Activists are planning a 10-day march starting from Charlottesville, Virginia to Washington, D.C. to fight white supremacy and demand that President Trump be removed from office.
“The March to Confront White Supremacy” will spend ten days starting on Monday, August 28 travelling to the nation’s capitol and then plan to occupy it with non-violent demonstrations.
“For years, white supremacist violence, rhetoric, and policies have escalated and intensified – exploding during Donald Trump’s run for president and reaching a boiling point in Charlottesville,” the website for the event reads.
This is listed under ‘March Logistics’:
- Housing: There will be basic housing provided for marchers, primarily in churches along the march route. If you have specific housing requirements, you may have to meet them at your own expense. We want to be as inclusive as possible, so please let us know about any reasonable accommodations we may be able to make when you register.
- Food: There will be basic meals, water, and snacks provided for marchers. We plan to accommodate a range of dietary restrictions (vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free) but cannot assure that we will meet your personal standards or preferences. Consider bringing any special non-perishable items for yourself.
- Luggage: Your bags and luggage will be transported for you from the start point to the end point for each day of the march. If you want to carry anything with you, considering bringing a day pack or small bag.
Any questions about who is funding this – George Soros.
The Hill reports:
“This is the time to confront white supremacy in our government and throughout our history. We demand that President Trump to be removed from office for allying himself with this ideology of hate and we demand an agenda that repairs the damage it’s done to our country and its people,” the website for the march reads.
“This will be a sustained civil disobedience campaign, so bring what you need to stay,” they added.
“The March to Confront White Supremacy,” is being planned by a number of activist groups such as the Women’s March, Working Families Party, the Action Group Network, United We Dream, Color of Change, and others.
Violence erupted in Charlottesville earlier this month at a protest when a man with alleged ties to white nationalists killed one person and injured dozens more by ramming his car into a crowd of counterprotesters. Tensions were further inflamed when Trump responded to the violence by blaming “many sides” for the violence.
The attack spurred demonstrations against white supremacy around the country, including Durham, North Carolina, where protesters surrounded and toppled a Confederate statue in the days after the violence. Other cities around the country have chosen to take down or cover Confederate monuments in the wake of the Charlottesville attack.
Participants will walk as much as 17 miles per day and sleep in churches along the route. The march is set to pass through Ruckersville, Culpeper, Manassas, Fairfax and Falls Church, an online timeline said.
President Trump has repeatedly denounced the violence that broke out in Charlottesville and has condemned the actions from the white supremacists and the KKK. He also blamed the Black Lives Matter and the Antifa thugs who showed up wearing helmets and carrying clubs – he was right to condemn them all.
President Donald Trump was never accused of being a racist until he began running for office, and the Left and mainstream media have been using it as a tool to discredit him.
Here is 30 years of the president denouncing racism and hate groups that the mainstream media does not want you to see.
