If Trump Takes Control of Russia Probe, Everyone is Taking to the Streets
The fine folks at Moveon.org and Indivisible SF have put a plan into action to take to the streets if the news breaks Trump is interfering with the Russia Probe. If this happens it is really serious and shows that Trump feels he is above the law. This is literally how dictatorships start.
Below is all the info from the Facebook invite:
BREAKING (Nov 7th): The Rapid Response protest has been triggered. WE ARE HITTING THE STREETS THURSDAY, NOV 8th AT 5PM at Civic Center.
(NOTE: if you’d like to sign up as a peacekeeper for this event, please fill out the volunteer form here.)
If Trump fires DAG Rod Rosenstein or finds a way to remove Robert Mueller or shuts down the Russian investigation, we will respond by taking to the streets ONE HOUR after hearing the news. If it happens after 8:00pm, we rally at 10:00am the following day.
If you haven’t already, please download the Amplify app and enable notifications.
Should this event happen, we will send out notifications and begin an instant mobilization.
Donald Trump is publicly considering firing special counsel Robert Mueller, the person leading the Department of Justice investigation of possible illegal actions by Donald Trump and members of his presidential campaign, and the efforts to conceal those activities.
This would be a constitutional crisis for our country. It would demand an immediate and unequivocal response to show that we will not tolerate abuse of power from Donald Trump.
Our response in the minutes and hours following a power grab will dictate what happens next, and whether Congress—the only body with the constitutional power and obligation to rein Trump in from his rampage—will do anything to stand up to him.
That’s why we’re preparing to hold emergency “Nobody is Above the Law” rallies around the country in the event they are needed.
Go here to find an event near you.
The San Francisco event will happen ONE HOUR after we hear that one of our red lines has been crossed, at Civic Center Plaza. If we get the news after 8:00pm, we rally at 10:00am the following morning.
San Francisco MoveOn event page is right here.
This is our moment to stand up to protect our democracy. Let’s mobilize to show that we won’t let Donald Trump become the authoritarian that he aspires to be. The law applies to all of us, and it’s essential that it also applies to the most powerful people in our country.
If you choose to attend an event, you agree to engage in nonviolent, peaceful action, to act lawfully, and to strive to de-escalate any potential confrontations with those who may disagree with our values.
