NWU and UAW Respond to Charlottesville at Trump Tower

Marching Past Trump Tower - W.Phipps ACT-UAW 7902

New York, September 9 – The Labor Parade in NYC is always held the Saturday after Labor Day, and all of the UAW locals in the NY area took it as our opportunity to respond to the racist terror that took place in Charlottesville the month before. While we didn’t expect to see any Nazis that day, we were marching past Trump Tower, home to the #1 white supremacist in the country.

UAW Region 9A marched behind a huge banner that read, “No Trump, No KKK, No Fascist USA!” People watching the march on 5th Avenue literally burst into applause as we marched by. We also stopped in front of Trump Tower for a short demonstration that made our point.
