#MHK Resist began on 01.21.2017
The swearing in of Donald Trump to the United States presidency is indeed the formal culmination of many of the worst sentiments present in our country today: wholesale racism, GLBTQphobia, and misogyny, a kleptocratic power grab by political and financial elites, and the outright promise of ruin for many of the last safeguards present in a welfare state. Given this prospect for the next four years, it will be important for those of us on the left, progressives invested in building a better world, to be ready to fight.
The fight began on Inauguration Day with an "inaugurate the resistance" gathering attended by some 80 people. People gathered to join with one another and build relationships for the fight ahead of us. Music was provided by Steve Hinrichs and Chris Biggs; food and drink by Arrow Coffee; and people shared their thoughts with the group as a whole.
