Anti-Fascist Group to Stage Anti-Trump Rally Tonight in West Hollywood

RefuseFascism.org, a New York City-based group organized to oppose Donald Trump, is holding a rally this evening at the Matthew Shepard Triangle Memorial Park in West Hollywood

The rally is a protest of Trump’s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court. It will take place at 5:30 p.m. at the park, which is at the intersection of Santa Monica and Crescent Heights boulevards.

“There is no electoral road to stopping Trump’s fascist Supreme Court pick,” said Sunsara Taylor, a spokesperson for the group. “But that doesn’t mean we have to accept it. It means is we have to step outside politics-as-usual and wage a mass, nonviolent political struggle that not only stops this Supreme Court pick, but keeps going until we have driven the whole Trump/Pence regime from power.”

At the rally, RefuseFascism.org’s Los Angeles chapter will issue a statement repudiating Trump’s Supreme Court and unveil seven new five-foot tall posters containing “indictments of the Trump/Pence regime” which the group says “comprehensively detail the crimes already carried out by the Trump/Pence regime against Muslims; against immigrants; against women and LGTBQ people; against the people of the world through war; against truth, science and the environment; and against Black people and other people of color. Taken together, these paint an irrefutable picture of the a vicious American fascism being imposed by the Trump/Pence regime which must be stopped.

Tonight’s protest is one of several being held nationwide by RefuseFascism.org that will demand the removal of Trump and his vice president, Mike Pence.

  1. Unproductive. Unhelpful. Will cause traffic delays for people who are already against the current administration. Focus on the midterms.

    1. I’m sure to no one’s surprise you could of guessed that I attended the rally, if for no other reason to debunk all the comments posted by those who opposed it and, never attended. Attending political rallies will by no means have an adverse effect on the midterm elections, quite the contrary. It is important for people (most especially oppressed minority groups) to know in a very practical way that they are NOT alone in their points of view. Progressive political movements have lost badly in many instances when their supporters feel isolated and unsupported, to the point that elite reactionary positions are enabled to give an illusion of overwhelming popular support even when quite the opposite can be easily proven. When such illusions are allowed to become embedded in society and go unchallenged, they affect people’s behavior (as in NOT bothering to vote) and, gain acceptance as the norm.

      I was pleasantly surprised how well it went during rush hour traffic, the overwhelming majority of drivers were expressing their support for the rally, some later joining! 🙂
