American filmmaker Michael Moore took audience members from his Broadway show The Terms of My Surrender on a spontaneous protest to Trump Tower on Tuesday. Moore provided a free bus service for anyone who wanted to protest Trump’s response to the recent violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, at the show’s conclusion.
“Mr President, I’m going to pay you a visit tonight,” Moore tweeted earlier in the day.
Once The Terms of My Surrender – Moore’s one-man show, which opened on Broadway on 10 August at the Belasco Theatre – was over, large crowds took the bus trip to Trump Tower. Actors Olivia Wilde and Mark Ruffalo were among those who joined the protest
Moore provided protesters with placards and electric candles – the candles in honour of Heather Heyer, who was killed during violent clashes in Charlottesville on 12 August. The clash occurred between neo-Nazi marchers and those protesting their demonstration, with 19 others injured.
The Terms of My Surrender has received mixed reviews so far during its run, with The New York Times calling it “as confusing politically as it is theatrically”.
