Coalition to Protest Trump in Milwaukee
The event will feature nearly a dozen speakers, headlined by the president of the Milwaukee Teachers Education Association and the executive director of Voces de la Frontera.
The Coalition to March on the Democratic National Convention is leading the charge to protest President Donald Trump’s upcoming visit to UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena on January 14, 2020. The Coalition is asking people to show up at Red Arrow Park around approximately 6 p.m.
Twelve local organizations have joined the Coalition to host this action. A handful of other organizations have given endorsements and support. The event will feature nearly a dozen speakers, headlined by the president of the Milwaukee Teachers Education Association and the executive director of Voces de la Frontera. Milwaukee should show up in force, with the possibility of over 4,600 people turning out to the protest.
Ryan Hamann, a leader of the Coalition to March on the DNC and Freedom Road Socialist Organization, explains that the purpose of this protest is to demonstrate that the people reject Trump and everything he represents.
The last time Trump was in Wisconsin, he made sure to discredit the struggles of the dairy farmers who have experienced tremendous losses as a result of his trade war with China. Before that, Trump visited the state to celebrate another disastrous event ushered in by former Governor Scott Walker: the groundbreaking at the Foxconn site in Mount Pleasant.
