Organizers will announce plans April 4

Milwaukee, WI – An April 4 press conference, to take place at Milwaukee’s City Hall, will announce a major protest at the upcoming Democratic National Convention.

“The Coalition to March on the DNC is excited to announce a rally and march on the opening day of the Democratic National Convention, Monday, July 13 at 12 p.m. within sight and sound of the arena,” said Chris Antimo Perez, spokesperson for the Coalition to March on the Democratic National Convention. “All eyes will be on Milwaukee as the DNC takes place at the Fiserv Forum from July 13-16th, 2020. We call on all progressive, left, democratic and socialist organizations to join us in unity.”

Organizers of the protest have applied for a permit for a rally at Red Arrow Park (Dontre Park) and a march to the Fiserv Forum.

The organizers of this coalition have led mass marches that drew thousands to the 2008 Republican National Convention in Saint Paul, Minnesota; the 2012 RNC in Tampa, Florida, and the 2016 RNC in Cleveland, Ohio.

“The Coalition to March on the DNC will be a broad, national coalition of left and progressive forces, working with local Milwaukee groups and activists,” said Perez. He stated they are rallying behind demands including but not limited to: End U.S. Wars and Interventions; Money for Human Needs, Not War; Community Control of the Police; Stop Police Terror; Legalization for All; No More Deportations; Tax the Rich; Medicare for All; Climate Action Now; Fight to Expand Union and Worker Rights, and Demand Peace, Justice and Equality!
