Wall at the Federal Building!

On Thursday, Feb 9th there was a new Wall in front of the Federal Building when 25 banners, along with smaller signs, stretched down Ala Moana Blvd.!   Each delivered a strong NO! against a single horror of the Trump Government.   Together they were a strong indictment of the fascist Trump agenda.

Response from passers-by was overwhelmingly enthusiastic.  Many honked their horns, signaled a shaka or thumbs up, or raised their fists.  Of course there were a few people who shouted "get over it" or gave a thumbs down, but they were in the great minority.  

Following the signholding there was a short rally where Liko Martin and Laulani Teale performed an original song in solidarity with the struggle against DAPL at Standing Rock.

Action thursday!

No! to the Trump/Pence Agenda
Signholding at the Federal Building
3:30-5:30pm, Thursday, February 9

The Saturday banner-making crew made 25 banners!   Now we need YOU!!   The large banners (painted on bedsheets) will be held at the Federal Building:  No War; No Racism; No Misogyny; No Climate Denial; No Bullying.....   Each message is short, clear and easy to read.     If you don't want to hold a banner, bring your own sign.

The Trump administration has made their fascist agenda clear.  Trump's executive orders and policy orders have attacked immigrants, civil liberties, the environment, other nations and more.  His tweets have attacked the Judiciary and anyone speaking out against him.  Tens of thousands have taken to the streets to show their outrage, but much more is needed.

Every person with a conscience and who wants a better world must find ways to speak out and act.  Join us this Thursday afternoon.
