Inauguration Day Walk Out: Dump Trump and All Racist Politicians
Since early 2016, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) has been at the forefront of protests to stop Trump. Chapters and affiliates led protests from coast to coast, even helping to completely shut down his speaking event in Chicago. We also attended and spoke at the March on the Republican National Convention this summer in Cleveland, Ohio. From the beginning, SDS has said that Trump’s agenda of bigotry, misogyny, anti-immigrant, and Islamophobic attacks should not go unopposed.
Upon his election win, Clinton officially remarked that “We owe Trump an open mind”. Clinton, the rich politicians, and corporate media pundits who told us that Trump could be defeated at the ballot box have offered no real solutions for how to stop his policy measures.
We call upon students and all people to channel their anger into organizing, so we can defend our communities, and build sustainable movements independent of the political establishment that provides both Trump and Hillary as viable candidates.
On Inauguration Day, Jan 20th, SDS will hold a national student walkout, in alliance with many other student groups. We will disrupt operations on campuses everywhere.
We demand free tuition and equal access to education for Black, Chicano, Latino and specifically undocumented students. We demand sanctuary campuses everywhere, the preservation of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and an end to deportations.
Sanctuary for All!
Legalization For All!
Education for All!
