In honor of our 7th anniversary, each day this month we will post one of our favorite antifascist actions from around the world from the past year!
Today: June 19 2020 – On Juneteenth protesters in Washington DC tore down
the statue of Confederate general Albert Pike and set it on fire,
chanting “No justice, no peace, no racist police!”.
Donald Trump quickly tweeted about the toppling, calling out DC mayor Muriel Bowser and writing: “The
DC police are not doing their job as they watched a statue be ripped
down and burn. These people should be immediately arrested. A disgrace
to our country.”.
Jubilant protesters read out Trump’s tweet over a bullhorn and cheered.
