Although that’s how many of us feel to the point of wanting to be sick, the good thing to keep in mind is that it really won’t come to an end, we just have to do more and work harder to make sure that all of the ugliness that has taken a foot hold of our country right now, can absolutely be beaten back into the cave it hid in.
If you are like me, you go from wanting to just tune out escaping all news because you know it will somehow relate back to the orange clown, to wanting to do whatever you can to resist and protest in both big and small ways.
Do NOT lose sight of the fact that we … lovers of the arts, champions for equal rights, students of science and free thinkers, tree huggers and self-proclaimed Hippies … won the election by close to 3 million votes.
The insane antiquated system that said… oops sorry… you may have won the popular vote by a crushing margin … but we rigged it so the popular vote didn’t count in the end … can’t change the fact that the vast majority of people voted for Hillary. This is still a liberal nation.
So come inauguration day, no matter how small the gesture, we need to show the REAL LOSER that we will never call him President and that we will never stop protesting him and his circus of crazy clowns.
Here are just some events and other things you can do to join the resistance.
The Womens March on Washington. If you can’t attend this event, you can donate to the cost of organizing it and providing for the folks who are going. You can also find local marches to attend.
Answer Coalition. Two locations have been secured, Freedom Plaza and the Navy Memorial site which will include a 20 foot sound stage along the inauguration route. They could use donations as well.
#Trump420. With Herr Trump opposing the legalization of Marijuana, DCMJ.org will be partaking in the use at 4 minutes and 20 seconds into the inauguration. They plan to gather at …
Dupont Circle at 8am for coffee & tea and parade down to the National Mall at 10am. Along the way we’ll hand out 4,200 joints of legally grown cannabis! At 4 minutes and 20 seconds into President Trump’s speech we’ll light up! (unless President Trump comes out now in support of full cannabis legalization in all 50 States and DC!)
Trump Tower Chicago Protest. With over 7k people already set to attend and 21k interested in going, here is the description of the event planned on Facebook:
This is a peaceful, non-violent demonstration showing discontent toward the rhetoric that won the president elect the election and continues to empower similar rhetoric and skewed thinking within groups of hateful people. This is meant to voice opposition to hate, and also voice support to the groups of people who will most need it in this time of uncertainty. THIS IS ONE EVENT AMONG MANY TO COME IN THE NEXT 4 YEARS. IT DOES NOT STOP HERE.
In an article from Reuters dated January 5th:
Only three of the more than 30 groups seeking to stage rallies either protesting or celebrating Trump’s election independently of the Trump Presidential Inaugural Committee have received permits to use National Park Service land before, during or after Trump’s inauguration.
The agency said it expected to begin issuing permits for demonstration sites on park land in coming days, an announcement that came a few hours after the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund said it would sue if the permits were not issued by Friday.
National Resist Day. This is being done the day before the inauguration with this explanation …
Why RESIST on January 19th?
We want to send a loud message to the incoming administration as they get ready to be sworn into office: “approach the next term with caution, because there are millions of people across the country that will RESIST any and all attacks on progress and democracy.
There are more than likely tons of other protests that will be going on, some planned, a lot will be a spur of the moment, but the goal is the same … RESIST.
I personally am hoping for lots of coverage of protests but I think it’s safe to say that most of it will be grass-roots reporting going out over social media.
If your plans include something you want to share, let us know!
