The Same People Who Organized Trump Inauguration Riots Are Helping With The Climate March

The same agitators behind the riots on the day of President Trump's inauguration are helping to organize the upcoming People's Climate March in Washington D.C. 

Resist This, whose motto was "we disrupt" when dozens of its members were arrested for rioting in January on the streets of Washington D.C., is calling for volunteers.

"April 29th marks the 100th day of the Trump administration, which makes it an extremely important moment to send the message that our resistance to his disastrous policies isn’t going anywhere. From Day 1 we have seen what people power can achieve: Trumpcare? Withdrawn. Muslim ban? Blocked. Now Trump’s entire fossil fuel agenda is next, and the People's Climate March is a crucial turning point in that fight," an email sent out by the group Friday states. 

"100,000 people have already signed up to march in DC. 250 sister marches are being planned across the country. Students, workers, faith communities, Indigenous nations, and environmental groups are all joining together to make this day historic – there’s even a delegation of fisherman traveling to DC by boat," the email continues. "The People's Climate March is going to be a pivotal moment in the resistance to Trump's climate-denying agenda — that’s why we need everyone to get involved right now to help make it massive." 

They are also organizing their comrades for May Day disruptions. The Climate March will take place on April 29.
