Here’s something I don’t normally say on this blog: Don’t shop with me on Monday, December 12. Don’t shop anywhere that day.
Instead, join the Women and Allies Nationwide Protest. If you can, take off from work — feel free to use heel spurs as your excuse — and join a march in your city to let Donald Trump and his fascist handlers/flunkies know that nothing they do is okay with you. Here is the list of the events planned (so far) in various cities.
For New Yorkers like me, here is your info:
If you can’t take the day off, at least stop by on your lunch hour to demand that, among other things:
- Donald Trump cut ties with the racist Steve Bannon.
- The right-wing end its crusade against Planned Parenthood and Roe v. Wade.
- The government take a firm stance against sexual assault and rape, as well as provide funding for the processing of rape-kit backlogs.
March to show that you will not tolerate being paid less or otherwise discriminated against because of gender identity or sexual orientation. March to show that you will not accept hatred.
Because all these kleptocrats care about is money, I’m asking you to spend no money at all that day. Seriously, bring your lunch to work. Get your gas tank filled the day before. Spend nothing! Show them what the economy is like when you’re not contributing to it. Also, #grabyourwallet and boycott these companies that carry Trump products — not just one day, but every day.
See you in Columbus Circle!
