Activists of the Black Lives Matter movement issued a new list of demands, including a call for a permanent ban of former President Donald Trump from holding political office and from using social media.
The new list of seven demands was published on the Black Lives Matter website in an article that asked supporters to sign their name to the statement.
The first demand called for Trump to be “immediately convicted in the United States Senate.” They also demanded he be “banned from holding elected office in the future.”
A second demand called for more than half of Republicans to be expelled from Congress:
A third demand asked for the Capitol police, law enforcement, and the military be investigated for any possible ties to white supremacist organizations.
A fourth called for Trump to be permanently banned from all digital media platforms, while a fifth made a familiar demand for the police to be defunded.
A sixth said that lawmakers must not allow the Jan. 6 rioting at the U.S. Capitol to be used to stifle other protests, and their last demand called for more federal oversight over local law enforcement.
The post ended with a call for supporters to add their name to the list of demands.
The BLM movement faced a backlash of criticism after it was revealed in April that co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors, a self-proclaimed Marxist, purchased a $1.4 million home in a Los Angeles neighborhood with predominantly white neighbors.
