We received the following from Los Angeles organizers for


NO! In The Name Of Humanity, We REFUSE To Accept A Fascist America!

Trump-Pence Fascism MUST BE STOPPED Before It Starts

just west of Highland. Ave. Hollywood, CA 90028

All across the country, people will demonstrate on New Year's Eve outside of Trump owed properties ~ WE ARE BUILDING A MOVEMENT TO PREVENT THE TRUMP/PENCE REGIME FROM TAKING POWER!

Converge on NEW YEAR'S EVE at 6pm
Brietbart Headquarters
8383 Wilshire Blvd.
Beverly Hills, CA 90211
(Followed by march to West Hollywood)

Breitbart News Service headquarters are on Wilshire Blvd. near San Vicente, in Beverly Hills, CA.  One of the first things Trump did after the election was appoint Steve Bannon, Brietbart's (former) executive chairman as "Chief Strategist" and "Senior Counselor" for the Trump-Pence regime.  Breitbart New Service is the major national website and voice for fascists who are deeply steeped in white supremacy, women-hating misogyny, homophobic anti-LBGT ravings, and virulent anti-Semitism.  They whip up a violent agenda against all Muslims, Latino immigrants and more.  Steve Bannon has been the owner and "hands on" force behind Breitbart, before he took over running Trumps campaign and now is a key person leading the strategy of Trump-Pence to impose a fascist America on the world.  NO!  In The Name Of Humanity, We REFUSE To Accept A Fascist America! We are converging at Brietbart headquarters and hitting the streets NEW YEARS EVE with thousands of others across the country to declare our intention to mobilize millions to STOP the Trump-Pence fascist regime BEFORE it starts.

A really critical emergency organizing meeting to stop the Trump and Pence regime before it starts took place on December 19 in New York City's Cooper Union. At least 260 people came out on very short notice, and over 200,000 watched online. They heard a diversity of voices: scientists, religious leaders, artists, immigrants, a leader at Standing Rock, feminists and revolutionary activists.

We'll hear excerpts from statements by Carl Dix, Jeremy Scahill, PZ Myers, Fran Luck, Sunsara Taylor, Andy Zee and others.

* Breitbart News Service is the major national website and voice of the Alt-Right - i.e. Fascists.  Steve Bannon, Trump's new white-house Chief Strategist was its former executive chairman.    When Dylann Roof murdered nine black people in North Carolina and posed with the  Confederate flag, Breitbart ran an article headlined "Hoist it High and Proud: The Confederate  Flag Proclaims a Glorious Heritage."  Bannon signed off on this piece.
IN LOS ANGELES:  On Wednesday night, December 21, 68 residents, activists representing representing several organizations from diverse backgrounds, artists, filmmakers, students, and clergy gathered at the United Methodist Church in LA for an emergency organizing meeting, taking up the call to build and mobilize to say NO!

Livestream Today, 12/19 at 4 PM PST - Stop Trump/Pence Regime from Taking Power

We are staring down the barrel of fascism. That is what the Trump-Pence regime represents, and it will be a disaster for humanity if this regime succeeds in taking over the full reins of power. 

Tonight an Emergency Town Hall and Organizing Meeting is taking place at Cooper Union in New York City. We urge all of you to watch the livestream at HuffPo's Facebook  at 4 PM PST (or attend if you are back East). There is nothing more important than this battle.  This meeting is kicking off a Month of Resistance under the slogan: "NO! In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!"  

Below is the announcement from the organizers for the Emergency Meeting in NYC.

The election of Trump presents us all with an urgent and unprecedented situation, requiring the imagination and daring able to wrest open possibility. What follows is a plan to actually prevent the Trump-Pence regime from consolidating power.

from the Mission and Plan for a Month of Massive Resistance
"Imagine if people, in the tens of millions, filled the streets, powerfully declaring that this regime is illegitimate and demanding that it not be allowed to rule!  The whole political landscape would be dramatically transformed, every faction within the established power structure would be forced to respond-and all this could well lead to a situation in which this fascist regime is actually prevented from ruling. This is not some idle dream but something which could be made a reality if all those who hate what is represented by this fascist regime translate their outrage into firm determination and massive mobilization to create the conditions which make this possible."

"NO! In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America"

NO! In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!
In the Name of Humanity,
We REFUSE To Accept a Fascist America! 

