Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore has posted 5 things on his Facebook page that anti-Trump liberals “can do right now about Donald J. Trump.”
1. Make your presence known, 2. Write to the DNC tonight, 3. Form your own rapid response team and 5. You should run for office.
But, number 4 is something you never imagined, and it can affect the big inauguration.
Namely, Moore suggested that liberals “non-violently disrupt” the inauguration:
4. MAKE PLANS NOW TO BE AT THE INAUGURATION WEEKEND PROTESTS! We need millions in the streets in DC — and that’s what it looks like it’s shaping up to be. The big march will be the day after the Inauguration – the Million Women March on January 21st. Click here for details https://www.facebook.com/events/2169332969958991/. On January 20th – Inauguration Day – a call has been gone out to non-violently disrupt the proceedings. Go to http://www.disruptj20.org/ and learn about civil disobedience on that day. Planes and trains are already selling out, as are hotels. Contact the above sites to get info on buses and housing (or charter your own bus from your town). Everyone who can should be there. If you can’t make it, find (or organize) a local protest in your area. Take the day off. No one should be silent that day.
Moore then posted a link to the website Disrupt J20. This organization is having a “Festival of Resistance” counter march on January 20. Yes, it’s the same day as Trump’s inauguration:
January 20th | 12PM | Columbus Circle | Festival of Resistance
The DC Counter-Inaugural Welcoming Committee is organizing a Festival of Resistance on inauguration day, beginning at 12pm at Columbus Circle (in front of Union Station), and marching to McPherson Square.
This march will be fully permitted, and we are organizing marching bands, drummers, puppets, and vibrant displays of art and culture to show the diversity and power of resistance to Trump’s agenda.
We need you to come out and join us to show that we won’t back down. We’ll march in solidarity to protect our communities and reject racism, sexism, transphobia, Islamophobia, ableism, and all forms of hate and oppression.
We will resist despair and fear with hope and resistance.
What do you think of Moore’s actions?
