Progressive activist groups are planning a nationwide protest over Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russia interference in the 2016 presidential election.
The activist groups are gearing up to protest because they anticipate Attorney General William Barr will not release the full Mueller report.
NBC News described the planned protest, and reported, “With hundreds of locations set across the country, Stand Up America, MoveOn.org, Indivisible and Public Citizen are among the groups orchestrating the April 4 “Nationwide Day of Action.”
According to NBC News, the activist groups originally planned to protest over Barr refusing to release any of the original report but since the attorney general plans to make public part of the Mueller report, activists are changing the focus of their planned protest.
Moveon.org created the website, “Trump is not above the law,” for activists to get involved with the nationwide protest.
About 50 progressive activist groups are backing the protest effort, from environmental activist groups to the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).
The Nationwide Day of Action got a boost from MSNBC’s host Rachel Maddow.

Efforts by progressive activist groups are effective because they push Democrats to take extreme positions.
