Trump Resistance Tour to Stop in St. Petersburg
The #Earth2Trump Roadshow of Resistance is stopping in 16 cities on its way to Washington, DC, to rally “defenders of civil rights and the environment to resist Trump’s dangerous agenda,” according to organizers.
ST. PETERSBURG – Earth2Trump, a cross-country roadshow that is trying to build a network of resistance to incoming President Donald Trump is scheduled to stop in St. Petersburg.
The tour is organized by the Center for Biological Diversity in coordination with Food and Water Watch, Sierra Club, Service Employees International Union, Suncoast Waterkeeper, Caloosa Riverkeeper, and other local groups.
“When we all speak together with a single voice of resistance, our power grows – and so do our chances of defeating the Trump administration,” said Blake Kopcho, an organizer with the center. “People in St. Petersburg will have a crucial role to play in building this movement and we’re excited to get there.”
The roadshow began in Oakland, CA, and Seattle, WA, on Monday (Jan. 2). The roadshow that began in Seattle will stop in such cities as Portland, OR; Denver, CO; and Chicago. The roadshow that began in Oakland will stop in such places as Los Angeles, Houston, and St. Augustine as well as St. Petersburg.
Organizers said the Earth2Trump roadshows will bring “speakers, musicians, outrage, fun and hope” to 16 cities as it progresses toward the Jan. 20 presidential inauguration. The shows will feature national and local speakers, musicians, and an opportunity to join a growing movement of resistance to all forms of oppression and all attacks on the environment. The St. Petersburg event will include music performances by Lyla June, Casey Neill, and Mountain Holler.
The goal, organizers said, is to “rally and empower defenders of civil rights and the environment to resist Trump’s dangerous agenda.” It will take the messages and support of thousands of people to protest at the presidential inauguration, they said.
Organizers said each show will give participants a chance to:
- Sign the national Pledge of Resistance to Trump’s agenda.
- Write a personalized #Earth2Trump message that will be carried to D.C. in a massive globe and delivered to Trump.
- Create a huge, viral social media #Earth2Trump messaging campaign.
- Connect with community members resisting oppression and find out how to join the million people who will protest in Washington, D.C. on Inauguration Day.
