Sunday, January 29th, 2017. New York City – 30 thousand people’s protectors demonstrated in the Lower Manhattan today.
People’s protectors gathered at Battery Park and marched to Foley Square Park to show support for Muslims, refugees and immigrants.
It was amazing to see thousands of people united in support of each other and in support of those who need to come to this country.
These are some of the photographs I took.
Domingo, 29 de Enero, 2017. Ciudad de Nueva York – 30 mil protectores de la gente se manifestaron hoy en el Bajo Manhattan.
Los protectores de la gente se reunieron en Battery Park y marcharon a Foley Square Park para mostrar apoyo a musulmanes, refugiados e inmigrantes.
Fue increíble ver a miles de personas unidas en apoyo mutuo y en apoyo de aquellas personas que necesitan venir a este país.
Estas son algunas de las fotografías que tomé.
The American people want real change, a change based on compassion and justice, not hatred, intolerance and divisiveness.

This country has never been about one person or one president. It's about the millions of people who speak up and fight for justice.

Demagogues survive by fostering hatred. We won't allow anyone to divide us up by our religion, country of origin or the color of our skin.

Organizers of the rally and march said on Facebook, “In a true show of force, thousands of people descended upon JFK calling for the release of dozens of refugees and immigrants who were being detained, questioned, and refused entry to the United States.
Due to the collective efforts of advocacy groups and organizers in New York, the Federal Court for the Eastern District of New York has now issued a temporary stay halting President Donald Trump’s executive order.
The signing of President Trump’s executive order has affected thousands – refugees seeking asylum and protection who have already been approved for visas, mothers and fathers barred from reuniting with their families, legal permanent residents being denied the ability to return to school or work, and refugees fleeing persecution being forced to return to their countries to death and violence.
WE CALL ON OUR COMMUNITIES TO KEEP UP THE MOMENTUM TO FIGHT THE REFUGEE AND MUSLIM BAN!
Let’s make it clear that we don’t just want a temporary halt, we want human rights and dignity for refugees and immigrants and we want a reversal of these inhumane executive orders NOW.”
