Janesville, WI - Over 40 activists are occupying the Janesville Holiday Inn Express lobby demanding the hotel cancel Trump's rally tomorrow, March 29. Some of the activists are locked together.

The activists are asking for people to call the Janesville Holiday Inn Express now to demand that the hotel not be a “host for hate” and to cancel the Trump event. The phone number is 608-756-3100, then press 1.

Also, in Milwaukee later on March 29, activists are preparing to protest the Republican debate at 7:00 p.m., which will be hosted at the Riverside Theater.

"We will continue to fight against the hate speech that is the Republican Party's platform and in particular the dangerous nature of Donald Trump's campaign," says Tracey Pollock of Freedom Road Socialist Organization. "We know that our brothers and sisters who are occupying the Holiday Inn Express in Janesville and everyone in Milwaukee are part of a national movement to shut down Trump."
