[haw-info] Join the HAW (Historians Against War) contingent at Saturday's March in NYC!
Donald Trump has called for a new nuclear arms race and America "winning" wars again. He has appointed a slew of militarists to top offices, and endorsed sweeping attacks on basic civil liberties in the name of fighting terrorism. He mocks human rights and human decency, and consorts with anti-Semites and white supremacists. He is a threat to the people of the world, and to every person living in the United States.
We need a new antiwar movement to confront Trump, and New York City is a good place to start. Just as we challenged George W. Bush's drive to invade Iraq on February 15, 2003, we call on New Yorkers to turn out on Saturday, January 21, 2017. Specifically, if you are a historian, a scholar or teacher, or just a historically-minded activist, we invite you to join the HAW Contingent of the Women's March in New York. We will gather at the southwest corner of 45th Street and Second Avenue, at 12:30 pm to march south from Dag Hammarskoljd Plaza.
