Defense of Democracy

Clarksville Indivisible is hosting an emergency vigil to confront the growing corruption scandals enveloping the Trump administration.

This week in Helsinki, Finland, Trump stood before the world and defended his lie that Russian intelligence services never interfered with the 2016 U.S. presidential election to help Trump win.
 
And yet Trump’s collusion to cover up the Putin regime’s ongoing attacks on U.S. elections is only a small part of the corruption scandals surrounding this administration: separating families at the border and detaining children in jail; attacking the free press and the rule of law; rampant conflicts of interest; and nominating for the Supreme Court a candidate who argues that U.S. presidents should be above the rule of law.
 
This action will be one of more than 100 taking place Wednesday evening across the country to confront corruption and demand democracy.  Please bring a candle for the candlelight vigil – or else download a free candle app on your phone.  Appropriate signs are also welcome.  But most of all, please turn out!

We'll meet at the fountain in the Downtown Commons in Clarksville, TN, across from the Regions Building. Republican congressmen Marsha Blackburn whose politics align with Trump (and is currently running for Senate, btw) has an office inside the Regions Building. 

By choosing to attend this event, you are committing to participate non-violently and in accordance with the law, to work to de-escalate confrontations with others, and to behave lawfully to ensure the safety of event participants.  You also acknowledge that you are solely responsible for any injury or damage to your person or property resulting from or occurring during this event, and that you release all event sponsors and organizers (and their officers, directors, employees, and agents) from any liability for that injury or damage.
