ACTIVISM Bernie Sanders Announces Nationwide Pre-Inauguration Protest
By Alexandra Rosenmann / AlterNet January 4, 2017
‘One week before Donald Trump takes office, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and his allies will be protesting the Republicans’ new agenda nationwide.
On January 15, for the first time in the modern history of the Democratic Party, Democrats are going to be organizing rallies all across this country in opposition to the Republican budget, which calls for throwing 30 million people off of healthcare, taking their insurance away… privatizing Medicare, making massive cuts in Medicaid, and at the same time giving tax breaks to the wealthy,” Sanders told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in a January 3 interview.
“We’re asking U.S. senators, members of the House, labor unions, environmental groups, senior groups, ordinary people to come together and tell the Republican Party that their priorities are absolutely backwards,” Sanders explained. ‘
Sanders will participate in a CNN town hall in anticipation of the event on January 9.
UPDATE FOR ABOVE LINKED THREAD:
The one-hour event will be held at George Washington University on January 9 at 9 p.m. ET and will air on CNN, CNN International and CNN en Español. It also will be live-steamed online and across mobile via CNNgo and CNN SiriusXM channel 116.
