ANNOUNCING LEG TWO: Drive Out the Trump/Pence Regime National Tour – Northeast Campuses

April 3, 2017 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us


NO! In the Name of Humanity—We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America
Setting Out April 5th through the month of April

“The Trump/Pence Regime is a Fascist Regime. Not insult or exaggeration, this is what it is. For the future of humanity and the planet, we, the people, must drive this regime out...

“Fascism is not just a gross combination of horrific reactionary policies. It is a qualitative change in how society is governed. Fascism foments and relies on xenophobic nationalism, racism, misogyny, and the aggressive re-institution of oppressive ‘traditional values.’ In Trump’s election campaign he encouraged and fed on the threat and use of violence to build a movement and come to power. In his inaugural address he pledged allegiance only to this movement. What is crucial to understand is that once in power fascism essentially eliminates traditional democratic rights.”

The Trump/Pence regime is moving quickly to consolidate its hold on the reins of power while viciously reordering society. In the month of April there are major events being organized by a broad array of forces that promise to bring many hundreds of thousands into the streets and in protest in a concentrated 10-day period, between Saturday, April 22, and Monday, May 1. What happens in the month of April could well be pivotal to driving from office the fascist Trump/Pence regime, before it is too late.

Organizers will set out from NYC in a van to go to campuses in the Northeast, where a whole new generation has been thrust into political life. This tour will be on a mission to organize and work with different student organizations and individuals to manifest student contingents at these different gatherings:

*April 22 March for Science, Scientists and those who support science all over the country have called for a major march in Washington DC on April 22, with satellite protests being held in 427 places all over the world, 315 of them in the U.S.

*April 29 People’s Climate March, Climate, Jobs and Justice with a focus against the policies & actions of Trump/Pence that endanger the environment of the whole planet. Washington DC

*May 1 Many organizations, including immigrants rights organizations, unions, and student groups have called for protest marches and strikes in cities across the country, on the general theme of opposition to the attacks against immigrants.

The Tour will pull up to college campuses and rally students in the quad. The Tour will connect up with individuals and student groups who have been in the midst of resistance since the election results—as well as those who haven’t yet—and collaborate on programs and meetings.

We have just completed the first leg of the Tour, which traveled from New York all the way down the East Coast and west toward Austin for South by Southwest, making our last stop in El Paso, Texas. (Read our reports here.)

This tour will be a dynamic factor on the national terrain with people following its progress, learning of its impact, taking inspiration, and redoubling their own efforts. The Tour will not just inspire people nationwide, but will be a seeding machine to build organization and movement among students to take responsibility and make history by driving out this regime.

There are several key ways people can help make this Tour a success:
