We reject the domination of Wall Street and the billionaire class over our society, and oppose this rigged political and economic system. ~ Occupy Inauguration

Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, who had warned that the November election may be rigged, is spearheading a massive campaign to highlight the flaws in the U.S. election system.
Republican candidate Donald Trump won the election by defeating his rival Hillary Clinton. However, Stein believes that the Trump’s election was not fair, as the U.S. voting system is totally flawed.
Among a slew of activities to block Trump presidency, she has approached the U.S. Department of Justice through her attorney demanding a probe in the election process.
Stein’s attorney has written a letter to the Attorney General Loretta Lynch, asking for an investigation into the integrity of the U.S. election system generally, and the voting machines specifically.
Stein also will hold a rally Tuesday (January 3rd, 2017) and launch the Count My Vote Campaign. Besides the hacking of Democratic Party’s emails, the Stein campaign alleges that the touchscreen voting machines were also hacked and voters’ databases were stolen to facilitate Trump’s win.
The Inauguration Day ceremony will take place on January 20 when Trump is scheduled to begin his four-year term as President.
However, Jill Stein has decided to disrupt the ceremony with a protest against Trump. She is inviting Americans to a new resistance movement christened Occupy Inauguration.

It is a mass rally and protest that will take place in Washington D.C. during the presidential inauguration on January 20-21. “Whether Clinton or Trump wins the White House, we know the voices of the 99% will be shut out,” it is stated on the Occupy Inauguration website.
“We reject the domination of Wall Street and the billionaire class over our society, and oppose this rigged political and economic system. We believe another world is possible, and to get there we will need to build a united struggle and political party for the 99%, to put people and the planet over profits,” suggests the Occupy Inauguration campaign.
Similarly, a leading filmmaker Michael Moore who is a fierce critic of Trump believes that Americans can still overturn the outcome of the U.S. presidential election that Trump won.
Moore also dismissed the election of Trump by the Electoral College electors saying that the process has benefitted the candidate who spewed racism and hate.
He has suggested 5 different things that Americans can do to express their resentment against Trump. Moore said that Hillary Clinton had defeated Trump by nearly 3 million votes in the November presidential election but lost the presidency to him.
Although Trump received majority of the 538 state-by-state electoral votes to win the presidency, his rival Hillary Clinton won 48.2% of the popular vote compared with 46.1% for Trump.
In other words, Clinton got nearly 3 million more votes than what Trump got in the November election. But the U.S. election system declared Trump as the winner.
