Resist Trump: Occupy Inauguration Boston!
Friday Jan 20 6 PM
#ResistTrump !! #OccupyInauguration !!
Trump’s victory in the presidential election was a profound shock to
tens of millions of progressive workers, young people, immigrants,
women, people of color, Muslims, and LGBTQ people across the U.S. As
Trump’s reactionary cabinet appointments have been announced and the
list of targets of his administration has become clearer, there is
enormous fear and anger in many communities.
The reported plans to deport up to three million people, establish a
“registry” for Muslims, criminalize dissent, and nominate a Supreme
Court justice who will vote to overturn Roe v. Wade and shred union
rights in the public sector are not idle threats.
Trump has made his intentions clear and we cannot wait until after he
takes office to start building resistance to his reactionary policies.
To win victories we have to immediately begin building a mass movement
based on grassroots unity of working people and organizations, not unity
with the political establishment, and free of corporate influence. Join
us on Inauguration Day in Boston as we say:
-Make Boston a Sanctuary City! Stop the deportations of undocumented
-Black Lives Matter! End police brutality and mass incarceration!
-Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline -- green jobs now!
-Fight sexism, rape culture, and all attacks on women!
-Full rights for all LGBTQ people!
-Tax the super rich like Trump! Fund healthcare for all! Make college free!
Co-Sponsors: Massachusetts Peace Action, Boston May Day Committee,
Boston Feminists For Liberation, Boston Democratic Socialists of America
Join us as we gather at Saturday 10:45 AM at Park St. Station and march
to the Bandstand as a group. We will be distributing literature about
our future activities to the larger crowd.
Boston Women's March For America
On January 21, 2017, we will unite in Boston to march in solidarity with
communities most affected by the hate, intolerance and acts of violence
being perpetrated throughout the nation -- among many are communities of
women, immigrants, people of color, and people who identify as LGBTQIA
and people with disabilities.
We stand for religious freedom, human rights, climate
justice, racial justice, economic justice and reproductive justice.
Together, we will send a message to our leaders and the world that the
United States of America stands for values of human decency, equal
rights and freedom from discrimination.
ALL ARE WELCOME. On the day after the Inauguration, people from
Massachusetts and hundreds of thousands of Americans from other cities,
towns and schools across the nation and the world will march together in
sister marches. Be part of history!
PLEASE register at the march website
http: // www.bostonwomensmarchforamerica.org/
We will send email updates to all registered marchers. Registration is
free and it helps us plan a better March.
We have LOTS of information about the March at our website—from
transportation to schedule to volunteering. We also have official March
t shirts and a hat—and you can chip in to help us pay for the March.
