National Day of Car Protests to Demand Cancel the Rents! - Washington, DC
Join the National Day of Car Protests to Cancel the Rents in Washington DC!
On Sunday, January 31, cities and towns around the country will mobilize to demand: A national cancellation of all rents, mortgages for homeowners, small landlords and small businesses, for the duration of the Pandemic.
As the wealthy rake in billions in profit and trillions in bailouts, working people risk losing everything due to their organized abandonment by the government during the Covid-19 pandemic. Tens of millions of workers who have lost their jobs, their healthcare, and even the knowledge of where their next meal is coming from will soon be facing eviction. The eviction moratoriums nationally and locally have paused millions of evictions but rent debt is still piling up. The looming eviction crisis will hit oppressed communities, already especially affected by the pandemic, the hardest.
Join us on Sunday, January 31st at 12 noon at RFK Stadium parking lot 6 as we form a car caravan to demand that the government cancel all rents & mortgages and stop all evictions. One-time stimulus checks are not enough. Working people need immediate, complete relief from the pandemic -- nothing less!
Please fill out the registration form so we can best coordinate the car protest. We'll go to the CDC and some local sites, and we'll end at the DC Jail to demand the release of prisoners during the pandemic. Remember to RSVP, share the event, and please put a sign that says "cancel the rents" on your car!
