Protesters Prepare For Women's March After Trump's Inauguration

Just over 10 weeks after the idea was first proposed in a Facebook post, tens of thousands of protesters are heading to the nation's capital for the Women's March on Washington on Saturday.

Similar marches are planned in more than 600 other cities and towns around the world. But the largest is expected to take place in Washington, D.C., less than 24 hours into the presidency of Donald Trump.

Organizers are expecting around 200,000 marchers to gather on the National Mall. To accommodate the throng of visitors, Washington's Metro subway system will add trains and open two hours early — at 5 a.m. — on Saturday.

A four-hour rally is expected to kick off the march near the National Museum of the American Indian. It will feature speeches by Angela Davis, Gloria Steinem and the mothers of Trayvon Martin and Eric Garner, as well as musical performances by artists including Janelle MonĂ¡e, Maxwell and the Indigo Girls.

A similar march will occur in Salisbury, starting at the cupcake shop, ending at the jewelry store around the corner.

What a waste of time. Why wish trump to fail. If he does we all suffer. Seems like these people have too much free time.

I just dont understand the protests. These people are headed to washington to protest how trump treats women?? really. They have a tape of locker room talk that most males have done also. Then they are listening to the fake news of the main stream media. Mostly lies. What they need to do is protest Bill Clinton. He has already been impeached for actions against women. He is still at it. If these "women" need to yell and scream, then do it towards Bill. it will make more sense than what they are doing.

I wonder how many realize the march organizer is affiliated with CAIR & Hamas? Hell, they didn't even do their homework on the half-truths they're repeating like parrots.
