One week into the Trump/Pence regime - A New Juncture: RefuseFascism-LA Meeting Wed., 2/1

We received the following from RefuseFascism-LA:

Southern California resisters!

This has been an intense week, both seeing the fascist Trump/Pence regime moving very rapidly to consolidate their rule, as well as huge numbers of people around the country powerfully resisting the executive orders.

Join us at the next important organizing meeting on Wednesday, February 1st at 6:30 PM at Echo Park United Methodist Church, 1226 N. Alvarado Blvd., just off of Sunset, in Echo Park, Los Angeles.  

As is written in A Letter from Carl Dix, Sunsara Taylor, and Andy Zee, Coming To Grips With The New Situation, from

"So we stand at a new juncture. The regime is in power, and moving quickly. At the same time, millions have registered their opposition and many are looking for a way to fight. Over these next few weeks, will be covering the regime and the resistance to it with the same intensity and level of analysis that we have since the election.

Right now it is very important that those who came together around stay together, reflect on and sum up the rich experience of the past six weeks, and develop new strategy. As one key element of this, it will be important to join with and at times initiate actions against the outrages continually perpetrated by Trump, reaching out to others and sharing perspectives with them.
For the two bedrock points from which we joined with others to start this initiative remain true. One, that this regime is indeed fascist and as such poses a mortal threat and must be defeated. And two, that there are people - millions and tens of millions - who can potentially be mobilized to fight against it and who must be led to step outside the confines of politics-as-usual (including protest-as-usual) to actually OUST this horrendous monstrosity."
Right now, one of the crucial ways to participate is to donate to the local fundraiser so that we can continue to produce much-needed and very welcomed No! posters, stickers, and flyers which are projecting and cohering a powerful force around this message.
