In my lifetime I have never seen this country so visibly divided and in such a state of chaos. A week doesn’t go by without American’s protesting in street and our President could care less. Maybe a ‘Not My President’s Day’ protest across the country on Monday will wake him up, but I am not holding out hope for that. NBC news reports,
“Thousands of people nationwide have vowed to spend their Presidents Day Weekend protesting President Donald Trump and his policies at “Not My President’s Day” rallies scheduled to take place in at least 25 cities across the country.
“Not My President’s Day — Rally,” Los Angeles
This Los Angeles’ “Not My President’s Day” rally was the first of its kind to pop up on Facebook, inspiring many of the other “Not My President’s Day” rallies that are taking place across the country this weekend. The purpose of the Monday rally is to show that President Trump “has attacked every value Californians embody,” according to its Facebook page, where 3,500 have signed up to attend.
“Not My President’s Day — Rally (NYC)” New York
More than 12,000 New Yorkers are said to be attending the peaceful rally while 47,000 said they were interested in going on Facebook. Kashish Samsi, “Stronger Together” singer; disability activists Elizabeth Melas and Anastasia Somoza; and Youngsters Against Trump are some of the scheduled speakers. Arts for Art and The Resistance Band will be performing, according to Nova Calise, the rally organizer.
“Not My President’s Day Rally (Washington DC),” Washington, D.C.
Members of the D.C. community plan to come together Monday to “stand in support of our brothers and sisters of different nationalities, backgrounds, races, religions, ability and sexual identity,” to show that “Donald Trump’s hate does not have a mandate anywhere, especially not in our District.” Speakers will be announced on the rally’s Facebook page and Twitter over the weekend, Meghan Loisann Schneider, one of the coordinators, said.
“Not My President’s Day — Rally (Chicago),” Chicago
Unlike the several of the rallies, one planned for Chicago on Monday claims not to have a specific message, but a pointed purpose: unity.
Focusing on just one issue, like immigration, would serve the administration’s purpose and further divide the country, Laura Hartman, Chicago rally coordinator, explained.
“We want to fight the entirety of the administration,” she said.”
