Sights and Sounds from July 7 Protests to Demand: This Nightmare Must End! The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!

July 7, 2018 – 9:45pm | Revolution Newspaper |


On July 7, people in at least a dozen cities took to the streets responding to a call from Refuse Fascism: “Immigrants and refugees terrorized, mass detention camps, thousands of children still separated from parents... The Supreme Court on the verge of a fascist majority for generations... Take to the streets in cities and towns nationwide TO DEMAND: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!” In New York City, Andy Zee, one of the initiators of Refuse Fascism addressed the crowd, saying, “The world as we have know it is being torn asunder... The old order is, as Bob Dylan said, rapidly fading. This is important to understand, why it is we think that the only way to stop what is happening here is for people to start organizing now, so that the people who are here start organizing for the time when thousands can take to the streets in cities around the country and stay in the streets, day after day, night after night.... so that there is a political crisis in this country such that the powers that be are forced to remove this Trump/Pence Regime.”

These actions were important: People stepping out to protest all the horrors of the fascist Trump/Pence Regime AND demanding that the whole must regime go! With urgency, determined to organize and mobilize people nationwide so that millions can take to the streets, day after day, night after night to drive out this regime. As the Refuse Fascism call for the protests says, “We—the masses of people—must act to stop this whole fascist program and demand that this illegitimate, immoral, regime be removed from power. This cannot wait until November. The Trump/Pence Regime will not be bound by the normal political process—they are shattering norms, remaking the courts, radically altering the whole political and global landscape. The Democratic Party will not stop this. For them, empire and order is more important than justice, even if that means the order of fascism.”
