Trump and Pence #OUTNOW!
An Invitation and Challenge to Everyone In the Streets Today for the Women’s March



Editors' note: This message and leaflet is intended to reach the participants in the Women's March on Saturday, January 18, 2020. We call on our readers to print and distribute this message.

We are at a crucial crossroads. What we decide to do can determine the future.

Trump has been impeached and faces a Senate trial over removal, widening divides throughout society. Now is the time for determined struggle by the people to go all the way to demand: Trump/Pence #OUTNOW!

Trump carries out a brazen war crime by assassinating a high-ranking official of Iran, threatening more. He reminds the world that a dangerous bully heading a fascist regime has an itchy Twitter-finger on the nuclear button. The danger of all-out war remains even as Trump’s sanctions intensify the suffering of the Iranian people.


Concentration camps on the border… environmental devastation accelerated… war, even nuclear war, threatened… white supremacist rule… fascist mobs and racist mass murderers… truth and science erased… the right to abortion near gone… the rule of law and democratic and civil rights being stripped away… THIS IS FASCISM UNFOLDING AND IN POWER.

Everyone with a conscience must face this hard truth. But that is not enough—we must ACT ON IT.

Look around today—at all of us marching, across the country. The deep yearning to see Trump removed from power visible on our signs, our faces, and in peoples’ hearts. To see the nightmare he represents in the rearview of history.

OUR power is the power of the people acting with determination in the streets. But not by protesting one day and going home. We must flood the streets in mass, sustained, nonviolent protest, with people of many different points of view acting together to stop a catastrophe for humanity. Starting in our hundreds, soon becoming thousands, and ultimately millions! Refusing to stop until the whole Trump/Pence regime, including the Christian fascist Pence, has been removed from power! All, with the single unifying demand: Trump/Pence #OUTNOW!

Especially now, this could intensify the kind of political crisis in this country that compels the removal of the regime. The impeachment of Trump is a real advance. The cracks and strains in our political class are sharper and visible. People are restive with dread and hope. Now is a moment to seize—building mass, sustained, nonviolent protest demanding the removal of the whole regime.

This is the example of people all over the world taking to the street against hated regimes. We should do no less!

We must not return to business-as-usual. We must not repeat the pattern of the last three years where righteous protest against each new atrocity was followed by a return to normalcy as fascism advanced. Nor can we rely on the 2020 election. An election which is likely neither to be “fair” nor whose verdicts will necessarily be honored by Trump. His threats to “lock up” political rivals, massive voter suppression and the racist Electoral College are real. In addition to horrors Trump inflicts on humanity in the time between now and the elections, we cannot gamble the future on Trump’s willingness to peacefully leave office even if voted out.

These are not “normal” times. This is not a “normal” President and regime. The “normal” channels of redress will not suffice, especially as Trump and his regime shred them apart. But there are deep cracks throughout all of society, including among the powers that be.

URGENTLY what is needed and possible NOW: A different kind of protest… Sustained and growing, each week making advances and becoming a magnetic force for all who increasingly feel the Trump/Pence regime represents an existential danger and threat to humanity. #OUTNOW! is a single unifying demand that everyone can take up, across different perspectives, geographies and righteous streams of struggleand be out in the streets. Together, let’s turn dread and fear of the future into a force for hope.

In the Name of Humanity,
We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!
