Three days before the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, communists in the United States will stage protests nationwide to demand the overthrow of the president.
The Revolutionary Communist Party USA has organized the November 4 protests through a group it founded after the 2016 election, called Refuse Fascism.
“The nightmare must end: The Trump/Pence regime must go. November 4, it begins. Get organized!” Refuse Fascism exhorts followers on its website. “Take to the streets and public squares in cities and towns across the country continuing day after day and night after night — not stopping — until our DEMAND is met!”
The protests are to take place in several cities including: Akron, Ohio; Atlanta; Austin, Texas; Boston; Chicago; Cincinnati and Cleveland, Ohio; Falmouth, Massachusetts; Honolulu; Indianapolis, Indiana; Los Angeles; Miami; Minneapolis; New York City; Philadelphia; Pittsfield, Portland and Salem, Massachusetts; San Francisco; Seattle; and Tuscon, Arizona.
“In less than a week, it begins; in 19 cities across the country, we will unite with courage and conviction, overcoming fear and uncertainty, to put a stop to the grave danger that the Trump/Pence regime poses to the world. Only the people acting together in non-violent mass protest, raising the demand that this regime must step down from power, can end this nightmare,” the group says.
Refuse Fascism claims to have a network that stretches across the country, and on November 1 took out a full-page ad in The New York Times, saying, in enormous black letters, “The Nightmare Must End: The Trump-Pence Regime Must Go! Nov. 4 It Begins.”
The ad calls for protests to continue “day and night” until Trump and Pence are “driven from power.”
But where does Refuse Fascism get all this money?
The Capital Research Center reports that it’s gotten $50,000 from left-wing groups funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundations. But it’s likely gotten much more. Full-page ads in The Times typically cost more than $100,000 for a one-time run.
November 4 will not be the first major event for Refuse Fascism. The group was responsible for organizing the riots that shut down Breitbart writer Milo Yiannopoulos’ speech at the University of California, Berkeley, in February.
But this time, it appears, law enforcement will be better prepared.
Refuse Fascism held a press conference in front of San Francisco’s city hall on October 31 to rail against the city for denying it a permit.
