Socialist Alternative (co-thinkers of the Socialist Party in the US) and Socialist Students US

The election of Donald Trump as president of the United States represents an unprecedented danger to workers, young people, and the oppressed, not only in the US but around the world. A ruthless billionaire businessman himself, Trump promises to carry out racist and sexist social policies. He is preparing to escalate attacks on the environment, unions, and workers' rights, as well as vital social services like public education.

His erratic and nationalist 'America First' foreign policy will further destabilise global politics, and risks provoking more bloody catastrophes.

On 20 (the day of Trump's inauguration) and 21 January, we are joining with others to call for millions across the United States and worldwide to come out in mass demonstrations and student strikes to begin building a powerful grassroots resistance.

The protests on inauguration day could be the biggest demonstrations against the inauguration of a US president in history, and the student strikes could be the biggest since the Vietnam War.

While the biggest fightback will come from workers, women, immigrants, and young people in the US, Trump's election provided fresh confidence to far-right demagogues everywhere. His attacks on Muslims and refugees from war-torn areas like Syria will encourage similar persecution around the world.

And Trump's promise of further deregulation and attacks on workers is part of an international campaign of the ruling class for further austerity. But if mass protests can inflict a defeat on Trump in the US, it will inspire workers around the globe to fight back.

Socialist Students (US), Socialist Students (UK), Sindicato de Estudiantes (Spain), and Sindicato de Estudiantes (Mexico) are joining together to call for global days of action on 20 and 21 January to #ResistTrump.
