The People:1 Trump:1

The initial movement to defend immigrants and refugees from Trumps immigration ban executive order was hugely successful in mobilizing 10’s of thousands of people to occupy airports and roadways across the country.  Rulings from Federal Courts injuncting the administration from enforcing the order rapidly followed. 

The response from the Trump administration was to fire the acting Attorney General and to refuse to obey the  Circuit Court injunction! Who’s outside the law now?
Now is not the time to take the movement off the streets and ‘let the system work’!  

We need more than pretty speeches from Democratic politicians who vote to confirm Trumps cabinet picks when the protest  is over. 

We need to keep up the pressure and be prepared to escalate with mass nonviolent civil disobedience  to shut down business as usual! 

We new to move beyond ‘protest’ and work to build real political power independent of the corporate political parties. We need a clear strategy to take on Trumpism and win. We need a Party of the 99%!

The People:1  Trump:0

#NoBanNoWall #PHL

Trump has just experienced his first defeat!

Over the weekend  thousands of working and middle class people piled into airports across the country shouting “Immigrants are welcome here!”

The ACLU and scores of middle class lawyers, and Democratic Party politicians joined this movement and the judiciary have so far sided with it. Even leading Republicans have condemned Trump’s move.

We need to build principled tactical and strategic unity with all forces resisting Trump: 

  • Black Lives Matter!
  • No Deportations!
  • #NoDapl – Green Jobs Now!
  • Defend LGBTQ People, Women, and Workers Rights!
  • 15 And A Union – 15 Now!
  • Defend And Extend Medicare To All!

With 10’s of 1000’s of people moving into struggle and fighting back against this administration’s right wing agenda we can defeat Trump. 

 If you want to join an organization that is engaged in this fight from the ground up that also has a clear analysis of the Democratic Party, independent movement building, and the need to build a new party of the 99% -that takes no corporate money – that will fight for us not the billionaires then check us out: Socialist Alternative 

On January 29th thousands of Philadelphians descended on PHL Intl Airport to say “Let Them In”!!!  Socialist Alternative was there. 

#ResistTrump! #ResistTheRight!

Trump supporters are threatening violence against those exercising their rights to free speech!

Since Trumps election last week there has been an increase in racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, and anti-muslim violence. There have been several assaults in the Philly area and other incidents of physical and verbal threats and vandalism. They are trying to scare us off the streets and silence our opposition to his racist right wing agenda!

Our strength is on our numbers! We are here to say that we will not stand idle! We will not run and hide! We will continue to assemble and march against the fear and hate. We need to keep building our mass mobilizations to build organized resistance to the racist right!

Whose streets! Our streets! Whose City! Our City! Whose Country! Our Country!

Trump Lies! Clinton Cheats! Build The Movement Hit The Streets!

Thousands of us took to the streets last night to put Trump on notice that we are not going anywhere. We will defend our communities and we will keep organizing our political revolution against the billionaire class! 

Socialist Alternative put out the call but we were joined by friends and comrades from Reclaim Philly, BLM, DNC Action, Philly.FYI and many others. 
We have work to do. We need to keep building our movements to #ResistTrump, but we also need to abandon the failed strategy of relying on the Democratic Party and start building a new party of the 99% that takes no corporate $ and fights unapologetically for the working class. No time like the present.


From the beginning, this was a dangerous game the Democratic leadership played. In an election with massive anger against the establishment, they backed to the hilt a candidate who was the very epitome of the status quo. Clinton and the DNC have no one to blame but themselves. But now it’s in our hands: we will build a grassroots wall against Trump’s bigoted agenda, and a new party of the 99%.
