Minneapolis, MN - Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) Political Secretary Steff Yorek called for protests at President Trump's proposed Washington, DC military parade. Speaking to Fight Back! on Feb. 7, Yorek stated, "Trump's military parade cannot be separated from preparations for war on the Korean peninsula, and other places. At a time when the U.S. is waging wars around the world, there is no reason why those of us who support peace with justice should allow Trump's display of military might in D.C. to go forward unimpeded."
In addition to waging wars on Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia and other places, the U.S. is in the midst of a massive military buildup targeting Russia and the People's Republic of China.
"From the Philippines to Palestine, we need to be in the streets demanding 'U.S. out' and resisting new wars," said Yorek. "We insist that resources be directed to addressing real problems that we are facing here at home, as opposed to defending and expanding Wall Street's empire."
Freedom Road Socialist Organization helped organized the march at the Republican National Convention where Trump was nominated, as well as the demonstrations at many of his campaign appearances.
