Milwaukee, WI – On May 30, 2024, President Trump was found guilty of 34 felonies in New York State. The Coalition to March on the RNC 2024 recognizes this as the correct verdict, but also wants to note that this will not stop the Republicans’ racist and reactionary agenda.

Regardless of who is nominated at the 2024 Republican National Convention taking place in Milwaukee this July, the Republicans will still be responsible for the conservative takeover of the US Supreme Court. This has lasting effects on abortion and reproductive rights, immigrant rights, and LGBTQ rights. The suffering in Gaza is also cosigned by the Republicans, who recently voted to send $95 billion to Israel for military support.

Trump is complicit in much worse than the crimes he was convicted of today, including the war atrocities of Yemen, environmental regulation cut backs, and stoking the fires in Palestine by moving the US Embassy from the Israel capital of Tel Aviv to occupied Jerusalem in 2018. Although he is the current frontrunner and face of the Republican party, the support of the House and Senate Republicans enabled these detrimental actions.

The Coalition to March on the RNC 2024, now consisting of almost 100 organizations, will march whether Trump is the nominee or not on July 15, 2024, within sight and sound of the Fiserv Forum. The racist and reactionary agenda of the Republicans has no place in our city of Milwaukee, or our country, and we guarantee marching in protest of their hateful policies.
