Angelenos Plan To Protest Steve Bannon's Appointment Tonight At City Hall
Do you guys remember that crazy dystopian YA novel-turned-hit-movie where we elected a racist, misogynistic former reality TV star to the Oval Office, and then he appointed his beloved-by-White-Nationalists media mogul buddy as his chief strategist, and hate crimes surged across a post-lapsarian America?
Oh wait, that was real life! Wild, right? Like seriously, somebody better option this shit. Jennifer Lawrence is gonna be great as the scrappy white heroine who emerges to save us all.
In the meantime, Angelenos are planning to rally outside of City Hall this Wednesday night to protest President-elect Donald Trump's appointment of former Breitbart News chief Stephen Bannon to the Trump White House. Tonight's protest, which was announced on Facebook, is planned for 7 p.m. at City Hall. So far, almost 10,000 people have expressed plans to attend or interest in attending tonight's rally on the event's Facebook page, though actually numbers will likely not be quite so high. There were an estimated 8,000 attendees at Saturday's anti-Trump protest.
Here's how the event is described:
If you're disturbed by the president elect Donald Trump's decision to appoint a white ethno-nationalist, you're not alone and we reserve the right to gather in protest. We know that "alt-right" is a euphemism for white supremacy and we refuse to allow Bannon to continue to insulate Trump's echo chamber with hate rhetoric.
In order to ensure our momentum we must concentrate on making noise every day for the remainder of this lame duck, Trump's first 100 days, and beyond...
That means we remain diligent in holding our elected officials accountable.
Can't make it out? Here are some other ways to protest Bannon, from our friends at Romper.
