Pinata Protest at Trump-Owned SF Tower on March 15
San Francisco to Protest Trump Rally Violence
San Francisco – Activists and community members will join together outside the office building at 555 California Street in San Francisco, at noon on Tuesday March 15, to protest the violence, the corporate greed, the racism, the homophobia, Islamophobia and the anti-immigrant sentiment that Donald Trump has been promoting at his presidential campaign rallies, all across the United States.
Trump owns 30% of the former Bank of America Tower.
The activists assert that Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, has been directly inciting violence at his rallies, using the power of the Presidential election campaign process as his stage.
"Donald Trump’s behavior, in the name of seeking the US presidency, is so outrageous that we must speak out, now,” says Melanie Nathan, of the African Human Rights Coalition. "This type of rhetoric is harmful, not only to the minorities that he targets, but also to the country as a whole. Trump is hurting our country’s image. It is no wonder that he has attracted endorsements and attendees from the KKK. Surely that speaks volumes."
WHERE: Trump Tower San Francisco, 555 California Street, San Francisco, CA
WHEN: March 15, 12:15 – 1:00 PM
HIGHLIGHT: A Trump pinata, with a big head draped in a KKK white hood.
