Trump was convicted. Gaza still bleeds

Millions of people are rejoicing because Trump was convicted and could even be sent to jail. Why shouldn’t he be locked up?

The billionaire scoundrel who incites racist violence and whose actions helped kill hundreds of thousands during the COVID pandemic should have been punished a long time ago.

Meanwhile, Gaza’s children continue to be murdered. Despite the worldwide outrage at Netanyahu’s bombing of a tent camp in Rafah, Genocide Joe Biden is sending more bombs to the Zionist apartheid regime occupying Palestine.

The same day Trump was convicted, U.S. and British planes killed at least 16 people in Yemen, one of the poorest countries on earth. More than 377,000 people have died in Yemen in a war instigated by Big Oil and Wall Street. 

A string of U.S. presidents have blood on their hands because of these crimes against Yemen. Forty thousand Palestinians have been killed in Gaza. Both Donald Trump and Joe Biden are war criminals.

No justice for poor people

Why isn’t Trump in jail right now? Every night, 448,000 people who haven’t been convicted are kept incarcerated because they can’t afford bail. 

Prisons are concentration camps for the poor.

Kalief Browder was 16 years old when he was arrested. The Black teenager spent three years in New York City’s notorious Rikers Island jail complex without ever being brought to trial.

Too poor to post bail, Browder was repeatedly beaten and spent 800 days in solitary confinement. The trauma caused Kalief Browder to take his life three years later. 

Fox News is howling because of Trump’s conviction. Where were they when five Black and Latinx teenagers — Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana, and Koney Wise — were railroaded to jail? 

They were arrested in 1989 during a media frenzy after an assault in Manhattan’s Central Park. In response, Donald Trump bought full-page ads in four New York City newspapers demanding a return of the death penalty.

The “Exonerated Five” were finally freed because DNA evidence proved that someone else committed the crime. Over $41 million was paid in compensation to these frame-up victims. Yusef Salaam is now a member of the New York City Council.

Only the people can stop all the Trumps

Trump’s campaign has raised millions following the ex-president’s conviction. Contributors include billionaire hedge fund operators who gamble on the stock market.

Every bankster, corporate CEO, greedy slumlord, and trigger-happy cop has some Trump in them. Many in the capitalist class, however, are supporting Biden instead.

Millions of people are justifiably worried about Donald Trump returning to the White House. Yet it’s Joe Biden who’s threatening war with Russia by giving the green light to attacks on Russian missile and radar facilities.

It’s a lie that Trump is anti-war. Both the Biden and Trump administrations made plans for a war against the People’s Republic of China. Both Biden and Trump helped kill Palestinians.

We need to continue to demonstrate for Palestine, fight evictions, defend protesters, and organize unions. All out to Washington, D.C., on Sat., June 8, to surround the White House to stop the genocide in Gaza!

Only the power of the people can stop all the Trumps!
