Watched Trump’s threat filled speech tonight. It was shocking and beyond the bounds. Its aim was to intimidate and paralyze millions seeking justice. Its intent was to force us to withdraw into private life.
What Trump doesn’t realize is the genie is out of the bottle. No one is going to shrink at this moment. Our demands are just, our mode of struggle is non violent and mass in character, our coalition is broad in scope and diverse in composition, our terrain of struggle is in the voting booth and the corridors of political power as well as on the streets, and, like the old civil rights leaders, our eyes are on the prize and ain’t nobody going to turn us around.
