Last night there was a massive protest at UC Santa Cruz as Donald Trump was being elected. Hundreds of students went to Quarry Plaza and marched through campus. Students are organizing more actions.

So many people have been negatively affected by Trump and the election, the UCSC Resource Centers released the following statement:

POST ELECTION STATEMENT FROM UCSC RESOURCE CENTERS

African American Resource and Cultural Center, American Indian Resource Center, Asian American/Pacific Islander Resource Center, El Centro: Chicano Latino Resource Center, Lionel Cantú Queer Center, and Women’s Center

The results of the 2016 National Election have been confirmed. Many of us will be negatively affected by these results. The UCSC Resource Centers stand in solidarity with, and will continue to advocate for Muslims, refugees and undocumented citizens, queer and trans folk, disabled folk, people of color, and women. We recognize that students and campus community members may feel dismayed or fearful about what is to come. Unfortunately, adversity is not new to our communities.

We are strong. We are resilient. We are here for you. We will move forward together.

The Resource Centers will hold space for folks to process, to breathe, and to come together as a community. Coffee, tea, and snacks will be available. Drop by the Ethnic Resource Centers (3rd floor, Bay Tree Building) and Lionel Cantú Queer Center (behind Crown circle). The Women’s Center facility at Cardiff House will be closed for the day, and staff will be available at the Ethnic Resource Centers.

Friday 9:30 to noon.

BarnStorm would like to open our doors to any and all feeling the trauma of the election results. This Friday, 11/11, BarnStorm will be hosting a support group and forum for anyone who wishes to gather and discuss the election.

The goal of this gathering is to reach out to students, faculty and community members that feel disenfranchised and threatened by the presidential election. We hope to offer a space for discussion of solutions for both the country and individuals struggling to cope with the political atmosphere. We intend to provide a safe space for discussion and emotional release.

The event will begin at 9:30pm, following Humor Force Five's improv performance. It will last as long as people need.

While we would like to highlight the importance of activism through the arts, this event is not confined to discussions of performative or artistic forms of activism. We as a company recognize the importance of theater (and the arts) as valuable tools for our society's ability to heal. We hope to aid in that process by hosting this event.

Before ANYONE asks if I attended the local anti-Trump protest in town last night that looked and sounded a LOT like a Trump rally, a couple of observations of many I made.

1: I'm sorry you participated in the system of your oppression and didn't get the oppressor you wanted.

2: I heard someone speaking say "Don't mourn, Organize".

Listen Joe Hill would have spit on Hillary Clinton, and Bernie? Hill would have boxed him down for even using the word "Socialist" in relation to himself.

3: The woman who said her family was from Syria spoke PERFECT English as she cried over her uncle who has to use a cane because of some unstated war related event.

How did THAT happen?

Hillary's State Department happened, and hired a bunch of Libyan goatfuckers to create a war in her uncle's country, while Bernie's baby, the F-35, is having it's wings made by Syria's enemy Israel... Israel is also one of the prime buyers for the F-35, that's undoubtedly going to cause a lot more Syrians to need canes, and body bags.

The lack of critical analysis by the people involved in the march was astounding, and depressing. Sickening really.

Join us in Mission Plaza (103 Emmett St.) to demonstrate mass opposition to Trump and this fucked up election, and build a movement for a truly just society.

Let's unite to fight racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, and all forms of injustice.

Fuck Trump, Let's Organize!

Santa Cruz Against Trump!

"Hillary Clinton the "feminist" supports terrorists in Syria & Iraq who put our women in cages and sell them into sex slavery.".

There has been nary a peep from Burn-E, the 'not-a-socialist', about it.
