More than 100,000 Fill Civic Center

More than 100,000 demonstrators for women’s and minority rights with lots of anti-President Trump signs filled Civic Center. They joined half a million marchers in Washington, D.C., and millions worldwide in a show of passion for a variety of causes, but mostly opposing the Trump agenda, especially on social issues. It is a sign that polarization continues in the U.S. and that the anti-Trump forces are equal to Trump’s when they feel threatened.

It is not clear if the rally will become a movement, but the next few years will not likely just be a wait for a 2018 midterm vote. Saturday launched a reinvigorated left after the disappointing election result. America is very likely to see direct political action all the way to November 2018.
