#Disrupt J20: No Peaceful Transition to Trump’s fascist regime!

On the Nov 14, Crimethinc published a video in multiple places made in the Anonymous style promoting the upcoming protests against Trump’s inauguration on Jan 20, 2016. The video explicitly states “the parade must be stopped” and advises “wear black.” For protesters to take and hold Penn Ave would probably force the cancellation of Trump’s parade, much as extreme cold cancelled Reagan’s second Inaugural parade.

Below is the transcript of of the video plus area-specific details:

On Friday, January 20, 2017, Donald Trump will be inaugurated as President of the United States. We call on all people of good conscience to join in disrupting the ceremonies. If Trump is to be inaugurated at all, let it happen behind closed doors, showing the true face of the security state Trump will preside over. It must be made clear to the whole world that the vast majority of people in the United States do not support his presidency or consent to his rule.

Trump stands for tyranny, greed, and misogyny. He is the champion of neo-nazis and white Nationalists, of the police who kill the Black, Brown and poor on a daily basis, of racist border agents and sadistic prison guards, of the FBI and NSA who tap your phone and read your email. He is the harbinger of even more climate catastrophe, deportation, discrimination, and endless war. He continues to deny the existence of climate change, in spite of all the evidence, putting the future of the whole human race at stake. The KKK, Vladimir Putin, Golden Dawn, and the Islamic State all cheered his victory. If we let his inauguration go unchallenged, we are opening the door to the future they envision.

Trump’s success confirms the bankruptcy of representative democracy. Rather than using the democratic process as an alibi for inaction, we must show that no election could legitimize his agenda. Neither the Democrats nor any other political party or politician will save us—they just offer a weaker version of the same thing. If there is going to be positive change in this society, we have to make it ourselves, together, through direct action.

From day one, the Trump presidency will be a disaster. #DisruptJ20 will be the start of the resistance. We must take to the streets and protest, blockade, disrupt, intervene, sit in, walk out, rise up, and make more noise and good trouble than the establishment can bear. The parade must be stopped. We must delegitimize Trump and all he represents. It’s time to defend ourselves, our loved ones, and the world that sustains us as if our lives depend on it—because they do.

In Washington, DC

DC will not be hospitable to the Trump administration. Every corporation must openly declare whether they side with him or with the people who will suffer at his hands. Thousands will converge and demonstrate resistance to the Trump regime. Save the date. A website will appear shortly with more details. #DisruptJ20

Around the US

If you can’t make it to Washington, DC on January 20, take to the streets wherever you are. We call on our comrades to organize demonstrations and other actions for the night of January 20. There is also a call for a general strike to take place. Organize a walkout at your school now. Workers: call out sick and take the day off. No work, no school, no shopping, no housework.

Around the World

If you are living outside the US, you can take action at US embassies, borders, or other symbols of neocolonial power. Our allegiance is not to “making America great again,” but to all of humanity and the planet. #DisruptJ20

Spread the word. Join the fight. #DisruptJ20

    Has Anyone besides myself noticed?
    The majority of Americans in the 1%, or the richest, whom EVERYbody (or the other 99%),) are the same ones who support Hillary and the DEMS.
    Than the Democrats, like Hillary, and Bernie, always like to cut down the 1%, whom they say take away from the ret of US!! This includes BIG business!!!
    Then they make laws, like Obamacare, that were lobbyist from the Insurance Industry( the ONES who benifited MOST,) while the 99% suffer!!!! Wake UP and smell the BS people!!! The Democratic Party has been playing MOST of you like FOOLS, and the TRUTH will set you FREE,IF you choose to wake up and realize the GAME they play!!!!!

      Which is why I am NOT a Democrat and never have been. The Dems are like a “second GOP” and Hillery Clinton should have run against Trump in the GOP primary as far as I am concerned. Obamacare is a mess, we need SINGLE PAYER, we may yet get it when that “individual mandate” collapses. Remember, it cannot be enforced due to the fact that the IRS can do nothing to collect if you refuse to pay the penalty except withhold it from refunds. Trump though wants to roll back Medicaid expansion too, and it is crucial that the preexisting condition exception never return.

      None of this changes the fact that Trump is a brutal racist and is supported by outright neo-Nazis like the National Policy Institute, an “alt-right” group advocating forced sterilization for nonwhite people and “peaceful ethnic cleansing.” Since ethnic cleansing would be resisted with armed force rather than votes for Hillery, peaceful ethnic cleansing is thus impossible and many of us are committed to making sure it never becomes possible.

      No amount of corruption in Weimar Germany could ever have justified Hitler and the Holocaust.
