More than 70,000 anti-Trump activists have signed a ‘liberation’ pledge promoting a range of far-left demands.
The “Pledge of Liberation” includes demands for open border immigration policies, defunding of the U.S. military, reparations for African-Americans, full abortion rights and an end to “gender norms, expectations, stereotypes.” Organised by the Women’s March organisation, thousands of activists have signed the pledge, with pro-abortion group NARAL and CNN commentator Sally Kohn promoting it on Twitter.
The section on immigration reads, “We believe migration is a human right and that no human being is illegal. We demand the establishment of sanctuary cities that are sanctuaries for all—including Black, Latin, Asian, queer, trans, and disabled people who are disproportionately targeted by local law enforcement—and an end to the targeting and deportation of undocumented people and families. We demand an opening of our borders and resources to migrants and refugees regardless of nationality, religion, or background.”
Pledge signatories also “demand the passage of federal anti-workplace discrimination legislation that specifically protects the rights and identities of LGBTQIA+ people,” as well as “open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion and birth control for all people, regardless of income, location or education.”
The Daily Caller reports:
Women’s March, which recently joined forces with left-wing activist group Indivisible, is partnering up with the ACLU, United We Dream, Hollaback!, The Gathering for Justice and the National Lawyers Guild to hold 60 demonstrations across the country on Monday in conjunction with the pledge, according to the group’s website.
The organization, whose leaders include former Clinton staffers, has continued its anti-Trump activism since organizing a march in Washington, D.C. the day after President Trump’s inauguration. Last month Women’s March organized a similar “A Day Without A Woman” protest and march in the nation’s capital.
Women’s March emailed supporters on Thursday and again on Monday, encouraging them to sign the pledge and attend one of Monday’s demonstrations.
The pledge contains “the principles in which our resistance movement is rooted,” says the Women’s March organisation.
