Peaceful Transition? Nation Braces for Disruptions, Blockades, Property Damage
Large groups of left-wing protesters will try to sabotage Donald Trump’s inauguration by creating blockades and destroying public property, according to recent reports.
On the day of the inauguration, which will take place Friday, 20th January, protesters are planning to create a series of human blockades across Washington D.C., where participants will protest against a variety of Trump’s proposed policies, from immigration reform to climate change.
The principal organiser of the protests is a group known as #DisruptJ20, who are already advertising for people to join them in a “bold mobilization against the inauguration of Donald Trump.”
“We call on all people of good conscience to join in disrupting the ceremonies. If Trump is to be inaugurated at all, let it happen behind closed doors, showing the true face of the security state Trump will preside over. It must be made clear to the whole world that the vast majority of people in the United States do not support his presidency or consent to his rule,” the group states on the website.
