The White Rose Society began as an anti-Nazi resistance group centered on non-violence and intellect in early 1940’s Germany. Their campaigns against Hitler and the dangers of fascism were practiced anonymously, mainly through the distribution of informational leaflets and pro-peace propaganda. The six most recognized members were arrested by the Gestapo in 1943, tried for treason and other petty crimes, then beheaded.
Their actions were remarkable, brave and necessary.
It appears those actions may once again be required. The White Rose Society has relaunched, with chapters springing up across the country (and across the globe). Donald Trump’s hatred, bigotry and stupidity will no longer be laughed off or ignored. The people are mobilizing in efforts against him.
The White Rose Revolt operates on kindness, openness and inclusivity. They have invited groups anywhere to begin using their name so long as the mission of the group falls in line with the White Rose Society’s belief that “We are united based upon one single principal and an ethic of justice – freedom for all to do as they please, as long as no others are harmed in the process. In short, your rights end where another’s rights begin.”
If Trump is filled with hate, then we must be filled with love.
