“Trump is all about dividing us, pitting Americans against each other, and against the rest of the world. What better way to defeat him than coming together in unity like never before, with globally aware Americans at the forefront.”
A Call-Out from Avaaz, an international, online citizens activist group
Posted September 12th, 2016 on Niagara At Large
Here’s an amazing new way for ALL of us to help stop Trump, and bury his hateful, fear-mongering, sexist, racist politics forever: Over eight million US citizens live outside the US — enough to deliver an election landslide.
Most of them are as horrified by Trump as the rest of us, but only 12% of them vote! So Avaaz has built a simple tool to help Americans vote from overseas!
Registration closes in days — we need to get this tool RIGHT AWAY to every American we or our friends know – share it with EVERYONE: Click to stop Trump now “President Trump” terrifies all of us — he wants to ban Muslims, tear up the world’s agreements on climate change, murder the families of suspected terrorists and doesn’t understand why he can’t use nukes!
Many of us who can’t vote in the US have felt helpless to stop this rise of proto-fascism. Now we can help, by helping our US friends to get in the fight. The crazy thing is no one else is doing this, not even Hillary Clinton’s campaign! \
This could be a game-changer, but we have to make it massive and fast, before registration closes: Click to stop Trump now Trump is all about dividing us, pitting Americans against each other, and against the rest of the world.
What better way to defeat him than coming together in unity like never before, with globally aware Americans at the forefront of an unprecedented global get-out-the-vote effort? Imagine if love and unity didn’t just defeat
Trump’s hate and division, but created an historic landslide defeat. THAT would send the message we need to send to the Donald Trumps in all our countries, and be a powerful positive lesson for all of us and our children and grandchildren.
With hope, Allison, Rewan, Emma, Oli, Ben, Nick and the whole Avaaz team
