Our Statement in the Wake of Trump

Trump won. If you’re on our page, you probably already know why that’s bad. People of color, Muslims, women, LGBTQ+ people, and the working class as a whole were all threatened as a part of Trump’s campaign for presidency, and even if he doesn’t make good on his promises, there’s no telling what his riled up fanbase of bigots will do in his name. We are at a terrifying point in history, and if history tells us anything, is that peace cannot be had while people like Trump are in positions of power. And those with power never give up that power willingly.

So The Black Cat House will still be here. We will continue to agitate and educate, and be a place of radical leftist thought and action. Because now more than ever, resistance is necessary. We have a few events in the coming months to help empower people to action. On December 10th from 1 to 3 PM, we’ll be holding a community discussion titled “Now What?: Organizing Resistance in the Age of Trump” and on January 16th, from 7 to 9 PM we’ll have a workshop on activist cybersecurity called “How to Protect Yourself Against Trump’s NSA.” We will try to share as many tools for activism as possible, but it’s up to you to take them up. In whatever way you’re able, disrupt fascism’s attempt to get a foothold.

This is no time for “Nebraska nice.” Take a stand, raise your voice, fight like hell!
