THE FOLLOWING IS FROM A PREVIOUS EVENT IN MAY OF 2016.
DONALD TRUMP IS NOT WELCOME IN SAN DIEGO!
¡Alerta! There is an enemy at our doorstep. Donald Trump is planning to hold a rally at the San Diego Convention Center on Friday afternoon, May 27, 2016.
Unión del Barrio San Diego issues this call to all anti-racists in San Diego, progressives in general, and to the Mexican community in particular, to stand united and oppose this anti-Arab, anti-Black, anti-Mexican, anti-Woman, power-hungry, neo-fascist oligarch who has every intention of taking for himself the highest political office within the current borders of the United States.
Trump and his trumpista followers are anti-Mexican to their core. This man started his presidential campaign attacking our community, and at every one of his rallies he escalates and expands his message of racist and misogynistic aggression. He has created a political climate in this country that threatens the safety of our community, and we have no other choice other than to push back against trumpismo!
We are planning an organized action in defense of our communities beginning at 1:00 pm at Chicano Park.
All of us 100% united against Trump! On May 27th we look forward to struggle alongside compas and allies to defend our communities…
¡Raza Sí – Trompistas No! ¡Alto al Racismo! Alto a la Ignorancia! ¡DONALD TRUMP – FUERA!

Compas, Allies, and anti-trumpistas –
Unión del Barrio in San Diego has put out a call for people to assemble at 1:00 PM in Chicano Park on Friday May 27, 2016. We have been organizing to defend barrios across Southern California for 35 years. The event that will take place this Friday is also a call to defend our community from the aggressively racist and violent rhetoric that has been pouring out of Donald Trump for months.
Ours is a defensive position, and as such our activity on Friday, May 27th will not tolerate any form of physical aggression, not from outside nor from within our activity. We expect the participation of families with children, older people, and fearless undocumented raza at our activity, and their safety and well-being is our priority.
This is a warning to aggressive trumpistas – stay away from us. We have nothing to say to you, nor are we interested in what you have to say. You are a supporter of Trump, and that is all we need to know about you.
This is also a warning to individuals that seek to physically disrupt or are looking to get into an altercation of some sort in order to express your anger about Trump. We understand your frustration, but you will need to express your anger elsewhere, outside of our planned activity. Any person seeking to provoke a physical altercation will be identified as a provocateur and will be asked to leave this organized event.
That being said, we welcome all anti-racists in San Diego, progressives in general, and the Mexican community in particular, to stand united and oppose this anti-Arab, anti-Black, anti-Mexican, anti-Woman, power-hungry, neo-fascist oligarch who has every intention of taking for himself the highest political office within the current borders of the United States.
¡Nos Vemos Pronto! – Friday, May 27th, 1:00 PM, Chicano Park
WHAT TO BRING
Get ready people – We are asking all participants in this event to bring whatever noise making device or instrument you can carry – drums, whistles, air horns, trumpets, etc. The idea is to make the most noise we can possible make, so be creative! Bring whatever flag you want, and the more Mexican flags the better. Trump piñatas, signs, banners, etc. And some good shoes for the march to the Convention Center. Direct your questions to 619/398-6648. Leave a voicemail and we will get back to you.
