Canadian Women’s Solidarity March on Washington – Kingston
January 21, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
On January 21st, people across the United States are gathering in response to the inauguration of Donald Trump. One of Trump’s many offensive actions has been the blatant violation of women. The Woman’s March is an opportunity to show that this behaviour is horrible and not permitted in our world and the our children’s world.
The people of the Women’s March are identified by knitted hats with “cat ears” that are in various shades of pink, symbolizing Trump’s inexcusable comment about “grabbing women by the pussy.”
I am starting this Solidarity March in Canada to show support for our sisters in the States and to show globally this behaviour is impermissible; to show our children it is not okay to treat people and Women’s bodies this way.
The idea is that we will meet in Market square at 10am. Bring your signs, bring your voices, and bring your Pussy hats!
Spread the word and let’s make this a global initiative!
Edit: Another group has also started this initiative at Market Square! I am so happy. I am adding that event link here. https://www.facebook.com/
