This message was forwarded by our friend Judith Bello. Some of us may be past the “leave late Thursday night, return early Saturday morning” nature of this trip to Washington, DC. If you can be on the bus, that’s great. If not, you can donate “riderships” to allow people to join in the protest without having to pay the $60 cost. ($60 is a fair price, but if you don’t have $60, it would be great if you could still participate.)

Protest Trump’s Inauguration
Friday, January 20th Washington, DC.
GET ON THE BUS!
On January 20th, hundreds of thousands of people will be storming the streets across the US against Trump’s accelerated assault on migrants, LGBTQ people, women, unions, people of color, and the entire working class.
Now more than ever, we need massive resistance in the streets to shut down Trump’s agenda of racism, sexism, migrant-bashing, cutbacks, and war. Trump also wants to cut our health care, cut social security, and thinks the minimum wage is too high! He hopes to roll back a woman’s right to choose and overturn Roe v. Wade!
While both the Democrats and the Republicans are telling us now to accept the results of the election and look to “work with” President Trump! We completely refuse to accept this racist billionaire as the leader of this country. Trump has no solutions for the real issues faced by billions of workers across the world.
