Action is being called by Refuse Fascism – Bay Area
On Monday, Republican senators will ram through a final vote to confirm right-wing judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat on the Supreme Court.
We must vote in big numbers. But, the reality is that voting alone will not stop Trump. The illegitimate rushed confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett, a theocratic fascist, to the Supreme Court is for the immediate purpose of throwing the election to Trump should he lose.
We must overwhelm this fascist regime and movement with our mass non-violent protest. If we unite and rise like we did in the spring for Black lives, coming back day after day – united by the demand Trump/Pence OutNow! and refusing to stop till they’re gone – we can change the political situation. Our numbers, our diversity, and our heart for humanity can sustain us through whatever the Trump/Pence regime tries to do to remain in power.

Info from MoveOn:
Here are five things we learned from the hearings—and from Barrett’s own published commentary
1. She’d fulfill Trump’s wish to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
2. She’d be the death knell for the rights guaranteed under Roe v. Wade.
3. She’d seek to end marriage equality.
4. She’d be a decisive vote against voting rights.
5. Her pro-corporate history would give huge corporations even more power and individuals even less when it comes to climate, privacy, and consumer rights.
Barrett nomination clears Senate hurdle, putting her on course to confirmation to Supreme Court
