Watch Women Of The World March Against Trump: The Crowds Are Enormous
While Trump’s press secretary used his first (and pretty short) conference to accuse the media of, as the administration insists, understating the crowd present at the Inauguration and prove the photographs from Obama’s and Trump’s ceremonies wrong, hundreds of thousands people all over the globe took the streets and led mass protests against the 45th President of the United States, who was already sworn in, on Sunday and Saturday (January, 21 and 22).
Not only pretty much every big city or town in the U.S. experienced women’s arches, but European, Australian, Latin American, African and Asian capitals and major cities joined the movement to draw attention to the controversial statements of the new American leader, as they appear to be of the character, which violates human rights and liberties.
Some estimates professional photographers and crowd counting experts made claims that more people attended the Washington March then the Inauguration ceremony, adding that approximately 400,000 people took the streets of Trump’s hometown – NYC and 100,000 people marched in London, UK. The total number of the worldwide participants may be as high as 5 million of people.
The messages woman of different professions and backgrounds, as well as men, who supported the initiative, and even sayings on their posters were similar all over the world. The Women’s March participants stood for human rights and women rights in particular, affordable healthcare, environmental protection and raising global warming awareness, the rule of law diversity, equality liberty, justice and respect for all, marched against racism, violence and hate, stated that it’s love, but not hate that makes America great. They sent the new administration not only protests but also the bold message that they won’t observe the violations of human rights and unlawful policies silently.
American photographers and their colleagues from all continents took these impressive pictures of crowds marching on the streets and standing against the new president. Even Antarctic scientists sent a picture with the anti-Trump sayings and posters for human rights protection.
Some argue that people need to calm down, accept the obvious truth and give Trump a chance, some can’t even hear these promptings, but the reality is that the world, along with the U.S. citizens, has yet to calm down after the Inauguration.
