Albuquerque #MarchForTruth

June 3 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

An upcoming demonstration to call for the urgent investigation into Russian interference in the US Election and ties with the Trump administration

This event will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, June 3, 2017 at Tiguex Park beginning at 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning.

As developments continue to unfold about the White House’s potential cover-up and obstruction of justice regarding collusion with Russia, the March for Truth is an opportunity to demand answers, transparency, and truth from elected officials.

With more than 90 cities participating and now with the support of the Women’s March, nonviolent demonstrations demand:

• An independent commission must be established, and Congressional investigations should be properly resourced and pursued free of partisan interests;
• As much information should be made available to the public as possible, and as soon as possible;
• Congress should require Donald Trump to release his tax returns to clarify his business interests and obligations to any foreign entity;
• If crimes were committed or if collusion is discovered, it must be prosecuted.
