From RefuseFascism.org: On January 20, despite the protests of thousands and the anguish and anger stretching all around the world, the powers-that-be intend to inaugurate the Trump-Pence regime of fascism.
The Trump-Pence regime would be more than the sum of the many abuses and outrages it plans to perpetrate. If not prevented from ruling, it will be, as a regime, FASCIST--a blatant dictatorship relying on open terror and violence, committing atrocities against groups of people identified as "enemies," "undesirables," or "dangers to society." A Trump-Pence regime would not only be illegitimate; if allowed to go forward it could be catastrophic for humanity.
Protest is important, but more than protest is needed. We must actually go all out, now, to prevent this regime from ruling. We are, this weekend, hundreds of thousands protesting. Through staying in the streets and disrupting business as usual, over the next few days and into next week, we could together grow to millions and bring into being a major political crisis, to which all the factions in the power structure would have to react.
Stay in the streets, in DC and everywhere else.
In the name of humanity,
we refuse to accept a fascist America.
**We'll talk to Carl Dix from the Revolutionary Communist Party and Refuse Fascism about the moment we're in, and their plans for the next few days.
**We'll also hear an interview with Michael Mann, a leading climate scientist, about climate change, Trump, and the attacks on scientists. Michael Mann is Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science at Penn State University. He is author of more than 200 peer-reviewed and edited publications, and has published several books including Dire Predictions: Understanding Climate Change, The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines, and his latest, The Madhouse Effect: How Climate Change Denial Is Threatening Our Planet, Destroying Our Politics, and Driving Us Crazy, co-authored with Washington Post editorial cartoonist Tom Toles.
