MORE MILITANT KANSAS CITY PROTESTERS NOW DEMAND LOCAL POLITICOS STAND UP TO PREZ TRUMP!!!

Here is their statement via e-mail blast currently circulating . . .
ACTION THIS FRIDAY: KC Rejects White Supremacy
This past week, we saw Donald Trump issue a flurry of Executive Orders, a number of which explicitly target Muslims, immigrants, and refugees. Elected officials in Kansas City now have a choice: stand up and oppose these overtly racist orders, or acquiesce to the death culture of white supremacy.
KS/MO DREAM Alliance, One Struggle KC, the Muslim Civic Initiative, KC QOC, and SURJ-KC are calling on all elected officials representing all levels of government in Kansas City to reject Trump’s racist rhetoric and enact policies that protect ALL of our people. We will rally at 4:30 PM on Friday at Oppenstein Brother’s Memorial Park (12th and Walnut) to demand #NoBanNoWall, to declare our undocumented brothers and sisters are #HereToStay, and to show our resistance to Donald Trump's agenda of white supremacy.
We hope you can show up with us.
We will demand that our electeds use the entire reach of their power to prohibit their cities' police departments from complying with federal immigration authorities. We will demand public condemnations of Trump's orders. Finally, we will demand that our electeds publicly issue plans on how they will decrease police and state violence in communities of color generally. No public dollars, no public time should be spent enforcing the ban.
Now is the time to decide what history will say about us. We either condemn and fight white supremacy, or we accept and normalize a politics of hate. To those we have elected to represent us in Kansas City: Which side are you on?
