We are writing in the name of the broad coalition which is organising the Berlin demonstration on 20 January, the day of Donald Trump’s inauguration (http://the-coalition.berlin/no-to-global-trumpism/). The theme of the demo is “no to global Trumpism: time to act”
Nearly everyone has a good reason to demonstrate against the Trump symptom. Whether rampant racism, sexism and anti-feminism or attacks on trade unions and the growing danger of war. This is why we hope for a broad and colourful demonstration and would be pleased to receive the support of your organisation.
The demonstration is part of a wave of international demonstrations on 20-21 January. It starts at 5pm, where we will be protesting the offices of Alternative für Deutschland (Schillstraße 9). We will then march to a final rally at Brandenburg Gate, near the US embassy.
As demonstrating costs money, we would also appreciate financial support. We suggest the following contributions:
large organisations: €100
small organisations: €20-€50
individuals: decide how much you can afford
Please send all money to the following account
Account holder: linksjugend solid Berlin e.V.
IBAN: DE62 4306 0967 0034 2537 00
Bank: GLS Gemeinschaftsbank e.G.
Verwendungszweck/Purpose: the coalition
Contributions are presently not tax-deductible.
“The Coalition” is strictly nonpartisan, though individual members might be active within a range of political parties or nonpartisan groups, initiatives, and NGOs. Linksjugend [solid], the youth wing of the party Die Linke, has kindly offered to let us start a sub-account with them until we are able to open our own account, but the funds will in no way be used by the Linksjugend [solid] or the party Die Linke.
If your organisation is prepared to support the demonstration and our call to action, please send the name of the organisation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions, please contact us
