Our malicious child-president Donald Trump has demanded,
“I want a parade like the one in France.”
The Pentagon is reviewing potential dates for a military parade that would be the latest page out of Trump’s wannabe-dictator playbook.
This parade would be a barely-veiled threat not just to the rest of world, but to internal dissent and opposition to the Trump Administration and its policies.
IF IT HAPPENS we will rally at the same time and place to show our opposition to this authoritarian spectacle.
We will not be intimidated by this pathetic show of force. People like us made those tanks, and people like us will be driving those tanks. Not President Bone-Spur with his five draft deferments.
WHY WE RALLY
We condemn the cost of a military parade—millions of dollars that could be used to improve lives instead.
We love our neighbors, our family, and our friends, but this does not equate with hatred of those we have never met or who live in a different part of our world.
We see those in other countries as our fellow humans, not as enemies, and not as people to be looked down on and dominated.
We denounce militarism and wars of conquest which only serve to enrich defense contractors.
We believe that the best way to support our troops is to stop sending them to other countries to die fighting rich men’s wars.
Gather in DC at the same time and place of the proposed military march. (The time and place have not been determined yet.)
Our massive and immediate opposition to this military march may be enough to make the Trump Administration think twice about the wisdom of this move, which is currently in the "just a bad idea" phase of planning.
Bring your signs, bring your voices.
At this date no formal rally with speeches is planned.
The most important thing we can do is show up to say to the Trump Administration and the world that the American people are not on board with this.
Please note that we do not need a permit, or any other permission from the government or authority figures, to express our First Amendment rights. Let’s keep it that way!
If you would like to plan a local sister rally please send a PM.
