Don't watch the State of the Union alone, join us in responding together in cities across the country.  
 
In New York City: MEET at 8 pm @ Columbus Circle and March to Trump Tower (5th Ave & 57th Street). People across the country will tune in to Trump's State of the Union where he will stand at a podium with the backdrop of two years in power, and threaten a "state of emergency" power grab, re-making society in a fascist direction.
 
When Trump spews lies about the terror inflicted by immigrants, we will be sharing the stories and screams of the thousands of families that have been ripped apart and remain separated to this day. The Trump-Pence regime has done this to such a great extent and with such disdain for their humanity that reuniting the families may not be “within the realm of the possible” according to the administration itself.
 
When Trump rails on about respecting borders and national sovereignty, we will call out the fascist Trump-Pence regime that has pulled the trigger on a coup in Venezuela which the U.S. has been working on for decades. They have appointed Elliot Abrams to "restore democracy," a man pardoned for his involvement with gruesome death squads in Central America in the 1980’s, to install a subservient government.
 
When Trump speaks about national security or ending foreign wars, we will show how Trump has begun the production of nuclear weapons designed to be more readily usable - to destroy cities and incinerate millions while remaining under the threshold of all-out nuclear Armageddon. Simultaneously he has directed his regime to pull out of a key nuclear arms treaty with Russia, enabling a renewed nuclear arms race on an unprecedented scale.
 
You can count on the Democrats to normalize a fascist regime, to continue to offer to meet fascism half way and work with Trump when they can. You can count on them to insist they have better, more effective ways to terrorize and round up immigrants. You can count on them to cheer when Trump invokes the police and armed forces. And you can count on them to frame their differences with Trump in terms of what's best for America when Trump and Pence pose an existential threat to humanity. 
 
The question is - what can the people of the world count on us for?
