The DC Counter-Inaugural Welcoming Committee is coordinating plans to shut down the inauguration of Donald Trump. We need you to be a part of it. Join us on December 11th to participate in shaping our actions, strategies, and goals.
On Friday, January 20, 2017, Donald Trump will be inaugurated as President of the United States. We call on all people of conscience to shut down the ceremonies. If Trump is inaugurated at all, let it happen behind closed doors, showing the world that the vast majority of people in the U.S. do not support his presidency or consent to his rule.
This spokescouncil is open to individual activists, organization staff, affinity groups, collectives, artists, medics and healers, and anyone else who wants to help shut down the inauguration. Law enforcement and media are not welcome.
We are planning to shut down the January 20, 2017, presidential inauguration ceremonies through a mass mobilization of people from across the United States and a series of coordinated direct actions. This mobilization will set the tone of resistance for the next four years, and will focus on training, political education, and building grassroots activist networks among communities who will bear the brunt of Trump’s right-wing assault.
Trump stands for tyranny, greed, racism, and misogyny. He is the champion of neo-nazis and white nationalists, of police who kill Black, Brown and poor people on a daily basis, of racist border agents and sadistic prison guards, of the FBI and NSA who tap your phone and read your email. He is the harbinger of even more climate catastrophe, deportation, discrimination, and endless war.
