Why prepare to act? Why resist? Why protest?

The view from parts of Asia and Australia is that America gets what it deserves.  I don’t agree.  Resistance is something I plan but it started long ago–not just today.–kas

No Quarter!

This is Trump’s plan for his first 100 days:

  • Take away health insurance from 20 million Americans.
  • Begin mass deportation of 11 million undocumented immigrants.
  • Nominate a Supreme Court justice who will vote to end legal abortion.
  • Pass new libel laws targeting critical journalists.
  • Enact national “stop-and-frisk” laws.
  • Prosecute and potentially jail Hillary Clinton.

Trump may be reckless, but he means what he says. In January he will begin to act. His party controls both the House and the Senate, and will soon have control of the Supreme Court.

The peril cannot be exaggerated. Depression and despair are a luxury we cannot afford. We must organize and prepare to use all the remaining tools of citizenship- in the courts, the press and, when needed, the streets with massive civil disobedience.

People’s Action is up to this challenge. We have thousands of trained organizers in almost 40 states. We hoped this election would turn out differently. But hope won’t keep families together, defend earned benefits and protect the institutions of our Republic.
