"It's going to take everyone, on multiple fronts, to save our postal service and our democracy.".
"At 11 am (local time), we will show up at local post offices across the country to save the post office from Trump and declare that Postmaster General Louis DeJoy must resign," said the organizers of Saturday's demonstrations.
Rahna Epting, executive director of MoveOn, tweeted Sunday that "it's going to take everyone, on multiple fronts, to save our Postal Service and our democracy.".
Voicing support for the demonstrations, former Office of Government Ethics director Walter Shaub said "you're either in the last days of this republic or you are going to endure the inconvenience (maybe hardship) of defending it.".
"We have a narrow window to stop a wannabe dictator from sabotaging our elections," Shaub added.
The nationwide demonstrations were announced days after Trump openly admitted he is blocking emergency funding for the Postal Service in an effort to hinder mail-in voting.
"This constitutes a grave threat to the integrity of the election and to our very democracy," the lawmakers warned. »
