IT’S ON: Women’s March on Washington estimates 200,000
Undeterred by Trump's Inauguration Committee, the Women's March on Washington is a go "for what is expected to be the largest demonstration around the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump."
The Washington Post reports:
D.C. police confirmed Thursday morning that they have issued a permit for the Women’s March on Washington to gather for what is expected to be the largest demonstration around the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.
The Women’s March on Washington, which is scheduled for the day after the Jan. 20 inauguration, plans to start its rally at Independence Avenue and Third Street SW, in front of the Capitol.
…The Women’s March on Washington’s permit application estimated about 200,000 participants.
Previously, in an “extremely unique” move, the National Park Service, on behalf of the Presidential Inauguration Committee, filed documents barring protesters from the Lincoln Memorial on January 21 — the original location of the Women’s March.
Organizers were undeterred. Plans are set. And thousands continue to RSVP.
Onward, sisters and brothers.
