Protest Monday

1a

Trump has been president for less than a week and is already on a dizzying dash to enact some of the most radically conservative initiatives this country has ever seen, including mass deportations and voter disenfranchisement, eviscerating reproductive rights, slashing labor protections, ending environmental and financial regulations, and dismantling our healthcare system. And this just the beginning.

But just as our radically conservative government is wasting no time rolling back decades of progressive gains, community organizations and other leftist political groups are gearing up to fight these measures at every turn. In New York City, these groups are focused on protecting the city’s liberal values, but also using this moment to create a larger movement for social justice that can long outlast the Trump administration and the repressive policies of his ruling party. Gothamist has taken a look at some great local organizations that are taking aggressive action to combat Trumpism.

From fighting racial intolerance in our neighborhoods to striving for socialism in our time, they’re are the forefront of the fight. Don’t mourn—organize.

    60 here today, temps slowly creeping back up with the longer days.

    Another weeks worth of bullshit out of rich boy, I’m keeping it at arms reach, to weak to do anything about it beyond signing petition after petition. There is after all, no cure for stupidity excepting maybe a guillotine to remove the affected portion.

    On a sticker up on campus:

    Make America THINK again!

      When it comes down to it the Muslim population is small in comparison to any other ethnicity there are 3.3 million Muslims living in the United States, about 1% of the total U.S. population. It is the dissenters of their regime they are after, whether they can gather them up is another story, unless foreign troops were used, hmmm. remember that friendly with Russia thing…

    Used the pickaxe to break away the ice on the top 3 steps in front. Those are the worst but there are 15 more to go…

    Arms noticeable already.

    Protesting. Must be nice to have one of those jobs. Maybe that is what I will do part-time after I retire.

    Just signed a petition to remove Steve Bannon.

    Yup, more chaos, more reason to worry: the firing of the Acting AG.

    Trumpy is tired, after 10 days as president. He’s going on vacation Friday.

    It’s snowing. Possible 4 inches tonight. That’s what happens when the temperature drops. Up until now, with our milder temps, nothing but rain. I complained about the rain, stupid me. Now I’m going to have to shovel tomorrow.

    I’ve no patience left for the people on the right. Imagine, putting down people who protest. Must be something worth protesting to get Americans out in droves for the Women’s March, and after the Muslim ban. Duh.
