banner Drop by the Coalition for Peace, Revolution, and Social Justice (CPRSJ)
Friday, January 26, 6PM, Wilshire overpass over I-110, downtown Los Angeles (2 blocks west of Wilshire and Figueroa)
#DefendJ20! Drop the Charges!
Defend Mother Earth! End Capitalism!
Stop LAPD + ICE!
No War! No Trump!
This demonstration will mark one year of the Trump Regime, focusing on rising up against it and the stagnant, moribund U.S. capitalist system of which it is the latest manifestation. We will defend the J20 demonstrators, who stood up against Trump’s inauguration a year ago and who are facing decades in prison. We will defend our environment, wracked by fire stemming from climate change stemming from unbridled capital accumulation. We will defend our communities against new and old forms of police surveillance and repression. We will defend the rights of women, people of color, the LGBTQIA community, and the working people as a whole in the face of a tax “reform” that enriches plutocrats and impoverishes the working class. We will oppose Trump’s war threats against North Korea and Iran and his moves against Palestine, while refusing to defend regimes that, while adversaries of the U.S., nonetheless repress their own people. We will advocate rising up against the whole system represented by Trump. We will rally in the spirit of the old IWW slogan, as powerful today as when it was coined a century ago: “Don’t Mourn! Organize!”
