Saturday 21st January saw 1000s take part in a Women's March against Trump in Dublin, a local solidarity march with the Women's March on Washington. It's estimated that 1% of the US population took to the streets to protest the Trump presidency that day with solidarity protests in dozens of cities around the world including Belfast.
The key question in the aftermath of the march is, are the movements going to be led into some sort of 'Michelle 2020' pacifism allowing the Republicans to run rampage for four years?
Or will it instead take to the streets and workplaces to actively prevent the implementation of his policies along the lines suggested by veteran organiser Angela Davis from the platform at the Washington DC march.
She called for a movement built around an “inclusive and intersectional feminism that calls upon all of us to join the resistance to racism, to Islamophobia, to anti-Semitism, to misogyny, to capitalist exploitation.
"Yes, we salute the fight for 15 [campaign for 15 dollar per hour minimum wage]. We dedicate ourselves to collective resistance. Resistance to the billionaire mortgage profiteers and gentrifiers. Resistance to the health care privateers. Resistance to the attacks on Muslims and on immigrants. Resistance to attacks on disabled people. Resistance to state violence perpetrated by the police and through the prison industrial complex. Resistance to institutional and intimate gender violence, especially against trans women of color.”
