Hi. We’d like to ask you to contribute funds to Refuse Fascism before the Trump/Pence regime commits more and possibly even greater crimes.  

Your contribution will go toward something urgently needed: nationwide, sustained mass protests to drive out the Trump/Pence regime in the next period.

We need to realize Trump’s ascendance to power is not a “pendulum swing.”Already the Trump/Pence regime has made startling progress in bolting down a fascist society and government.  What if Trump were to win in 2020?  What if he loses, and doesn’t leave?  And if we were to wait, what would be the state of the planet by 2020? 

This is a decades-in-the-making fascist movement that has seized power in the U.S. through the normal workings of this system.  Now in power the Trump/Pence regime is shredding democratic rights, whipping up white-supremacist massacres, openly threatening to murder millions of people in a nuclear holocaust in the Middle East and Central Asia, and more.

It’s not enough to abhor this regime or to insist things will “work out.”  Absent millions protesting in the streets Trump/Pence pose an existential threat to humanity and the planet itself.  A different kind of protest is possible and needed: non-violent, sustained national protests, starting in our thousands, ultimately involving millions, a movement that does not stop until our demand is met:The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!  

Puerto Rico and Hong Kong are current day expressions of the type of protests that need to happen in the U.S.  Funds are needed for everything from rent, phones and wifi, to street posters, flyers, banners, on-line advertising and more.

People have waited on the Mueller report, then the mid-terms, been to large protests and gone home, and isn’t the Democratic Party guilty of collaborating with these fascists, including to fund billions of dollars of their security apparatus at the U.S./Mexico border?

Right now the Democratic Party-connected LA City Attorney Mike Feuer is working with the LAPD (who has been caught illegally spying on Refuse Fascism) to aggressively prosecute 11 Refuse Fascism members after hitting them with 57 criminal charges - for carrying out constitutionally protected speech!

We've attached important articles (herehere, and here) that have appeared in a range of newspapers, incuding the LA Times and The Guardian, about Refuse Fascism and the illegitate criminal charges targeting members of our organization, and the illegal spying carried out by the LAPD aimed at disrupting our organizing efforts to remove the Trump/Pence regime.  Your contribution will help us challenge and defeat this legal attack, in the courts and in our mass campaign to Drop The Charges Against The Freeway 9 and UCLA 5.

What do we tell the immigrant children in cages and the tens of thousands of migrants in forced imprisonment in concentration camps along the border?  The Black and oppressed people of Chicago, as Trump threatens a heightened police-state with occupation by Federal troops.  The women hurled back into a dark-ages misogyny?  The families of those massacred in El Paso and Gilroy, Pittsburg and Charleston because of the color of their skin or the religion they practice?  What do we tell humanity, as this Trump/Pence regime threatens mass murder (just recently of 10 million people in Afghanistan) and all the interconnected eco-systems of this planet (as this regime guts the Endangered Species Act).

It would be unconscionable and irresponsible to wait for 2020.  Please donate now to the only organization that has identified, from day one, this regime as fascist and has a plan and strategy for non-violent, mass, sustained protests of thousands of people, growing to millions, in the very near future, toremove this fascist regime.  Refuse Fascism’s Call to Action is here.

Best, Refuse Fascism So Cal
