PRESS RELEASE (11/6/2019)

#OutNow! to Denounce White Supremacists Trump, Pence at Atlanta Launch of “Black Voices for Trump”

Trump and Pence are coming to Atlanta to launch a “Black Voices for Trump” coalition, claiming that they are the “champions” for Black people in America.

The #OutNow movement is mobilizing people to be at the GWCC to say “Hell No! Trump/Pence Must GO – NOW!”

Trump has called Atlanta’s 5th District “horrible” and “falling apart (not to mention crime infested)”; Chicago “more dangerous than Afghanistan”; Baltimore “disgusting, rat and rodent infested”; Africa and Haiti “sh*thole countries”; white supremacists “very fine people.”

Last week, addressing a convention of police chiefs in Chicago, Trump announced:

▪ A “surge” targeting “gangs and drug traffickers in high crime cities,” code words for a war on Black and Brown communities.
▪ $600 million of surplus military equipment to police, like the tanks used in Ferguson, Missouri against protesters after the police killing of Michael Brown.
▪ Opposition to federal consent decrees placing mild restrictions on police brutality and terror.
“This is a fascist, white-supremacist police state unfolding,” says Carl Dix, co-initiator of RefuseFascism.org and representative of the Revolutionary Communist Party.

“What Trump has actually done for Black people, and for everybody else, is barrel ahead hammering an all-out fascist program into place, one that will be a catastrophe for humanity. Everybody who hates the horrors the Trump/Pence regime is enforcing on Black people needs to take to the streets and stay in the street till this fascist regime is driven from power.”

The Trump/Pence regime poses a catastrophic danger to humanity and the planet. The #OUTNOW! movement was launched by Refuse Fascism in late October with one unified demand: “The Trump/Pence Regime Must GO – NOW!”

Saturday Nov 9 the national “OUTNOW! movement will take to the streets in at least 15 cities across the country in the fourth of five weeks of protest aimed at at building an unrelenting, non-violent, sustained mass movement, like those spreading around the world from Hong Kong to Chile to Lebanon, with one goal – driving the Trump/Pence Regime from power. Visit RefuseFascism.org for details.
