It Takes Millions of Protesters In the Streets to Drive Out a Fascist State -- We've Demonstrated the Ability to Do Just That

World Can't Wait | February 11, 2017

Donald Trump is considering a 'brand new' immigration order after the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld suspension of his travel ban Thursday. "You'll see something next week," said the President. His January 27 executive order barred people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering for 90 days and barred all refugees for 120 days. Refugees from Syria were banned indefinitely. The action triggered widespread condemnation.

newbanMoral outrage is a powerful force, stronger perhaps than institutional process. We have witnessed its utility to disable the racist attack on international travelers to the United States. Principled protest proved to be a particularly useful tool for timely release of those falsely imprisoned. 

Delayed justice is a characteristic of illegitimate governance. The immediate response of so many people, in airports across the globe, to suppression of free passage for Muslim visitors, inspires commitment to stop the Trump Regime in its tracks.

Adapting the original Call to Drive Out the Bush Regime to our current situation,

We must, and can, aim to create a political situation where the Trump regime's program is repudiated, where Trump himself is driven from office, and where the whole direction he has been taking society is reversed. We, in our millions, must and can take responsibility to change the course of history.
