WASHINGTON – More than 100 actors and musicians have signed a “United Against Hate” manifesto calling on U.S. voters to block Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s path to the White House.

The signatories include actors Julianne Moore, Jane Fonda, Bryan Cranston, Kerry Washington and Neil Patrick Harris, filmmakers Michael Moore and Michael Mann, rapper Macklemore, and musician Moby.

“We believe it is our responsibility to use our platforms to bring attention to the dangers of a Trump presidency, and to the real and present threats of his candidacy,” the manifesto said.

“Donald Trump wants to take our country back to a time when fear excused violence, when greed fueled discrimination, and when the state wrote prejudice against marginalized communities into law,” it said.

Among the groups targeted by Trump’s rhetoric, according to the manifesto, are Mexicans and Latinos, blacks, Muslims, women, Asians, refugees and LGBT people.

“Some of us come from the groups Trump has attacked,” the statement said. “Some of us don’t. But as history has shown, it’s often only a matter of time before the ‘other’ becomes me.

“We call upon every American to join us – to stand together on the right side of history, to use the power of our voice and the power of our vote to defeat Donald Trump and the hateful ideology he represents,” the manifesto said.
