Still reeling from President Donald Trump’s election, Antifa anarchists are calling for an international day of action for the anniversary on January 20.

The call to action published on the popular Antifa website It’s Going Down urges people across the globe to participate in solidarity with those who were arrested during the inauguration for rioting and causing chaos and mayhem in Washington, DC.

During the riot six police officers were injured, businesses were vandalized, multiple people were assaulted and a limousine was spray painted and set on fire. The cost of the damage to the city was estimated to be approximately $100,000 by the US Attorney’s office.

The felony rioting charges against the first group of six rioters were dropped by DC Superior Court Judge Lynn Leibovitz, but there are still 188 people who were arrested that day and have to stand trial.

In the call to action to support the rioters, the anonymous contributor wrote that “as the Trump administration brings the world to the brink of disaster on an almost daily basis, it is important to stand with those in the United States who risked their freedom to oppose him from his first day in office. The Inauguration Day protests set the tone for much of resistance that would come and affirmed that the Trump administration and its far right allies would not be unopposed. Subsequently, people around the country used direct action to shut down nearly every international airport in the country in a historic protest that temporarily halted the new government’s anti-immigrant and Islamophobic policies.”
