‘Civil Disobedience’, a group of protesters, are planning a march from Charlottesville, Virginia to Washington, D.C. to not only “fight” white supremacy but to also demand that President Donald 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 occupy it with non-violent demonstrations.
“We are marching from Charlottesville to Washington DC to demonstrate our commitment to confronting white supremacy wherever it is found. It’s clear that we can no longer wait for Donald Trump or any elected official to face reality and lead. We are coming together to reckon with America’s long history of white supremacy, so that we can begin to heal the wounds of our nation.”
“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.
Early this month rallies erupted in Charlottesville which resulted in at least 1 death and many injured, a clash between the alt-left and the alt-right. Despite disavowing white supremacists this time and many more times over the course of this life, President Trump was criticized by the left for it saying that it wasn’t “Enough”.
“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 march organizers wrote.
“This is the time for us to stand up for justice and equality. This is the time to confront white supremacy in our government and throughout our history. We demand that President Trump 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.”
