Refuse Fascism -- July 6, Lesson of the day…

There is no neutrality under the shadow of rising fascism

A rationale to not act on JULY 15

July 6, 2017 | Revolution Newspaper |


The Objection: Some people and organizations claim that while they believe that Trump and Pence must go, they or their organization, won’t build for it or participate because it “will undermine their independent integrity—their objectivity—and the ability to leverage their voices if they give up their appearance of neutrality by taking a firm stand against the Trump/Pence Regime.”


TRUTH: By attempting to remain or at least appear, “neutral,” one is objectively normalizing what  is being done by the fascist Trump/Pence Regime. There is “no neutrality on a moving train.” In actuality, the train of the fascist Trump/Pence regime will likely swallow up your “neutrality.” From the RefuseFascism Call to Action, “…the character of fascism is that it can absorb separate acts of resistance while continually throwing the opposition off balance by rapidly moving its agenda forward.  The Trump/Pence regime will repeatedly launch new highly repressive measures, eventually clamping down on all resistance and remaking the law…IF THEY ARE NOT DRIVEN FROM POWER.”

THE RIGHT THING TO DO: Join people from diverse perspectives standing shoulder to shoulder in the streets July 15. As the July 15 unifying Statement says:

IN THE NAME OF HUMANITY, THE TRUMP AND PENCE REGIME MUST GO! Only the people acting together in the streets and public square can force this demand before the world. Should we fail to do so, the future and values we aspire to could be brutally cut short by the actions of the Trump/Pence Regime.
