JAN. 21, 2017 | QUEENS, NY – Filipino youth of Anakbayan New York together with community members and organizations participated in a march against President Donald Trump’s inauguration. This march was part of a series of protests happening all around the country and the world. Millions of people are taking to the streets to express their outrage of fascist, xenophobic, sexist, and Islamophobic president Trump.
“We are here today to protest President Donald Trump, whose administration is creating a climate of fear, but we, the oppressed communities, are coming together to resist. It is the time to organize and unite our communities to fight for our liberation.” Chrissi Fabro, Anakbayan New York said at the Queens Rally. Anakbayan USA said in a statement, “We must direct our anger towards organizing around the daily struggles of our communities as we build political power emanating from the grassroots. While the people of the U.S. have suffered a devastating blow this election, we must continue to struggle against U.S. imperialism and the fascist state now more than ever.”
J21 is not the end of the struggle against Trump and Fascism. Filipino Youth, ALL youth & Allies, please show your support by signing this unity statement against Trump.
