March For Truth – Charleston
Indivisible Charleston will host a March for Truth to call for an impartial investigation into Russian interference in the US election and ties to the Trump administration
Saturday, June 3rd, 2017 Time: TBD
There is more than sufficient cause for alarm about the role Russian state-led hacking and information warfare played in the 2016 election, and there are crucial unanswered questions about the relationship between the Russian state and Donald Trump, his associates and his campaign. The legitimacy of the United States government may hinge on the answers to these questions. If the President was elected even in part due to collusion with a foreign effort to interfere in our democratic process, then the will of the people has been subverted.
There is an active FBI investigation into these matters, and revelations may emerge any moment. But Congressional investigations in the House and Senate have been slow, under-resourced, and mired in partisan politics. Many Congressional leaders have called for an independent investigation, a special prosecutor or a commission to fairly investigate these concerns. Despite the clear will of the people, their calls have not been answered.
Therefore, we call for a #MarchForTruth to raise our voices and let our elected leaders know that American citizens want answers. The legitimacy of our democracy is more important than the interests of any party, or any President. So, we will rise together to call for a fair and impartial investigation, for the pursuit of truth, and for the restoration of faith in our electoral system and the Office of the Presidency.
Across the country, peaceful demonstrations will be arranged on Saturday, June 3rd. Our goals are simple:
Congressional investigations should be properly resourced and pursued free of partisan interests, or an independent investigation must be established,
As much information should be made available to the public as possible, and as soon as possible,
If crimes were committed or if collusion is discovered, it must be prosecuted.
On June 3rd, Charleston SC will participate in a March for Truth “Sister March”, to the D.C. March.
More details will be forthcoming.
