Protest Trump's inaguration.
The ANSWER Coalition, of which the Party for Socialism and Liberation is a member organization, has initiated a "Protest Against Trump on Inaguaration Day," on January 20, 2017 in Washington DC.
The Party for Socialism and Liberation of New Mexico is initiating a sister-protest in Albuquerque. We will gather on January 20th at 5:30pm in downtown ABQ at 1st and Central.
The ANSWER Coalition's original call:
"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.
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 the The Party for Socialism and Liberation of New Mexico on January 20, 2017, for a massive mobilization of the people."
