Controversial 'Trans Day of Vengeance' has been cancelled

Organizers justified the suspension due to "the flood of raw hatred directed toward the trans community after the Tennessee shooting."

The 'Trans Day of Vengeance' due to be held next Saturday has been cancelled. It was announced by the activist group Our Rights DC on its social media networks, where they declare that the event would not be held because it had generated "a credible threat to the life and safety" of potential attendees.

"This threat is the direct result of the flood of raw hatred directed toward the trans community after the Tennessee shooting," the organization pointed out in the post.

Individuals who had nothing to with that heinous act have been subjected to highly serious threats and blamed only because of their gender identity. This is one of the steps in genocide, and we will continue our efforts to protect trans lives.

Our Rights Dc emphasized that the suspension is due to the fact that they cannot guarantee the safety of the event. In an "ideal world" they would have held the meeting in front of the Supreme Court in Washington DC.

Controversial week

'Trans Day of Vengeance' was created by various activist groups, including the Radical Trans Activist Network. Co-founder Tsukuru Fors explained that they changed the word "visibility" to "vengeance" in the name of the annual 'Transgender Day of Visibility' because visibility was no longer enough. Because it was time to "fight back with vehemence." Several media outlets reported that the same institution was collecting donations for weapons training prior to the protest.

On the Monday before this event took place, the attack on the Covenant elementary school by Audrey Hale occurred, which is still suspected to be a hate attack against Christianity.

In addition, reports emerged during the week of escalating violence in certain pro-trans communities, including the existence of a game to kill priests and feminists.

Twitter blocked Voz Media for reporting 'Trans Day of Vengeance'

The event generated so much commotion that Twitter sanctioned accounts that had published content related to the 'Trans Day of Vengeance', including those belonging to media outlets that had reported about the organization of the meeting. Among them, Voz Media.

Despite the cancellation of the protest and the fact that Voz Media was only reporting on the event, @VozMediaUSA is still unable to publish content this Friday.

The social network justified the sanction by claiming that Voz Media's publication violated its internal rules. Specifically, the one that prohibits violent speech. "You may not threaten, incite, glorify, or express a desire for harm or violence," Twitter cited to the media outlet.

However, from Voz Media we insist that it is about defending the right to inform freely, one of the flags with which Elon Musk took the reins of the company a few months ago.
