Counter-Protest: Chicago Resists Islamophobia & Racism!
Joint statement of People United Against Oppression (A Muslim-led social justice organization) and ANSWER Chicago:
Spread the word now! On June 10, the largest anti-Muslim hate group in the United States, ACT for America, plans to march in Chicago and across the country. In the current climate of rising acts of hate and white supremacy, we must organize, resist and defend. We must come out in the largest numbers possible on June 10 in a powerful counter-protest. Racists and bigots will not be allowed to openly threaten oppressed communities in Chicago or anywhere!
Please also join and share the initial call for this counter-protest here:https://www.facebook.com/events/
On June 10, we will defend Muslims, immigrants, people of color, women, LGBTQ people and all those under increased attack. Trump’s america will be resisted.
The organizers of the June 10 anti-Muslim protest are vile racists, immigrant bashers and warmongers. They are staunch backers of the brutal and racist Israeli occupation of the Palestinian people. They will not be allowed to occupy one square inch of public space in Chicago without resistance.
Join and help deepen and strengthen the resistance on June 10. Make plans to join this counter-protest and spread the word now. Only the people can shut down racism and hate!
Bring your signs, banners and voices of resistance!
