We all know by now that Trump’s first foreign trips will be to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Belgium and Italy. Trump will visit the Vatican in Rome, have a NATO meeting in Brussels, and with Prime Minister in Israel. But what you might not know about are the hundreds resisting overseas, who are working together to protest these visits in Italy, Israel and Belgium. These mobilizations led by many overseas resistance groups including American Expats for Positive Change, Women’s March Rome, Pantsuit Nation Israel, and Democrats Abroad Israel are yet another example of the important role that the overseas movement must play in the resistance.
The Resistance is Global: Israel Edition: 22 May, 7:00pm, Tel Aviv
Rome Resists: 23 May, 7:30pm, Rome
