Drop the Charges! Free the #Freeway9 and #UCLA5!

The #Freeway9 and #UCLA5 are facing criminal charges for blocking the 101 Freeway in Los Angeles in the fall of 2017 and disrupting Steve Mnuchin at UCLA in the spring of 2018. These actions were in response to a call from for a movement of millions to drive the Trump/Pence fascist regime from power through mass, sustained, nonviolent protest in the streets. The defendants are facing years in jail and thousands of dollars in fines. Stand with the #Freeway9 and #UCLA5 for their courageous stand! Coming up next in the case:

Pre-trial hearing,
Monday, July 22, 8:30 a.m.
Pack the courtroom:
Metropolitan Courthouse,
1945 S. Hill.


    Why is it important to understand that the Trump/Pence regime is fascist?
    What are the roots and causes of the rise of fascism in the U.S.?
    How can we understand—and what are the implications of—the role of Christian fascism in this regime?
    Why is there a direct line between the Confederacy and the Trump/Pence regime?
  • Why do people resist confronting the full horror that this regime poses… and to the extent they do confront it, why are they not acting on this understanding?
  • What is the role of thinking of the broad belief in “America as the ‘good guys’” in facilitating the rise—and further consolidation—of fascism?
  • Why are the top Democrats determined to keep things within the “established norms” and “acceptable limits”—and what will that mean?
    What must—and can—be done in the face of this fascist regime?
