Our Demands

#OccupyInauguration #SeeYouInDC

 

Occupy Inauguration is a mass rally and protest taking place in Washington D.C. on Inauguration Day, January 20th-21st, 2017.

 

From day one of the new administration, our movements will need to unite and fight to advance the revolution.

 

We reject the domination of Wall Street and the billionaire class over our society, and oppose this rigged political and economic system. We stand against both the danger Trump represents and the corruption that backed Clinton. Neither party represents the interests of the 99%.

 

The goal of this action is to build a new independent coalition movement for the 99% that stands outside the stranglehold duopoly of the GOP and DNC. We recognize the establishments of the Republican and Democratic parties to be part of the problem, so we will not be inviting leadership from, or endorsement by them. We believe the 99% needs its own political representation that rejects all corporate cash and influence, and puts people and planet over profits.

 

We call upon the new president to act on these demands:

  • NO Mass Deportations! We reject Trump’s current plan to deport 3 million people and call for mass resistance against all attacks upon immigrants, refugees, and their families at local, state, and federal levels.

  • Stop ALL Attacks on Human Rights! Bring an end to all forms of discrimination and oppression against women, Black and indigenous communities of color, Latinx communities, immigrants, Muslims, LGBTQ+ people, and disabled individuals.

  • Black Lives Matter! Engage in solidarity with the Movement for Black Lives to end institutional racism and police brutality. Acknowledge the value of BLM’s principles to guide law enforcement practices and affirm the demands of their platform.  End federal funding for police militarization and the racist war on drugs.

  • Honor Treaty Rights for ALL Indigenous First Nations. Cease construction on the DAPL pipeline at Standing Rock and prohibit any further industrial operations on treaty-protected indigenous lands!

  • Get Money Out of Politics and End Corporate Rule! We demand a constitutional amendment be passed to abolish ALL "corporate constitutional rights" and "money equals free speech" that leaves for NO loopholes.

  • Healthcare is a Human Right! We demand Medicare for All and to pass the Disability Integration Act.  

  • A Green New Deal, with massive investments in renewable energy and infrastructure to create tens of thousands of good-paying jobs.

  • ACT Against Climate Change! Halt all construction of new oil pipelines and coal terminals, and place a moratorium on fossil fuel extraction including fracking. We demand a just transition for all energy industry workers.

  • Free College Education and the Cancellation of Student Debt.

  • Electoral Reform and Integrity! We call for a universal Right to Vote, a Ranked-Voting System, and automatic voter registration. End the Electoral College and partisan gerrymandering of voting districts.

  • End Too Big to Fail! Break up the big banks at the heart of the 2008 financial crisis and stop manipulation of wealth before the next economic collapse.

  • NO Permanent War! We call for an immediate end to the bombing of foreign nations, military bases occupying foreign soil, massive U.S. military spending, and the U.S. role as leading arms dealer to the world.

  • End the surveillance state!

  • Grant immediate pardons for all political prisoners and exiles including Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, Mumia Abu-Jahmal, and Leonard Peltier.

  • Pass a federal $15/hour minimum wage.

  • Scrap the Trans-Pacific Partnership! Should the TPP come to a vote, Congress should immediately vote it down.

Until these demands are genuinely addressed, we remove our consent to be governed.

Our first act will be a national bank exit call-to-action on January 20th. We call the American people to remove their money from Bank of America, JP MorganChase, Citi, Wells Fargo and all their affiliates.



Should our demands continue to be ignored we will proceed with further boycotts, labor strikes, and occupations.

 

We know that mass movements are how real change is won, and we are organizing in solidarity with the inspiring resistance at Standing Rock, and all Black Lives Matter actions. We feel that the voices of Black and Indigenous People of Color are crucial to issues of oppression we wish to address in D.C. during the Inauguration.

 

We invite you to involve and express yourself at whatever level you choose. We do not represent any particular party or group, as our focus is on movement building. This action is aimed to confront Wall Street directly and the RNC/DNC's influence over our political system. We support, represent, and welcome a diversity of voices and concerns.

 

We stand in solidarity with our current endorsers and welcome other groups who share this vision to organize with us.

    Asking Trump & his hate-filled, racist, homophobic, misogynistic, oligarchy-serving assmates to do ANYTHING for us mere 99% is beyond ridiculous. The GOP & DNC #1PartyOligarchy have this country by the Constitutional balls & are planning to take the final steps to turn the USA into a series of planet-killing corporations with NO ONE to answer to, NO laws, NO oversight, NO purpose other than to line the pockets of the 1% with absolute impunity. WAKE UP! It’s too late! @potus Obama spent 8 years serving the same #Oligarchy & REFUSED to SAVE US FROM TRUMP when he COULD HAVE! @potus COULD HAVE decertified/nullified that sham of an “election” after his half of the #1PartyOligarchy (#DNC) STOLE the Dem Primary from @berniesanders voters & GUARANTEED a Trump win. He SHOULD HAVE called in the SAME neutral international Election Monitors the USA FORCES on every other country we invade! Trump SHOULD NOT BE taking the oval office! But 50+% of USA VOTED for this lunatic. That’s on @thedemocrats #DNC, @potus, @fbi, #USAttyGen & #DeptOfState offices & those dumbasses who CHOSE the Trump button of HATE. All we have left is watching the acid rain of doom pour out of Trump’s mouth & rain down upon on our doomed heads. We Are Fucked!

    On January 19 in DC a Homes Not Bombs anti-nuclear weapons protest and concert will be held in Franklin Park starting at noon. Speakers include Jill Stein. Medea Banjamin, Col. Ann Wright, Stanley L Cohen, Margaret Flowers, Bruce Wright, Paul DeRienzo, John Penley, Cheri Honkala and others. Rebel Diaz, Room Full of Strangers, Lauren DiGioia and others willl also participate along with other musicians. The list of participants is not complete. A new nuclear arms race will cost billions of dollars at a time when the homeless rates in both DC and NYC are at record levels. In Russia over one million people are HIV positive with little to no medical care. Both countries have a massive problem with opiate addiction and death by overdose. Spending billions on new weapons of mass destruction while latge numbers are poor and suffering with no help and a bleak future is insane. There is also a real possibility that Trump will actually use nukes and so far the weapons of mass destruction threat is not an issue at the Inauguration we hope to change that.

    1. Strikeout and Protest this Monday, Dec, 12 (see below)
    1. Make Electors do their job: Both write to them beforehand, AND tell them he’s UNFIT by gathering in state capitals Dec. 18-19.
    2. Mass in Washington DC Thurs-Sat Jan. 19-21. March on the Capitol on the 20th!
    Any other ideas? Please ‘friend’ me or P/M me. Share this! Thanks!

    It’s of vital importance to repeal the NDAA as soon as possible. Otherwise, protestors are too likely to be thrown in prison indefinitely without due process.
