Be part of resisting the horrors the Trump presidency brings by supporting World Can’t Wait
“That which you do not resist, you will learn – or be forced – to accept.”
— From the original Call to Drive Out The Bush Regime
Through the Bush years, World Can’t Wait supporters did not accept the unjust, immoral, illegitimate wars or the torture and indefinite detention which defined that regime.
And, we didn’t stop when Obama was elected, organizing protests of expansion of US wars across the Middle East, of targeted killing and 8 more years of the torture camp at Guantánamo.
Now we are called to resist and defy a growing fascist power in the presidency – aggrandizing white supremacy, embodying misogyny and threatening democratic rights of the people, including through violent means.
We do not need to see how Trump will govern. We see what is shaping up through who is grouped around him, through his advocacy of war crimes and casual use of nukes, denial of climate change and his utter contempt for truth and norms.
We cannot sit waiting to see if Muslims are registered. We will not wait and see if suspected terrorist’s families or dissidents are tortured. We will not wait to see if families are ripped apart through mass deportations or if the basic rights of women, LGBTQ people and people of color are stolen. We will not collaborate, regardless of the promises Trump makes, like “infrastructure investments for jobs.” We will not wait and see if Trump escalates the criminal destruction of the planet. You can’t pick and choose with a fascist and to attempt to do so is unconscionable.
We will not give fascism a chance. We will fight with everything we have.
With your support, we will spread & publish “In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE To Accept a Fascist America.”
We will do all we can to promote determined resistance through mass demonstrations and quick response to political repression.

The people of the world, including our brothers and sisters in this country who are in the crosshairs of the Trump administration (and the fascist movement he has unleashed), deserve nothing less than uncompromising resistance that does not stop until the fascists are stopped. Yes, the destruction of the rule of law will have to be fought in the courts. It is right that service organizations are preparing to meet the needs of those who come under attack.
But nothing is more important than right now building a united movement that stops Trump from consolidating a hold on the reins of governmental power.
Because you stand with all of humanity not just white male American Christians… Because you care about the future of this planet… Because you know that in these times the gravest problem is silence…
