NEWPORT, R.I. — Organizers plan to hold #ImpeachTrump protests throughout the country on Saturday, including a rally on Aquidneck Island.
In the past week, calls for the president’s impeachment have grown with protests planned throughout the country on Saturday, June 15.
From MoveOn.org Civic Action, a 501(c) organization which primarily focuses on nonpartisan education and advocacy on important national issues:
Join us on Saturday, June 15, for #ImpeachTrump: Act to Defend Democracy, a national day of local action to demand an inquiry into the impeachment of Donald Trump!
Donald Trump’s abuses of our communities and country demand action from Congress, which has the responsibility and authority to hold Trump accountable. The next crucial step is an inquiry into whether to draft articles of impeachment.
On Aquidneck Island, local residents will hold an event called “Aquidneck Islanders for Impeachment.”
The event will take place Saturday, June 15, at 1 p.m. in Washington Square Park, Newport. From the organizer:
Join us on Saturday June 15 from 1 – 2 pm for a dramatic reading of portions of the Mueller Report. We may sing a protest song or two. A prize will be offered for “best sign.”
While registration is not required to attend, you can RSVP here. The event is wheelchair accessible.
