Protest Franklin Graham and his "Decision (Fascism) America" California Tour
Date Friday June 01
Time 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorRefuse Fascism
Location Details
University Ave & Sixth Street, Berkeley, CA 94710 (at the foot of the bridge that goes over the freeway)
Christian fascist preacher Franklin Graham is coming to Berkeley on June 1st to hold his “Decision America California Tour” at Cesar Chavez Park. Billed as a religious revival, this is about mobilizing a blind, obedient, and fervent fascist social base for the Trump/Pence regime. And the tour stop in Berkeley delivers the message that Berkeley – and all who stand up to fascist authority – are in the cross hairs of fascist America. We must oppose Graham and the whole regime!

Press Release, 5/31/18

Protesters Denounce Counterfeit Spirituality and Religious Hypocrisy of Franklin Graham!

Refuse Fascism and Rev. Amos Brown of the Third Baptist Church of San Francisco will protest racist and fascist Franklin Graham!

Franklin Graham’s “Decision America” will hit Berkeley Friday evening. The tour, billed as a religious revival, is in truth sponsorship of Donald Trump’s program of white supremacy, misogyny and xenophobia.

Trump would not be president without support from Christian fundamentalists like Graham, and Trump is carrying out the agenda of white supremacy, hatred of Islam, and assault on LGBTQ people that Graham has been about all along.

Rev. Amos Brown said on Tuesday at a rally at SF City Hall protesting the DA’s failure to indict SF police in the murders of Mario Woods and Luis Gongora: “The enemy doesn’t always come in a blue suit with a badge on. The enemy comes from fake preachers and leaders who claim to love Jesus… come next month, when Franklin Graham, Billy Graham’s son, comes to Berkeley, talking about holding up Jesus, we have to go and tell him in this Bay Area in this town, you have to do more than talk the talk, you have to walk the walk, you have to stand with Black people when their friends and loved ones are murdered, are shot down like dogs, like animals, like cows and pigs…”

Refuse Fascism says “People all over the world are calling on us to STOP this nightmare… We need to organize now for the time when we can launch massive, sustained, non-violent protests in the streets and towns across the country – protests that continue day after day and don’t stop, creating the kind of political situation in which the demand that the Trump/Pence regime be removed from power is met.”
