Hell NO! To Border Atrocities
Trump will be making a major speech on the US/Mexican border and the shutting down of portions of the US government. Every major TV station will carry his foul words starting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, PST.
Refuse Fascism has joined with a call from Christina DiEdoardo and is calling for everyone to come out to protest: Tuesday,5:45 pm, Jan. 8, San Francisco Federal Building, 90 7th St.
5:45 PM - 6:00 PM: Opening remarks
6:00 PM - 6:20 PM: Broadcast of Trump's speech
6:20 PM: Group Response; Open mic/megaphone
There is widespread speculation that this will be an announcement of a national emergency. Whether Trump announces an emergency or not, he will vilify and attack migrants, use this to further rally and consolidate his fascist social base, and drive forward the regime’s overall fascist agenda.
This speaks to the extreme times we are in and the challenge this puts to us all. We must take to the streets to build for the time when we can rally millions to drive out the regime. We are canceling the regularly scheduled Refuse Fascism meeting, and urge everyone to join us in the streets.
revcom.us commented on the wall, Trump, and the Democrats (https://revcom.us/a/577/trumps-wall-and-border-security-of-the-democrats-en.html):
"This fascist wall must not be built, period. If this wall gets funded, in whatever form and with whatever concessions, it will represent a major escalation in the attack on immigrants. Even if it is seen as “symbolic”—and that will be what the Democrats tell you when and if they cut a deal with Trump—what it will symbolize will be that the tens and hundreds of millions of people seeking refuge from conditions created by this imperialist system are subhumans who must and will be kept out of the “gated community” of the very countries at fault for the disasters. Symbols are symbols because they mean something. After all, forcing Jews in Nazi Germany to wear “yellow stars” could be seen as “symbolic”—but what did they symbolize? A program of genocide."
And from the Refuse Fascism Indictment Panel on Immigrants and Refugees (https://refusefascism.org/the-trump-pence-regime-indicted/#immigrants):
Immigrants are full human beings, not “illegals” or criminals, to be demonized, terrorized, hunted down, locked up, and thrown out.
