(Before It's News)

Students and activists in Houston are organizing two major actions against the inauguration of Donald Trump. On Thursday, Jan. 19, students at the University of Houston are organizing a walkout. They have created a petition, which demands that the university defend students of color and undocumented students against attacks from the new Trump administration. The students will be walking out at 10 a.m. and hold a rally in front of the library afterwards.

Also, over a dozen organizations have formed the Peoples Coalition Against Trump, which will be holding the main action on Inauguration Day. They will hold a rally in front of City Hall at 7 p.m. on Jan. 20 and then march to the federal courthouse on Rusk at 7:30.

Their main demands include: defend the rights of undocumented people; stop the attacks on Muslims, women, and people of color; defend the democratic rights of working people; no to racism, sexism, and xenophobia. They will be leafleting at the Martin Luther King Day parade on Monday, and on campus next week.

Some organizations involved in the coalition are the Peoples Autonomist Federation, Students for a Democratic Society, the Freedom Road Socialist Organization, Houston Area Progressives, the Communist Party USA, Workers World Party, the Peoples New Black Panther Party, the SEIU, and Socialist Alternative.

For more information, please contact the coalition at: houstonagainsttrump@gmail.com
