Saturday Jan 25, 11:30 am
Rally at Millenium Park

March to TRUMP TOWER 

and join the 

Global Day of Protest
No War on Iran!

We'll rally at 11:30 am at Millennium Park (Randolph & Michigan) and march to Trump Tower to join the "NO War on Iran" protest, one of many around the country. Trump committed an act of war by ordering the assassination of a leading member of a foreign government the US is not at war with, and now he brags that he didn't need any justification. The people of Iran and Iraq are already paying a heavy price for this "America First" regime. In the midst of an impeachment trial, the situation is extremely volatile.



Come to the Open #OutNOW Organizing Meeting
Sunday Janurary 26, 2pm-5pm
About Face Offices,
5252 N Broadway St, Chicago

Everyone who wants to see Trump/Pence #OUTNOW is welcome to join us at this open meeting. Bring your thinking & creativity as we work together on how to get the millions who oppose the Trump/Pence Regime into the streets to drive it out.

We need to stay in the streets, for this and millions of other reasons. Join us in inviting everyone who is agonizing over the prospect of full-out war to take up the only strategy to stop them - sustained, non-violent, growing protest with ONE non-negotiable demand: Trump/Pence #OUTNOW!


EVERY DAY THAT THE TRUMP/PENCE REGIME REMAINS IN POWER THREATENS THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY AND THE PLANET.

Everyone with a conscience must face this hard truth. But that alone is not enough—we must now ACT ON IT.

There is a way to remove this whole regime—the #OUTNOW! Movement of sustained, nonviolent protest that doesn’t stop until the regime has been removed from power.

Emergency Protest: 

U.S. Out of Iraq! 

No War on Iran!

Hosted by Answer Chicago and 5 others

Saturday 1/4 12noon to 2pm
Wacker and Wabash
Chicago, Illinois
Donald Trump has ordered hundreds and perhaps thousands of more U.S. troops to the Middle East in response to the massive protests in Iraq following the latest U.S. aerial assault that killed scores of Iraqis. The protesters siege of the U.S. Embassy has ended as of now but the recent U.S. bombings of Iraq reveal the criminal, imperial character of the U.S. occupation of Iraq. More than a million Iraqis have died during the past 28 years as a consequence of U.S. occupation, bombings, and sanctions. Tens of thousands of U.S. troops have either been killed or suffered life-changing wounds. The U.S. government has spent more than $3 trillion dollars in the on-going occupation and bombing of this oil-rich country.

In response we are calling on all people of conscience to come out to Trump Tower this Saturday at 12 noon to demand U.S. troops out of Iraq. This is part of a national coordinated day of action.

Trump has been impeached! A cause for celebration and increased determination. Now let’s go all the way to drive Trump and the whole fascist regime from power. [see upcoming events below]

Join the #OUTNOW! Movement
The Trump/Pence Regime 
Must Go NOW!

EVERY DAY THAT THE TRUMP/PENCE REGIME REMAINS IN POWER THREATENS THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY AND THE PLANET.
Everyone with a conscience must face this hard truth.
But that alone is not enough—we must now ACT ON IT.

There is a way to remove this whole regime—the #OUTNOW
Movement of sustained, non-violent protest that doesn’t stop
until the regime has been removed from power
Donald Trump has been impeached in the House of Representatives, indicted on two charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. For all of us who have looked on in horror as this regime’s crimes escalate – children in cages, environmental protections shredded, violence threatened against political opponents, and more – it is a moment of celebration that at last this fascist criminal is getting a first taste of justice.
This is a real advance. With impeachment, we enter 2020, the fourth year of this hateful presidency, on new terrain. The terms have now changed, in a way that greatly heightens the potential for driving out the whole fascist Trump/Pence regime. (continued below)
Come to a mass organizing meetings to dig into and plan how to develop the week after week movement of sustained mass protests involving a broad diversity of people demanding Trump/Pence Out NOW!
Saturday, January 4 - 2:00 pm
Mass Organizing Meeting
About Face Theatre offices 
5252 N. Broadway Chicago
With a new surge of hope and energy, now is the time to seize the moment and join together, recognizing that only a determined struggle of thousands and then millions taking to the streets in continuing protests can create a crisis from below that could force this whole regime from power.
A great struggle still lies ahead. The stakes have been raised.
The cracks and strains in our political class are more visible than ever. A Republican Party now well-hardened around its fascist core is in full standoff with a Democratic Party that felt compelled to take the momentous step of impeaching a President for only the third time in U.S. history. An impeachment trial is expected in the Senate in January to determine whether or not Trump will be removed from power. But Trump and with the fascist Republicans in lockstep are intensifying their threats and vowing not to convict him or have an impartial trial.
The danger that impeachment without removal will leave intact a fascist regime – now full of vengeance and more emboldened to drive forward with its program – has never been higher. And in the unlikely scenario that the Senate votes to convict Trump and remove him from office, the Christian fascist wing of the regime, led by Mike Pence, is poised to take over and hammer in their own theocratic vision of society, backed by the Bible taken literally.
In January, as the impeachment of Trump roils in the U.S. Senate, a mass movement of the people demanding Trump/Pence #OutNow must grow… each week making advances and becoming a magnetic force of all who feel that life here and around the world will be unbearable under the fascism the Trump/Pence regime is rapidly imposing. We must follow the examples of millions all over the world carrying out mass struggle to demand regime change because they feel they cannot go on another day with what their rulers are doing.
Don’t we face a situation that demands this same level of determination? Can anyone dispute that the Trump/Pence regime poses a catastrophic danger to humanity?
Concentration camps on the border… environmental devastation accelerated… war, even nuclear war, casually threatened… white supremacist rule… fascist mobs and racist mass murderers… truth and science erased… the right to abortion near gone… the rule of law and democratic and civil rights stripped away… THIS IS FASCISM UNFOLDING AND IN POWER.
Our power is the power of the people acting with determination – not to protest one day and go home, but flood the streets, with people of many different points of view acting together, in sustained non-violent protest – starting in our hundreds, soon becoming thousands, and ultimately millions – refusing to stop until the whole Trump/ Pence regime has been removed from power.
Together, we must make January a month of struggle, building a broad based #OUTNOW! Movement to advance this great cause.
Saturday January 4 or Sunday January 5 Come to mass organizing meetings around the country to discuss, brainstorm and plan how to develop the week after week movement of sustained mass protest. Come on behalf of your schools, congregations, social justice and student groups, neighborhood associations, or as unaffiliated individuals who want to take on the greatest challenge facing humanity today. How can we, together, win growing numbers of people to take up this demand and join us in the streets to make it real?
