The Coalition to March on the DNC will host a rally and march on the Democratic National Convention on Thursday, August 20th at 5pm in Dontre Hamilton (Red Arrow) Park Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
We will march behind the slogan “WE CAN’T BREATHE” to continue to the righteous protest against police killings of Black people. We demand real police accountability and an end to police crimes and racist policies that have been enabled by both the Democratic and Republican leaders.
The Coalition to March on the DNC is a broad, national coalition of left and progressive forces, working with dozens of local Milwaukee groups and activists. We are rallying behind demands including but not limited to:
– Community Control of the Police / Stop Police Terror
– End US Wars and Interventions / Money for Human Needs, Not War
– Legalization for All / No More Deportations
– Tax the Rich
– Medicare for All
– Climate Action Now
– Fight to Expand Union and Worker Rights
– We Demand Peace, Justice, and Equality!”
“All eyes will be on Milwaukee when the people’s movements protest outside the DNC as it takes place at the Fiserv Forum the week of August 17th. The Coalition calls on all progressive, left, democratic and socialist organizations to join us in unity,” says Omar Flores, spokesperson for the Coalition.
In previous years, organizers of the Coalition led mass marches that drew tens of thousands to the 2008 RNC in St. Paul, MN, and thousands to the 2012 RNC in Tampa, FL, and the 2016 RNC in Cleveland, OH.
Our solidarity will be based on respect for a diversity of tactics, and the plans of other groups.
