Across the United States and internationally, tens of thousands of people are participating in protests to denounce the brutal and illegal anti-immigrant policies imposed over the weekend by the Trump administration. They are motivated by genuine outrage and sympathy for the men, women and children caught up in Washington’s dragnet.
There is, however, a vast gulf separating these genuinely humane and democratic sentiments animating the protests and the politically circumscribed and thoroughly reactionary posture adopted by the Democratic Party in relation to the Trump administration.
The International Youth and Students for Social Equality is organizing rallies in New York, San Diego, Chicago, Detroit, New Orleans and other cities to give expression to mass opposition and mobilize workers and youth on a politically independent basis.
Upcoming rally details:
New Orleans, Louisiana
Friday, February 10, Noon
Tulane University, Academic Quad
Meeting to follow:
February 10, 7:00 pm
Tulane University, LBC Room 201
Speaker: WSWS Writer Tom Hall
Demonstrations have been held in San Diego and New York. To organize a meeting or demonstration at your school or in your neighborhood, contact the SEP.
