The DC Counter-Inaugural Welcoming Committee is organizing a Festival of Resistance on inauguration day, beginning at 12pm at Columbus Circle (in front of Union Station), and marching to McPherson Square.
This march will be fully permitted, and we are organizing marching bands, drummers, puppets, and vibrant displays of art and culture to show the diversity and power of resistance to Trump’s agenda.
We need you to come out and join us to show that we won’t back down. We’ll march in solidarity to protect our communities and reject racism, sexism, transphobia, Islamophobia, ableism, and all forms of hate and oppression. We will resist despair and fear with hope and resistance.
9:30AM Rally / 12:30PM March
Malcolm X Park (March will end at Mc Phearson Square Park and join with DisruptJ20)
Occupy Inauguration is a mass rally and protest taking place in Washington D.C. on
Inauguration Day, January 20th-21st, 2017. From day one of the new administration, our movements will need to unite and fight to advance the revolution.
We reject the domination of Wall Street and the billionaire class over our society, and oppose this rigged political and economic system. We stand against both the danger Trump represents and the corruption that backed Clinton. Neither party represents the interests of the 99%.
