Two hundred people in New York City and another 100 in LA turned out for spirited demonstrations to announce the launch of the #OUTNOW! Movement. The Los Angeles protest was viciously attacked by MAGA fascist thugs.

These protests begin five weeks of protest to grow an unrelenting, nonviolent movement of mass protest that continues week after week to demand: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go—NOW! that kicks off sustained protests until their demand is met.

In NYC Andy Zee, spokesperson for RefuseFascism.org, said that the “image of #OUTNOW that was in front of the Trump Tower has to be seen all over the world. This regime should not go on one day longer, 2020 is too late. We’re not here to follow that routine of assemble, march, go home and live your life. We have to get out and stay in the streets, disrupt business as usual, not only for ourselves but because humanity demands it.”

Cornel West, who kicked off the rally in Union Square, spoke after the march left Trump Tower: “We have culminated a magnificent march, we have initiated a historic anti-fascist coalition. I stand with those who are willing to put their bodies on the line and make their voices heard to make sure that there will never ever be a fascism in the United States of America.”

The New York rally was also addressed by Carl Dix; Sharonne Salaam—whose son Yusuf Salaam was one of the Central Park 5 attacked by Donald Trump at the time of his trial and who has continued to be attacked by Trump in the years since; as well as Juanita Young and Hawa Bah—whose sons were murdered by the NYPD. The New York Union Square rally marched 50 blocks to Trump Tower, where they spelled out #OUTNOW! in huge letters.

The rally in Los Angeles was attacked by a dozen fascist thugs wielding flag poles who targeted leaders of LA Refuse Fascism and pepper sprayed demonstrators in the eyes. Refuse Fascism was not deterred and marched forward, and vowed they would be back next week.

Both marches were marked by the presence of youth, many coming into protests against the Trump/Pence fascist regime for the first time, expressing a fierce determination to drive it out and fight for their future.
