We have just announced an exciting opportunity to demonstrate our disapproval of President Trump and his Administration. We are teaming up with Be Better Belmont and many other local organizations to speak out against Trump’s lies and protest Belmont’s planning of the the entire event, as well as their connection to the private prison industrial complex, CoreCivic.
We will meet at the intersection of Magnolia and Wedgwood at 4:30 PM on Thursday and occupy the spaces that are highlighted:
Face masks (covering your nose and mouth) are mandatory. There will be extra masks and hand sanitizer on the tables.
Our Revolution has shirts and posters available. If you would like some, please fill out the request form here.
Some notes on safety:
Be Better Belmont are very grateful to have Neon Guard Nashville providing community safety support for the demonstration. Neon Guard “promotes and facilitates the safety of marginalized communities during direct actions using embodied resistance and nonviolent de-escalation tactics.” They will be present throughout the event & identifiable by their neon vests. Please follow their lead to keep all members of our community safe; this includes crossing safely at crosswalks, wearing appropriately fitting masks (more than just a bandana or gaiter, please), and not engaging directly with counter-protesters.
