Protest Trump's 1st visit to NYC with Rise and Resist!

  • W 44th St and 12th Ave W 44th St and 12th Ave New York, NY

Donald Trump is coming to New York City for the first time since his inauguration. Join Rise and Resist this Thursday, May 4th, to show the so-called-president how unpopular and unwelcome he is in his hometown. We condemn Trump and his regime of hatred and discrimination.#NoTrumpNYC

Join us: 3pm at West 44th Street and 12th Avenue (West Side Highway), on the East side of the street, opposite the Intrepid. Join us!

TIMING:
3pm: Gather at West 44th Street and West Side Highway. We're bringing 100 signs and Lady Liberty crowns and torches: please feel free to bring your own signs, costumes, noisemakers, food, water.

3-7pm: Rally (with music and song, bring noisemakers!)

7pm: March to Trump Tower (if he stays overnight in NYC and this is still unclear)

8pm through the night: Rally at Trump Tower (as above)

As his movements are being kept secret we wont know the exact timings until the last minute. We will send out a text alert as soon as his movements are confirmed on the day. Please sign up here if you would like to receive a text alert for this action: http://bit.ly/trumpvisit

At the moment we anticipate his arrival at the Intrepid some time after 3pm. We plan to stay until the private reception and dinner which begin at 6.30pm. 

UPDATE: News reports say that he will spend Thursday night in NYC. Yikes! At 7pm we'll probably march from the Intrepid to Trump Tower. It's a 35minute walk. 

You're welcome to join us anytime and stay for as long as you're able. 

We'll have marshalls and this will be a peaceful rally.

NOTE TO FRIENDS IN NEW JERSEY: He will stay at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey Friday through Sunday. We're organzing other actions in New Jersey, info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/255830191492226/?ti=icl

TRANSPORTATION:
A/C/E to 42nd St Port Authority; or 7 to 34th St - Hudson Yard stop on the subway. M42 bus on 42nd St. Accessible for the mobility impaired.

NEW YORK VALUES:
On January 28th, thousands of New Yorkers gathered at JFK and courthouses to stand in solidarity to say that people of all backgrounds are welcome in our city. On May 4th we come together to say that Trump is not. On Donald Trump’s first visit back to the city since becoming president, Rise and Resist will demonstrate what real New York values look like.
