The message of a nationwide Sick Out on Inauguration Day will help prepare people for the multiple acts of resistance that will be required by us over the next four years.
The only thing holding us back from engaging in this collective action
is our hesitancy to believe that it is possible.

As protests against the election of Donald Trump continue, many have called on demonstrators to give the president-elect a chance, to “wait and see” what he does in office.
But those curious about Trump’s immediate priorities need look no further than
which he released in October. In it,
he effectively promised that by the end of April he would cancel many of President Obama’s executive orders
that protect workers, immigrants and the environment;
begin barring millions of Muslims from entry to the U.S.;
imprison or deport millions of undocumented workers;
cancel all federal funding to sanctuary cities
climate change programs;
lift restrictions on shale, oil, gas and coal extraction;
fast-track pipeline projects
kick millions of people off their health insurance.
Many of these promises are executive actions
that Trump will be able to enact without the cooperation of Congress.
These are what the Trump campaign has called
the “First Day Project,”
which Trump based on signing at least 25 executive orders that would
seek to “erase … the Obama Presidency.”
