The Twin Cities General Defense Committee Local 14 of the Industrial Workers of the World calls for all anti-racists and anti-fascists who want to put a stop to Donald Trump’s racist agenda to converge in Minneapolis on Friday the 19th to confront Trump and his hateful supporters.
Donald Trump’s campaign has been a crusade against many of the marginalized elements of the working class. He has said vile and disgusting things about Muslims, immigrants, queer and trans people, people of color, the disabled, Jews, and union workers. His campaign has emboldened white supremacist, Neo-Nazi, and other fascist and racist hate groups like the Traditionalist Worker Party, Ku Klux Klan, and the National Socialist Movement. He represents a rising tide of far-right elements organizing to defend a racist social order that is crumbling under the pressure of urban revolt against police violence and dissidence in the prisons, not to mention the many other social movements for liberation that have also been gaining ground in the so-called United States.
We are an organization that exists to defend the working class against all attacks and attempts to divide it. It is for that reason and our own desire to see a better world that we ask all like minded individuals answer this call, and to show the world that the Twin Cities will not stand for Trump or his racism. Defend the working class, unite against fascism!
