“There’s a lot of people hoping that Democrats somehow intervene,” says Refuse Fascism organizer Raphael Kadaris. Or that a successful conclusion to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election will force Donald Trump’s resignation or impeachment. But “the idea we that we can rely on people in the FBI or Democratic party is a dangerous illusion.” And we should not be dissuaded by political pundits (Madeleine Albright for example) whose real mission, in calling out fascism, is to preserve U.S. imperialism.
RefuseFascism.org refreshes its Call to Action next week, Wednesday April 11, with a 30 minute livestream from New York City (6:45 pm east coast time) that will include a dramatic reading of the call and a presentation of the national plan to drive out the Trump/Pence regime.
We must not reassure ourselves that fascism couldn’t take hold in the U.S. Trump’s “Make America Great Again” is a 21st century program of Manifest Destiny – “America First” – a program of white supremacy, misogyny, and xenophobia.
People all over the world are counting on us to end this nightmare. The fascists in the White House have not yet been able to implement their full program. There is still time to stop its advance, but not a lot of time.
“The Trump/Pence Regime poses a catastrophic danger to humanity and the planet,” reads the Call, and “it is our responsibility to drive them from power through non-violent protests that grow every day until our demand is met. This means working and organizing with all our creativity and determination to bring thousands, eventually millions of people into the streets of cities and towns, to demand:
This Nightmare Must End:
The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!”
