Anti Trump Inauguration Rally & March

I have been absent from this blog to focus on my food and farming work and blog and my French Quarter research. While those remain important, with the rise of white nationalism into the highest office in our country, it is time to remind others of the relevance of New Orleans, a majority African-American city that has been defiant for generations against white privilege to those seeking examples.

J20Nola: Anti Trump Inauguration Rally & March
Friday at 3 PM - 6 PM

Duncan Park. City Hall Plaza

On January 20, Trump becomes President and starts to unleash a campaign of impoverishment, war, extreme racism, sexism, and homophobia. The plan to imprison, deport and discriminate against immigrants and Muslims is dangerous and real. Pretending to be for “the people” his cabinet is filling with white supremacists, environment destroyers, war crazy generals, and opponents of any social benefit we have won. We will see an increased curtailment of constitutional rights, more prisons, and less education. His cabinet is also a who’s who of Wall St. banks, hedge funds, fast food moguls, and opponents of higher wages.

In Washington and hundreds of cities across the U.S. January 20 will mark the first day of united mobilizations to resist and stop Trump’s war on the people. New Orleans should be counted on that day by bringing out thousands to say “We Will Not Go Back.”

We have to unite all of our work with a mighty voice and together we can move mountains.

#J20, is our counter-inauguration of the Trump regime, our day to inaugurate unity, and start the resistance.

So it is with urgency and confidence that we are sending out a call to all sectors in the struggle for social and economic justice to join together in a #J20Nola action.
