London [ENA] An estimated 100 000 people gathered for a march in London, to show solidarity with women and minorities in the United States, who fear that their new administration not only does not reflect their values but actively tries to take away their rights.
In one of many similar events around the world an estimated 100 000 people marched in London, with a single crowd stretching from the US embassy to Trafalgar Square. Chanting "There is more than unites us than divides us", the crowd gathered to show solidarity with women, minorities and many other people in the United States who fear that the new administration will strip away hard fought rights.
The Trump campaign's language and promises let many to worry about the direction the new administration is taking. With the defunding of Planned Parenthood on top of the agenda, vital health care services for women all over the country are under threat. The defunding of organisations working with victims of or towards the prevention of domestic violence is under way and it would seem that President Trump is intent on keeping at least these of his many campaign promises. The crowd included many families with children, determined to teach the next generation the power and value of peaceful protest and democracy.
