Join with others from metropolitan Detroit as we join hundreds of thousands of people in Washington, D.C., on January 20th to protest the inauguration of Trump. Buses will be leaving from Detroit on Thursday evening and returning early Saturday morning. Participants will sleep on the bus to and from the demonstration.

The cost per seat is $85. We are doing our best to raise funds to offset the transportation costs for those that cannot afford the full cost of a seat.

If you are not able to go to Washington, D.C., please consider a donation to help send others go in your place.

Please call 313-680-5508 to reserve your seat.

Donations and ticket payments may be mailed to:

Moratorium NOW Coalition
5920 Second Ave.
Detroit, MI 48202

Donations and ticket payments may be made at:

Please note: Mailing in the donation or ticket payment is the most cost-effective method to use. Online transaction costs are high (you gotta love those banks), and you must pay for the transaction costs in addition to the bus ticket cost. The transaction cost for $85 bus ticket is $2.77 plus a “donation” to the YouCaring online payment service. So the minimum amount that you should submit online is $87.77, plus the YouCaring donation.

The call to action:

We Refuse! No Pasáran! Shut Down Trump’s Inauguration

On January 20th, hundreds of thousands of people will be storming the streets across the US against Trump’s accelerated assault on migrants, LGBTQ people, women, unions, people of color, and the entire working class.

Now more than ever, we need massive resistance in the streets to shut down Trump’s agenda of racism, sexism, migrant-bashing, cutbacks and war. With capitalism in decline, this agenda can be a recipe for fascism.

While both the Democrats and the Republicans are telling us now to accept the results of the election and look to “work with” President Trump, we completely refuse to accept this racist billionaire as the leader of this country. Trump has no solutions for the real issues faced by billions of workers across the world.

Capitalism, imperialism and the racist cops occupying our communities are the real problem. We, the millions of people ready to take direct action against the attacks of a Trump administration, are the solution.

Only mass action can push back this racist, sexist agenda. We are entering a new era of historic resistance, led by the struggles of Black Lives Matter and the water protectors at Standing Rock. We stand ready to put our bodies in front of deportation busses, bulldozers, tanks and other war machines. The working class and oppressed must join together in this historic moment with the full understanding that real power is in the streets, not in the White House and not the Pentagon.

Let’s show on January 20th that another world is possible. There is an alternative to racist terror, sexist oppression, homophobia, transphobia, migrant-bashing and bigotry. There is an alternative to capitalism and fascism.

On January 20th, let’s shut down DC with a historic mobilization of the people, united against Trump’s assault on the people.

Let’s fight for the revolution we really need. Now is our time to be in the streets.

We say NO to Trump, NO to Clinton, NO to capitalism, NO to war and NO to the two-party system that supports all of the above.

On Friday, January 20th, we will make sure our collective voice is heard throughout the halls of power and across the world. Join us!
