DC November 27: Rally To Defend J20 Resistance

Everyone who wants a free world: we need you to show up to win this fight.

Rally To Defend J20 Resistance, Monday November 27, 8:00am9:30am EST. Courthouse at 500 Indiana Ave NW, in Washington DC.

On January 20, 2017, tens of thousands of people converged in Washington, D.C. for the #DisruptJ20 protests to oppose the inauguration of Donald Trump. A combination of blockades, marches, and festive demonstrations shattered the spectacle of a peaceful transition of power and made it clear around the world that people do not recognize Trump’s authority.

What could have been a day signaling resignation and defeat became a moment of defiance and resistance.

The protests on J20 set a tone and precedent for the events that unfolded shortly after, including the notably successful, mass direct actions at airports against Trump’s Muslim ban, as well as ongoing resistance to deportations.

While Trump and his alt-right footsoldiers have encountered few meaningful obstacles from liberal politicians in the halls of power, grassroots resistance has continued to prove a substantial force.

With resistance comes repression. Like so many others this year—St Louis; New Orleans; Philly—activists have faced rounds of repression never seen before. On January 20th, 200+ protesters were mass-arrested and now face 6 decades in prison. Their cell phones were confiscated and searched, their homes were raided, and their social media data was seized. Defendants also experienced sexual assault at the hands of DC police (MPD).

The charges against J20 defendants are an experiment. If the courts are able to successfully prosecute those arrested at J20, this will send a green light to the forces of repression seeking to contain, control, and eliminate social movements around the country.

Show your solidarity with #J20 defendants by showing up at the courthouse and demand an end to repression of expression and exitance.
