The election is over, but the resistance begins now.
Trump ran a campaign based on racism and misogyny, and now his dangerous words are becoming actions. He promised change but has filled his administration with the usual suspects: Wall Street billionaires, corrupt politicians, and even white supremacists like Steve Bannon and Senator Jeff Sessions. This is not the change we need, and we must not normalize his actions.
Trump has called for mass deportations of undocumented immigrants, for attacking unions and workers’ rights, for taking away the right to choose, and even for cutting climate-change research after 2016 will be the hottest year on record.
Nobody can afford to “give Trump a chance.” This is why on Inauguration Day, January 20th, 2017, millions around the country are planning to launch a general strike: a full day of no work, no school, and no business-as-usual.
We are not just anti-Trump, but against our violent economy. We aren’t campaigning for a new president, but no more presidents. We want dignity. Our demand is everything. We will not stop until equality is achieved, and a general strike is just the first step. Organize with us, join us.
We are a loose collation of people from many different walks of life, including UC students and professors, but also local employees and surfers. Local activists and parents. Radicals and moderates. Tech workers and teachers. Join with us in striking hate out. Help Santa Cruz Resist.
