Resist Trump Tuesday

Wayne Lyman Courthouse

Resist Trump Tuesday! Every Tuesday since the inauguration, protesters have been gathering with some guidance from a couple of local nonprofits, including Eugene Indivisible. So have fun with poster board and markers and come express your opinion of the Dumpsters and what they're doing to this country! Eugene Indivisible typically picks a theme for each week, but you don't have to stick to what they choose. This week's theme is "Where are the Children," referring to the immigrant children who...vanished. From the event page: "Details include customs and immigration officials kicking and punching children, using stun guns on children, verbally abusing children, denying children medical attention, denying children permission to stand or move freely for days, threatening children with torture or sexual abuse, and actually sexually abusing children. For perspective, an ACLU immigration rights lawyer called it “unprecedented…the worst thing I’ve seen in 25+ years of doing this civil rights work.” It’s not just abuse, by the way. Federal Agencies have “lost” nearly 1500 children who were taken from their parents at the border. While some of the children may simply be unaccounted for, there’s also evidence that they’ve been turned over to sex traffickers. By our own government."

Supreme Court threw out North Carolina’s congressional district maps because the State legislature because they used racial profiling to pack districts in one party’s favor. Now the Court must address the issue of gerrymandering based on partisanship. Having ruled against racial gerrymandering so recently, they might rule against rigged elections altogether. We must also campaign for legislation against gerrymandering. Reagan and Obama both came out against rigged elections.
