F*ck Yea We Disrupted It
Featured Blog Post
On the day of Inauguration, DisruptJ20 had 12 direct actions: one at each of the security checkpoints leading onto the inaugural parade route and the commencement ceremony.

At seven of these checkpoints, activists’ explicit goal was to prevent people from passing through, and they achieved that goal. In total, we estimate that more than 2,400 folks were willing to risk arrest that morning to prevent folks from peacefully attending the inaugural ceremonies. At noon, more than 5,000 people marched from Union Station to McPherson Square, where DisruptJ20 had an ongoing presence all day, including 30 local organizations tabling under our warming tent. These numbers do not include the numerous autonomous actions that happened throughout DC, including the anti-capitalist bloc, Workers World Party marches, a march by Refuse Fascism blocking Route 395, and many others....

Communities Under Attack Checkpoint Blockade

As right-wing extremists descend onto the Nation’s Capital to celebrate the inauguration of Donald Trump and his dangerous policies, communities targeted by his campaign and supporters will come together to resist.

At a time when the soon-to-be President openly talks about banning Muslims from entering this country, elected officials seek to speed up deportations and Neo-Nazi’s threaten to stage armed marches through Jewish communities, a wall of solidarity is needed to protect those most at risk in the new administration. By standing together and loudly proclaiming resistance to these threats, we will fight back and build a new, welcoming future together.

Drawing inspiration from rich, multi-cultural and multi-ethnic traditions, we will creatively and nonviolently confront those celebrating the victory of a campaign based on the persecution and dehumanization of Muslims, Immigrants, Jews and others. This action will lay the groundwork for four years of resistance to the politicians and policies that threaten to tear these communities apart.

Our existence is proof of our resistance, and we will make our presence heard.

We are committed to nonviolence, and are inspired by Martin Luther King’s 6 principles of nonviolence. Learn more here: http://www.thekingcenter.org/king-philosophy
