Anti-Trump filmmaker Michael Moore took to Facebook Tuesday night to outline the 5 things fellow anti-Trump liberals “can do right now about Donald J. Trump.”
Numbers 1, 2, 3 and 5 on the list are pretty bland: 1. Make your presence known, 2. Write to the DNC tonight, 3. Form your own rapid response team and 5. You should run for office.
But it’s No. 4 on the list — Moore’s call to “non-violently disrupt” the inauguration — that should get all of the attention:
Moore then links to the website Disrupt J20 which is advertising a “Festival of Resistance” counter march on the same day as Trump’s inauguration:
January 20th | 12PM | Columbus Circle | Festival of Resistance
The DC Counter-Inaugural Welcoming Committee is organizing a Festival of Resistance on inauguration day, beginning at 12pm at Columbus Circle (in front of Union Station), and marching to McPherson Square.
This march will be fully permitted, and we are organizing marching bands, drummers, puppets, and vibrant displays of art and culture to show the diversity and power of resistance to Trump’s agenda.
We need you to come out and join us to show that we won’t back down. We’ll march in solidarity to protect our communities and reject racism, sexism, transphobia, Islamophobia, ableism, and all forms of hate and oppression.
We will resist despair and fear with hope and resistance.
Great idea, Michael! There’s nothing America wants to see more during the transition of power than thousands of angry hippies in the streets!
