March on the Democratic National Convention 2020

Milwaukee, WI--The Coalition to March on the DNC is excited to announce  a rally and march on the opening day of the Democratic National  Convention, Monday, July 13, 2020.

“All eyes will be on  Milwaukee when the people’s movements protest outside the DNC as it  takes place at the Fiserv Forum, July 13 thru July 16th, 2020. The  Coalition calls on all progressive, left, democratic and socialist  organizations to join us in unity,” says Omar Flores, spokesperson for  the Coalition.

“In forming the Coalition, we already applied for a  permit to rally at Red Arrow Park and to march within sight and sound  of the Fiserv Forum. We will be holding our first organizing meeting in  Milwaukee in the coming weeks,” continued Flores.

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.

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:

- End US Wars and Interventions / Money for Human Needs, Not War
- Community Control of the Police / Stop Police Terror
- 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!”

Our solidarity will be based on respect for a diversity of tactics, and the plans of other groups.

The press conference is Thursday, April 4th, 6:30 PM at Milwaukee City Hall.
