There’s a rally set for Saturday at 12:30pm at Seattle Central’s main plaza at Broadway and Pine to protest the Trumpf Administration’s continued assault on the rights for transgender people.
Judging by the Facebook description, it sounds like it’s a rally but it also sounds like it might get a bit “march-y” as well.
WHERE: Broadway & Pine/Seattle Central College
WHEN: Saturday October 27th 12:30 pm
WHAT: Defend trans rights and protest the Trump administration’s bigoted agenda!
Join us in the streets to protest the Trump administration’s most recent attack on trans rights! We will be gathering at Broadway and Pine at 12:30pm on Saturday, October 27th.
The leaked memo from the White House details the cruel ways this administration plans to make our lives harder and harder to live, as has been their plan from the onset. The DHS wants to create a new, false, and unscientific definition of gender
Trans rights — like the rights of the entire LGBTQ community and all oppressed people — will be won in the streets, not by waiting for any phony “resistance” from political elites.
Now more than ever, we need a united movement that truly fights for the rights of all people. Historically, trans people have always been among the first to be targeted or impacted when basic human rights are attacked. The struggle to defend trans people, and educate the working class and all people on gender equality in the deepest spirit of solidarity, is of urgent necessity to beat back the far-right attack. That attack seeks the most vulnerable communities to scapegoat and direct anger, and in fact is an attack on the whole working class.

The Party for Socialism and Liberation fights for a socialist system that protects the rights of LGBTQ and other oppressed people as non-negotiable. Every person must have the guaranteed right to present and identify themselves and love whoever they please, to change without fear of repression, discrimination and bigotry. Under such a system, there will be no need for gender markers whatsoever on government papers, and everyone, regardless of gender, would enjoy the same basic constitutional right to a job, quality education, housing, health care and dignified retirement.
