Saturday, January 20, 2018. New York City – Thousands rallied and marched in “The Capital of the World.” People’s protectors lined up along Central Park West between 62nd and 82nd. After the rally, they marched to Times Square.
Last year, I covered the Women’s March on Washington D.C. This year I covered the Women’s March on NYC. Click here to see pictures from 2017.
Organizers said, “(we) raise (our) voices again to demand equality for all humans at the 2018 Women’s March on NYC.
Over the past year, basic rights for women, immigrants, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, the religious and nonreligious, people of color and even Mother Earth have struggled to survive under the weight of the current administration. America’s First Amendment has been challenged and healthcare for millions has been threatened. We must stand together to demand and defend our rights. Let your voice echo from the streets of New York City to the capital city. Show the world that red, white and blue are colors of tolerance.”
Some of the organizations that marched were: “The National Indigenous Congress (CNI) was constituted on October 12, 1996, as the home of all indigenous peoples, a space where originary peoples can find shared thought and solidarity to strengthen their struggles of resistance and rebellion, with their own forms of organization, representation and decision-making. It is the house of the indigenous peoples, tribes and nations we are, speaking Amuzgo, Binnizá, Chinanteco, Chol, Chontal of Oaxaca, Chontal of Tabasco, Coca, Náyeri, Comcac, Cuicateco, Kumiai, Lacandón, Matlazinca, Maya, Mayo, Mazahua, Mazateco, Mixe, Mixteco, Nahua, Ñahñu, Ñathô, Popoluca, Purépecha, Rarámuri, Tepehua, Tepehuano, Tlapaneco, Tojolabal, Totonaco, Triqui, Tzeltal, Tzotzil, Wixárika, Tohono Oódham, Mame, Tlahuica, Guarijío, Sayulteco, Yaqui, Zoque.”
“Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network is an international network of organizers and activists working to build solidarity with Palestinian prisoners in their struggle for freedom. Samidoun developed out of the September-October 2011 hunger strike of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, seeing a need for a dedicated network to support Palestinian prisoners. We work to raise awareness and provide resources about Palestinian political prisoners, their conditions, their demands, and their work for freedom for themselves, their fellow prisoners, and their homeland. We also work to organize campaigns to make political change and advocate for Palestinian prisoners’ rights and freedoms.”
