Earth2Trump, a cross-country roadshow heading to Washington, D.C., that organizers say will build a vast network of resistance to incoming President Trump is coming to St. Petersburg.
The tour is organized by the Center for Biological Diversity in coordination with Food and Water Watch, Sierra Club, Service Employees International Union, Suncoast Waterkeeper, Caloosa Riverkeeper, and many more local groups.
Beginning today in Oakland and Seattle, a pair of Earth2Trump roadshows plan to tour the country, stopping in 16 cities as it progresses toward the presidential inauguration on Jan. 20. The shows will feature national and local speakers, musicians, and an opportunity to join a growing movement of resistance to all forms of oppression and all attacks on the environment.
The St. Petersburg event will include music performances by Lyla June, Casey Neill, and Mountain Holler.
“When we all speak together with a single voice of resistance, our power grows – and so do our chances of defeating the Trump administration,” said Blake Kopcho, an organizer with the Center. “People in St. Petersburg will have a crucial role to play in building this movement and we’re excited to get there.”
The Earth2Trump roadshow of resistance will be 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Jan. 14 at the Ale and the Witch, 111 Second Ave. NE.
