I couldn't go because my volunteer commitments are from 9 AM - 1 PM on Saturdays, but one of the women I work with who doesn't come in until 12 went and she was so amped, it was really awesome to see. Glad some people from the Ference were out and about today, as well.

Next time, make sure you put your name on the list and then you can show up at the last minute and be in the front!

i saw a sign on the news coverage of the marches just a moment ago, apparently from the communist party that said "don't grab em by the pussy, seize the means of reproduction"

Got back uptown a while ago after going to NYC Women's March

Serious and Glorious! Sooo many people!!!
AsI have attended some of the biggest marches in NYC over the decades...
the Climate Change March
the Anti-Nucear Weapons March (tied into the General Assembly of The UN opening Fall session) back in the 80's
and the major Anti-Vietnam War Moratorium marches

The Anti-Nuke Weapons March was near 1,000,000 protesters!

Today the crowd was stuck for a long time and finally people started breaking off the waiting groups and marched up different avenues, and across Mid-town. There werepeople everywhere!

We (me and my sis) after about 1 1/2 hrs of waiting gave up the idea of marching from where we were on 2nd Ave & 50 St were the marchers were not moving at all to finally slowly going southward
to the designated staging area on 47th between 1st & 2nd Ave to pass by and then officially march across and up from there.

We instead along with some others headed west on 51St toward 5th Ave. We could see major groups of people southward of us in the distance. We finally got to 5th Ave and stayed e for 1 hour plus as people marched by. As we headed there could hear the roar of the crowd from 1 plus Ave away (equivalent of about 1/4 of a mile)!

So many great home made signs! Good chants!

We joined the march for a little bit (her knees were bothering her) but at the point were you could see trumps tower just past St Patrick's Cathedral.

Felt very good, and thrilled as we heard other people report or she got info from Pants Suite Nation photos, vids and attendance counts from the rest of aaUSA's major cities, ad well as from around the world, littler marches in small
cities, big towns all around d the USA!

Yay, people!

Obviously people have be in it for the long haul... But this was very moving!

We're thinking around 300,000 marchers.

On his first day in office, Trump broke 34 promises

EDIT: Trump promised to announce withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership on day one.

This one happened today.

The only other protest I've seen here that compares to what I saw today was the big Iraq war protest... But I don't think that was as big as today.

When you got off the subway at grand Central you could hear the marchers from deep underground. It was inspiring, especially after a day of awfulness.

I'll give him the rest of the month.

Though I mean I'd rather he be a liar and do what's best.

Not only because it's what's best, but because the Clintonian irony of being a liar would just be gold with Trump supporters.

It's just fun to point out how impossible all of the campaign promises he made are.

Well come on, he couldn't do all that when he had to send his mouthpiece out to lie about his inaugural crowds

Priorities!

One more link from me. You'd think I just discovered that r/politics isn't a wasteland anymore today or something:

Today was a truly inspiring day. To see the images of people across the globe coming together in support of equality and freedom was exactly what I wanted to see on the first day of the administration...

Was neat to be a small part of it in Nashville, TN today.

Women's March by Blake Dover, on Flickr

Also lol at the administration's attempt to lie their way through a pointless dick-measuring contest about crowd sizes. What an utter embarrassment.

Don't worry everyone. It was all fake news. Trump's crowds were indeed 1.5 million and the marches were nowhere near the size reported.
MSM and libtards everywhere are so silly.
(Fwiw I got this correct info from thr Breitbart comments board)

So today the President argued about crowd size despite clear photographic proof to the contrary, declared that the free media would, and I quote, "pay a big price" for telling the truth, and oh by the way, also said that we should have taken Iraq's oil and "maybe we still will."

He did this all in front of a memorial to dead members of an agency that he's spent the last month attacking (and who is also, btw, investigating his ties to Russia).


Day one.

Even if that 1.5 million number were true...it's still smaller than the number that showed up for Obama (1.8 million), so...good job still underselling your candidate, Trump supporters .

Loving all the photos from the marches, by the way . There were a couple of those here in Iowa, but they weren't near where I live.

Trump General Discussion IV: Unpresidented! Very sad!

To be honest, I think it's silly to stoop to his level and make a travesty about him being insecure about the size of his... crowds.

D.C. is very very liberal. It's not shocking that nobody showed up
