Protesters to Gather in Woodruff Park and March to the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta
Wednesday, April 24th, Noon
Location: International Peace Fountain in Woodruff Park Auburn Avenue and Peachtree Street
This Nightmare Must End:
The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
On Wednesday, April 24th, President Trump will be in Atlanta to address the Rx Drug Abuse and Heroin Summit at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta. Protesters will gather at the International Peace Fountain in Woodruff Park at Noon and march to the hotel where Trump is scheduled to speak at 1 PM. The Atlanta chapter of national activist group RefuseFascism.org has joined in coalition to organize this protest with A Chance for Georgia, Democracy Spring GA, Georgia Alliance for Social Justice, Indivisible, and others.
RefuseFascism.org issued a statement that says in part, “The Mueller Report revealed a regime with utter contempt for truth and rule of law, hell-bent on crushing opposition of any kind. At this critical moment we must bring forward the movement that can act in a way commensurate with the danger this regime poses to humanity. This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!”
Protesters will speak out against the myriad of outrages perpetrated by the Trump/Pence regime just in the past month:
• Inciting violent fascist threats against Ilhan Omar, and Muslims in general.
• Unleashing armed fascist vigilantes who were caught terrorizing immigrants at gunpoint.
• Encouraging Georgia and other States to pass laws banning abortion all together in the expectation that Trump’s Supreme Court may overturn Roe v. Wade and once again drive women to forced motherhood or dangerous illegal abortions.
• Ratcheting up economic sanctions and military threats against Iran, green-lighting moves by Israel to annex the West Bank with dire consequences for the Palestinians, and wielding starvation and threats of military intervention to provoke regime change in Venezuela.
Refusefascism.org is a movement of people of diverse political perspectives united in our recognition that the Trump/Pence regime poses a catastrophic threat to humanity and the planet. From the Call to Action: “We need to organize now for the time when we can launch massive, sustained nonviolent protests in the streets of cities and towns across the country – protests that continue day after day and don’t stop, creating the kind of political situation in which the demand that the Trump/Pence regime be removed from power is met.”
