The resistance is alive and well

In a statement provided to WUSA 9, activist and Greenpeace Inc. Board Chair Karen Topakian says, “People in this country are ready to resist and rise up in ways they have never done before. While Trump’s disdain and disrespect for our democratic institutions scare me, I am so inspired by the multigenerational movement of progress that is growing in every state. Greenpeace has used nonviolence to resist tyrannical bullies since 1971, and we’re not going to stop now.”

“The sun has risen this morning on a new America, but it isn’t Donald Trump’s,” said Pearl Robinson, one of the activists on the crane. “Now is the time to resist.”

 

 

The Success of the Women’s March on Washington

On Saturday January 21st, women from all overt the nation joined together in Washington D.C. to commence a women’s march as protest to the new White House leadership.

No arrests were made during the Women’s March on Washington Saturday, according to a top official in the capital.

The peaceful protest, which had an estimated 500,000 in attendance, was so much larger than its expected size that the march route had to be altered and couldn’t pass the White House as planned.

D.C. Homeland Security Director Christopher Geldart told NBC news that despite the massive crowds, no arrests were made. On Friday after the inauguration, protests led to the arrests of more than 200 people and the use of pepper spray and stun grenades by police.

People attended sister marches nationally and globally, including in Antarctica. Current estimates place the national turnout at 3 million.
