Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)
Today millions of women, men, and children took part in over 600 marches worldwide, including an estimated 500,000 in Washington D.C. alone. The D.C. march dwarfed the inauguration, with only 400 buses permits issued yesterday while over 2000 were issued today, and the D.C. Metro’s official Twitter feed highlighted the huge difference in riders and parking availability while the Los Angeles Times’ Matt Pierce cited Google Maps data showing it would take at least 20 minutes to walk from the back of the rally to the speaker’s stage. But several Canadians were detained and asked if they were pro- or anti-Trump, and were refused entry after they said they planned to attend the D.C. march. Do today’s marches herald a renaissance of progressive resistance?
