Demonstrators to march on Republican headquarters

Minneapolis, MN – On the One-year anniversary of Donald Trump’s inauguration, protesters will gather at 1 p.m., Mayday Plaza (301 Cedar Avenue S.), to say “Trump out now! No wars! No Muslim ban!” The rally will be followed by a march to the Republican party headquarters.

Meredith Aby-Keirstead, of the Twin Cities-based Anti-War Committee, states, “It is important for us to protest on Jan. 20 because it marks the one-year anniversary of the start to Trump's presidency and it marks the year anniversary of people taking to the streets all over the country to denounce him as an illegitimate president. We have been protesting throughout this year to say no to his attacks on Muslims, on immigrants, and to his wars. This protest is a way to say that we are not accepting him or his policies of bigotry and war.”

Organized by the Anti-War Committee, the protest is endorsed by AFSCME Local 3800, 320 Members First, Filipinx for Immigrant rights and Racial justice MN, MN Immigrant Rights Action Committee, MN Peace Action Coalition, Twin Cities Coalition for Justice for Jamar, Veterans for Peace chapter 27, Welfare Rights Committee, Women Against Military Madness.
