For those of you who may think at times that email and telephone campaigns of resistance may just be acts of futility, we’ve got some good news:
Thanks to the campaign launched late last week to urge the Rockettes not to perform at the Trump Inauguration, the dancers are now no longer required to attend. FiveMinuteResistance.org and hundreds of other sites promoted the action.
As the New York Times reported:
Within hours of confirming plans to appear at the inauguration of Donald J. Trump, the Radio City Rockettes were plunged into a maelstrom of social media outrage on Friday amid reports that the performers were contractually obligated to dance at the ceremony or lose their jobs.
That’s a big victory, and a validation of what we’re all doing.
Forward March, O Resisters!
