In the Name of Humanity â€“ NO! No Muslim Ban! No Walls! First They Came for… Not This Time!
CHICAGOâ€”(ENEWSPF)â€”February 9, 2017.Â On Saturday, February 11 at 3 pm, there will be a rally/march at 2200 W. Devon, in Chicago hosted by representatives of the Devon Avenue community, Refuse Fascism – Chicago, and Degenerate Artists Against Fascism. This event will build on the massive demonstrations in airports and elsewhere across the U.S. and in other parts of the world, and last Saturdayâ€™s (February 4) rally of 75-100 on Devon Ave here,Â against Trump-Penceâ€™s fascist attacks on Muslims and immigrants overall.
Many of these protests completely upended business as usual, and continue. People from all walks of life are invited and expected to attend: Muslims, Jews, Christians, atheists; Pakistanis, Indians, African-Americans, immigrants from everywhere, Latinos and whites; LGBT people, coming together in determined, vocal opposition.
Trumpâ€™s Muslim travel ban is not only cruel, immoral and illegalâ€”it is FASCIST. The Trump-Pence fascist regime has not only escalated its extreme xenophobia (irrational fear of people from other countries) and nationalism, demonizing and unleashing terror against those it deems as â€œenemies,â€ â€œundesirables,â€ or â€œdangers to society.â€ It has also gone further in shredding what have up till now been the supposed civil and legal rights of the people and the â€œchecks and balancesâ€ which have long been considered foundational to U.S. society.
The Trump/Pence regime is illegitimate and must be driven from power. Only this can avert the brewing catastrophe for the planet and its people.
