Just a few things to do today & this weekend…
ο Unfollow all social media Donald Trump will be using. You won’t miss anything. The media will tell us whenever he whines on Twitter.
ο If you’re home today, find something to do while the Inauguration is going on. Don’t watch it. Read a book. Rage clean.Plan your garden. Have a friend over for coffee. Go for a walk. Anything. This doesn’t have as much to do with “making the ratings low”. It’s about not participating in Trump’s presidency from the very start.
ο Pay attention to the news sources covering the transition. If they’re embracing this presidency and normalizing Trump, that’s not the news source for us.
ο If you haven’t already been thinking about it, this is a good weekend to really put some thought into you action plan for resistance. How much time per week can you commit to phone calling representatives and challenging every single thing this administration does? If you feel overwhelmed by the amount of issues at hand, choose just one or a few that are the most important to you to focus your efforts on.
Are there accessible ways to help others in your community?Are you willing to put your body on the line during non-violent actions? Are you willing to be arrested? Thin
ο Plan to be a nuisance. Be ungovernable. Be tedious and persistent. Disrupt not only government but disrupt businesses tied to Trump or that you know support Trump. If you can, DISRUPT J20 . Withhold your labor.
ο If you’re attending a protest or march today or this weekend, be prepared. Know your rights. Set up a buddy system. Document police abuses. Help others. Be aware of everything going on around you. Read this guide for more tips.