Donald Trump, the President-elect, is assembling a regime of grave danger. Millions of people in the U.S. and around the world are filled with deep anxiety, fear, and disgust. Our anguish is right and just.  Our anger must now become massive resistance - before Donald Trump is inaugurated and has the full reins of power in his hands.
Should we fail to rise with determination and daring in our millions 
now to stop this, the consequences for humanity will be disastrous. We, the undersigned, know in the depths of our beings, the catastrophe that will befall the people of the world should the Trump/Pence regime assume full power.
We therefore CALL FOR A MONTH OF RESISTANCE beginning on December 19th, reaching a crescendo by the January 20th 2017 Inauguration.
Our resistance must spread rapidly to every sphere and every corner of the country. Because we refuse to accept a fascist America, millions must rise up in a resistance with a deep determination such that we create a political crisis that prevents the Trump/Pence fascist regime from consolidating its hold on the governance of society.
The Presidency of Donald Trump is illegitimate.
Donald Trump did not win the popular vote. Not even close, he lost by 2.5 million votes. He won the Electoral College - an institution set up in 1787 to protect slavery.  This legacy of the most brutal oppression of Black people has become the means that enabled the election of Trump and Pence.
More fundamentally, it is the fascist character of the Trump/Pence regime and what they are planning to do which renders it illegitimate and an immoral peril to the future of humanity and the earth itself.                  
Under the slogan "Make America Great Again," Donald Trump has viciously attacked Mexicans and Muslims, threatening to register and deport millions, closing borders. He incites fear and hate of all who are "different" - nationalities, religions, or gender. He crudely demeans and degrades women, openly boasting about molesting them. He champions white supremacy and whips up a racist lynch-mob mentality. Trump has mocked the disabled. He is a bellicose militarist, who threatens to use nuclear weapons. He openly advocates war crimes - including torture. He vows to pack the Supreme Court with justices who will take away the right to abortion and gay rights. He denies science - calling climate change a hoax and will wreak devastation on the environment. He has attacked and threatened the press and stirred up his supporters to do the same. He has threatened to strip citizenship for constitutionally protected dissent. Trump has utter contempt for facts and the truth, and consistently lies to advance his agenda. As for the rule of law, Trump went so far as to openly threaten his opponent, Hillary Clinton, not only with jail, but even assassination. By any definition, Donald Trump is a fascist.  He has put together a regime that will carry out this  program, and worse.
This is fascism and it is a very serious thing. It has direction and momentum that must be stopped before it becomes too late.
Fascism foments and relies on xenophobic nationalism, racism, misogyny, and the aggressive re-institution of oppressive "traditional values." Fascism feeds on and encourages the threat and use of violence to build a movement and come to power. Fascism, once in power, essentially eliminates traditional democratic rights. Fascism attacks, jails, even executes its opponents, and launches violent mob attacks on "minorities." In Nazi Germany in the 1930s and '40s, fascism did all these things. This is where this can go.  And yes, Hitler himself could "talk graciously" when he felt it would serve his interests and lull his opponents.
In the world today, shockwaves reverberate.  Over decades in the U.S. virulent movements of white supremacy and anti-immigrant hysteria have gained momentum. A narrow, intolerant, and political form of Christian fundamentalism has been brought into government and policy at all levels. The Trump/Pence cabinet and judiciary will coalesce all of this and worse at the highest level of power, with horrific consequences. No election, whether fair or fraudulent, should legitimize this. "Reaching across the aisle" only legitimizes that which is illegitimate.
If you work with fascists you normalize the road to horror. You cannot try to "wait things out." Those who lived through Nazi Germany and sat on the sidelines, looking on as Hitler demonized, criminalized, and eventually rounded up one group after another, became shameful collaborators with monstrous crimes. Don't Conciliate...Don't Accommodate...Don't Collaborate!
The Trump Regime Must and Can Be Stopped Before It Starts!
This is not wishful thinking but could be made a reality if all who hate what is represented by this fascist regime translate our outrage into massive mobilization to create the political conditions which make this possible.  We are millions. Our only recourse now is to act together outside normal channels.  Every faction within the established power structure must be forced to respond to what we do - creating a situation where the Trump/Pence regime is prevented from ruling.
We call on each and every one who opposes what this regime stands for, and what it will do, to take part in and actively build, this resistance and refusal.  Organize.  Plan.  Act.
The Month of Resistance
Starting 12/19/16, it begins - the day the Electoral College meets to vote 
in each state: hold a press conference or a protest. Starting now, distribute this Call everywhere and on social media, host house meetings, fundraising events, concerts, and forums. Everywhere step up the resistance: walkouts from schools and work, protests against attacks and threats on Muslims, women, people of color, LGBT people - all linked to the objective of Stopping the Trump/Pence regime. The struggle must grow.
On MLK weekend, there needs to be massive demonstrations of many thousands in key cities, including Washington, DC, that grow to millions over the next week,  protests that don't stop . . . where people refuse to leave and more and more people stand up with conviction and courage demanding:

NO! We Refuse To Accept a Fascist America!

Dahr Jamail on Trump, Climate Change, and 
the Future of the Planet
2016 will be the hottest year ever recorded. The previous hottest year on record was last year. The need for dramatic government intervention aimed at lessening impacts of anthropogenic climate disruption (ACD) is a matter of life and death for thousands of species, and millions of humans. 

The president elect, Donald Trump, has called the science of climate change "bullshit" and a "hoax." He has appointed other science deniers to prominent positions. We'll talk with Dahr Jamail about this. Dahr Jamail  is a Truthout staff reporter, and the author of The Will to Resist: Soldiers Who Refuse to Fight in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Beyond the Green Zone: Dispatches From an Unembedded Journalist in Occupied Iraq.

Dahr will also comment on the announcement that the war criminal James Mattis will be appointed Secretary of Defense.
