Jesus Radicals Blog 2005-2017
A call for a national and global day of action is being circulated for January 20th, 2017—inauguration day. Fellow Jesus radicals are encouraged to join this day of resistance in whatever way possible—be it conveneing with the main mobilization in Washington D.C. or by organizing collective actions and demonstrations locally whereever you are. Additionally we encourage all to participate in the inauguration day General Strike to bring business as usual to a screeching halt. As the collective witholding of our labor is one of the most effective weapons we possess against those who exploit and claim mastery over us, a mass refusal to work on January 20th will send a clear message that we refuse to tolerate the rampantly white-supremacist, hyper-nationalist, anti-immigrant, and anti-muslim vision of America being heralded by this changing of the guard. Join us in this commitment for no work, no school, no shopping to instead hit the streets and demonstrate our collective power.
National actions are being organized through DisruptJ20.org and the related Facebook Event Page which can be used to get more information about and plugin to the main mobilization in Washington D.C. as well as other local actions and events across the nation.
The original call to action from #DisruptJ20:
We call on all people of good conscience to join in disrupting the ceremonies. If Trump is to be inaugurated at all, let it happen behind closed doors, showing the true face of the security state Trump will preside over. It must be made clear to the whole world that the vast majority of people in the United States do not support his presidency or consent to his rule.
