Yesterday we mourned, today we protest. Update!

Courtesy of Vox:

The Women’s March on Washington on Saturday is set to be huge, drawing more charter bus permit applications than the actual Inauguration Day — of President Donald Trump — it’s protesting and more than 220,000 committing to going on Facebook. 

In fact, the protests look to be so big that currently airplanes full of women are flying to Washington, DC, to join the demonstrations.

Estimates are that the number of anti-Trump protesters today are going to far outnumber the people who showed up for yesterday's inauguration.

Speaking of yesterday's inauguration, get a load of this:


Trump is so embarrassed by this that he has ordered the Interior Department (Who provided the side by side comparison.) to stop tweeting.

By the way these "Sister Marches," as they have been named , are already underway here in America and in other places like Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
Up here in Alaska we have several of these planned all OVER the state, with the one in Anchorage starting around 10"30 AM our time.

 People have been asking what they can do, well this is a great start.

In fact I worked all of yesterday to find a way to attend the Anchorage march myself, but work responsibilities are unfortunately going to keep me close to home.

However I will continue to cover today's protests and to spread the word for this and other protests to come.

Remember, they might be able to stifle the Interior Department, but they can't shut us all up.

And they have only just begun to hear our voices raised in protest.

P.S. By the way, men are perfectly welcome to these "Sister Marches" as well, as the great Nick Offerman explains quite eloquently to jerkwad extreme Piers Morgan.

Update: Take a look at this.
I have not yet seen reliable estimates on the inauguration crowd size but I would not at all be surprised if this march had already exceeded it.

And that does not even count the marches happening around the world.

Update 2: Another woman offers her support.
The People's President.

Update 3: Women's March in Anchorage.
That is a damn fine turnout considering the weather.

But what can I say? You just can't keep strong women down, now can you?

    Trump and his gang have called for the crowd comparison photos to be removed - which is the 'beginning' of his taking control of the media and various outlets! Trump is a constant liar (proven and factual) and wants nothing more than to control and dictate to all of us!

    I so agree w/you Gryphen! It's a 'start' to get involved in the Anchorage march as well as those in other parts of our state.

    So many of us in Alaska want to counter Trump every step of the way. I thought his speech of yesterday to be horrid and frightening! I view him as being pure evil and think we are going to have to watch everything word and step he takes very, very carefully!

    Remember, it was initially announced Trump won Alaska, but further counting of the votes found Hillary Clinton actually did!

    Yes, even though we are a majority red state, Alaska turned blue! The next step has to be the Republican led Alaska Legislature that has spent us into an abyss! Alaskans will be paying for their inept actions in the years to come. They are a group not to be trusted! Watch them carefully too!

    2. The price you pay for being incompetent.

      Trump has had to keep in the neighborhood of 600 Obama staffers because they haven't been able to replace them yet.

      I imagine some of his orders won't get done or will be very slow to take effect.

      Gonna suck to be him.

      The media has dubbed the Trump protests as the "New Tea Party". But this is mainstream America. This is not an extremist faction of the Democratic Party. And therein lies the huge difference between this movement and the Tea Party.

      Instead of ignoring the throngs of people protesting Donald Trump, the media is paying attention. And that’s great. But as seems inevitable, instead of acknowledging that this is a grassroots movement from the core of the Democratic Party, they’ve decided this is the “new Tea Party.”

      The Tea Party was instigated and funded by big money.

      The people coming together to speak out for civil liberties and equal rights for all are not funded by some corporation, and they are not new. They are the soul of the Democratic Party, of the liberals who are the heart of the Democratic Party.

      I was tied up this morning, but I would have gone to our local march and I'm a registered Republican.

      So I KNOW as a fact that many Alaska Republicans stand with those marching today.

      I think this is a big part of our American problem. Too many people are on the edges and don't believe their can be anyone in the middle.

      If a person is a Republican they must be anti-Democratic Party. If they are Democratic Party they must be anti-Republican.

      There is a huge middle ground there of people like my self who go with the issues and can swing either way depending on the situation and the issue.

      You, 2:20, in my opinion, based on your response to my comment, are part of the problem that makes it hard for this divided nation to meet on middle ground and compromise to get solutions.

    As tens, even hundreds, of thousands of women pour into Washington, DC, for the Women's March on Washington, thousand of sister marches around the world have already taken place.

    From Australia to India, the Czech Republic to the UK, thousands of women have taken to the streets in the name of equality, equal rights, civil rights and economic opportunity.

    Here are a few photos from the marches. Our Across Women's Lives team is in DC at the main march. You can see their coverage all day on social media: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or search for [womenslives] on Snapchat too.

    Our organizers had a permit for 100 people but we had closer to 300 people turn out, and this is a small town! Two police cars were there, but they didn't hassle us, and I was grateful for their protection from the Crazy Trump supporters! We marched for so many good causes....public education, climate change, LGBTQ rights, minority rights, immigration, ACA, reproductive choice, etc....Everyone had signs that they carried proudly.

    Lots of great people from all walks of life, and
    I truly appreciate the men and children who came out too. It's so much more than a Women's March!

    We just got home from Traverse City's march in support of women's and everyone's rights. I think there were easily over a thousand people, maybe even two thousand. The march was peaceful, the signs were plentiful and either really to the point or funny but also to the point. It felt so good to walk among people who feel the way we do.

    Watching Trump sign his first executive order - to eliminate a program that helps lower income house buyers reduce their FHA mortgage rates - surrounded by gleeful millionaires, including his children, members of Congress and others made me so furious that nothing could have kept me from marching in my town today. Let us keep up the momentum and win back the Congress in 2018.

    PS I hope the news outlets filming these amazing events around the country and the world finally realize that "we" are "the people" for whom the Constitution was written and are angry.

      These marchers are not violent and they are not looters. They are marching because they care about the rights of all people and about the duty we owe to those less fortunate and, above all, to our planet. We are now in the hands of people who only want to destroy lives, futures and the environment. Anon at 10:59 am, you are sorely mistaken. The GOP is no friend to you.

    They have not shown even a teeny, tiny inkling of investigating him for anything, and I'm pretty sure they're savvy enough to understand that any crap that gets flung on Trump will hurt them, too.

    White House press secretary Sean Spicer had no comment on the march except to note that there were no firm numbers for turnout because the National Park Service no longer provides crowd estimates.

    The Women's March on Washington appeared to accomplish the historic feat of drawing more people to protest the inauguration than the ceremony itself attracted.

      I personally think the number was far beyond one million. Small towns like mine would never had made the count and I think there were lots of small towns where people marched. And then think of the people who were there in spirit but whose health made it impossible to join in physically. We are many more than one million. And Trump's handlers know that - if only because he lost the election by at least 2.9 million votes. And that's here in the US.

Imagine each one of today's marchers bringing just one more person to the next march! Protest must now become our way of life. Complacency brought us this evil man, and activism will get rid of him. We must be ever vigilant and never let our guard down. I plan to commit to at least one protest per month, and so has my husband. If there is one good thing about this horrid election, it is that we have awakened!

  63. Tonight, Seattle's Q13 Fox News put their own slant on the protests, framing the purpose of the marches as conciliatory. Typically, there is one male and one female anchor, but tonight there were two women, including one I've never seen before. Maybe this was intended to fortify their viewpoint, but if so, it didn't work. It was almost laughable.

    Yesterday, they gushed, people protested the election results, but the enormous numbers of marchers today, all over the world, just wanted to show their desire to work together with President Trump. One of them summed it up as "a different narrative," not seeing the irony in her own words.
