'opposing capitalism and fascism'

From the Antifa website "It's Going Down:"

"We are calling for a mobile bloc opposing capitalism and fascism at the inauguration. Meet at Logan Circle at 10 am. Organize with your friends and come prepared to defend each other and everyone else who is standing up to the Trump regime.
"This January 20th, thousands of people will mobilize to disrupt Trump’s inauguration, rejecting the tyranny, greed, and bigotry he represents. Many different permitted marches, blockades, and other autonomous direct actions are planned. Those who travel to DC hoping to celebrate Trump’s ascendance to power will find the inaugural ceremonies reduced to a total clusterfuck.
"In this context, we call on everyone who opposes fascism and capitalism to join together and demonstrate how to prevent Trump and his cronies from implementing their program. Let’s bring a vision of a better world to Washington, DC.
"Trump’s presidency represents the largest expansion of state-sanctioned repression and right-wing violence in a generation. We are already witnessing the emergence of far-right ideologies and authoritarian tendencies, from Richard Spencer’s white supremacy to the “Blue Lives Matter” rationalizations of police violence.
"Join us in refusing to normalize Trump’s presidency, smashing his facade of legitimacy. We stand in solidarity with everyone who challenges oppression in all of its forms, everywhere around the world, in favor of dignity, self-determination, and defending our collective well-being.
