Thousands of anti-Trump activists in New York City claim they will converge on Trump Tower this weekend to protest the billionaire’s so-called “fascist policies.”
A Facebook page set up by Cosmopolitan Anti-fascists has roughly 5,000 RSVPs for a protest at the 68-story building hovering over 5th Avenue. The event, which appears to be the Big Apple’s attempt to answer anti-Trump protests March 11 in Chicago, will be held Saturday at noon. Approximately 15,000 people said they are interested in attending.
“Trump’s policy threatens many of us in the Black, Latino, LGBT, Muslim and other communities. These policies and this type of speech has no place in this country, and certainly does not have a place in the city that Trump grew his empire in, which is considered such a melting pot and home for many of the same people Trump continues to wage war on,” the group’s invitation states. “Join us at Columbus Circle as we march to Trump Tower as we say no to hate, no to divisiveness, no to fascist policies and, most importantly, no to Donald J. Trump.”

Trump, the front-runner for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, canceled a campaign event at the University of Illinois-Chicago Pavilion last Friday over security concerns. Thousands of protesters tested the Chicago Police Department, Chicago Fire Department, the Secret Service and the FBI until the rally was scrapped.
MoveOn.org, which receives funds from billionaire George Soros, took partial credit for shutting down the rally. The group told supporters in an email, “This is what standing up to hate looks like – and it’s a huge win for student and community organizers who knew they were risking their own safety by taking action,” Mediaite reported March 11.
Four people were arrested and two Chicago cops suffered injuries trying to restore order.
As busy as March has been for anti-Trump activists, they show no signs of letting up in April. The hacking group Anonymous announced plans of waging a large-scale digital war on the Republican starting April 1.
“We need you to shut down his websites, research and expose what he doesn’t want the public to know,” an individual wearing a Guy Fawkes mask said in a YouTube video posted March 4. “We need you to dismantle his campaign and sabotage his brand. … This is a call to arms.”

Democracy Spring, which has been endorsed by Soros-funded groups MoveOn.org, the Institute for Policy Studies and Demos, has planned the “largest civil disobedience action of the century.” The group will head to the U.S. Capitol next month to protest “billionaires and big money interests” during a sit-in from April 11 through April 18.

“We will demand that Congress listen to the people and take immediate action to save our democracy. And we won’t leave until they do – or until they send thousands of us to jail,” the group’s website states, WND reported Thursday.
