The organisers of the Women’s March that was held in Washington earlier this year are set to launch a new campaign to call for the impeachment of US President Donald Trump, who was the inspiration of their protest.
With the holiday season coming, organisers of the new organisation called “March On” have started airing advertisements that are advocating for flipping Congress for the impeachment of US President Donald Trump. At the same time, they are offering red sweaters with the word “impeach” printed on them as their idea of a fun way to raise money for their cause.
The narrator of the advertisement which started airing in America on shows that are popular among the liberals says: “This holiday season, a new wish tops letters to Santa across the land: Impeachment. “This year, instead of fruitcakes and poinsettias, let’s flip Congress for the gift of impeachment.”
Donors are other options if red Christmas sweaters that are adorned with legal terms are not their bag, too. Those who wish to become involved can also pay for small Christmas cards that will be sent to the New York City home of President Trump, wishing the President a “merciful end to your presidency.”
The effort is not the first time that a liberal group has attempt to take a stand against Donald Trump or the first time that people have called for his impeachment. However, it does add a bit of frivolity when compared to the serious advertisement campaign that was launched by Tom Steyer, a billionaire, to warn about the possible dangers of the President.
The executive director of March On, Andi Pringle, informed NBC News: “It’s a fun Christmas gag. It’s really about fundraising, we’re trying to make money.”
Pringle stated that their voice is particularly significant, given the increasing sexual harassment or assault accusation that have plagued powerful men in the private and public spheres during the past months.
Referencing an online movement where women and even some men revealed to one another that they had also been victims of harassments or assaults in their lives, Pringle said: “Because we are the organizers of the Women’s Marches across the country, we are singularly placed to speak to the women’s vote and issue, including the #MeToo movement.”
Many women’s marches were held following the inauguration of Trump, including those that were held in major cities such as New York, Washington, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Researchers have dubbed that demonstration the largest single-day protest in American history.
