A protest group will hold rallies across the country to demand an end to the “fascist coup” after the attack on the U Capitol of Donald Trump supporters

The RefuseFacism group has “held rallies against the Trump administration” every day until Biden’s election was confirmed “

Now, after the violent uprising by right-wing extremists and conspiracy theorists that broke out on Wednesday, the group is promoting rallies in cities like Atlanta, New York, Houston and Los Angeles as “time to stand up” against the “fascist coup”

Promoting one of the protests, Refuse Fascism tweeted: “In #Chicago we’ll meet on Thursday at 5pm at Wacker & Wabash. The leader of the #coup is just going back to the presidential villa? Oh, damn no”

In a statement to Newsweek, the group added: “This was an attempt at a coup this time it is unlikely to succeed, but the risk of a failed coup must be taken seriously and the conditions must be created for them to return sooner or later to take back power – with or without Trump

“What remains is a block of elected officials who see and act as if the Biden government is illegitimate, and an armed street fighting force who on demand dominate the public square. They will continue for their white supremacist, xenophobic and patriarchal Program Fight And they will continue to undermine the concept of truth, leaving tens of millions of people vulnerable to the demands of the demagogues and the most heinous conspiracy theories

“Trump is Still in Power There are 13 days when he and / or his supporters pose a real and present threat to humanity”

“The 6 January will be a dark day in United States history, but our democracy will prevail against the violent crowd that raided our Capitol. In two weeks, President-elect Biden will take office and begin healing our nation

Florida Rep Val Demings tweeted, “A mob storming the US Capitol to overthrow an election A coup in progress A dark day for America

“But that’s what they always wanted. Don’t let them deny it You will lose We will not be intimidated Democracy will win”
