Their actions have the only goal to “disrupt” the Inauguration festivities. Anarchists encourage “civil resistance” and “civil disobedience.” The worst of them call for “blockades,” jumping barricades, throwing projectiles, and “citywide paralysis.”
Radical anarchists have an entire page ad in the New York Times.
“Stop the Trump/Pence regime before it starts! In the name of humanity we refuse to accept a fascist America!” reads the add. It’s followed by signatures from scholar Cornel West; author Alice Walker; Chase Iron Eyes of the Standing Rock Sioux; educator Bill Ayers; poet Saul Williams; CNN‘s Marc Lamont Hill; Carl Dix of the Communist Party USA; and many others.
The sick ad read that Donald Trump is “assembling a regime of grave danger” that is an “immoral peril to the future of humanity and the earth itself.”
“Millions must rise up in a resistance with a deep determination such that we create a political crisis that prevents the Trump/Pence fascist regime from consolidating its hold on the governance of society,” the add read.
DisruptJ20 has already announced massive demostrations. Legba Carrefour, a spokesman for the protest group, announced blockaded of major transportation routes in Washington D.C.
“We are planning to shut down the inauguration, that’s the short of it,” Carrefour said. “We’re pretty literal about that, we are trying to create citywide paralysis on a level that I don’t think has been seen in D.C. before. We’re trying to shut down pretty much every ingress into the city as well as every checkpoint around the actual inauguration parade route.”
What do you think about this? Will the police be able to handle the rioters?
