Utah activists fight back against Trump

first_imgSalt Lake City, Utah — A diverse group of Salt Lake City activists gathered at the City County building on March 18 to protest the presence of reactionary GOP front-runner Donald Trump, whose racism, sexism, xenophobia and exploitation of his employees have all been exposed.Organizations as diverse as Students for a Democratic Society, Utahns Against Police Brutality, Utah Anti-War Committee, Students for Justice in Palestine, Socialist Alternative, Teamsters Local 222 and Freedom Road Socialist Organization all spoke at the event. A common theme of the speeches was that the organizations of workers, students, the LGBTQ community, and oppressed nationalities ultimately are the ones with the power to stop Trump’s reactionary movement.Next came a march with chants of  “Whose streets, our streets!” and “El pueblo unido jamás será vencido.” More people joined, eventually reaching around 3,000. The march then began pushing up against the barriers and blocked the entrance, delaying the arrival of “The Donald” by about an hour.Protesters began chanting, “When immigrants are under attack, what do we do? Stand up, fight back!” Pigs fully clad in riot gear emerged and began pushing back against the crowd.Tensions have been rising between the community and the police, especially after the recent shooting of 17-year-old Abdi Mohammed. A pushing match ensued instigated by the cops and reactionaries leaving the event. “You guard fascists”! some demonstrators shouted and took turns hitting a Trump piñata.Because of Trump’s vicious attacks on immigrants, Utah’s Latino/a community has begun mobilizing in a way not seen since the huge marches in 2005 and 2006 calling for amnesty.After Trump left, cops tried to trap some demonstrators, but the people held together and got out. No arrests were made.More people are realizing that in capitalist society the cops aren’t neutral. They act as enforcers of an increasingly disintegrating social order. These are the “bodies of armed men” that Marx spoke about. This fact has been more painfully obvious to oppressed communities. How this plays out remains to be seen but we can say with certainty that the people will continue fighting. With humanity and the very planet at stake, how can we not?FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Several Iraqi sources have said his abductors may soon also release the British journalist they kidnapped at the same time.“We must remain on alert as long as the British reporter employed by CBS has not been released as well,” the press freedom organisation said. “We hope that intercession by members of Shiite cleric Moqtada Sadr’s movement will quickly bear fruit and the journalist will be safely reunited with his family.”Walid Al-Khuzaiy, a member of the Moqtada Sadr movement in Basra, told Reporters Without Borders that the British journalist, who has not been identified by CBS, would be released soon, as his Iraqi interpreter was yesterday. The movement, which is very influential in southern Iraq, is in contact with the kidnappers and has been trying to convince them to free both hostages.“We must protect journalists because they are key witnesses of what is happening in the country,” Khuzaiy told Reporters Without Borders. “The armed groups responsible for kidnapping journalists are mainly doing it for money, even if some of them try to justify their actions by giving political or religious reasons.”Last year, 25 journalists and media assistants were kidnapped in Iraq. A total of 208have been killed in connection with their work since the start of the US-led invasion in 2003.James Brandon, a reporter for the London-based Sunday Telegraph newspaper, was released in August 2004 as a result of the intervention of Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi, a close associate of Moqtada Sadr.In a separate development, the bullet-riddled body of freelance journalist Haidar Mijwit Hamdan, 27, was found in central Baghdad on 12 February.
