As regular readers, you know that AIM has taken every opportunity over the years to express its staunch opposition to communism. So it caught our attention when the grassroots Anticommunism Action Team (ACAT) announced it is pushing back against the numerous celebrations that communists hold worldwide on May 1st every year.
Imagine the folly of celebrating communism which has killed at least 100 million people in its first 100 years. Friends of AIM can help push back by:
- Writing articles and blog posts
- Participating in planned protests at the Vietnamese embassy in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, April 30th and the nearby Cuban embassy the next day, Sunday, May 1st
- Joining the twitter rally which will take place Friday, April 1st at 1 p.m. ET. It will only take a few minutes to re-tweet ACAT’s tweets (Forget the 100 million dead. Party like it’s 1917! #MayDayMadness)
Participants so far include:
- Prof. Paul Kengor and prolific anti-Castro writer Frank de Varona who both sent articles
- Cuban author and filmmaker Agustin Blazquez who sent a short story about what life would be like in U.S. under communism
- Tea Party Patriots’ Jenny Beth Martin who will write a column in the Washington Times
- Bear Witness Central and LibertadUSA news websites (team coverage)
- A Congressional office that will be putting out messages on social media
You can track the effort’s progress and see pushback items as they come in here.
If you are interested in being at the embassies or are willing to publish something, please contact ACAT directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
