OVER ONE MILLION PROTESTERS VOW TO RESIST PRESIDENT TRUMP

aam67dzMore than 1 million people gathered in Washington and in cities around the US and the world on Saturday to mount a roaring rejoinder to the inauguration of President Trump.

What started as a Facebook post by a Hawaii retiree became an unprecedented international rebuke of a new president that packed cities large and small — from London to Los Angeles, Paris to Park City, Utah, Miami to Melbourne, Australia.

The organizers of the Women’s March on Washington, who originally sought a permit for a gathering of 200,000, said that as many as half a million people participated.

Many in the nation’s capital and other cities said they were inspired to join because of Trump’s divisive campaign and his disparagement of women, minorities and immigrants.

In signs and shouts, they mocked what they characterized as Trump’s lewd language and sexist demeanor.
