Echoing the sentiments of Reps. Maxine Waters and Al Green, activists and NYC residents pledged to demand Trump’s impeachment every week until he’s out of the White House
PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING MY WORK
New York City – Inspired by an impeachment article of Rep. Al Green (TX) and the sentiments of several other U.S. Congress members, direct action group Rise and Resist and NYC residents are beginning a Weekly Impeach Protest at the 40 Wall Street Trump Building on November 16, 2017; and committing to protest every Thursday until he’s gone from The White House.
Future protest locations include Trump Tower, Trump International Hotel, and several Trump properties around NYC.
While some are waiting with bated breath to see how many impeachable transgressions Mueller will uncover through his investigation, millions of Americans know that Donald Trump has committed numerous offenses already and are demanding that the process of getting him out of office begin now. Echoing the sentiments of Reps. Maxine Waters and Al Green, activists know Trump has committed ‘High Crimes and Misdemeanors’
“With his ‘many sides’ Charlottesville comments, pardoning of Joe Arpaio, the Muslim Ban, and his open disdain for a suffering Puerto Rico, this president has imprinted his personal racism on US policy and presence,” said Martin Quinn, member of Rise and Resist. “I can’t think of a more impeachable offense than that. ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’ doesn’t even scratch the surface.”
On Monday night, Maxine Waters led a celebrity crowd in an ‘Impeach 45!’ chant at the Glamour 2017 Women of the Year awards. Reps. Brad Sherman (CA) and Steve Cohen (TN) have sponsored articles of impeachment. A Public Policy Poll last month found that 49% of voters support impeaching Trump. The administration continues to alienate voters, and activists are more motivated than ever to reinforce the concerns and views of Americans through protest.
Rise and Resist is a direct action group committed to opposing, disrupting, and defeating any government act that threatens democracy, equality, and our civil liberties. Previous Rise and Resist actions include a “cough-in” at Jean-Georges restaurant, and a protest at Trump Tower against the Muslim ban, the ICE raids, and the proposed border wall where 26 members were arrested.
