The victory of Donald Trump is being met with shock, fear, and anger. Especially for immigrants, muslims, people of colour, women, and other oppressed people who Trump has singled out for attack, the question of how to defend themselves against the coming attacks is sharply posed.
A wave of demonstrations is being organized worldwide to fight back against Trump. These protests have the potential to galvanise millions into a massive grassroots movement.
Many feel there is a need to build a grassroots wall against threats to escalate mass deportations of immigrants and a clampdown on muslim communities, among other attacks.
The purpose of this Project is to pool resources and information that may be useful in the fight. Tough times are ahead but as Brian Eno says :
“The things that have happened have been so dramatic.. There’s been a revolution. We didn’t notice it because we didn’t start it. We always thought the revolution would be coming from people like us. Well, it didn’t. It came from other people.
We have a choice to not recognise it or to ride it and I think that riding it will be the exciting option. It’s like surfing, sometimes a big wave comes along, what are you going to do? Hide your head? No, you have to jump on it and ride with it."
Together the belief that hope and positivity will win out has to drive this movement.
